Ladies and Gents, I currently work in the Middle East for the last month I have had nothing but excuses from my arabic collegues who due to Ramadam seem to go into total shutdown. If I attempt to sack a member of staff for doing nothing, he claims that Ramadam, The Month of Fasting. The Meaning of Ramadan. Ramadan is a special month. It is a time for inner reflection, devotion to God, and self-control. ... Its the biggest load of bolloks iv'e ever head, I live, eat and sleep with the filthy bastards........I hope and pray that Lynx will start to sponsor this so called month.
