I have had it with mainstream and cable news. I am done buying off Amazon and eBay. I am done, but I am still livid. No one is honest anymore. Not the government, not our families, not our friends or neighbors, and worse sometimes our church. I now have to question who I choose to trust and who I choose not to trust and the golden cord that once connected me to this world has become increasingly small. Does anyone really ever tell the truth? Or is that just out of fashion?
What about buying online. They take your money then they claim they deliver your packages and you wait days while the seller is given due deference while you languish waiting to find out if your money will be returned or not. I am sick of it. I am sick of USPS misdelivering their packages and or stealing them. I am sick of Amazon deliveries because God forbid you to live in an apartment complex it is too much to bring packages to your door so they throw them on the porch or in the bushes. By the time you are notified that your order has been delivered, and they do not follow your delivery instructions ever, the packages are gone because some nice old guy or gal decided to help themselves to it.
When you call customer service, wow, they are all in other countries, hard to understand and they believe “all Americans are rich.” That is a joke, I am not destitute thank God, but I am not rich and I do not know any rich people just may be well off. So this notion that all Americans are rich and or spoiled is nonsense. Period! Sorry if this is not socially correct, but it is nice to speak to a fellow American! Ok? Sue me! I want to be understood! Hello? Do you hear me?
Oh let us not forget the media, Fox News is on my hit list. The objectification of the women on Fox News is appalling. Cocktail dresses at 5:00 am or 11:00 am or at any time – sorry I do not think so. The make-up and hair extensions are outrageous. Eye candy mainly for men who are watching is disgusting. Why turn on the news when half the time these women including the judge look like they are ready to go for drinks. Does no one care that since the 1920’s women fought for equal rights and pay, not objectification? People want news not opining about what you think about the news while you’re dressed for a lounge or some brothel. Harsh? Maybe we should be harsh. We have been quiet too long. Why are we putting up with this insanity and nonsense? Hannity is dating Ainsley from their morning show. Watters cheated on his wife and married some 25-year-old former producer of his show. Yet we listen to them tell us what our moral compass should be? I do not think so because their glass houses will break, they always do. I think right now I had better thank God mine is brick and mortar.
Now to you! Where do you stand? Are you to the left or the right or in the middle all indecisive? We need to take our nation back. Put people in offices because they are qualified not because of their color and why are we outsourcing our jobs? Americans need jobs. Americans want to work. Well, at least most of them do. What about the thievery going on at USPS, UPS, FedEx, and other delivery services? What is being done to stop that? I am tired of all the things wrong in this nation and amongst our citizenry and we cannot do a thing about it or can we?
I am a forgiving person because I know I have been forgiven by God, but I am growing impatient with all this insanity in the US and around the world. It is wrong, and it is taxing, and truly I am exhausted. So in conclusion, I will thank you for reading my rant and tell you if you are wondering why I went on this tangent and did not put up the article I had originally planned to – that will be up Wednesday – here is your response.
You see, I am not always the most patient person, but I try to be. I am not always the nicest person when my back is up against a wall and I have to argue with morons to replace my orders or return my money for merchandise not received, and simply put, they do not want to cooperate with you because of some arbitrary rule or some lie they just made up because they can. It is a shady deal to be treated this way and I know I am not the only one.
Who is the stupid one? Them or me? I mean they asked me if I checked my mailbox, looked in my bushes, asked my neighbors, not that they would admit they had my package if they did, so that would do me little good. They ask me to file a complaint with USPS. Really? Do they think I would make phone calls about missing purchases for fun? Do they think I am so stupid that I called without looking in my mailbox or doing much of what they suggested first? I do not have the mental strength as I get older or the patience to deal with such disrespect and ineptitude. Amazon was okay when Americans worked their customer service, not now. I canceled my Prime they can have it all. eBay has had no customer service since 2019 because they said Americans could not understand the outsourced foreigners they hired. Poppycock! Hire Americans, but oh I forgot they too want slave labor. Now they have chat, sometimes, and mostly chat by “BOTS.”
As a paralegal I can tell you that eCommerce Laws do state that until the customer has their merchandise in their possession then it is the responsibility of the seller to resolve the problem so they must 1) refund or 2) replacement. Now you are lucky if they do either! There is no resolution to the problems with my online purchases. I will no longer engage in any online purchasing. I’m out money …. but hey, it’s just another day in this BANANA REPUBLIC!
