Kuwait: Deserve Better

Mark describe what they have in Kuwait compared to what he saw in Bahrain during his last visit and said: “Boring designs, no luxury hotels, small toy stores, and generic books and magazines. It feels like some people in Kuwait think we (the consumers) are not worth the effort. You know why? Because we don’t complain.

    A lebaneese man & wife surviving in kuwait on free cookies, free meals and complaints. This should be treated silly. He went bahrain for so called business trip and bashing on his host country.his country lebanon is known for its prostitutes and now he is complaining about prostitutes in bahrain. I pity this idiot. No manners, No decency.Several weeks back a prominent group in Kuwait threatened him for his unruly, uncouth and indecent comments and he had no option other than to withdraw and delete the posts. if virgin megastore had given him a free DVD, the case would have been different. Now we have noticed he started several complaints on our company also and we are going to take this serious. if he feels his canadian passport is an immunity to his moans, we are determined to prove it wrong. you give him something free, positive reviews will come out for sure. if you reject his free try requests, you will get bad marks.

    Ahmed, dude you have some serious issues. I agree with everything that Mark says on him blog. To begin with, you just seem real paranoid like every other paranoid individual or companies in Kuwait who doesn’t want to admit their own mistakes. And I personaly think that the ‘prominent group’ that you are bragging about has done nothing but proved their weakness by threatning Mark rather then fixing their flaws.

    Oh! about your company. There must be some real shit going on out there reason why several complaints were posted or probably your company makes very bad cookies.

  • Your solution for his complaints is to threaten him? How about you find the solution to his complaints to better the service of your company.
    Apparently fixing the problems within the company is outside of your grasp; no wonder you lower yourself to empty threats on blogs.

    You want to silence the people complaining about the problem .. fix it.
