So. This 'work' thing... and problems with sales online.



Bit odd, isn't it? I mean, here I am, sat at a computer, doing pretty much what I would be doing if I [wasn't/i] at work, but I'm getting paid to do this...




onlly problem is, doing an apprenticeship, i get paid around half the national minimum wage, which to be hoenst, i'm not entirely sure is legal... could anyone advise me about that?



Meh, i get paid, more than i can say for university.



Anyway, to 'problems with sales online'. As some of you might know, i've currently got a thread up there, fair enough, i have (still not resolved) a problem with Airsoft World.


what gets me is the latest post about a certain brand of digital audio music player.... As it strikes me, the person who SOLD the DAP (digital audio player, for those that don't know) has been very reasonable, and it's understandable for him to be away from a computer, or not have access to the internet at least for some of it. as stated by the buyer

first of all, there are very few places on this EARTH that this [ not having internet access] is possible...

That made me laugh. Up until about a year ago, i still couldn't get broadband. I still know friends on dial up, and i know for a fact that very few of the smaller, third world countries have such a fascination with the internet as western europe and america does.


over all, it seems to me like the seller is completely in the right. He's offered a refund, pending the return of said DAP, or a payment towards the repairs.


the buyer dont like this, though, and it just makes me laugh. He's been rumbled, trying to get money out of a seller, and as he's gone public, theres no way he can back down without proving that he was having the seller on.


Watch and observe, and laugh at silly people who buy things!




Comments welcome, btw.
