Ha!

My boyfriend is selling some bike parts on ebay, and some dude emailed him yesterday to ask that he stop the auction and sell it to him instead. BF responded saying that the auction was going well, and that because bids were higher than expected, he was going to throw in some extras for the winner, so the guy should keep bidding. He then got 6 increasingly aggressive emails asking why he hadn't stopped the auction and sent this guy the parts.

Wow, some people are so self-entitled. Was he going to go far above the current bid price or did he try to just stop it at the current price?

A guy ordered a hoodie from our online store. I packed it up and sent it to him the next day. It's been a week since I mailed it, and according to the tracking number, it is now at a post office he says is 5 minutes from his house in California.

He has sent me three emails asking what he should do.


I had this one shitty temp job supervising logistics for this bro-tastic college events company (I know, it was painfully awkward) and part of the job was sending out tents, prizes, promo materials, etc. to various FedEx stores around the country so local "coordinators" (usually a student of the college where the event was taking place) could pick it up with a U-Haul we'd paid for, do their event, and then take it back to FedEx and ship it to the next location. I had one guy call me from DC because the FedEx location the stuff was shipped to was not the closest FedEx to his house and he wanted us to have it sent that one instead. Keep in mind, the distance between 'desired' pick up and 'actual' pick up was 4 miles. And he had the aforementioned U-Haul.

So I said "I'm sorry, but we chose that location because it's the closest FedEx to the campus where the event is. Your event is tomorrow, and if we were to re-send the materials to the other FedEx location, it would necessitate them sending the packages back to the sorting facility and then re-sending them to the other location, which wouldn't be accomplished until after the scheduled end of your event."

Him: *siiiiiigh* "it's just really inconvenient."

Did I mention he was getting paid to do this?

Is this guy unfamiliar with the concept of eBay? Or with the general concepts of "auctions" or "bids"?

Yeah, this is a drag-assy Friday. I think D needs to forward you the email so you can post them verbatim ;)

Everyone is terrible. And you wanna just say "Well, *I* think it's really inconvenient that you keep bothering me with something you could easily solve on your own, buddy, but guess that's just my opinion."

I wish! He's wrenching away in the bike mines today, so he's not very entertaining for either of us. :(

Today i got to use the line I've been saving for a special occasion (and some other choice words after it):
"I'm a revisor, not a miracle worker." Too bad there are only about 3 trekkies in this country and i can't send an accent through an email, because i really wanted it to be in a scottish accent.

I got the update! The guy sent a duplicate of his earlier email demanding that D send him the Paypal invoice for the parts (which, again, D is not stopping his auction and selling to him). D has decided to ignore.

That totally happened to us, and we almost lost the house. It really sucked.

well, star trek reference or not, i've told this client to go fork himself. even though it is a $3000 project i've wasted a week of my life on and will need to get my carpal tunnels looked at again. the client "doesn't like the way it sounds". The original was crepe, so garbage in: garbage out. My comment about making miracles was completely disregarded, apparently. bummer.
i am finishing work for my other, nice clients, and taking this week off. i can't stand the drama in this field (the agencies try to fork you six ways to sunday, and your colleagues are paranoid and backstabbing. you can't win) even though I love writing and translating more than anything else I've ever done. Maybe this week I can spend a day coming up with some new career direction I hadn't thought of yet.

I feel like usually things come in waves- a run of good luck, a run of bad. I am about ready for this tidal wave of shiitake to go the fork back out to sea.

I wasn't at work today, so I missed seeing this one personally. A strange man was hanging around the street and parking lot outside the shelter for about 2 hours. Then he left and apparently flagged down a postal worker and gave him an envelope to deliver to the shelter. The postal worker said. "I can't deliver this. It has no stamps," and the guy said, "No no, it's okay. I work at the animal shelter. Just give it to them." So when the mail was being delivered, the mailman went inside the shelter and said, "Hey this random guy gave me this, and the whole situation weirded me out, and I have no idea what to do with this, but he said he worked here." And the staff was like "Nooo, he does not." They opened the envelope, and this letter was inside:

Quote:
This is a warning! Do you know that 45% of boys over fourteen are playing the knockout game for no reason when police are not around, you can buy as many as seven dogs today because boys over 14 are going up to strangers and punching people in stomach, balls and faces and backside, these dogs will protect you from bad guy, if a dog saw any guy approach you, dogs will react by barking. Other dogs have back rock bone. If any men went up to a women walking her dog or by her, her dog will react. Dogs can sense danger, If a man came toward you with a baseball bat, your dog will jumping and attack any attacker. If any guys punch you and your dog does nothing for the first time, wait for the second time. These dogs will listen to every commend. [Caution] Do not abuse your dog or any other puppies in any way, you can yell at your dog but if you hit your dog or kick any other dogs, these dogs will turn on you and attack you and kill you, if you dog watch anything video on animal cruelty with your dog, your dog will disown you, or run from you. If your kids are scared of dogs, tell your kids not to run from dogs or dogs will chase. If you're going shopping where pets are not allowed, don't trust anyone to hold your dogs, just put them outside. If you have a van, you can teach your dogs how to open doors or windows. If you can't afford these dogs, find them on the street or go on MapQuest or Google map and type in animal shelters or go on craigslist or Angie'slist.com and you'll find them. If you work at animal shelter, you can buy dogs; you can choose to walk dogs everyday. If you show this paper to anybody, you might not get a job at Animal Shelters.


The top of the paper had photos (obviously taken from various websites) of people with black eyes and such, and the bottom had photos of smiling women with dogs.

So today is our adoption event at Petco. The woman who sent 39+ emails called three times and now has shown up. The head of the rescue just needs to tell no way are we adopting to her. (We explained we had other applications that came in before hers but she will not be deterred.

Please tell me she went home empty handed.


My dear callers, if you are not willing to book a $35 consult (which is the cheapest in town by at least $15) then I am pretty certain you are a payment risk. I will treat you as such. Getting made because he won't give you "two minutes" (which we both know means the 1/2 hour you would get with a consult) is just going to tick off a lot of perspective lawyers. So, no, I won't take your message.
