him: no ,, we did not .. im sorry ... when did u send it
me: last night!
him: ooh last night doesnt count. u have to send another fax for today!!! :s :S

SCREW IT! hell with u, hell with the number, hell with the fax, hell with the company,
and hell with all these premitive systems weve got! the SLOWEST u could ever imagine!! and very annoying..
i was like making phone calls AS IF i work for them !! :S

i was late for over an hour to meet up with my friends, i couldnt get directions to where we were meeting!! i was totally lost and couldnt call them! :( -sorry girls :**-
NARFIZOOOOOOOOOONI !! if i was in the US i woulda sued them fo wrecking my nerves!! u know being nervous causes women to get wrinkles!!! now whos gonna pay for that! :p
ppl sooorry 3l hathraa .. adre thba7tkum i needed it OFFFF my chest :p
oh in case ur wondering i paid .. and the line stayed not working for three days!!
thats .. 72 hours! makes me wonder .. what kind of network theyre working on!

ive always been an advocate for them! and i still think they rule! totally better than MTC but they really need to work on their SUPER slow system.. we pay money we expect a good service. amazing how it doesnt take them a minute late to disconnect ur services but 72 hours to activate them after theyve been paid for!! .. its like they dont care.
bottom line:

HA! serves u right for dissing MTC :p sh7alata i cant even remember the last time my fone line was d/c'd

ZiZoTiMe said...

Y did u need the line so bad again? ;)

Nice commercials for other companies :)

And hey... Watch the language :P

Anonymous said...


so sorry to hear about that dear

i can imagine all the old systems they might be using

also i don't think it was smart of u to be entering your pin while someone id on the line

Marzouq said...

Wow! Chaan yanaaait! The one time MTC disconnected my line I was pissed! But it took them 24 hours to get it back up and I didn't have any features such as caller ID switched on or caller waiting! Yanait minhum!

Bes that is just rediculous! Why didn't you just go to an NBK branch taken a slip of the transfer and then went to a wataniya store and ask them to life it!

For me I make sure to go to the MTC store to have the damn thing cleared! Ba3dain when its paid and not on after an hour, abda'a azif!!! hehehe.. bes some people on the other line misaakeen, moo uhma ely yaboon eyaninoonich! Bes they should learn about customer service!

Yazeed said...

pay at the mall
i dont trust anything online back home, other than kncc or cinescape or whatever its called these days.
plus u should know better, always have an express line as backup, always!

SpiKeY said...

at last something against wataniya

well lets need to relaaaaax....cooool doownnn....hear the air breeze....get out the tension....u have no problems anymore....and change to MTC....

3ady i had this problem with united networrks..i sowre soo much last week..i think they will stop recording any more complaints..

Amer said...

I have been through similar thing 2 years back, my line didnt start for 2 days n i wanted to kick their ass off, the best thing to do is, which i have started doing is that call 121 and pay with your credit card,they will activate the line in 5 mins and then you can payback in your credit card laters :) good luck

NiQa said...

wow! someone if pissed. u typed an entire novel.jeez i dont do long posts.. but just wanted to tell u WATANIAA SUCKS! :) ciao

enigma said...

I <3 Wataniya

Never EVER had a problem with them. And i always receive messages about my bill. Maybe cuz I always pay on time so they treat me well 0:)

Do you have friends like in Congo or Greenland? cuz if I had friends there i would understand why my bill says 150KD :P

True Faith said...

I had an awful experience with a bank that has two of my accounts and I just couldn't stand it so I said


You cancel you're phone number and get one from MTC if you don't get the service you want you just throw their trash into their faces and get a better service from another place.

الوطنية و غيرها من الشركات لايحترمون الزبون
و يعتقدون الفلوس اللي ندفعها صخر
حتى لو كانت 100 فلس فهي "فلـــوس" قاعدين يقبضنها بملايين شهريا
على خدمة جدا سيءة و تييب اليهد

بكل بساطة, المفروض انتي تجيكين جم عليج مكالمات كل جم يوم
وبعدين المسجات لازم توصل ومستحيييييييل ماوصلتج مسجات التحذير وهذا كله يبين بالسستم اذا راجعتي الفرع

واخر شي
لما تندفع مبالغ من البنك تاخذلها 3 ايام عمل على ماتوصل للوطنية من البنك
فالتأخير من البنك مو من الوطنية عشان جذي قالولج خلي البنك يدزلنا فاكس
والفاكس يم الموظف يعني لو وصل الفاكس جان فتحلج الخط
لكن الفاكس ماوصل
فإذا صار خلل بالفاكس فسببه وزارة المواصلات
مو الوطنية ولاالبنك.
