    Reverb weirdos are the worst. I once had a guy begging with 50 lines of messagges for a 40% discount because "that's all he had in his bank account at the moment".

    I have a guitar being shipped from Japan by FedEx, and it is currently stuck in Memphis because the US can't handle some snow. Been stuck there for 5 days now. We Canadians can send over a couple of ol' snowplows to clean ya shit.

    (I jest, I understand it's really shitty for some communities down South. I just really want my guitar right now. :( )

    New guitar fell off strap. (Technically not new but 2nd hand but you know what I mean). Barely played a note on it. Should've put something on there to keep the strap on better.

    oh geeez! That's my worst nightmare! I had that happen a couple of times, and now I have 2 not cheap guitars with some pretty major dings. ...they're still playable and they still sound good though so I'm not as bad off as you are there. OUCH!

    It's just such a shame, got it last week.

    Will probably get it fixed but it'll cost me about the same as I bought the guitar for. Probably not really worth it but I'll fix it out of spite.

    That made me double over in pain-cringe... that sucks so much! I am low-key terrified my guitar that's stuck in the mail will arrive that way.

    Hope you enjoy it a ton after you get it fixed! Best of lucks.

    People keep buy larping my BC Rich or being unreasonable like expecting me to ship it internationally in the case for free. Yes I want it gone but I'm not putting up with that headache and losing the ridiculous amount of money that would do. I'm already losing a lot of money at the current price and it has 1200 views and 49 watchers, with 4 people that've had it sitting in their cart for a MONTH. I've been harassed over it, annoyed, complained at, literally everything. I want it gone but everyone seems so content to waste my time and patience that I'm not buying anything any more.

    The pain in the ass of the inevitable resale of something that's not a perfect Holy grail bit of gear keeps making me want to end it all and I'm losing money.

    Yikes, that's somehow one I've never seen before.
    I've been super lucky with gear mishaps so far- the only bad one was a few years back when my rack got knocked over and domino'd my guitar stand, with my old PRS getting the brunt of it. Nice rack-corner shaped indent on the back. Can confirm being the first guy to put a fresh ding on a mint PRS makes you want to scream and plead guilty to a crime.

    Man I had the same thing happen to me with an old ibby saber I was selling on Reverb a while back. Listed at $800 which is a decent price for an S5470, and would constantly get clowns asking me to ship it, insured, internationally, at no cost, usually with a lower offer. Like dude, it's a production Ibanez. You can get them mainland, I promise. But it still always had a ton of people watching / viewing every day, everyone just wanted to lowball. Took a few months to sell even though it was the lowest priced 5470 on the internet.

    Also am I the only guy that low-key feels like an asshole liking posts in this thread?
    "Oh man, something terrible happened to you? YOU LIKE THIS" :lol:

    The wording definitely makes it feel that way, that's why I think we should rename "likes" to "agrees" or "concurs."

    Is there a word for "I found this funny, or maybe I agreed with your point, or I was gonna reply to this but after writing a paragraph I realized I was just doing a bad job of paraphrasing the point you made?" there's probably a German word for it...

    Finding a dual flush, button style, 2" aperture, 12" flush valve for a single piece toilet is fucking impossible. Impossible. :mad:

    Holy shit man, I never thought a guitar falling off a strap could do that much damage. The neck joint must've been really strained to begin with, unless it fell off the strap while you were hanging on a 3rd floor balcony or something... Either way, goddamn. I'm probably gonna have nightmares of that image :lol:

    Yeah me neither, it's not the first guitar that has fallen off a strap either. It's just so weird. And I was just standing on the ground, not even really moving.

    I had a package delivered. My apartment building doesn't have a concierge so they just end up leaving packages downstairs in the open lobby.

    ....someone took my package..... >_< .... -_____-

    It was probably an accident since this is the first time it's happened, but still.... super annoying.

    I feel this pretty hard right now.
    Gf is currently doing a midterm in the office with the door closed. So I'm working in the dining room and am on cat wrangling duty. Took 30 minutes for them to give up and start their early afternoon nap.

    Stress fueled depression. Trying to learn a new song and will have certain riffs down at 70-100% speed one day, and the next day it's like my muscle memory forgot to switch on and I can't even make it thru the riff at 50% speed without my fingers forgetting where they need to go.

    When did apartment applications become as fucking infuriating as job applications?

    I viewed a place on Monday, $1300 including all utilities so I jumped on it. Filled out the application on Wednesday morning, and then they asked for my proof of employment. No problem, send over two pay stubs and say they'll be in touch. They run my credit, and background check, both check out, still no word. Then they come back asking for a bank statement, unconventional but fine, if it gets me the apartment here you go. I've sent documents to them every day this week, and they keep asking for something new as if it's going to make a difference, and I still don't have an answer 5 days later.

    Originally my broker thought we'd have an answer the next day, now I'm not sure when to expect something. They're showing the place for an immediate move in, but they certainly don't seem to want me to at this rate.

    After running your credit, background, and getting pay stubs, I would've stopped. Seems like after that, they are just playing games.
