So in further support of UrbanGuyTO’s comments that he made about his recent “surprise” cheap gear deal he got off of eBay. ((Released in Episode 058))
It seems I have been burnt by a Chinese vendor on Amazon.
Not that it is a really big deal, the item only cost me $5 and the shipping was free. It only took 6 months to get here. ((In fact I had even forgot that I had ordered it))
So what this little device does is when you turn it on, it projects the night sky up on your ceiling and walls.
My idea was that this would be cool to put out on the balcony this summer and project the stars up on the walls and roof of my balcony.
Well last night UrbanGuyTO went to the PO Box to pick up some packages that were waiting for us there. It was like Christmas all over again!
So last night I was opening packages and out comes the Star Master. Woohooo
I took it out of the box, plugged it in…..and NOTHING!
Put in the batteries….nothing!
So I started the process of requesting a return from the vendor through Amazon.
Of course they tried to “trouble shoot” the problem. First came the comment, “did you try other batteries?”
Really? That’s the first thing you do…even when you are a kid and your remote control car doesn’t work, you immediately try new batteries! ((Even if you dropped your remote control in a puddle and fried the electronics, you hope that it was just the batteries. Right?))
Next, the person on the other end asked me to send a photo of the problem!
How the fuck does one take a photo of a lamp that doesn’t work to prove it doesn’t work.
Does anyone else see my logic in thinking that is a super stupid question?
DID YOU KNOW????
95% of the items that we review, we pay for ourselves. Regardless, sometimes things don't go the way we plan them to go and when that happens we clean up the items really good and then put them up for sale in our shop at a deep discount for you to grab for yourself.
