    Can someone explain to me how someone who don't bother to read your adress and send your new guitar to the wrong city works for a shipping company? Because I am blown away right now.

    This actually just happened to my fiance's dad. He ordered a gift for a friend to be shipped to him (in southern CA), and it ended getting delivered to someone in NEW YORK. Blew my mind that it could be that far off.

    I'm planning on buying a house. The thought of not being able to buy guitars for a while makes me angry. And sad.

    I believe this belongs in First World Problems thread, but yeah I can see why it'd be unsettling.

    It's been 8 years now, but buying my house was the worst back-and-forth with which I've ever had to deal. The seller tried to renegotiate the deal at closing over the heating oil in the oil tank that was used whilst the house was listed on the market. I came very very close to walking away from it after all of the work that went into the deal of getting a mortgage, home inspection, realtor, etc., all over a few hundred bucks, simply because I am very stubborn and it was clearly a bullshit thing to try to grab some extra cash by making ink pen changes to the contract at closing. Worst sellers ever, and the realtors and attorneys involved were useless at calling the move out for what it was. Eight years later, I'm still pissed about it.

    But I hope your transaction goes much more smoothly.

    I fucking hate physical books for college classes, because you only need them for ten fucking weeks, and even more than that, I hate buying books from the Barnes and Noble bookstore at my school when you order them online. Why? Because you can select "rent used" and they'll just sell and charge you for whichever fucking version they decide to and it ends up costing 2-4 times as much.

    This could all be fucking solved with a goddamned cocksucking EBOOK OPTION YOU FUCKING WORTHLESS PRICKS! I don't care to sit here and strain my back to the side to read a goddamned book while I'm sitting with a laptop trying to do goddamned homework. Just give me an EBOOK so I can fucking switch tabs in Chrome.

    Seriously, it's 2018, not 1918. Provide a fucking ebook option.

    Call me a dreamer, but paying someone to tell you what you know became obsolete before books did. This is coming from a guy who $pent five years in college.

    It still blows my mind that colleges and universities make you spend $150+ on physical textbooks to drag around every day for only a few months and then never touch again.

    Actually, no, it doesn't, because post-secondary schools are greedy as all fuck and know they can make more money off of physical books instead of ebooks.

    Lots of engineers find their books online using other means, but I wouldn't know anything about that. :coffee:

    Hey! I'm currently in the process of doing just that! I'm waiting for the mortgage to be approved & surveys to be done.

    FWIW it does make me sad. :ugh:
