New Weekend Timings for Oman to take Effect May 1st
The government of Oman has decided to change our weekends from the thurs-fri they currently are, to fri-saturday starting May 1st. Which is still weird, since the majority of the world is sat-sun [AT LEAST WE'LL BE THE SAME AS uae]. I don't know, it doesn't really satisfy anybody. But I guess compromise is like that, no one gets what they want ha ha.
That also means we will have a 6 day work week one of these days, unless the government affords a holiday. I am sure many employees will take the 6th day an an unofficial holiday anyways. I know I will.
