eBay’s worthless feedback system


A guest post by Chas C…

I’ve been on eBay for about 12 years ever since I moved house and had a clear out. On the whole eBay buyers are OK, but once in a while you get a fucking idiot. For example, the cunt in Jockland who claimed the bracelet she bought wasn’t correctly described – it was – and didn’t fit her fat podgy wrist. Not her fault of course.

For example, the bloke who bought a book off me, failed to pay or answer emails and then sent me a string of abuse after I raised a non-payment dispute. My fault of course, not his for not paying after he’d had several reminders and an invoice!

Or the one I had the other day who bought a roman blind off me and then complained it was the wrong size because she didn’t read it properly and took the width as length and vice versa. My fault of course because I only stated the dimensions in bold type in two different places in the listing.

I got negative feedback from the last cunt with the blind so I try to leave her negative feedback. This seems reasonable to me as the error was entirely her fault. Guess what? eBay don’t allow sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers. Only positive feedback is allowed ffs!

So – no right of reply, no mechanism for removing inaccurate or malicious feedback comments, and no way to leave negative feedback for a crap buyer.

eBay, you are a bunch solid gold, grade A, greedy, intransigent, unhelpful, biased, up your own arse cunts. And some of your buyers are fucking illiterate, not my fault, rude, self fucking righteous arseholes.

There. I feel better now!

So they died in vain then…


Just once in a while I am appalled by the state of the nation – especially in regards to the ignorance and general stupidity of the average Brit. Such an occasion was earlier today when the results of a survey into World War II were published.

The study of 2,000 adults commissioned by TV’s History Channel found that despite 53 per cent claiming to be ‘fairly’ or ‘very’ knowledgeable about the second world war, 36 per cent are unaware Britain’s allies included France and the US.

One in twenty even believe we were on the same side as Germany, Italy and Japan.

More than a third have no idea that the Battle of Britain took place during World War Two, and despite its name, 43 per cent didn’t know it happened in British airspace.

Thirty-two per cent were also unaware Pearl Harbor took place in Hawaii, with one in fifty believing it happened in Britain.

Three in ten had no idea the Blitz was a World War Two event, while 32 per cent didn’t know VE Day marks ‘Victory in Europe’ at the end of war.

But despite being widely recognised as the battle that ended the second world war, more than six in ten couldn’t name 1944 as the year D-Day took place.

Others believe the Battle of the Somme, the Treaty of Versailles and even the sinking of the Titanic were events which took place during the second world war.

Around one in six were also left stumped by the dates of the second world war, which started in 1939 and ended in 1945.

In order to understand the present it is essential to understand the past. I despair at what is being taught to our children these days if they have no knowledge of the events of the 20th century. To suggest that Germany and Britain were on the same side is an act of such appalling ignorance as to beggar belief and to nullify the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands of our forefathers who fought to keep this country free of the tyranny of Nazi Germany and the ruthless dictatorship of Japan.

Of course the cynical amongst us might wonder whether such a propaganda victory and dumbing down of history could in any way be attributed to the political correctness that dictates we must not offend our friends in the EU – those same friends in Berlin that want to screw us for having the audacity to leave their sphere of influence; the Fourth Reich in all but name.

If a deep rumbling is heard across the country tonight, it will be thousands of betrayed soldiers, sailors and airmen turning in their graves.

We should be deeply ashamed…

The ‘C’ word…

I hate to have to mention it – especially as we have yet to even get as far as Halloween – but the dreaded Christmas is approaching.

The other day I was walking home from the theatre past one of our local hostelries that had a big sign outside saying “It’s never too early! Book your Christmas party now!” Then the local chip wrappings were pushed through the door containing several Christmas catalog inserts that went straight into the bin.

And to add insult to injury, I’m getting emails from grocery stores on a daily basis urging me to book my slot now for Christmas grocery deliveries.

October is, of course, the time of year when the books, DVDs and CDs all come out. You know, those compilation albums of artists like Elvis Presley put together to milk the back catalog for every penny it’s worth. And the endless stream of celeb autobiographies written by people about whom, frankly, you either couldn’t give a fuck or of whom you’ve never heard. And all because they’re the perfect gift for your ageing Mum and Dad – who hate them and sell them on eBay in January…

Anyhow, this year my mate Chas and I couldn’t see any reason not to jump on the bandwagon. For several years now we’ve been collaborating on the Dioclese Christmas Song and – guess what? – there’s enough for an alternative Christmas album just for people who fucking hate the festive season.

It’s guaranteed to offend absolutely everybody who loves Christmas music. Should sell like hot cakes. We uploaded it this morning so watch out for it on Amazon and iTunes etc or stream it on Spotify. Should appear during the coming week with any luck.

After all, everyone else cashes in, so why shouldn’t we?..

Guy Verhofstadt

So Brexit is a ‘waste of time’ according to Guy Verhofstadt. He demands – demands mind you – that Britain must pay for leaving the EU. Who the hell does does this gappy toothed Ken Dodd lookalike think he is?

Well, apparently, he’s the former Prime Minister of Belgium. Belgium FFS! I mean, really? Belgium?

Just watch this video because it tells you all you really need to know about Belgium, the Third Reich’s fast track route to France and now it seems the Fourth Reich’s fast track route to Britain.

Belgium. I mean, who cares?..

Brexitballs

An occasional series highlighting people talking bollocks about Brexit.

Guy Verhofstadt
”Brexit is a dictatorship of the majority” – look up the definition of democracy ‘Mr President’

Emmanuael Macron
“After they have implemented my reforms, the UK will want to stay in the EU” – Call me Dave…

Donald Tusk
“The British accept that cake and eat it is no longer an option” – Now we just need the EU to do the same?

Jean Claude Juncker
“Miracles are need to make progress on Brexit” – Especially on the EU side

EU ‘sources’
“Northern Ireland can stay in the single market and customs union even if the rest of the UK leaves”

“The UK will adopt the Euro when the circumstances are right”

Nick Clegg
“I’m just saying look at the demography. The oldest voters voted for Brexit in the largest numbers, the younger voters did the opposite” – so we just wait for the Leavers to die off.

Nick Clegg
“You cannot end austerity if you don’t end Brexit” – Well you certainly can’t end it without Brexit
