Amazon fraud detection

Amazon problem

Anyone see any issues with the two items shown above? They were in the “Today’s Deals” section AND right next to each other…

Amazon has a huge problem with credibility when it comes to regulating selling and China. I mean really, exact same pic and exact same title and exact same “starting price.”

You would think a tech giant such as Amazon could weed out duplicate entries of the same thing sold by “different” people. Oh and they should probably ban people and companies that use these tactics, but that too becomes a difficult task. As such, for you as the consumer, you are likely getting ripped off if you aren’t taking significant time shopping and browsing on Amazon.

As always, buyer beware!


Anyone else noticed weird stuff on Amazon? Anyone else irritated by lack of regulation?

Robo calls and I swear

I am on the “Do Not Call” list. So why are you calling me?

Oh, wait, you’re a robo call for a contest I didn’t enter telling me I won a prize that doesn’t exist.

It would be nice if we could just block anything that was initiated as a robo call. Issue solved. Yes, I could block that number that looks like it is from my area but then another number makes the same call two days later.

Irritating.

Technology exists to combat it. Technology exists to combat the technology to combat it.

Never ending cycle.

Annoyed. I swear if I ever meet someone that does this crap…

When you don’t want a chip off the old block

Driving down the highway, perhaps over the posted limit, but minding my own business and staying my own lane when out of the blue there is a huge THWACK!! on the windshield.

You guessed it, a flying object made of stone but probably only the size of a peanut.

No damage this time, but is certainly gets your attention and most definitely riles you up. Rocks on the windshield, or anywhere on the car for that matter, are most irritating.

I commute millions of miles, it seems, and I hate it when that tiny little rock causes a chip in the window. Time and cold weather mean at some point the window is getting replaced. Who has time for that? Who can afford that? I suppose that is why you see cracked windshields everywhere…

Damn little rock.

Rocks are great for mountains and landscaping.

Rocks are not good when you are digging a hole or a trench.

Rocks are not good when they are loose on a roadway and flip up to chip your window.

Rocks are not good when they are in your shoe.

Rocks are not good when they somehow end up in your food.

Rocks are not good when you get hit in the head – whether it was thrown or falling from a mountain.

Rocks are not good when you are sleeping on the ground and they are under you.

Rocks are dumb when you inscribe, paint, or write a message on them.

So, really, other than the first two things what are rocks good for?

The long pause…

You know what I dislike greatly about texting with someone? The long pause between responses.

Now, I understand if there isn’t an actual conversation going on. You know, a text here or there because you both are busy and whatnot. But what I really dislike is that after say 12-15 texts, all of the sudden they appear to have disappeared. Minutes tick away as you wait for a response…then you get a response so you respond immediately and then it takes more minutes to get a response…irritating, I tell ya. If you can’t talk or continue the conversation, just say so.

Am I the only one who thinks it rude?
