    why do so many companies use DHL? i've never talked to a single person who likes DHL

    Years (and a couple of jobs) ago, they screwed a client of mine over by misdelivering a set of mailing labels they needed from a mailing list they purchased. I've never forgiven them.

    would instakop if not for that fucking text.


    Not sure what the original song is, but Fatboy Slim sampled that line in one of the songs off of You've Come a Long Way, Baby. As such, it just makes me think of mid-90s electronica.

    Also, 94-degree weather and 22 oz. denim do not mesh well with each other.

    DHL shipping drives me crazy. There is no anticipated delivery time, but you have to sign for packages. WTF? Some of us don't have the time nor inclination to sit around all day, even if we are waiting for a a sweet Number (N)ine belt.

    You should post a picture of all your belts like RFX and his leathers + shoes.

    I think May was the first month in a reaaaally long time that I didn't buy anything.

    Only problem with that is the zips on RFX's jackets cost more than all of fok's belts.

    How is that a problem?

    I had a package delivered by DHL a couple months ago. It was a horrible ordeal.

    fucking ay they're terrible.

    Email them asking why they overcharged me customs, they email back with a literal copy paste from the customs website.

    email back twice saying that i can go to the customs website myself, and that they clearly cant do maths. No reply.

    fucking idiots.

    haha yup, it was closer to $300 for my trickers.

    they overcharged me though. the total price in NZD was 800, but they add shipping to the total price when calculating GST. however, shipping was inclusive in the total price. they then calculated GST and somehow came out with $200 (GST is 15% here so wtf?). the other $100 was customs fees and their own brokerage fee on top of that (despite the fact they already charge like $60 for shipping in the first place).

    Even if the total price was 1000, GST would've been 150 so i don't get how they charged me 300.

    never using them again.

    I once got a $200 customs bill in the mail for my navy patent astros from oki-ni in 08.

    I used it to light my cigar.

    fuck that hendrix!

    yeah, never had any bill with USPS or Fedex. Definitely not using DHL again.


    I don't have a problem with tax. I don't even have a problem with customs fees.


    I do have a problem with brokerage fees when you've already paid a large sum for shipping. And idiots who can't do maths. and people who think a copy and paste from the customs site is a suitable reply.

    Had some bad experiences with customs, I have since not ordered anything overseas, problem solved. There are some good US based sites popping up anyways.

    Also how can you gloomy fuckers hate summer? Can't hide behind a shield of sweaters/jackets all year. Of course I only enjoy winter exactly 1 week of the year. 98 degrees today and loved it
