We Don’t Have Stamps

According to an article on the Kuwait Times website, "During the past one month, Kuwait’s post office has run out of stamps that need to be affixed on larger parcels, and people looking to send packages abroad are met with the same response offered by postal officials: 'We don’t have stamps.'”

The article goes on to say, "A Friday Times investigation indicates that the stamp shortage has been caused by the absence of an employee, who is responsible for the distribution of stamps across post offices in Kuwait.

"According to an official at the Ministry of Communication, which is responsible for the smooth functioning of all post offices in Kuwait, the person who is in charge of supplying stamps to the post offices was on holiday. 

"Only a few large post offices in Kuwait provide the facilities for sending parcels. These include the postal centers in Kaifan, Salmiya, Hawally, as well as the main post office in Kuwait City, an employee working at the Shamiya post office pointed out."
