I ordered quite a few items on 11/11.

Beginning of February (!) the seller said the item was never shipped due a “logistical error” and refunded. well..

I could not make this stuff up, watching the video still gives me the creeps.

My least favourite thing is getting a bill for customs. I don’t mind paying vat and duty but I hate having to pay a handling fee by the courier as well. Amazon and Ebay do a prepay thing for customs that I prefer as there’s no surprises that way.

Ouch! You’re hitting awful close to home there. That’s where all my firearms went. Is it possible that my flashlights aren’t far behind? Crying

“Flasholism is the most severe form of flashlight use and involves the inability to manage your flashlight use habits. It is also commonly referred to as flashlight use disorder. Flashlight use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects. If left untreated, any type of flashlight use can spiral out of control.”

A stranger rings doorbell and hands you a package and says … “ Hi ! I live 12 houses down the road ….I found this in the snow out by the street in front of my house .It had been laying out there for days “ Suddenly you realize all shipping issues aren’t the Chinese vendors fault.
