On June 11, 2011 at around ten in the morning, one of Balladiah personnel (a Saudi national) arrived at my place - a showroom of home decors and other home accessories where I am working with. I am managing this showroom for more than three years now since it started on March 23, 2008. Balladiah is one of Saudi Government Departments responsible for issuance of (Roxas/Rochas) licenses like business license, building construction license and other licenses.
The Balladiah guy asked me about the license of the showroom where I am working, I had nothing to show off to him instead, I had explained that the person who is keeping it is at the other side and he asked me to call the person. So I called my friend who was also a salesman of the other showroom and asked him to speak to the Balladiah representative in Arabic as the guy could not speak English. Following my request, my friend started the conversation with the Balladiah guy.
After a while my friend explained to me what the Balladiah representative has suggested that said, "The showroom where I am working should have its own license because this is a different showroom." In addition to it, the Balladiah guy started writing in Arabic language using their Balladiah letterhead. After he has done it, he requested me to affix my signature on the document.
Of course, I had no intention to object what he wanted me to do. Although when I asked him to translate to me in English language what he has written on the document, he quickly replied in his Arabic language in which my friend translated to me in English said, "You're not American to request such English translations for this Arabic Writings."
