ugh, Sony fail

So Sony’s terms of service are officially a pain, and possibly set up to benefit people who steal account information… but not the owners of their consoles, make sure you read your terms of service guys.  Hopefull f this happens to enough people or if enough people raise a stink about it they’ll fix this broken issue.

 

Time stamps have been changed to protect the irritated;

Me : no in the past 5 days sony has asked me to reset my password every day and i have still not been able to activate this system as my primary
Sandra: I’m sorry to hear that you are having issue with the activate as a primary, but I’ll be more than glad to help you out to solve the issue as soon as possible.
Me: i don’t know what to do
Sandra: Just to confirm, the account information you entered before you initiated the chat, is that the account you want to work on?
Me: yes
Me : i have some ps3’s but no problem with them just my PS4

Me : is that correct?
Sandra: Just media?

A response from a rescue…

This is the response i received from the rescue that i sent the e-mail i posted yesterday; “Good morning,

You would take him to The Washington Humane Society on New York Ave. They will take care of having him neutered and placed up for adoption. The cost would be on the shelter and not you. Since you can’t afford to care for him, this will be the best option for everyone involved.

Thank you for caring for him thus far, and I hope this information helps.”

Am i wrong to be underwhelmed with this answer?

SAMSUNG

SAMSUNG

 “Especially since two dudes just dropped me and my  mom off one day and you didn’t send me to New York avenue…”

i mean, i’m not asking them to take the dog, i’m asking for a low cost spay and neuter appointment…. out of curiosity i asked if they were a no kill shelter.

Now i have volunteered in the past so i really appreciated this blog post http://blog.warl.org/ however, i have a dog  i do not want to die, but cannot keep because i did the right thing and adopted my dog, whom i care for to the best of my ability, and will do so until the end of his days, but he is expensive and not dog friendly.  I also rent so i can not have 2 dogs. I am trying to find Oso a new home, or a shelter that will take him, because his original owners did the wrong thing.  so how do i find about his odds of life in these two shelters?  I ask simply “is your shelter ‘no-kill’?” Am i wrong to ask this?

 

 

 

Does this sound unreasonable to you?

Good Morning,

My friend found a dog, they took him to their vet and found he was not microchipped.  We put up found flyers all over he area and were contacted by his owners.
They do not speak english, but they have decided they do not want him back.  They stopped speaking to us before we could get information on why or what his medical history is.
We all currently have dogs and can not afford to keep him (They have an arthritic 9 year old great dane and i have a 4 year old doberman pinscher undergoing treatment for primary IMHA)
He is 8 months to 1 year old and we would like to re home him but we would like get him neutered first, however none of is very well off.  Can you help us?  What should our next steps be?
We don’t get paid again until the 4th, and rent is due so it would have to be after that, can we make an appointment that far out?

Ugh

I’m having a life.   The short story is don’t buy this product: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/1bfc/

To put it lightly it’s a POS and maybe a little bit racist.

It cannot stand even when properly assembled, and I would call it defective. The reviews on the website give it away.  The plastic braces are cut to different lengths and the connections are sloppy. When i contacted customer service they were just as  sloppy as their creation.  They did not want to pay for return shipping for their poorly constructed product and were stingy with the store credit.  This bad boy is going back.  I avoid Think Geek’s customer serivce theses days as in the past year i have never had a satisfactory interaction with them.  It’s a shame as i used to buy fromt hem a lot more often.  Now as much as i want the stuff they sell, i’ll have to see if i can get kool geeky toys somewhere else.  it’s just not worth the hassle of worrying that they’ll fuck up and i’ll have to deal withsome newb, who just wants to get me off the line so they can go back to product testing.

I recomend against shopping there until they get theirs together.

And of course i’m out of toilet paper >.<
