Al Shaya Problem!
I was at Kuwait Airport this morning, and as our all time ritual we would eat breakfast there for morning flights... and of course, we picked Pizza Express.
I was buying everyone breakfast and decided to pay with NBK Credit Card, for that you get an instant 20% off your total.
1st issue: the total came up to KWD16.950, and the waiter added KWD1.690 as "Service" charge to it, so I received a handwritten total of KWD18.640
2nd issue: I paid with my card exactly KWD18.640! Where is the instant 20%???
3rd issue: when I asked him about it, he said it will come up later. Later where?? I mean come on! This isnt the first time I pay with my card at Al Shaya restaurants... Instant means instant.
4th issue: when he tried to convince me to redo the transaction without refunding the money! I am sure he wasnt trying to rip me off, he was just purely naive that I was gonna be charged twice, once with the full amount and another with the "instant" discount!
5th issue: why did he write Totele?? ITS TOTAL!!!!! ughhhhh
