Guards are there to serve not sit round and gossip

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

In re­sponse to the let­ter about se­cu­rity guards not speak­ing English (May 17), it’s a bit ridicu­lous. What do you want from a se­cu­rity guard, to chat with you? His job is to pro­tect you and his re­spec­tive area not to gossip with peo­ple and an ex­tra ser­vice pro­vid­ing you di­rec­tion to your des­ti­na­tion. If you come out from home and look out in the huge malls you will see that guards will as­sist you in English where and how to reach a place. Se­cu­rity guards know the ba­sic func­tional English to in­ter­act with the peo­ple. With­out know­ing English to pass the DPS exam from DPA is im­pos­si­ble be­cause English is com­pul­sory for solv­ing the pa­per and oral. Are they giv­ing ex­ams in their mother tongue? Are the ex­am­in­ers ask­ing rapid ques­tions in their mother tongue? Don’t crit­i­cise if you don’t have full knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence of any­thing. Fari­doon Shah Dubai and cul­ture? Th­ese type of rules in my opin­ion turn chil­dren and non Mus­lims against the holy month as they're clearly been given the wrong mes­sage. Life doesn’t stop just be­cause peo­ple are fast­ing. Con­fused Mum UAE for the day and stand in line to be given ba­sic ra­tioning. Then live in ac­com­mo­da­tion with 10+ to a room. Grad­u­ates at my work do noth­ing and get paid ev­ery­thing! That is not equal­ity UAE
