Just got off the phone with UPS.

The first guy I talked to kept repeating “sry adverse weather, see it says so right here on the site, I don’t have any control over what goes out for delivery when” until I asked him to transfer me to the person who DID have control over what goes out for delivery when, at which point the conversation went into an infuriating mobius double reacharound of:

Him: I don’t have access to that system.

Me: Okay, so can you please transfer me to someone who DOES have access to that system?

Him: I don’t have access to that system.

Me: I know that I’m asking you to transfer me to someone who DOES.

Him: But ma’am, I don’t have access to that system, I keep trying to tell you.

Me: I KNOW THAT, I am asking you to transfer me to someone who DOES have access to–

Him: Ma’am, I don’t know what you want me to do, I don’t have access to that system.

Me: *mute* FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU *unmute* okay do you have a supervisor, can you transfer me to your supervisor, how about that *thinks “oh my god if he tells me he doesn’t have access to that system I am going to cry”*

Him: I can do that.

Hallelujah Chorus: *plays*

So the supervisor at least put forth some effort into trying to find out why the hell the local facility has been sitting on my shit for two days now, but all she could get was “it’ll be delivered in the next few days.” And she couldn’t give me the phone number to the local facility. Or even tell me which one it is. However, I did finally get a response to one of the e-mails, and that associate let slip that my crap went to the Sweetwater service center.

So I can either suck it up and wait for my shit in peace, attempt to find a direct phone number to that center, or call AT&T and go…

On the plus side, my Wii adapter is scheduled to be delivered today (shipped from Maryland a day after my U-verse shit, mind you–yes, UPS can drive a package halfway across the country in less time than it takes to fly one from Dallas to Houston, note to self, never have anything shipped 2-Day Air again ever) so hopefully that will resurrect my Wii so I can at least play Guitar Hero or some shit while I’m waiting for UPS to give me my really important stuff. ;_;

The longer you look, the funnier it gets

I got rid of a bunch of junk over the weekend, including a stack of ancient game magazines. I had to keep this one to scan and show you, though…

Apparently, either DeeJay is eleven feet tall or Cammy is a halfling. That might actually explain where the fuck her midsection went, though.

Not even going to start on the faces because oh dear God.

I am all for strong female characters in books and movies and games and everything else but dudes? You are doing it so, so, so very wrong.

Moar plagiarism fail from Hot Topic!

You would think Hot Topic would run out of feet in which to shoot themselves sooner or later, especially considering that there was just such a shitstorm not twenty-four hours ago but… ha ha oh WOW.

These, they didn’t even bother to camouflage–they’re directly ripped off from Kawaii Not.

Oh, come ON!

Seriously, this CPSIA shit is getting out of hand.

Possibly the best thing to ever float across ONTD_P.

Someone either a) had no idea what that bear means or b) knew exactly what that bear means.

In other news, yesterday I came home from work fighting off a cold or something, played Animal Crossing in a daze for about an hour, went to bed around 7ish, and did not move again till about 8:30 this morning.

I finally caught a fucking blue marlin, at least! Now if I could just get a birdwing butterfly I’d be happy. I have seen one. ONE. And couldn’t catch the damn thing.

Caveat wootor

  • Posted on May 23, 2009 at 1:30 pm

So the Intarweb Boyfriend spotted a Zune on for something like $75 and thought it looked like a sweet deal, and so he proceeded to order one. And much like I’ve been poinging and poking RedOctane all week in anticipation of the arrival of my fancy metal DDR pad, he’s been poinging and poking and tracking the whereabouts of his incoming Zune.

And yesterday, his Zune arrived. Well, it was the box that supposedly contained his Zune, anyway, though it seemed… strangely light. But hey, whatev, Zune. So he opened up the box and…

This is about the point when I received a text message from him to the effect of “So here’s the contents of my Zune box.” Attached to the message was this picture.

Your initial reaction is probably something like “Uh… heh… okay, and…?” Mine was exactly that, anyway. Because the thought that he might have paid $70someodd for a completely empty box is just not even a logical conclusion to draw, right?

My response: “…I hope that picture was taken after you removed the Zune from the box. Otherwise, FFFFFFFFUUUUU.”

His response this morning confirmed the FFFFFFFFUUUUUU.

So apparently the people at woot were appropriately mortified that they took $70someodd from this nice man and sent him an empty box for it, and they’re going to send him another box, hopefully one containing a fucking Zune, but it won’t even go out until Tuesday at the earliest.

But they are going to fix it, and this is the first thing I’ve ever heard about woot that was anything less than complimentary, and I’m sure it was an honest mistake, but I’ve had my share of mail-order misfortune and holy crap, I have never gotten a completely empty box, this is an entirely new level of hilarious fail.

Things that make you go FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUU

At least when Channel 2 started poking around, the hospital went “OH SHI-” and dropped it this time, but GAAAAAH RAGE that this is even happening at all.

Um. Amazon?

WTF are you doing?

No, seriously, what the actual fuck are you doing?

A glitch? Really? That’s a pretty selective fuckin’ glitch there, doodz.
