Be Happy...

She's doing indoor sales at the Deira City Centre. Her best selling item is the "outfit" she has to put on daily...for at least 8 hours. It is actually a blow-up camel and it gives the impression you are riding on it once u put it on.
" I am very happy putting on this outfit...EVERYDAY!" she exclaimed proudly. She has an infectious smile.
" Really? Sorry but I feel bad for you."
" Why? I am able to make both the adults and kids happy. They take pictures with me. It's ok if they don't buy." Again the smile.

Mohammed has a barbershop just 5 mins from Musallah Tower (my residence). The other day, I accompanied a friend who wanted a haircut....
"I have lived in Dubai and works in this shop for the past 25 yrs."
"Beginning, we were the only shop but now many shops here and there."
"Wow! you must have seen history in the making. On the average u trimmed 15 heads per day...so for 25 yrs...that works out to 130,000 heads!!!!!!!!!!!" He smiled and took out a little blue booklet where he keeps a simple accounting.
"Are u happy here?"
"YES! and I will be retiring in 2 yrs time...going home to India."
ANY GUESS WHAT'S THE GADGET ON HIS HAND?
