Little Things You Hate

So after getting told off for using some cable ties on my cables and dynamo wiring, @moorey posted a couple of neat cable solutions one being the ones from Canyon. I had a look on the Australian site and they were $6.95 a set but the postage was the standard $59 :oops: So I emailed them asking if that was correct, I got a reply saying no it will be $11.95 and if I ring before 3pm same day postage, called and got 2 packs, sweet.

So why am I posting it here, well got I got an email at work saying they were delivered today, nice! Get home open the package and pull them out, 1 pack umm… where’s the second pack? Nope they only sent me one, ah fuck it, I’ve now emailed them to see what’s happened to second pack. The young guy did tell me it was the last two according to their system :rolleyes:

They have had more than last time I was there already!

Quite a few Japanese ski fields have been getting pumped this last week or so. Oddly...the field that usually opens first (in November) still has no snow.

And their government is intent on ruining my summer.

Black Friday.
Getting spammy fucking texts from retailers trying to encourage you to buy something.
However, sending me spammy texts will ensure I never buy a single thing from you again!
I have so much hate for this years Black Friday Sales
  1. if you can suddenly drop 15%-20% - 30% off why are you charging me so much the rest of the time?
  2. Stop saying "Off Selected Items" and then list all the trash shit and sizes no one wants as a "Sale"
  3. Why have Black Friday when I have been getting "Early Access" for the last week
  4. If you are having a Black Friday sale and I am buying stuff off you on a Thursday at least mention it - I am looking at you Autobarn :(

Yeah, fuck those guys! It’s like they rely on sales to stay afloat or something!

But yes, I’m over it from every place under the sun, including places I’ve never shopped at or recall even viewing their website. I guess it’s got to the point where so many are doing it, that anyone not doing it feels like they’ll can’t possibly complete if they don’t jump on board.

This is my current inbox. WTF!

I bought earrings for Christmas for the Missus (that's my story and I am sticking to it) They had "Black Friday" 20% off for the last week so bought them on Tuesday - all week I have been getting text messages and emails telling me there is a Black Friday Sale on - No shit Sherlock I fucking already bought stuff in the Sale!!!!

It isn't even black Friday.
Wait til Cyber Monday Hits!!!

It's not even the emails (thats to be expected), it's the text messages that can't be blocked due to no sender :mad:
