Fuckin’ PayPal and China

Afternoon Me Droogs N Droogettes
What the hell is it about me n the Ole Lady going out to eat?  The other day at Texas Roadhouse it was a steak that was disguised as shoe leather.  Yesterday, we stopped on the way home for an early dinner at Cracker Barrel… fuckers served me a Deep Fried Southern Steak that tasted like it’d been sitting in the freezer since the last Ice Age… I mean I could literally taste the freezer burn…

And then we got home and the barfing began.  Me AND the Ole Lady.  Puke O’Rama.

Goddamn it.

So, for Laughs BTW:

Love that one…

To get to it:  Today’s Piss-Me-Off is dealing with PayPal.  The Ole Lady likes to order her clothing online as she gets some pretty good deals… She also is a big girl… not fat… just BIG… Like IRL Amazonian Big… Think WWE Chyna Big… that being said however, there’s been quite a few fuckups.  Especially when she orders something that comes from China.  Chinese XXL is -not- American XXL… in fact, Chinese XXL is barely a medium here stateside.  Runty lil fuckers, all of them.  So occasionally, she’ll order something that comes in and its a laugh-fest.  Like what happened this past go-around… the fucking Shorts she ordered came in, and –might– have fit the Grandbaby (2 years old LOL)… I made fun of her (she got pissed per usual) and she repacked it, as the shorts were too small, and the blouse was a no show.

She then called PayPal to get the return started.

Did I mention the return needed to go to motherfucking China?


Hoo boy.  Dealing with the mini-minds and retards at PayPal has me convinced that they are possibly the stupidest customer support I have ever dealt with.   And thats saying A LOT as I’ve done enough customer phone support and worked with some real winners

Round n Round I go with this idiot, telling me we don’t get credited until the shit gets back to China.  I had to explain to the monkey on the other end of the Phone that A) The United States Postal Service ain’t delivering to China no more, and B) That the town in question that this shit is totally locked down on quarantine.

“I’m sorry sir but until we get proof and notice from the company in China…”
“Dude, you -know- there’s a strong possibility that they’re all going to be dead… I’m pretty sure ain’t none of them working right now…”
“Again, I’m sorry sir but until we get proof and notice from the company in China…”
“Can I speak to someone with a brain?”
“Hello, this is the manager…”
“Yeah, uh Hi.  We got no way to ship this stuff, unless we use a shipping method that’s worth more than the stuff we’re shipping (I had looked… $50 USD and -no- guarantee the shit would get there) and it seems really stupid to be this uptight… I mean she didn’t even get the full order…”
“I’m sorry sir but until we get proof and notice from the company in China…”

Oh holy shit.
Fuckin DRONES man.  
Mindless fucking corporate DRONES.  The whole fucking lot of them.
All for $40.
Told the Ole Lady its a fuckin wash man.  Just write it off.
And then, another Satellite Update.  For shits-n-grins I scanned Wuhan.  Apparently the fires that -had- been burning have shifted a bit to the south of the city.:
Now this came up on FIRMS but NOT MODIS.  However, the reflectivity/heat cat is pretty high.
Kickin it at 329.6 Kelvin… around the 1800 degree level if what I learned was correct.  And.. checking the MODIS shows (as the resolution of those pictures is better:
There ain’t shit for industry out in that A.O… so methinks they’re still doing “Open Pit Mongolian BBQ”…  I don’t know what that small housing/warehouse area ios, but the fire is just south of it a bit in the open field, and near a main road that I can tell.  Not really sure as I’m not a sat-analyst by far… but just a grunt who was/is pretty good with land-nav and using SatMaps during my times overseas.
Add on the news from the Love Boat has kinda sort -stopped- overnight leads me to believe that pressure is being put on a LOT of people to quiet down on just HOW BAD real-time IRL infection rates are.  
Which would explain why they seem so desperate to get anyone and everyone off the damned boat.  DESPITE it being in quarantine.  I think they want to scatter everyone to the four corners of the Earth and let them be forgotten.
After all, right now, the Boat is under a microscope, or at least it was.

Now?  Not so much.  Everyone gets scattered and real-time monitoring goes out the window.
More Later, time for some food
I remain The Intrepid Reporter
