From Perpetually Indignant: Deep in the result pages for leather ottomans on Amazon, came across this mismatched picture. I guess the ottoman got tired of stinky feet and replaced its profile picture with a suggestion.
This happened this week. A gem of a customer decided that the best way to beat the lines in the store would be to order off our website from the parking lot of our store.
She (customer) saunters into the store starts demanding her order at the online order pickup counter. Well, she has received a confirmation email but the order hasn't even been transmitted to our store yet, much less sent her an email saying the order was ready. I get a frantic call from the downstairs manager asking why we haven't filled order for product yet and tell her the order isn't even showing up in the system yet. I grab one of product anyway and run it downstairs to the manager just in time to hear customer laying into her about the wait and blah blah blah I just ordered this in the parking lot to save time and blah blah blah.
Cue manager: "Wait, what? No, this isn't how this works - you can't just order from the parking lot and walk in thirty seconds later and pick it up. Give us a minute and we'll get this sorted out, but this isn't how this works at all."
We’ve all been there before in grade school when one smart aleck tricks us with a silly pun. Perhaps with the classic ‘Pen 15’ club trick. You know the drill. Peter Ness happens to have the perfect name for this trick, so he joined some online blackjack games with the name P. Ness. The dealers all seem to instantly get the joke after saying hello to Mr. P. Ness.
This gem of a network name was spotted while we were on holiday (and a wedding) in New York City last week. In a world that's flooded with networks, its nice to see the moms are being looked after by their offspring.
