It is confirmed all the Dutch are mad, it is bred into them from a very young age.

How quickly does new technology become ancient history ...

Standing in line at the car park Pay & Display machine, the guy in front looked confused and puzzled.

His passenger called across: "Should I pay by phone?". He turned to me: "Do you know how this thing works?"

"Put coins in the slot, then press the green button?", I suggested.

He got the coins into the slot OK, but then pressed the green blob on the instruction panel ...

To be fair, that machine has been standing out in all weathers for so many years that most of the green has worn off the 'OK' button, and it's nearly black.

Another example of Amazon customer service at it's "finest":
Dad furious after Amazon send him dog food instead of £1,200 laptop
He placed his order on November 29 and paid for next-day delivery.

But when he opened up the package he couldn’t believe the mix up.

He said: ‘You can imagine the look on my face when I opened dog food instead of a MacBook Pro that cost me over £1,000.

‘At first I was confident the mix-up could be resolved, but after speaking to Amazon customer service, they said they couldn’t help me.

‘That was unless I returned the laptop, which I never received, and even when I sent the dog food back to the warehouse, that made no difference.

On this side of the pond, a story like that would raise concerns about the package being intercepted between Amazon and purchaser, and the contents replaced.

In other words, it's more likely that a rogue van driver and his mates are enjoying the laptop, rather than any Amazon employee. It would still be Amazon's job to sort out the mess, though.

No, on the other side of the pond, Amazon has the exact same attitude: "you got the right item according to us, if you want to get your money back, return the item not whatever you claim to have received"

Epic Games has free full PC games downloads this week (?)
You can claim the game, download it and even after it's gone to (full) price again, your copy will always be yours.

Yesterday was Metro Last Light Redux. Today is Death Stranding (which I didn't know was out on PC).

We recommend avoiding general and often dehumanizing “the” labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated. Instead, use wording such as people with mental illnesses. And use these descriptions only when clearly relevant.

Yes, let's dehumanize the word "the".

Looks like they have removed the post. When I try to load that link Twitter say >"Hmm...this page doesn’t exist. Try searching for something else"
