Shopping

G listened in to my call today with FedEx. He gasped a few times at the sheer fuckery of those idiots. While the agent was in India or Pakistan and barely comprehensible – obviously not a native English-speaker – what little I understood was enough. The girl today told me their contract with Dell says they can’t deal with me without going through Dell, and of course Dell is laughing its ass off at my…

Tunnel at the End of the Light

I miscalculated how many photos I took on our trip. I think I beat G’s total – I’m pretty close to 1400.

It’s a Trap!

On today’s episode of More Computer Crap You Don’t Care About FedEx delivered a nice shiny new computer Wednesday! Unfortunately, they didn’t deliver it HERE. FedEx has a photo and internal GPS records confirming delivery to the wrong address, and they went back to that house to collect it. Naturally the people where it was delivered denied receiving it. (And for the record, had it been addressed to them they’d be within their right to…
