I love to inform people about things that are going on in Kuwait and write about my experiences. But when someone steals my work and credits themselves with my work it really pisses me off. My mom called me today asking me I had seen the Thursday edition of Arab Times. She informed me that in the section called "Overheard in the Souk" they had copied and pasted my article about my trip to the zoo. I couldn't believe it.
I immediately went to my mom's house to get the paper. There in print to my disbelief was my freaking article I wrote. OMG! I can't believe the audacity of that person who printed my article. If they are reading they better issue me a written apology in the news paper or there will be hell to pay! I will be calling and more importantly visiting Arab Times soon to make a major issue and I will inform the owner and management of plagiarism within their company.
First of all most of the employees of Arab Times don't use American text. All of their reporting is in a British manner, such as when a car turns turtle so if the person reading my stolen article will know immediately that this is not the same text as most of the paper. If they need a reporter or want to hire me then ask but DON'T EVER COPY MY WORK AND THINK YOU WILL GET AWAY WITH IT! This issue has just begun and I'm prepared to make a BIG BIG deal of it.
