Why does ‘wrong’ colour shoe stop me doing PE?
Shouldn’t physical comfort be necessary when it comes to sports? Obviously, however not as indicated by my school. Today in sports period I was rebuked and sent back up to the class, for wearing the ‘wrong shoes’. My school’s mentality strictly forbids any other sports shoe with any colour other than white, with no coloured strips or laces. I find this rule extremely unnecessary because not only is it absurd but also hard to find shoes like that, which are my size and comfortable. So basically if you do not wear white sports shoes you are not allowed to exercise or play sports. In addition, my school always presents these programmes about how physical activity is essential, and yet we only get to exercise and play once a week for 35 minutes, the only other exercise we do in these seven hours of learning is climbing up the stairs in the morning and down in the afternoon. Also when you try to speak up about this you are ignored by the teachers. M UAE The bank rep had some questions: to spell my company name? My company had nothing to do with the transfer. Then he asked me the birthday of the beneficiary? I am paying an invoice, how am I supposed to know their birthday? So he suggested I visit the branch again, which I did. I was assured it would be sorted and told I would receive a call. It didn’t come, so I called again the helpline, going through the ‘press 1, press 2, pin code, and…. .more personal questions’. After finally getting through I was told the rep could not assist me as he could find no issue with the case, he could not contact the branch as he didn’t have the phone number. Yes, a bank rep could not contact a branch of their own branch. Back to the branch, in between I already got charged EU100 due to late payment. After many more times going back and forward and promises of calls that never came, on October 7 I was notified by the beneficiary that the payment had gone through. On top of that, do you believe I was charged a ridiculous AED200 for these “services”. Name withheld Dubai The municipality is on the right track so lets hope that they stay on it. Rob UAE
