I bought some new hardware for a computer at work. Said hardware needed some random cable to work. Said cable costs some 8$.
Like a fool, I order the cable from Dell, since the computer is from them, and psychologically, people around would feel better if only “Dell certified” things end up in the box.
Shipping costs for said cable is over 8$, even on the most basic option Dell provides.
Dell, in some fucked up business move, uses DHL to ship said cable.
Retarded delivery boys (girls?) at DHL will not mention when they are going to show up the next day to try to redeliver once they’ve missed you, other than to say “PM”. Nice move geniuses, now all I have to do is wait for you from 12:00+ PM in the middle of the fucking afternoon through 12:00- PM in the middle of the night.
Obviously, said delivery company misses me all three times.
Since said delivery company is such a big shop, their nearest “pickup center” is a couple of cities away.
I call to try to ask them if they’re willing to ship it from their pickup center to my home, for a nominal fee.
They say, of course, for a nominal fucking fee of 15$.
All in all, I’ve almost decided to cut my losses to just the original 8$ + morethan8$shipping and let them have the fucking cable.
