Being an expat in Dubai one of the things that really gets to me is the waste mentality. I can’t get over how if something breaks here we simply throw it away! Its so difficult to find a reliable fix it man that doesn’t cost the world and can actually guarantee that the repair job will last longer than a day that we bin it! If I was back home things such as tv’s, washing machines, tumble dryers would last about 10 years before needing replacing, here we just throw it away! Perhaps because the money doesn’t seem real so we don’t value it as much or perhaps because we have become so lazy too?! Whatever the reason, its crazy!
