A Couple Questions

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

Why is it that the Fastlink in Shmesani employs a number system which allows it to operate efficiently while the Fastlink kiosk in Safeway allows people to shove their way in "line", resulting in utter pandemonium?

Why is it that 90% of the "seedless" grapes in Jordan contain seeds? Do the supermarkets actually know what seedless means?

Are you trying to imply that seedless means that should NOT be seeds? Teehee. Maybe they think it's like flammable and inflammable and both mean it can catch on fire :).

I haven't been to either Fastlink you're referring to, but I'm impressed if the number system works. I haven't seen many that do :). Usually people push their way up to the window to "ask a question" and never leave...

You should try the Jordan telecom (now orange) counters at (Rabieh) !

One time, the auto-numbering system crashed, and the cashiers started taking 5JD bills to let people pay their bills.

Then those who can't afford 5JD were attacking the counter, and they called security.

It was a nightmare, I got to pay my phone bill after 3 hours of waiting.

The seedless grape season lasts about three days in Amman. I don't know where they get them, but I usually miss them anyhow.

I detest seeds in my grapes. Last year I bought a bag of raisins, and guess what? Every single one of 'em had seeds in them. Yummmmy.
