What's pissed you off today? Nah, you don't want a hug, you want to rant; let us know why here.


Me? I'm so pissed at PayPal right now.

I want to buy something from a reputable company but unfortunately they had the bright idea to only take PayPal. I try to make a purchase and it doesn't go through. I try a few more times and nothing. I call up support and in the customer service rep's broken English, she tells me that the problem is solved but it'll take an hour for the changes to set in. Guess what happens in 2hrs? Absolutely nothing, the problem still there.

I call back the next day and again in broken English, I'm now told that the problem was never solved, but there's a security lock on my account and they don't trust where the money is going. I tell them I know where it's going, I trust the company and wanna do it anyway, "Well there's nothing we can do about that." So there's nothing you can do to stop your own security system from blocking me from making a payment? "Our security system is the best and knows what's best for you."

What are you, my fucking mom PayPal? Fuck PayPal dude.

And you know what? That website I'm trying to buy from can eat a dick for only accepting PayPal too.

Today, I lost multiple online chess games because of stupid mistakes.

My ELO rating dropped below the thousand mark.

I just make stupid mistakes during chess, in general, and there goes my rook, and I'm in check.

Why is it so hard to book a CT scan? Like I'm paying for a service. I had to call like 7 different numbers to find out what type of a CT scan the specialist I saw wanted. Know why? Because his fucking secretary never answers a phone, never returns a call. So I had to go a big roundabout way to get the info.
Every year, I hear on the radio how much money employees cost businesses by taking sickies but I know for a fact that they loose more business from sheer incompetence. How many times have you rang a company and they've said they'll call you back, but they never do.

Fuck off.

That mildly annoys me sometimes.

This thread appeared at just the right moment. I'm really, really, really, really pissed at the stupid Trojan that decided to make his way into my laptop. And yes, I said "his" because the stupid virus is a "he". He has been so persistent in not letting my army of security softwares kill him, that he deserves to be treated as a person. I call him "John", by the way.
Now, I think I've finally destroyed him (at least, the generals of my army say that he and his troops of adwares and spywares have been obliterated), but I'm not letting my guard down. My archenemy could come back and, if we come to this, I'm ready to format him to death!
You won't have my computer, dear John! I'd rather see him dead than suffering in your grasp!

...and, yes, the computer is a person, too. His name is Fitzwilliam. Just in case you were wondering.

Here's my rant about Sprint. So, about 6 months ago, I texted the special number to find out when I'm eligible for an upgrade on my phone. Right away I get a response saying I'm already eligible. Awesome! So I jump on the website and all the options are talking about lease plans that bump mu bill. So I call in to ask about it and they say that, while my contract isn't due to expire till December, The lease option is there in case I want to pay double the cost of the phone but spread it out over the next two years. Fuck that noise.

So I wait until my actual renewal comes up and check the website. Now I'm seeing the options I wanted, to renew my contract in exchange for a discount on a new phone. Some of the options say "Online only" so I call in to ask what the difference is if I go in person. I like going in person because I've gotten pretty good at knowing when someone is lying to my face. The phone rep tells me I have to go down and find out because they have their own things going on. Fine. Later that day, I go down to the store, wait about half an hour before this guy comes out to ask who's next. He then tries to insist that the attractive woman who showed up after me and whose name appears below mine on the sign in sheet had gotten there first. I'm having none of that nonsense so I point out the way sign in lists work and he reluctantly agrees to help me.

I tell him that it's been 2 years and now it's time to upgrade. Cool. Then he asks me if I want to lease a phone. What? No. Why would I want to pay all that extra money? Well, apparently they only do lease plans there because The contracts are too good of a deal. So I go home and start browsing phones online. I really wanted something with a stylus but, the Note was discontinued on account of the explosions and the Stylo has half the resolution and processing power of my 2 year old phone. Then I call in again to see if they can talk up one of the ones they currently offer.

The rep doesn't seem to be listening to me and keeps trying to get me onto a lease plan even though they can't present a single benefit of doing so. They transfer me around and I get a lot of different answers to the same few questions. I eventually get sent to customer retention and that guy offers me a credit for upgrading and again tries to sell me on the lease program. I get frustrated and give up.

