Those of you who have traveled to the United States have dealt with the Kuwait embassy in Washington. Is just me or do they have the rudest people working there? When you call of course you get a recording but if you want to speak to an operator you press 1. Simple. Then some non-Kuwaiti man answers the phone sounding like he's 300 pounds and just ran a marathon. He answers "N3aam" instead of hello like you are calling his house or something. He told me husband "shtebby" in his Egyptian accent. What!? They speak to Kuwaiti citizens like that? Does anyone in Kuwait regulate their embassies?
Last year I dealt with a young Egyptian female who answered a little bit more politely but still acted like she was doing you a favor by talking to you. I had to have some documents authorized and that meant dealing with the Magda character. She talks down to you as if she is better than thou. I thought the American embassy in Kuwait was bad. At least the Kavork guy has a better attitude now than before. I wanted to smack him a couple years ago because he was so rude.
Honestly someone should regulate the Kuwaiti embassies around the world because they are so rude and nosey. When I applied for a visa back in 2004 there was some guy who was asking my mom personal questions because her hubby was my sponsor then. It's like these people think they do others a favor by answering them and feel that because they are part of the great embassy they can do as they like and ask what they want or they can deny you. Wow what a power trip that is.
When they hear my voice and know I'm American they get an attitude like why are you calling a Kuwaiti embassy and then when they hear my hubby is Kuwaiti they get even more rude, especially the women. For some reason they get mad when a citizen marries a foreigner. I would love to go to Washington and visit that place just to see their faces but I hate Washington. One visit there was enough.
They don't even have a website to visit so that you can possibly avoid contact with those people. Even Canada has a website. Wow U.S. is being outdone by Canada? I would much rather visit a website with all the necessary info than to contact anyone at the embassy unless I have to. Come on U.S.-Kuwait embassy it's 2011 everyone has a freaking website.
My point is someone from Kuwait should regulate them. Have someone call the embassies and act like they need something just find out how other people are treated.
For all those people who say I'm racist I have no problem with Egyptians but this really happened and they were rude and happen to be from Egypt. So don't send me stupid comments about me being a racist. Nuff' said.
