I took this photo when the front first came speeding in. The eel colored sky and swirling cloud motion was just too...too.
Bear with me, 'cause there's a point....
This morning I removed the Gift Certificate button from this blog. I am going to tell you the why of it while smacking myself in the head with the stupid stick.
Over the weekend someone purchased a Gift Certificate from that button as a birthday present. And y'all it has proven all but impossible for the recipient to redeem it. And when I say all but impossible what I mean is I have been on the phone with Paypal every day this week. She has been on the phone with Paypal every day this week.
One would think it would be a simple process to redeem said gift certificate, no? Trust. The answer to that question is a resounding No. Soooo, let's try creating a direct link to be sent in email to make the process smoother. Okay then. Let's do that. Did it work? Again a resounding no. Maybe we should attack it from the giftee's angle?....
Sign in with this email address and go to that page to enter this code on that line in this font and do all this while simultaneously jumping up and down on your hands and singing the Bavarian National Anthem with your eyes crossed.
Did that work?
Uh Uh. That payment remains afloat in noman'smoneyland. I don't know about you, but I don't like it when someone messes with my money. No I don't.
I'm pretty comfortable speaking for the birthday girl when I say she is also less than thrilled.
Which brings me to the second photo I took during last week's storm. See the giant foot complete with toes on the right side of the pic?
How about now?
Let's just say I'd like to aim that foot
at a certain part of Paypal's anatomy.
At least I didn't say ass.
