@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:05 PM)

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

"I hear you, but you know how it is, there's nothing I can do about it." That's it, basically.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2019 - 06:40 AM)

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

Siobhan Tilly, Sylvia's mother.

She's never seen onscreeen, but she's a key character in one of the Discovery prequel novels, and she is the most horrible mother in Star Trek. Not just funny-horrible, like Lwaxana, but every word out of her mouth is to berate or criticize her daughter and belittle her life choices. She's the reason why Tilly is so neurotic by the time we meet her.

Navi - Zelda OoT, needs no explanation

Reginald Hargreeves - Good grief! Talk about emotional abuse!

Balak - damn Batarian scumbag. And the thing that just really gets me is that in a paragon play through, he never gets his comeuppance

Gavin Archer - when even the paragon option has you pistol whipping someone and threatening to shoot them, you know the character's about as scummy as you can get.

Kai Leng - even my paragon Shepherds never fails in hitting that one renegade trigger

Hudson - whinny little bitch. Newt was braver than this guy.

Carter Burke - at least Hudson manned up enough to save Newt from a facehugger. Burke was the a-hole that tried to kill her...a child!

But most of all, and probably most inexplicably...the Silver Millennium Crystal from Sailor Moon.  *snip*

 

Yeah, it was a pretty bad McGuffin. I got into the original anime first, then when I read parts of the manga and they're killing the small-time baddies so easily and there's barely any character or redemption like in the anime. Oh well.

 

As for the topic... I think one char that comes close to pure hatred for me is this person:

It is tough, as there is "love to hate" and just plain "hate."

 

"Love to hate" would be characters like Kefka from FF6, various incarnations of the Joker (some are better than others), Thanos, or even various Megatrons.  You like the character, but hate them and what they do at the same time.  They tend to be my favorite types of bad guys.

 

For "hate," I can't think of a ton, but probably Treize Khushrenada from Gundam Wing.  Even David Kaye doing his voice could not save his character.  I am just unsympathetic to him or any of his followers, and it made watching much of Gundam Wing annoying and is one I don't have much inkling to go back to.  Granted, much of Gundam has that trait with unsympathetic bad guys (Zeon, Titans, Neo-Zeon, ZAFT, etc).

Most of the Celestial Dragons in One Piece. Usually with villains I either love them, love to hate them, or roll my eyes at how over the top "evil" they are made to try and sell them as a Big Bad. The Celestial Dragons are irredeemable scum in a way that doesn't feel emotionally manipulative or forced in an over the top manner even when they do outrageous things. Instead the story uses them to tap into a very unpleasant vein of humanity and mine it for all its worth. Slavers, bigots, wantonly cruel. They sit atop a hereditary aristocracy seeing themselves as gods who can do what they please to everyone else... and most of the time they can because if anyone resists the power of the state will crush them.

 

Hate is a strong word for fictional characters, but they are all too human monsters and whenever they get some form of comeuppance I'm pretty happy.
