Here is how a lot of people talk about their companies:

“We have offices in most of the Gulf countries… Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Dubai & Oman.”

Hello! All of them aren’t counties!

I dunno about the rest of you, but most of the people I meet refer to Dubai as a country. Everyone forgets that the country is UAE and that Dubai is just a city in there, not even the capitol city! I guess its such a famous place now that if you said UAE, most people wouldn’t know what you were talking about. :)
