International Optics

Posted by Mark

One of the best customer service in Kuwait can be found at International Optics. The employees there are always extremely friendly and professional.

The other day we passed by them because Geo had chewed up Nats glasses after she accidentally left them on the table and they were completely destroyed. The frames plastic was bent, the metal thing on the side was scratched like crazy and he had chewed one of the glasses. She was about to throw them away when I told her they might be saved. So we went to the International Optics branch in Central Plaza and showed it to this one guy. He asked what had happened to it and I told him my dog chewed it. He of course found that funny and shared it with his fellow employees. He told me to come back the next day at the same time and we left.

Next day we went back and I realized I should have taken a before and after shot because what they did was incredible. They actually bent the frame (plastic and all) back to the right shape, they polished the front to remove all the scratches and the side metal was repainted. It was hard to believe this was the same glasses. If they had come and told me we threw your glasses away because they were unfixable I would have said ok but instead they fixed the glasses and they only charged us KD10 to replace the one scratched glass.

This is not the first time they were this helpful, I have had problems with my other shades and they always took care it. Anyway I figured I would talk about a company would good service since I mentioned Showtime’s bad service in the previous post.

RED

Posted by Mark

Geo it seems has a thing for red colored ethernet cables. Yesterday I realized one of the access points at home wasn’t working and when I checked the cable I found it had been bitten through. The ethernet cable I had used for it was red. So I went to the other side of the room to get another red cable that I used to use with my old clamshell ibook and to my surprise that was also bitten through. All the other cables surrounding the red ones (blue, grey and yellow) were not damaged only the 2 red cables in 2 different parts of the room were bitten through. Its very strange but now I know not to use red cables anymore.

U Shop We Ship
My MacBook is in my U Shop We Ship mailbox. My MacBook arrived there today after they had already sent out this weeks shipment. If it was Aramex I would have had to wait until their next scheduled shipment but since this is U Shop We Ship I chose the option “Ship Now” and my package is now going to be shipped today. Can’t wait till I get it.

Vote for me

Posted by Mark

Ok, so I am like 1 position away from an iPod nano. The Toot design competition is going to end on the 15th and I am currently in like 3rd place. I need to be in 2nd place to get that nano so take a second and go vote for me. In return, Nat will pose naked with the Nano. Sounds like a good deal? Nat doesn’t seem to think so… Ok seriously now if I win the $50 voucher I will probably put it towards the purchase of these Campers shoes I have had my eyes on. If I get the nano Nat will probably take it since her iPod shuffle is busted. Hmmm maybe its actually better I win the voucher.. (Nat made me delete this).

Yellow Stained MacBook

Posted by Mark

Fucked Book

Some people are now reporting that their MacBooks have started changing color which is really messed up. I mean before I was worried about the overheating problem but now I am worried about this discoloration. Now I am trying to figure out if I should cancel my order or not. So far there have only been 1 set of pictures which 1 person took but its blurry which is always fishy. Will wait a day and see how this progresses and then decide if I should cancel my order and wait a bit. [Link]

Where is my MacBook?

Posted by Mark

This is extremely frustrating. Orignally I was told by Amazon they would ship my MacBook on the 15th of June. I was then told my MacBook would instead ship earlier on the 9th of June and as compensation (don’t ask its amazon) they upgraded my shipping to next day. Now I am being told my MacBook is going to ship on June 20th and as compensation I was given a $30 gift voucher. Amazon is being very nice with me but fuck I want my MacBook!

The Beach

Posted by Mark

Dog Beach

Today morning we woke up early to take Geo to the dog beach. There were 5 other dogs there today and Geo was the youngest amongst them and also the smallest size wise. All the other dogs were bigger then Geo and they spent most of the time bullying him around. There was this really cool Great Dane that was just 1 year old but like twice the size of Geo. At one point he was running towards me and it’s just the freakiest thing. I wasn’t worried he was going to attack me or anything; I was just worried he was going to run in to me, it would be like getting hit by a truck. He was really cute and I think he gave Geo the hardest time. Geo swam for the first time today but only for a few seconds. Last week he spent most of the time jumping around in the water but today we went deeper and he managed to paddle a bit before he looked like he was starting to drown which at that point I decided to carry him back to the shallow end. I didn’t get a tan since we only spent an hour at the beach but I think by the end of summer I should get some color.

The Suspense

Posted by Mark

Amazon Shipping Status

Urgh, according to Amazon my MacBook should ship out today. I preordered the MacBook on May 23rd and have been waiting ever since then. I even have overnight shipping which means once it ships out today it should arrive to my mailbox tomorrow but my order is still open and there is no sign of it shipping. The suspense is killing me!!
