Dear reader, come with us and watch two Arab News reporters while they endure the procedures of renewing a driver’s license by our really overpaid pencil-pushers. “IBM, the apocryphal acronym for the three stages of dealing with government departments, is well founded. It is a testimony to the mangled hopes of a well-disposed citizen wishing to comply with the law and his eventual frustration at the combination of confusion and obfuscation that surrounds the simplest of official paperwork. IBM — Inshallah (God willing); bukra (tomorrow); maalesh (Sorry or take it easy)!”

  1. A procedure is supposed to have a set time interval. I work for a company that is planning to layoff people and bring in technology that will save money AND time for its customers.
    When was the last time you updated the Saudi blogosphere..or is it getting too overwhelming for ya?

  2. I thought only a few people knew about IBM.. :)

    I haven’t renewed my license yet but its due in a year’s time I think… Hope it improves by then..
