What you did today?

Recommended Posts

I bought an XBone controller from Amazon that came with a faulty A button, so I sent it back and Amazon refunded the controller in advance. I had the refund added as a gift card to my Amazon account because I immediately ordered a second one.

That was a month ago. Last Friday I got a friendly reminder that I should send the controller back since Amazon refunded it in good faith. Rifling through my order history I noticed that they received the controller I sent back but refunded the second order. The first order, the one that I actually sent back, reads that they're waiting for the return of the goods.

I contacted their customer service and they said they'll look into it.

Well...  they now mailed me that they've cancelled the refund of the first order and are going to charge my credit card. Le sigh. Just mailed them and asked that they simply remove the second gift card they've given me. I wonder if that will work.

So are they sneaky bastards trying to get a free loan worth an XBone controller from me or is it just incompetent help desks being incompetent help desks? :p

It's usually incompetent help desk.

I still remember when my energy company charged me for two months that I wasn't even living in my current house yet. It took a full year for them to finally do something about it and then *I* still had to pay a handling fee even though it was their retarded mistake. Really don't get why these people are so stupid at times, even though everything is clearly traceable.

Saturday I changed the rear brakes on my wifes car and then went to a block party pig roast. It was super hot outside but the pig was delicious and the beer was cold.

And then the wife was unable to break and now you're single again. What a great day.

The thought of a roast pig makes me salivate..I love pork , was there loads of crackling?

It was an entire pig from snout to tail, the only thing missing was the organs. I think the dude cooking it said it was about 100lb so there was LOTS of skin and meat. The crispy skin is one of my favorite things!

Holy hell now my credit card's been charged for what appears to be two times the price of a single Xbone controller.

Somewhere in the government of my state there is a guy by the name of Science. I've never met Science but I guess he's pretty well thought of.  He gets quoted quite a bit. Science tells us X. Science shows that Y. Usually this comes from politicians and higher level State bureaucrats. The ones who never took math or engineering classes. So I guess Science works in Nashville somewhere.  I'd really like to meet Science and talk to him because if he's telling these people what they are repeating to us then he doesn't know what the f--k he's talking about. 

You know the majority of my career has been in private business. When the companies I worked for (with one huge exception) did something stupid I just shrugged it off. "It's not my money they are wasting" I'd say. Not that I am a "public servant" well... it kinda is.
