Ten years ago Qatar was the TDY from hell for people down range.
“Ten years ago Qatar was the TDY from hell for people down range.”
I was offered a job in Doha for a year at a very high rate of pay. There wasn’t even an interview. I had a skill set the company couldn’t find anywhere and this guy from London called me about the position.
While we were discussing travel and living arrangements, I asked him what my last name was. He told me. I paused and said again, “what’s my last name?” Again he told me, then went back to traveling arrangements. I finally asked him, “take a moment and think about my last name.” He paused and said, “Oh, this won’t work. Sorry to bother you.”
There was no way EQ the Jew was getting on a plane to Qatar.
