Kuwait Co-ops

I usually go through the house books every week or two, because the driver is the one who picks up the groceries for the house. A little while back I noticed something which I thought was a mistake, but I noticed that it happened too often. When you go to the co-op you give your number and they record the sale for a competition or prize or whatever is going on in your local area, but the more you buy the more points you have. Thats not really the issue, the issue is seeing a different number on the ID number then our house’s ID number, I thought it was a mistake. After looking into it, it turns out that the people at the register try to put in the ID number of their friend in the area. So I told my driver to watch out for it, but I saw it happen in front of me when I gave the guy at the register our number and he procceeded to punch in a  completely different number.  I told the man at the register either he puts in the correct number or I will be reporting him to the police. So please people if you buy from the Co-ops and have number make sure its your number on the reciepts. I found out it happens at different Co-ops as well.

  1. That’s terrible!

    I mean, I thought they were all innumerate chimps. Clearly they’re smarter than I thought.

  2. Lol….that’s amazing that you noticed it. My co-op receipts end up straight in the bin – where they belong. ;)

  3. Laialy: yeah seriously!

    moocherx: the chimps are developing brains!!!

    Stallion: just watch for it o inshalla it never happens to you!

    Yazeed: yeah, it adds up very quickly tera!

    Toxy: I do the books when I have time, but I always look at the numbers and ask questions! hehehehe

  4. thanks for the warning. i always give the cashier at the co-op a number but never paid attention to what number he punches in.

  5. As far as I know, only Kuwaitis qualify to be part of a Co-Op so I don’t see how these foreigners could benefit unless they’ve made a deal with a Kuwaiti.

    I have seen numbers punched in when I did not have a number at a certain co-op and made a big fuss.

    But this is different ….and much more serious.

  8. Jewaira: Both are serious! You just need to watch out!

    3baid: I think you are correct in that assumption, everyone who did reply regarding that is Kuwaiti.

    CuddleCakes: Just pay attention!

    teagirl: I agree with you!

  11. hey there… jus wanna say hi n i love yer blog template :)

  12. I had the exact thing happen to me, but i reported the cashier to the Co-op manager on station at the time, who ordered him to reverse the transaction & re-enter them with my subscription number. I later heard he was fired because they investigated this cashier & discovered that he was working other nefarious schemes under their noses.

  13. Aggy: Its good that you caught him! These kinds of people need to caught and held responsible for all he did!
