Fingerprinted
July 31, 2006
Today I had to go to the Criminal Investigations (translated from Arabic) building in Kuwait City to get fingerprinted for my residency. I went at around 11:00 a.m. and it was boiling hot. I couldnt hold the steering wheel. Whats worse is that I was wearing a tie and suit. And when I got there, they kept sending me from floor to floor, and it was all pointless cos I kept asking the wrong people, who turned out to be the dumbest and such a waste of oxygen, cos everything I had to do was on the same floor, no need to jump around from place to place. When I finally finished all the paperwork, I finally got to fingerprint corner and..... I felt like a criminal. He was wearing those white gloves and grabbed my fingers, one by one, after soaking them with ink ofcourse, and pressed them on a yellow card board paper. Now that my fingers are all ink and no way I could drive, he just screams out "Next" and Im pushed out. So I spend another 15 mins holding my keys and phone in my mouth looking for a bathroom. I finally found one, got cleaned up and went around looking for tissue. Anyway, I'm back at my office now in the A/C..... aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh :)

    Ohh tell me about it!!
    you were lucky..lets see why:

    A)you went a bit late,a smart step..cuz ppl like me went there at 6:00 a.m,thinking they would finish quickly cuz they arrived early!!WRONG

    B)you were sent from floor to another,and not sent back home,cuz you had to go to another place and get a paper which has nothing to do with ur residency.

    C)The guy who was doing the finger print..i cant forget his face..RAKHI EDECH!!

    I`m sorry but back there..they were treating ppl like animals,specially u know those poor indians and Saedies,screaming,cursing!!the man infront of the door(Ja7esh),once he saw my passport he was like"Enti 3ala rasi"!!

    and loll i dont wanna talk about the bathroom..but i want to make sure,did you really cleaned up??

    Anyhow..mabrook lol
