Let­ter writer: No I don’t need any­thing else, so stop ask­ing the ques­tion

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

“It’s called “Cour­tesy” and there is no harm to ask you such an in­no­cent ques­tion, sim­ply be­cause maybe, just maybe, you for­got to add a pack of cig­a­rettes or a phone credit to your check out bill from the cashier. I strongly sug­gest you en­roll your­self in an Anger Man­age­ment ther­apy ses­sion where you would learn the ba­sics of hold­ing your anger to some­thing worth being an­gry for.”

NAWAF ABU-GHAZ­A­LEH

“And, while we’re about it, let’s just cut out all ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and ‘have a nice day’ as well. Let’s just all be stone-cold ro­botic and just state the price of things and for­get the value of po­lite con­ver­sa­tion. Sounds like you’re just hav­ing a bad day Jaime!”

CHEER UP!

“It is ev­ery­where in cof­fee shops, clothes shops, ev­ery­where! Once I come to the till I have every­thing and if I need some­thing else I would ob­vi­ously tell you!!! I get so an­noyed with this each time I buy some­thing.”

TRUE

“Couldn’t agree more. Also at ev­ery fast food counter you are force fed an up­size even though you know ex­actly what you need!”
