Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum


Recommended Posts

Yesterday was a Monday, to be sure.

 

My boss decided it was a day to stay in bed. So I was acting manager and didn't know it. We got a hundred million dollar plus cases dropped on us, and by us I mean me because guess who was in charge that day. I had to get them distributed along with everything else. Another team we're working with has decided to start rejecting work Because They Feel Like It again.

 

Need more coffee. Need more pay, too.

A former MMO buddy told me warranties are just another Socialist ploy to destroy the economy. Yes, it was part of a long rant so far down all kinds of rabbit holes I'm pretty sure the alt-right would call him crazy. Definitely enough I decided to walk away from.

I thought society was getting better at that after the years of Mac vs PC commercials, but somewhere along the line it reversed course. 

Might have something to do with how most major apps have iOS and Android versions. I'd bet money a lot of people think the only difference is which app store carries them.

Without ModvisionTM , we are still on p996.

Yeah. Going by what the site showed me, we somehow lost a page earlier today. Right after I tried broccoli's broccoli without noticing it was an animated GIF. I'm sure there's a perfectly legitimate reason to wear a tinfoil hat in that coincidence.

No warranty?

It has/had a warranty. I think it was only 1 year though and we got this in January of last year. If it's a longer warranty I can't find paperwork that confirms that.

I started my new position at the front desk yesterday! 

 

Except kinda not really because none of my logins for the different programs are set up yet. IT assures me they are "working on it." Also, the other member of my old team had to leave early because he wasn't feeling well, so I had to handle all of his stuff, plus some of my old stuff, plus various people trying to teach me New Stuff. 

 

It was, as they say, a DAY. :zombie:

 

Same situation today, but I'm handling it a bit better. It's still frustrating to be caught between two different jobs; haven't quite left the old one, but can't quite do the new one yet. Honestly, it's exactly what I expected, but my OCD brain really prefer clean-cut transitions. 

 

Huzzah!

You might want to inquire with your local consumer protection office. I'm not entirely sure, but think WA was one of the US states that limit disclaimering out of implied warranty, which probably is longer than a year for white goods. (I had to do some research on this a while back when at out office, the question came up whether "the US even have consumer protection".)

Especially as the tinfoil hat actually serves as an antenna for the mind-control rays we're absolutely not broadcasting from an undisclosed location near you.

Check the manufacturers web site for a copy of the warranty.

Worth a shot.  One year seems awfully short for something like a pump assembly.

I want that mini for bones 6

 

I believe that the iPoison has something to do with that

 

Back when there were PC vs Mac commercials people realised they needed to learn about technology, then modern dumbPhones came along and everyone forgot they needed to know anything...

THis sort of crap is why we have our consumer protection laws in AU, unfortunately just because we have these consumer protection laws doesn't mean that the companies actually bother respecting them, or anyone bothers policing them

Your post was the last post on Page 995 for me. I don’t play with settings so you might be able to assume that as a “default” condition. Safari browser on iPhone SE

Keep in mind that this is also the society that thinks the browser is the Internet.

OY!

Today is a borderline migraine day.

All the symptoms, lights sensitivity, upset stomach, feeling like I've been turned inside out. Plus the whacking big headache.

Just took "the big red pill".  If that doesn't work in an hour it's time for a dose of hydrocodone, which, on top of the big red pill, will probably almost knock me out.

I second @Green Eyed Monster's suggestion to check the manufacturer's website.  Also check to see if there is any class action litigation pending regarding your specific model/manufacturer, as that may affect the warranty. 

I found out during our LG Fridge saga last year that many warranties are quietly extended for specific problems on specific models, but they're not widely talked about, especially by service companies.  The disreputable ones will charge the consumer for the part and install, and then turn around and claim the warranty from the manufacturer, but more common is that the service company isn't authorized to do warranty repairs by the manufacturer. 

With our fridge, LG had extended the warranty on that specific part, so we were covered - but that wasn't something I knew about until I started trying to figure out who could fix it.  And it was during that struggle to get it covered under warranty that I learned about another impending class action lawsuit against LG, and used that as leverage to get them to pay us off, rather than continue to string us along.
