Rat Caught on Video at a Local Supermarket

Post by Mark

According to my lawyer I can’t mention the name of the supermarket. I also had to mute out the audio in the video since the guy recording mentions the name so I replaced the audio with music that sounds like something out of a Nintendo game.

On a side note is it bad that I am more upset with the fact that I can no longer find Haribo gummy bears, Dove Men+Care Antiperspirant or Sensodyne Extra Fresh Toothpaste at the branch I frequent more than I care about this rat?

Also just got the following response from the supermarket:

Hello Mark,
****** is aware of what is being circulated and is investigating it, as ****** takes pest control very seriously and deals with the best and most reliable pest control companies in Kuwait, making sure all hygiene standard are exceeded. Our Operations team, in coordination with our Pest company, has done a full and detailed check of the store and no issues were found till date. (Noting that Prior to the video being circulated in a day, the store had gone through the normal scheduled deep clean exercise with no issues found)

      well i can find my deo at the Salmiya Coop. So I now buy a box which I think contains 8 cans at a time, hate that coop so I buy in bulk so I can only visit them once a month.

      haribo and toothpaste are available at Lulu which is a 10 minute walk from my place. I just hate shopping there since they don’t have normal carry baskets (wtf lulu?) just those baskets you put on the floor and pull. As a tall person I hate them because the handle isn’t long enough and then I need to bend down every time i need to put something in or take something out. Plus place is always crowded so its not very therapeutic or enjoyable shopping there.

    That looks like my local branch of the unnamed supermarket

  3. aaa says:

    Unnamed Supermarket Company has also gone through a huge round of layoffs to save costs because Unnamed Supermarket has been struggling recently

    I guess they fired the guy whose job it was to check for rats

    Mark, can you please explain why you can’t legally mention the name of the supermarket?

    This mentality of “no one is allowed to post anything negative about me” is killing this country. No one should be above reproach, and without pointing out the flaws, businesses/individuals will feel no need to improve themselves.

    People need to start developing thicker skin around here…

      i didn’t think i would have an issue posting name and stuff since this is a fact not a rumor thats circulating or anything. but i’ve learned not to argue with my lawyer, probably being extra safe about it.

        What about in the comments? Are you responsible for anything in the comments? I mean the new stupid laws make you liable for retweets and whatsapp messages by others if you’re group admin.

    • Maz says:

      +1 here.

      I do not understand why these places cannot come under scrutiny.

      Is your lawyer specifically trying to protect you since you are a foreigner and may (probably will) have to endure unfair and unequal treatment, or is there an actual law prohibiting this?

      I need to hear about The Secret Company’s name — and said company needs to take responsibility of what happens, regardless of their claim that they adhere to “normal scheduled cleanup”

      Also, is it an issue if YOU post it or if it is posted on your blog (i.e. I post the name here in the comments section)

      Just curious.

    The other video is nastier 😷

  8. Gus says:

    I don’t know whats worse really! The video or the response!! Are they saying its fake? Are they saying that the “best” Pest company in Kuwait is to blame? What is it?

  9. TonyKing says:

    That’s Remy the Chef Rat from the movie “Ratatouille” making a MasterChef appearance in Kuwait and was Featured at the supermarket in question :)

  10. Jon says:

    sup mark .. regarding your products your needing… check out LULU in eagila … pretty sure it has the 3 things you are currently lacking my friend ;)

  11. Kayran says:

    lol cant believe i couldnt recognize the supermarket, and I used to go there pretty much daily. had to look up the original video to find out the name.

    maybe head over to inayamohd’s account on twitter, he might have something interesting

  12. geronimo says:

    is this TSC? (The Sexy Center?)

    • Non Kuwaiti says:

      It is probably best to name the place as ‘The *bird of a breed of white domestic chicken from Turkey* *middle*’

  13. orion says:

    “as ****** takes pest control very seriously”

    It sure as hell looks like they take pest control very seriously! How about they cut the crap for once and admit the mistakes businesses do in this country for once? Also, I feel like the law is one-sided and favors businesses greatly when it comes to defamation. I find the fact that you can’t name them is quite infuriating. (But we all know which (T) one (S) it(C) is.

  14. John says:

    I shop there every Tuesdays, it’s been over 2 years since I’ve last seen the lobster tank. I’d say this is a very old video.

    The branch of the unnamed supermarket company has been shut down by the Municipality.
