I know I am going to piss off some people by this, but hey - maybe they can help me and readers have a better understanding. Fer real.
First, why does it cost 15KD to have anything notarized - per stamp? Is the embassy self-sufficient or are they appropriated funds? If they are appropriated funds, why is the price so high and where does the money go? (Please see paragraph 5 below for recommendation.)
Can I continue to complain about the parking? Just a leetle?
I don't go to the Embassy of Kuwait in Washington, DC and create a new middle lane of parking (not that I could because the parking is on the street, but it would be the equivalent of me parking in the middle of the street). Why is it that the US Embassy allows people to park willy-nilly-as-you-please in their lot? I park correctly - what the F? I give those "keyfi" people dirty looks when I see them doing that.
Otay and the other thing is - even the cheapest places I go in Kuwait have covered parking. Et tu, American Embassy - why you no have covered parking for your visitors? I don't get it. It was like 120 degrees F in the parking lot today and the little rubber thingies on the bottom of my stillettos were burning off. That no gooooood.
What I do like about the parking lot is that after X years of being located at the "new" complex in Bayan, someone finally got around to creating several handicapped parking spaces. (Let's see if handicapped-only parking is enforced, however.)
