That cross gotta feel like a ton!! May the lord bless you, LOL!
OK, I just picked up my NPR Radio by Livio after waiting for a while to get it and I have used DHL’s Borderlinx service here in Kuwait, the counterpart of Aramex’s Shop & Ship. I’ve used Borderlinx for like 3-4 times and I have to say that this is it! I’ve been scammed major time by these fellas! When we started using their services (I joined online, so I didn’t sign a damn paper!) as a getaway from Aramex crappy services for customs and long delays, Borderlinx was the savior for all of online shoppers here in Kuwait! Like any other shipping carrier, they charge you for customs finalizing works and papers aside from the actual weight of the received item. Lately, and without informing any of its customers, Borderlinx shifted their calculation from actual weight to volumetric weight, using damn stupid math formulas to calculate which is higher and be charged for it! My package was only 3.1 KGs and according to the large size of the box (10″x16″x14″, as a protection for the radio) I was charged 38 KDs using the volumetric weight! WTF?!!! Even for the customs, my radio only costs 169 dollars and they charged only 4 KDs, so all the paper works and the stamps and all that shits piles up to 15.5 KDs! The paperwork is much more than the tax itself? WTF? The whole total is 54KDs for a radio that costs 48 KDs! Can you imagine the horrendous crime? This is plain thievery! I had a long argument with the Indian worker down there in Khaleejiya office and promised him that I’d never use DHL nor Borderlinx again! He argued that he checks for the actual weight first, then takes the volumetric weight, and whichever is higher in price would be charged! I asked him to provide me with official paperwork from DHL to prove the procedure, and he said that nothing was available to support the claim, you either take it or leave it. It’s sad to say that I’ve been a customer of DHL since 2001, having all my Amazon shipments using their services but this is truly a scam of the century! Another tale of this is 2:48AM’s.
Ok, I know it was Thursday night at the Marina Mall TGI Friday’s, I know it was Egypt Vs Ghana for the finals, and I know most of the Egyptian workers were busy watching the game rather than tending to the customers, But this was one of the trashiest bathrooms I’ve seen so far in such franchise establishments!!! Just look at the open mini-sewer in the ladies’ and all the water and tissues in the men’s!!
The biggest idiot ever to serve in the UN. This guy got into the UN representing the United States with a disturbed mentality about the UN and its role in the international society. On many occasions, he was quoted for showing disrespect towards the international society and its modern influential leaders and states, which in turn justifies the global hate wave towards the United States. Who hired this guy? George W Bush, another idiot! I mean the likes of him, Rumsfeld, Rice, Negroponte & Armitage all fit in the Bush freak circus! The lever has already been pulled for this one! I just really really really hated this guy’s guts!
OK, I know one of my good buddies might be pissed about this post, but somebody has to say enough to Yngwie Malmsteen. This guy is as clueless about his records sales and musical direction as Alicia Silverstone in her rich dumb blonde movie ”Clueless”. Mr. Malmsteen couldn’t break the US record market in any way possible, through multiple band line-ups over dozens for albums for one major point: difference in musical taste. Simply: the US music fans just don’t like his type of music and he just doesn’t get it. That’s of course aside from his typical bigger-than-his-dick ego and mistreatment of band-mates, his style of guitar playing is the same damn rhythm and techniques we’ve been hearing for the last ten albums. Why he sells in Japan? because if I brought a Jamaican weed seller and handed him a Les Paul with some Japanese editions of his 1st albums, they would go crazy about anything foreign and strange! That’s how it is down there! But still, over time, the Japanese consumer grew older and knows what’s best for him and Malmsteen trashy albums are not on anybody’s shopping list!
