The wonderful world of online support

leave a comment »

I’m going to start a theme on this blog. I’m going to post the highlights of my encounters with online support systems. I say systems, because I don’t want to make any radical assumptions about the existance of humans on the other end of the line, although sometimes you think ‘no way a robot could be so dumb’.

thanks,I live in London, so I switched to snapfish.co.uk. As soon as I log in there, I can see my pictures – but the credit is gone!

Hi Yishay,Thank you for contacting us and expressing your concern. Please note that our records indicate that there are no free print credits available in your Snapfish UK account.

Dear Ryan,Thank you for rephrasing the problem. When i signed up for snapfish I was promised 20 free prints. I have never used this offer. I can log in to snapfish.com and snapfish.co.uk with the same password, and see the same photos in my library. In the .com account, I am still offered the 20 free prints. In the .co.uk account I am not. I know there are no credits in my UK account. That’s what I’m contacting you about. There should be 20, and there are none. best regards,

– Yishay Mor

Bring on the Burka!

In most cases, modesty is vanity under a veil of hypocrisy.

But then, when you hear that sponsors are putting pressure on female athletes to use their sexuality to promote the goods, you can’t help thinking there’s something to be said for a garment that shouts: “my eyes are here”.
