Well, it's Thursday and I'm going back to work. I was supposed to return yesterday, however I ended up taking a personal day because something cropped up. Something other than the inauguration.
My new color printer was set to arrive 3 days after I placed the order so bright and early, before I even had a chance to start writing my bog entry, I went to went to my 'orders' tab at Amazon and clicked on my recent order. To my surprised, the cost had dropped $88 dollars, from $423 to $335. Wow! I requested an adjustment from Amazon, who sent my request to the 3rd party seller, Provantage LLC. An hour later I received my response. Provantage LLC does not price match after an order has shipped or is considered complete. I was astounded, but then I work for the largest home improvement retailer in the world and I can say we have no problem price matching an online order as long as the time period is within reason. So, I processed a return and the minute FedEx dropped that printer off on my porch I threw it in my car and drove it over to the UPS Store. I also filed a complaint with Amazon about Provantage, and in doing so discovered a number of complaints have been filed against them through the Better Business Bureau. Ouch. Now that I've got that bitch moment out of my system... on to more interesting things.
And, as you all might suspect, I did watch the inauguration. Now, wasn't that simply fantastic! I must say I enjoyed the lack of pomp. Simplicity can be very powerful. We now have a Centrist President who understands the diversity of America. One party one the election fairly and legally, the other has lost in so many, many ways. While America anticipates a Biden presidency, do not doubt that their eyes are still on the losers, watching as that party dissolves.
