Rikkitic:

Maybe you should have told them you would be happy to bring it back for them in exchange for $500 worth of groceries for your trouble. Heck, tell them you will even cut them a break since you are devoted to civic duty and will be happy with just $200 of groceries! What cost-conscious business would not jump at an opportunity like that?



The above may very well be in the wrong thread, as it definitely made me smile!

Receiving a txt from Spark saying that the price of the $29.99 Onebill plan is going up $5 and "We recently emailed you about this, but can see that it didn't reach you." If they know there was a problem with the email, they didn't email us at all.

No, they just never saw you take any action from the email. They probably had their outgoing emails blocked by the excessive spam filtering that they apply.

No action was required. Maybe people earlier in the billing cycle have already reacted to an unannounced increase.

Yet another example of companies doing stuff without any testing: One of the guys at work was just showing me the TAB website, which was apparently recently redesigned. The field for entering a bet amount is now broken. He did his customary "10.00" bet and accidentally bet $1000 because he didn't realise that the "." doesn't work anymore. Fortunately the horse won!

 

Upon further investigation he found that the "." on the main keyboard works, but the one on the numeric keypad is ignored. Why?!

Do scooters have solid or pneumatic tyres?

It depends. The cheap ones are solid. The good ones are pneumatic.
