First thing:
Media is really bad
•TV: Boring, Expensive, Repetitive, ads again and again and again
•Internet: Expensive, Limited bandwith compared to Europe (let’s not compare it to Lebanon the officially worse country in the world)
•Radio: GAHHHH!
•Mobile: EXPENSIVE!!!!! and CRAP!!!!, things they charge you for in here come for free worldwide! imagine they charge you for receiving phone calls! minutes are deducted!!! on top of that while for example UK offer 2000 minutes per month packages , in here they offer 200 mins packages for the same prices, and receiving international calls or messages is a disaster (I almost never ever receive international text and people think I am ignoring them).

Second Thing:
Some companies follow the american way of paying but without the perks of the american way. They do not pay for overtime, on call or what ever that is. Also we have 10 business days of vacation per year and 5 sick days! Compared for example to scotland where you could have 25 days. So basically people tend not to take any off days ever and they try to group them together for a nice vacation, so people when fucking sick come to work anyway and all they do is cough and sneeze and they fucking infect everybody else like it happened to me :). I am home and sick and just spent my last sick of the year because of that stupid system.
Thank you very much…
