A Little Consistency...Is That Too Much To Ask?

I don’t understand how the Water Company here works. For some reason, they are unable to maintain a consistent schedule when it comes to water distribution.

I really don’t see how this is so hard. If they say that my area gets its water on Tuesday, then darn it, pump the water on Tuesday. Not Monday. Not Wednesday. But the worst is when they are supposed to pump it on Tuesday and when Wednesday afternoon finally roles around, there is still no water. What is the hold up?

It just doesn't make sense to me. Then again, neither does Cheez Whiz, but I've never been forced to wait more than two-and-a-half seconds for Cheez Whiz.

Jordan I like. It's the occasional attitude towards customer service that bothers me.

Yeah, that makes perfect sense, if you're talking about people who genuinely believe in doing their job right and earning their living that way, but the average Jordanian worker including those who will make sure your neighborhood gets its water on Tuesday are unsatisfied with what they get from their job.

Low worker morale, that's one thing you can count on finding in almost every Jordanian company.

Hahahaha!

Welcome to Jordan my friend!

We schedule our life according to WATER NIGHT!


Yeah, enjoy the summer!

TIP: You know these funny green trucks? They carry water! Just ask for one of their phone numbers and put it on your speed dial list!
