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.

Malat 3alaikom zain!

I found one in baroue.

Hiff ma sarat breast pump!

useing a breast pump doesnt mean u dont breast feed naturally
sometimes the baby dosnt breast feed enough so theres an excess u need to get rid of

don't let it slip should definitely complain!

October 11, 2008 at 1:35 AM  

Thats why I usually get stuff from the net or check in other places that are close just in case because we have a lot of idiots around and sometimes I would like to beat the **** out of them. BTW just reading this now I wish to go there and do it >:)

October 11, 2008 at 1:53 AM  

how much did the electric one cost?

October 11, 2008 at 2:41 AM  

ma3alesh babe .. tolerate :**

October 11, 2008 at 2:42 AM  

You know what you should do?
No seriously?

Write a complaint to boots UK!!!

Cause this is really serious, a lady just gave birth, needs an electric bump, there is not time to waist, all it takes is a mere phone call, and you had to go through the hell of the avenues parking and crowd only to get that stupid response?

I once had a situation with Starbucks, the waiter did something equally stupid and lame, lied to my face, instantly i wrote an email to Starbucks USA, less than an hour later a manager from al-shay3 calls me apologizing, and then the manager of that particular starbucks called me apologizing and offering me a free drink...

So yes,,, you have every right to complain. I once have complained to KDD and actually did get very attentive replies!!! Its about time consumers are taken more seriously in Kuwait... we are not feeling less buckets of money walking in malls!!!!

Shay yibi6 el chabd!

I used to hate pumping the milk but of course there are some situations where I had to..

October 11, 2008 at 7:58 AM

October 11, 2008 at 8:23 AM  

u should've spoken to the manager..

boots in Kuwait is like crap on a stick ..... they never let me buy meds without asking me if I know how it works .... I usually end up listing all the side effects of the drug and subsequently explaining the manufacturing process ...... usually keeps them quiet ....

October 11, 2008 at 3:16 PM  

youma it looks scary!! i wont be found 10 meters min those stuff!! takhro3a

October 11, 2008 at 3:25 PM  

I agree with the others, you should complain.

I think an electric breast pump sounds painful.

October 11, 2008 at 7:32 PM  

I would have kicked his ass, made sure he delivered one to me by the next day, and then stormed out!

October 11, 2008 at 9:45 PM  

lol i like how you put in all that effort for an electric breast pump.
Sounds like some sales people need a lesson in courtesy.

October 12, 2008 at 1:08 AM

October 24, 2008 at 12:27 PM  

and I always complain about the stores we have here in Oman! Apparently its all the same in the gulf!

good GOD! I know how stressful that would be... Allah y3eenich ... aham shai you found it at last :D

October 28, 2008 at 9:01 AM  

yup u shud totally write a complaint to the UK .. they are a franchise, although, they could be shut down, and then what would we be left with?

I wish someone would franchise Superdrug! It's soo much better than boots! cheaper and better quality!

Glad you got sorted though :)
