World's most boring blogger..

| | Comments (2)
I've really not had *anything* interesting to say the past couple of weeks (well seven years really - holy crap have I been blogging that long?!?).

ok, why not a rant about ThinkGeek.  First, we have a $300 order, with a $127 postage fee.   

WTF?!?

And then they want to subject me to anal probing:

Thank you for your recent order with ThinkGeek.  We would like to process
your order as soon as possible, but we need to verify some information
before this can be done. 

Acceptable verification information chose one of the following:
(A) (Credit Card orders only) A copy of the credit card used to order,
with only the last 4 digits showing AND a copy of your government issued
ID.
OR
(B) (Credit Card or PayPal orders) A copy of a statement from a service
provider or financial institution, that shows the billing address
submitted during checkout.

Again.  WTF?!?

Given the ridiculous prices and postage fees, and now this, I doubt I'll be putting in a ThinkGeek order again any time soon, if ever.

If it had just been me I might have, but I was already committed because about five people were putting things in. But yeah, will try and source my stuff from other places in future.
