Electric Breast Pump
I was on a mission yesterday, looking for an electric breast pump for fig. My friend who recently gave birth too, told me she got a really good one from boots.
I went to every single boots in Kuwait!
And they were all out of electric ones!
Mashallah el kel breast feeding hal ayam.
I was in boots ele next to food court salmiya and i told the lady to ask if they had it in the avenues,
She went to a little store room in the back and told me maam i think they are out of stock everywhere.
Did u call them? i asked
No maam the lines are busy.
Ya salaam! so she just decided to tell me they were sold out to just get me out of her hair!
I asked her for the number and called them myself. A nice lady answered and i asked her if they had an electric breast pump available and she said yes
Electric i asked
yes she answered
Karaba2i i said in arabic just to make extra sure
yes she answered again.
Ok please hold it for me im coming to get in half an hour
So I go allll the way to the avenues. I go into boots and ask for the pump, and she hands me a manual one.
I was tired and fuming !
I told her i called u a mere 20 minits ago asking for one and they said it was available.
So she goes aaah it must be in the other boots on the other side.
So i walk to the other side and go into boots smiling !
Hi i called a while ago asking if u had an electric breast pump and u said it was available.
No maam were all out
It must be in the other store on the other side
I just came from the other store!
(ystahbelooon wela shelsalfa!)
And then this guy standing behind the counter says yeah my coworker did ask me if it was available and i said yimkin. maybe.
(You made me come all the way here on a yimkin!
U couldnt get off ur freaking ass to check!)
So i grit my teeth and say u made me come all the way here on a maybe?
And the guy so casually says
Oh usually when people call us theyre already in the avenues!
(wallah?! e7lif bas! so ppl first come to the mall and call u to ask if a product is available after getting here instead of walking over to the store. shayfni habla wagfa jedamik!)
I stormed out of the store.
