Things you just don't get - Page 1357

post #20341 of 24079
I have always wanted to drive a Bobcat. This little motherfucker even has tank treads and stuff. Super cool.

Anyway the driver came by to collect it. Apparently they'll be digging holes in my front lawn to upgrade some fiber optic shit in the neighborhood. They were using the Bobcat in my neighbor's yard today and had walked over to the next street to do some surveying.

They'll resod my lawn so I guess that's a good thing. Still, I'd like the keys to this thing for the weekend

Mr. Never Call the Cops.  You're getting soft.

I have a buddy who scored a free xbox one out of this...they sent him 2 when he only ordered one. Also, my dad got a trumpet in the mail a few weeks ago. Basically, amazon is pretty good at sending you your shit on time...they are kind of bad at sending ONLY your shit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also note that I am not a lawyer and that law may only apply to things actually mailed to you. If somebody parked their car in your driveway thinking it was your neighbor's, I don't think you get to steal their car.

What if I order something, they bill me twice and deliver two things.  Can I just not return it and contest it with my cc?  Newegg did that to me a couple years ago on Black Friday.

Hmm. Well, if they billed it twice and delivered it twice...how do you know you didn't actually click the order button twice?

Obviously the thing to do is say "hey, I got two of these, please give me a shipping label to send the extra one back and refund my credit card".

Not sure how willing your CC company would be to go to bat for you on the double billing if you refused to return the goods...even if the law was on your side (and not sure it is when the product is something you did order, just double-billed), they might not like it.

Fair point. They'd probably show up and shoot his dog.

Try bribing them with beer. You may not get a weekend but you might get some time.

I used to have a cat but now I do not. It used to be that my cat got confused when I sneezed, probably because it was a sound she didn't expect. And so whenever I sneezed I would say to her "that was being sneeze." I was explaining that the sound she heard was that of a being who sneezed, i.e., that the sound had a rational explanation and didn't just appear out of nowhere. Even though I don't have a cat anymore, whenever I sneeze I still explain to no one in particular that it was being sneeze.

All this interactive graphic makes me think is not "let's abolish DST"...but "Let's have DST all year long!"

Fuck this dark at 5pm shit. I can turn on a SAD lamp in the morning if need be, but I can't light up the world after work when I actually want to do things.

Yeah yeah, some people like to get up early and do things before work...but those people are insane.

When I lived in hroi's sunny land of FL people didnt really care how nice it was through winter. That being said, from about New Year's Day through April 1st the northeast sucks. Esp. February. March at least features everyone trying to spot the good weather on the horizon.

Seriously. I leave work and it's pitch black from now until early March. It's miserable. I don't care if it's light when I wake up, I want to at least see the sunset after I get out of my windowless hole of an office.

Just got a cold call from the company of which I have my home insurance with they was trying to sell me "faith insurance" basically if I lose my faith they will pay to get me set up with a new faith. I was like "I know you're always looking to move into new markets whatnot but this is ridiculous." But the rep told me it was their highest growth sector.

Michael Stipe from REM could have used that service 20 something years ago. Where were they??

I feel like it should be illegal to have windowless offices. Any room without a window or a toilet in it is a closet.

It's seriously impossible for me physiologically/psychologically … no natural light during the day would make me lose my mind.
