Bull Crap!

So, I'm skipping my first class for 3 reasons (ranked in order of importance): I forgot I have to make a dish for a potluck shindig tonight, so I'm cooking; to sleep in; to possibly work on some English. At any rate, I'm at a point where I have to wait, so I thought I would check my email. And I got another email from Future Shop.

It is such a pain in the arse to order from them. Apparently, not only shipping info they want, but they want the address and phone number of where your credit card bill is sent to. Okay, no problem, I told them everything they wanted to know. One possible problem: my bills are sent to my parents' place up North. I usually move once a year, and my mother doesn't have high faith in my record keeping abilities. Since they are helping me with some of my schooling, I'm not going to argue. Moving on...

So, they phone my mother's place to validate my order. I had to phone them to validate, and then explain my financial situation to them (in other words, why is my billing info different from my shipping info). What bloody business is it of theirs?!?!? Then the guy almost started a lecture saying that VISA should have my phone number.

Listen, buddy. I'm ordering something from you. Do you want me to cancel my order? Is my money not good enough for you? I've never had to do this crap with any other company or website that I have ordered from, so why are you doing this to me? What I ordered was a Xmas gift for my lovely sister, and if they keep dicking around, I won't get it in time. So, I thought I had everything cleared up...

Until I checked my email and found, yet another, "I'm sorry, but we are unable to process your order at this time" bull crap email. So, I wrote them a curt email back, and if I do not get a "validated order" email by tonight, I'm canceling my order and going back to trust ol' Amazon.

Bloody bastards.

Damn Big Brother... and Future Shop
*nods* Agreed! Someone told me Future Shop is within 6 business days and no shipping charges for their regular shipping. I haven't had issues with Amazon either, but I thought I would give Future Shop a try. Well, lesson learned. *scowl*

Anyway, how are things? I'm good. I thought that this would be the best place to check in as neither of us are that great at using the phone - who knew? So, yeah, hi and stuff.

Slunt?!? *grins* I think you push buttons on the phone to make it work, no?

Okay, message loud and clear... phoning soon. Over and out.
