The customs strike is on

Post by Mark

I was just informed that according to the Kuwait Customs Labor Union, all the customs staff will go on strike starting from this Tuesday the 13th. Only emergency medicine and passengers on-board baggage will be processed during the strike. All other items will be placed on hold with no indication to how long the strike will last.

This seriously sucks.

    I have a feeling they time it to coincide with new apple product launches.

    Yay so none of us will be getting our iPads…I just wish I could walk over there and smack some sense into those people they barley do anything as it is. All the work is done by the people who work at Aramex, DHL, FedEx, UPS, and so on.

      Oh no a small improvement on the iPad 2 won’t arrive the exact same day :I

      • Mark says:

        small? an ipad with the same screen resolution as a 27inch iMAC is now a small minor improvement? jeez what were you expecting? a time machine? teleportation abilities?

      • BAJS says:

        Better processor, more ram, higher res screen, 4g, same battery life, same price. That’s as big of a jump as the iPhone 4 was from the 3GS. If that’s considered a minor improvement then I don’t know what will please your highness.

    Thank God my laptop arrived this morning. It should be cleared in a couple of hours since I shipped it with FedEx.

    how nice!
    i wish my boss operates the same way: i stop working for a some time and then i get a big fat raise!


  9. Thinka says:

    Aaa, thank god for that. Hate to think leaving my baggage in a hold….. You never see it back. And i agree it is the companies like DHL and ARAMEX that do all the work….. Bloody nuisance!! I think everybody err had received a 20% salary uplift recently….???

  10. Joe says:

    How long was the last strike?

  11. Bob says:

    Looks like the strike has or will start very soon.
    We have been told customs is not going to release our mail for the next two days minimum.

  12. Man in a suit says:

    You guys are complaining about your new iPad? I been trying to release my car for the past 10 days and when I was supposed to finally take it out today they strike.

    The irony is a killer in this one.

  13. dadavena says:

    Does the strike affect outgoing parcel and mail? Nobody at DHL I talked to can answer. wth?
