Ever asked your colleague what the weather will be like tomorrow, nah...us neither. Ever freaked out to your housemate because there's no food in the fridge...nope. You forget to grab some water from the shop on the way home from work and now you're moaning to the wife because you'll have to pop back out in your pjs? Nope...these things DO NOT happen in Dubai. Here's a whole host of other things that you'll never say either...

1. "Don't forget your umbrella"

Admittedly we do have a few drizzly days, but they're so few and far between. And no one actually OWNS an umbrella....do they?

2. "I'm going to stay in all weekend...can't really think of anything to do"

Even when there's nothing to do (which is never)...Dubai has awesome beaches to sort your tan out for free!

3. "But does Nandos deliver?"

4. "I wonder what the world's tallest building is?"

Unless you're asking in a totally 'eye-rolling' sarcastic way of course

5. "Wow...DEWA is so easy to sort out without my visa application in place"

10. "Lets take the stairs"

...we're only on the 43rd floor. Er...NO!

11. "Don't worry about it, admin will get that sorted out real quick"

Get used to the 'long, slow way round' with everything