Eventually I get the idea of just buying an older, unlocked Note 4. But, before I do so, I thought it wise to check and make sure that they'll activate it if I bring it in. So I use the online chat function to talk to a rep. That rep assures me that I can, in fact, port in any phone I'd like. Awesome! But, when I get the answer I want, I like to be sure of it. So I ask again. "Really? Any phone? Even if the online listing says 'Verizon'" "Yes, just tell the seller that it's going onto a Sprint account." "Wait, why would the seller have to know that?" She tries to explain it away before 'finding out' that only the two highest Tier Samsung phones can be ported in. Well, glad I pressed the issue and didn't waste a bunch of time and money.

Got annoyed and took my annoyance to Twitter like a petulant child/future president. @Sprintcare steps up and claims they can help. I'm reluctant but, fine. I don't really want to go through the hassle of getting a new provider. I tell them that I'm annoyed with all the double talk and they offer me scripted platitudes and yet more double talk. I got a total of 4 different answers about porting in an outside phone. This isn't helpful to me at all.

Today I said "Fuck it." and decided to just take advantage of my phone insurance for a replacement on the grounds of water damage. Which is true. I knocked it into a dog dish a few months ago but have been holding out because the deductible was higher than I 'd prefer to pay. But, for a little less than I would have paid out the door, I'm getting a new phone of the same make as my current one without having to sign a new contract with those lying assholes.

Am I the only one that just gets angry when lied to repeatedly? I certainly don't want to do business with someone who relies on deception to placate me.

Nice to get that out of my system.

Thanks Bryfang.

@Sleeper

I don't know how it works over there, but here these people are paid based on how many contracts (or whatever it is they're selling) they close. So they would do anything to increase that number. And I mean anything, even lying... or forget about saying important things.
But yes, you're right. It's infuriating when it happens. It's like they think we are stupid and can't see through them.

Recently, about half the time i click on a YouTube video, it plays that same fucking Google Maps commercial. JESUS CHRIST, that thing is infuriating. It always plays this awful music (If you can even call it that; it's just some woman yelling while some shit Dubstep plays in the background) and it's gotten beaten into my skull so many times now. Every time i close my eyes, i hear that terrible fucking song. And the video's got a skip button, but get this; the video's so short that it ends before you even get to experience the satisfaction of smashing that skip button. It's one of the most cruel japes I've ever witnessed.

Just going off of what Dudedude was saying there.

There's an add that pops up for me continuously for a company called Deliveroo. Stupid annoying song. But get this, the skip option is available but the cheeky bastards place a pop up in front of it so you got to x that before you can skip the ad. The sheer arrogance of it.
Great way to get me to never use your business guys.

Pricks.

The joys of Adblock.

Merged Doublepost:

The worst YouTube ad for me was Watchdog 2's trailer. It was 29 seconds, short enough to bypass the skip button requirement, so there was about thirty seconds of your life spent compared to a reasonable five.

I have my own grievances with Deliveroo adverts, mainly because they don't deliver to my postcode so there is no point in me taking interest in them.

My rant of the day is about my job in Academic Admin. Specifically, University lecturers and their complete inability to understand or meet deadlines, or to tell me if they need more time to get things in. Recently I've had to deal with one guy who wouldn't send an exam paper, and when I had to escalate the problem to management, they starting going 'I don't see why I can't just give it to you the day before the exam.'

Maybe because the exam paper needs to be formatted by our team, be validated by a lecturer from another university (known in the UK as an External Examiner), then sent to the central university to be printed. You can't do all of that in a day. I'd be sympathetic if they were new but this is the third year in a row!

Admittedly this isn't everyone I work with, and I'm sure there are plenty of lecturers who are very reliable, but I have at least 4-5 people who repeatedly refuse to respond to emails until I escalate the problem to management, and they always get away with it.

My rant today is with Microsoft email. The other day I decided it was time to finally change my password. I changed it, and now it won't let me get into the account at all.


The worst part is I have tried to call the service line, but no answer after fifteen, twenty minutes and I tried to fill out the form to change the password. I failed twice and now it won't let me get on. The is my main e-mail account too.

I CANT FREAKING AFFORD TO MOVE OUT!

I mean I can but all of my paychecks would go to bills with nothing left over for food, cloths, outings.

I can not go back to my mother's house as I would be stuck with watching my brothers( The Autistic one and the eight year old) every damn day, and right now I live with my grandparents and my other two brothers whom are 10 and 8 and living with her is hell on earth. She refuses to let me empty her TWO dressers in her back room as she hordes so as a result my cloths are all over the place and get lost.

I'm stuck dammit

I hate winter. I have since I was little, and today's the coldest day of the year so far. Not to mention for almost the entire day none of my skype friends were online, my computer crashes whenever it wants to, and I'm bored as heck.
