7 Days a Week
During Ramadan, Eid and Sheikh Zayed's Mourning, it disappeared completely. But a week ago, it returned, announcing that henceforth it would be a daily publication.
So now, every morning, we have to pick it up off the threshold and dispose of it, or leave it lying around cluttering up the hallways of our apartment block. We picked it up and threw it away, unread, during the first week. Now we are checking what happens if we just leave it there - will the boy who delivers the next one take away the old one (for recycling haha)? Or will the piles of unwanted newsprint simply accumulate until they become a health and fire hazard?
Only time will tell, but it looks like everyone on our corridor has arrived at the same conclusion - none of them have picked up the latest issue of this rag. What a waste of newsprint!
