[F.U.C.K. is an e-zine that I started on January 24, 1993 and ended on January 24, 2000. One concept is that articles should be timeless if possible, so they were not released with dates. As such, the date on this blog is not exact but I will try to use a date as close as possible.]
People suck in a major way. I have new career aspirations now. I want to become the president for one reason. So I can fuckin’ nuke our own country and save time a little effort. Given, a few more years at this pace and our society is going to digress to living hell, but why not just get it over with? People don’t deserve to live anymore.
Fate(hate) has brought me to work at Computer City. A nice big computer warehouse that sells any computer related item. Welp, a few days ago we submitted an advertisement to a local newspaper and behold, today the ad was printed. Ooops. They kinda misprinted one of our computer systems. Something like a 486/25 with 200 meg hard drive, and a gob of other peripherals etc, advertised at $129 dollars. Yep, the ad should have said $1299 dollars. No big deal though, since at the bottom of the ad it has a disclaimer that mentions no one can be held to those prices in the event of a misprint.
People are too fucking greedy/stupid though. They see that and run down to the store to bother me about it. First two people through the door ask me where that system is. I quickly explain and they start bitching. I then point out the disclaimer that they ignored, and they bitch more. Finally they ask to speak to management, somehow expecting a manager to honor that so we can take a $1000 loss on a system. Sure, no problem!
I mean, it is complete, unadulterated stupidity that would make someone think that that kind of system is going out the door for that price. They come to the store, not calling to check the price, and start crying at everyone that we are evil by going back on our word. This system is advertised in-between two other comparable systems, each for around 1200 dollars, but common sense doesn’t kick in and tell them something may be wrong.
The people that bitch at me to get a manager, and then bitch for the manager to honor that price are the ones that are fucking ignorant. It is so simple. So clear. So plain. Whoosh. Right over their close minded heads. My absolute favorite person was the one who called the newspaper and demanded that they pay the difference. Fuckin’ ignorant.
I could go on and on about other customers bitching about everything from return policy to being out of a particular item.
If you own a PC, don’t ignore those big red letters saying MAC when you buy software. If you purchase something, read the return policy BEFORE the policy expires. Use common sense and the brain you were(or should have been) given.
