10 tweets that sum up perfectly how the UAE feels about the new weekend
How are you handling the new workweek schedule?
When the UAE announced that it was going to shift to a new work week, aka Monday to Friday, it was met with mixed reactions. We had a few who were excited and looking forward to the change, and the rest, well… not so much.
Here are some of the tweets that had us giggling and nodding our heads in approval in the office this Friday.

It’s everyone’s first Friday at work here, as the UAE switched to a Sat/Sun weekend. A very strange feeling. Good luck everybody!
