I myself tried to scoop up water from sinking boat that had merge into the sea. To my defense, if you do it fast enough, there is still hope.

I'm not much of a boat person myself (more of a hobbit), but even I have heard of bailing, so it seems to be a perfectly respectable thing to do.

Have you guys ever, been soooo annoyed with other's stupidity and feel the helplessness to reason with them and just let them take your money as the result?

In my area, it is cheaper to put your clothes in the laundry than do it yourself. We don't have DIY public laundry. To look for good one though, it's always a struggle. Sometimes they mess up your cloth, sometime they lost it, sometimes they didn't do a good job. I have been going to the same one as long as I am here, but because I moved away, it's quite a distance so I want to look for nearer one. I decided to give this one (tried before but they lost my shirt so I dropped them) another try. First couple of wash, it was good, they are quick (ready the day after), and then they started to mess up.

The minimum load you can put is 2 kg, which is fine. That is around the amount I bring anyway. They gave me wrong information initially (that there is no minimum) but revised it later when I didn't bring enough, (so they charged me 2kg price even when I bring less) which is fine, I get that. Then there was one time when I noticed that I only bring 1.5kg, but when I left (they sent the receipt to the phone, which I normally left in the car so I didn't check on the spot) but they noted it down as 2.5kg. I asked them if they got it right, because I remembered seeing 1.5 when they weighted it. They insisted it was correct. So nevermind, I even said sorry I must have seen it wrongly then. I have no idea how many time it actually happened, but I remember this one well.

And it happened again, this time I was pretty sure it was 1,7 kg, so when I saw they put 2.7kg in the receipt, I went back (I barely left the area yet anyway) and asked them. And they told me, yes, because the minimum weight is 2 kg. I said fine, then put it as 2 kg since I have 1.7kg right.

They said yes, but since 2kg is minimum, they have to add it up. I was trying to hold back my disbelief, I said, sure, I understand. But why do you put it as 2.7 kg instead of 2? They looked at me blankly then repeated the same thing. I repeated too, getting really irritated, especially now I know they did the same thing back then and made me feel I was the one making a mistake. So apparently their brilliant solution is just to add another kg if you don't meet minimum account.

The thing is, they have multiple staffs and these two I encountered are not the one in charge (the one in charge was very clear about everything including how the minimum is counted, and she also assured me that they always finish their order in a day although the other staff likes to give wrong information to the customers (maybe so that they can stretch the work)). 

Anyway, it's obvious that I was irritated that they can't give me logical explanation but still insisted on their reason. So they said they can't change the receipt because it had been sent to the 'boss' but would give me a 'discount' when it's collection time. I believed none of that but I had no energy left, obviously they looked at me as 'difficult' customer as well. The day after, my family happened to go that area and helped me collected it,  my instruction was clear: I am 100% sure they wouldn't hold on to their word and would still overcharge me, if you don't feel that you have energy to question them then leave them be. I don't want this stupidity to ruin their day. Sure enough, they didn't bother with overcharging, but when my family bothered enough to ask, they said, oh, this is express service, it is more expensive so it cost twice. (It's SO does not add up, brilliant mathematician liar &^!&$@!$^).

The thing that trigger my anger the most is, when people try to cover their mistake by adding a lie or ridiculous reasons. I have met too many of this breed. So yah, of course I am not coming back and no, I wouldn't bother to report or complain, it's not worth the time. I'm not that bothered about the money they 'cheated' either, I'm just.. arghhhh,, if you get what I mean.

For a moment there I thought this was going to be about the current American "leadership."

And yes, I do know what you mean. Some wrongs aren't worth the effort it takes to right them. 😞

Oh that one belongs in Political Thread or ducky would scol...whac.. no, she would let you know nicely, which I agree, since this thread is dedicated more to things we can't really explain, such as:

I always thought the hair style's name is inspired from horse's tail, it seems like I got it in reverse all this time.
