Dubai Central Post Office, 7:55 p.m.

The Abu Dhabi Central Post office closes at 10:00 p.m. The Dubai Airport Post Office doesn't close. But the Dubai Central Post Office closes at 8:00 p.m.

This means, no clerk may be working after 8:00 p.m., so customers are turned away beginning sometime before 8:00 p.m.

I saw a large crowd gathered at the Central Post Office between 7:55 and 8:00 p.m., all angry. One, with wasta, got himself admitted, but all the others were turned away.

The security guard explained the situation to those who understand Urdu, but, for the rest of us, it was not clear why we couldn't get into the post office at 7:55.

So I had to come up with my own explanation.
