Off To Vote

My friend told me that its best to go vote either first thing in the morning or around lunch time. Thats when its supposed to be the least crowded. Thats what he said.. we’ll see. 🙂

When are you going to vote? it ends today you know.. 😛


Apparently my friend told the rest of Kuwait about the perfect timing too. Half the population of Kuwait was standing in my line alone, which coincidently was the slowest moving line of them all. The people behind me (2 old men) cracking jokes and counting every second did not help at all! I tried to drift away in thoughts so that time passes a bit faster but they were always there to pull me back with their endless annoying meaningless chatter!

Guy1: you know its taking 5 minute for each person?
Guy2: 10 minutes.
Guy1: yeah about 10.
Guy2: and we have about… hmm 1,2,3…. *counts* approximately 40 in front of us. thats 400 minutes!
Guy1: oh wow! 400 minutes are like.. hmm… 4 hours!!!

At that point I just wanted to get up and leave, But thank God I managed somehow to block them away for the remaining time I was there. 2 hours and 10 minutes later I was done.

Hopefully some of the people I voted for win.

20 minutes waiting my turn (around 20 ladies ahead), the voting itself around 2 minutes to announce ur name and give u the election sheet and choosing your candidate, then put the sheet into the box.

P.S. it is too hut but it worth to go NOW before it become crowded again. It is expected to start the za7ma after el3a9ir prayer and of course after alma’3rib!

Om FasoOoL LOL! I went and all the rooms were having huge queues so naturally i went “thankGod my name doesn’t start with an M or 3,” then I found my queue. I was in the same line with all the M’s of the world. karaht 3omry.
