Park­ing row - let­ter writer asks why peo­ple lose sense of de­cency in Dubai

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

“Peo­ple get wrapped up in an ex­pat bub­ble where they don’t have to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for them­selves. A maid does all their clean­ing, nanny raises their chil­dren, a guy pumps their petrol, a guy washes their car, they em­ploy a gar­dener, they sit out­side shops beep­ing and ex­pect­ing the shop­keeper to come to them … A lot of peo­ple for­get what life was like at home when you can’t get away with treat­ing other peo­ple like dirt and they de­velop a sense of self-im­por­tance.”
