|08:10 pm - Vexation|
After a series of breathless emails from eBay, my wordtank arrives. Put batteries in. It doesn't work. I go online to contact the seller. Bought as a guest so eBay wants an access code for the order. "Check your confirmation email for your access code." I check the confirmation email. There is no access code. The packing list gives me the guy's name and snail address, which is not a huge help.
My mobile company was swallowed by the godless empire of Rogers. They keep sending me emails to select a new plan. I go to the webpage and as requested, give them my number and PIN. The webpage tells me my PIN is wrong. I change my PIN. The webpage tells me my PIN is still wrong. I call support. "We are experiencing higher than average volumes of calls." I just bet you are. "Wait times estimated as half an hour." Estimate is wrong.
And it's still hot.
While not quite behaviour that prompts one to kill a thousand youkai, it is distinctly vexatious. Sympathy.
Thank you. I wish to be Zen about things like this, but Zen doesn't come just for the asking.

UGh! *HUGS* - hope it all gets sorted out ... eventually.
And hope it cools down for you somewhat.
Thank you. And I see you got your fic mojo back. Congratulations!

Ahahaha! I don't know about it being a mojo ... it's still tough. ... and twelve more ... it's going to be a tough call even so.
But thank you. ^_^

I hope it all resolves well for you.
Thankfully there are fixes. Seems in my anal-compulsive fashion I saved the original eBay post to Bookmarks and am now in communication with the seller. Rogers gave me a temporary PIN and I've signed up for a new program. Must still get the PIN thing straightened out sometime, but till then is good.
