“Sorry el 3agla kanet nayma”, “Sorry s7et l2eet el maya ma2to3a”, “Sorry my cat is really sick and I had to convince my neighbors to keep her for the day”, “sorry I got stuck on Mehwar/da2ery.”

5.The one who’s always negative & argumentative

They always have an opinion about everything being discussed, they are never convinced with anything being said and they are the reason meetings last for hours “la bas with all due respect this is too much m3lesh cut us some slack b2a”

They know their job and they probably can do it just OK, however they never come up with initiatives, they never go the extra mile, they come at 9 and leave exactly at 5.

7.The one who’s always dependent

“Momkn tbos 3al email da 2bl ma ab3to?” They rely on their bosses in everything, your boss didn’t hire you to do your job!

8.The non-ambitious

“el 7amdolellah Ana mbsot kda” they are OK with staying in their same roles forever, they don’t want to take any risks, they don’t have any short or long career term goals.
