Not once did I call personnel and got my problem solved over the phone! THAT'S IF THEY PICK UP TO START WITH!

So I called up the receptionist, told her that I have been calling all day and no one picks up! Perhaps the lines were down or something?

And she said:

" I guess they're busy, there's this guy.. Call him and see.. He might pick up!"

What she said was " shoofy chan bayred 3alaich"

Which means.. Try ur luck!

What the ...!? I'm so going down there to see what those people do all day!

- to patience!!

In Kuwait they eat ;) and have dewaniyas, while other employees bring their relatives, friends, tailor, the sales person from a store they shop at a lot, il9ibi min iljam3iya...u name it....and act as their was6a as they get numerous physical check ups for their ailments done ;P

Anything but the job theyre paid to do!
