Everyday expats complain about Kuwaiti citizens and their actions. Have any expats thought about their advantages over Kuwaiti citizens? You can finance cars easier, you can end up with better jobs and salaries than locals even with locals getting that extra 250 KD and the biggest perk expats get in this country is being able to rent apartments/flats. Several Kuwaiti citizens I know can't find apartments due to the Kuwaiti owners discriminating against their own people. When a Kuwaiti (who isn't loaded and has no wasta) wants to rent an apartment they are first tested by the rental office expat with a series of questions about their family name, salary and information about their wife having a job or not.
If a citizen likes the apartment they must pass the Kuwaiti owner course which means being looked up and down from head to toe, having the owner see what kind of car you drive, what is your family name and IF he likes the local they will have to pay a deposit equal to the rent amount (which you will never see again, they say "deposit" but it's really free money because they will find some way to take it all) plus 2 months rent and finally half month rent amount to the office. My sister who is American with Kuwait nationality can't find an apartment now that she is no longer married, why, because she is still considered Kuwaiti even if she was originally American.
There are are two kinds of Kuwaiti citizens, rich and not rich. Those that are rich have wasta, money and power. They control the country but don't know what it's like for the non-rich people and expats. Does anyone think the rich people have ever went to a government hospital for anything? Doubt it, but they are on the committee and decide what actions to take for the health system. Will any of these people put a stop to the uncontrollable rent increase? Doubt it considering they are the ones making money off of these deals.
When will Kuwait unite again? Will there ever be a time when Kuwaiti citizens protect each other instead of trying to be better than the next? Considering they are the minority population one would think they would unite and grow instead of dividing the country further. The expat communities have better unity than Westerners and local citizens.
For example: When an Indian expat comes to Kuwait he is instantly taken into his community in Kuwait, they help him with finding a job if needed, housing and transportation. American citizens don't really help their fellow citizens with jobs as they think the new guy might take his job, they can be mean especially if you're not in their click or a Mason, they also tend to separate by color. Everything is getting more expensive but salary is not matching the "growth". Greed rules this country which is quite sad when other GCC countries are growing and leaving this place in the dust.
Well, I had my ranting and raving which made for a long story but these things can make you "crazy in Kuwait".
