How to waste ur day – brought to u by Wataniya

My internet is from Wataniya.  I woke up two days ago and the internet wasn’t working.  I go look at the router and it wasn’t lit up so my brother and I went to Wataniya to see what was wrong with it.  After waiting for a bit the guy tells us that the issue is with the power supply and not with the router, but they don’t sell the individual power supply and we would have to go get it from somewhere else.  He told us to go to a store called Cameo in Ibn Khuldoon street in Hawalli, and as most of u know Hawalli is HELL at night, and the heat of Kuwait is Hell during the day, so no matter what you do, your stuck in hell.  Anyways we go to Ibn Khuldoon get lost a bit and find the store and they tell us they don’t have it.  We go to a couple of more stores and they don’t have a power supply.  So we give up and head home. 

 The next day (which is today) I met up with a friend for lunch and after we were done I decided to go and search for that DARN power supply.  I went to the Lawazim il 3a’ela store in the jam3iya and they didnt have it, so I went to the computer shop, they didnt have it either.  I walked around Re7ab, couldn’t find it there.  They told me to go across the street to the electrical shops and I went to like 3 different stores and they didn’t have it.  THEN they told me to go to the satellite stores and they would have it.  So I went, and walked around the satellite stores until one man told me to go to a store called RTC or something and they had it there, I really don’t know how I found the store,  but I did, and I finally got the power supply I needed after spending a very long time driving around hawalli, going to different stores and ofcourse wasting my good time.

I don’t understand why they don’t keep extra power supplies in their storage area, or why they don’t have one specific store they deal with so they can send their customers there.  Ya3ni I had to waste my time driving around kuwait trying to find a power supply for the stupid router, and on top of all that its HOT.

    I don’t know what the problem is, Chirp, but our internet service also seems to be really wonky these days, slow slow slow, but not all the time. Maybe it’s internet user overload!

    Aren’t you heading off to school soon?

    Dear folks,

    I have been using Wnet for a year and more now. The most pathetic service I cud call. Currently residing in Riggai area, and Wnet is one of the worst services I ever found. It is quite slower than a dialup and often dead without signal. Tried several times fixing it up at Sharq office, but all efforts in vain when I am back home. So another solid case of all promises and poor delivery. I finally decided to use Quality net DSL now. Really happy with the speed and reliability.

    So new users beware with all the RED captions of top speed and customer service from Wnet. Its just pathetic.
