the idea of the bullshit thread was a sound one; collect
all of, you know, this thing, over here, in one thread,
rather than make 20 threads or derail a current thread. my
contempt for diamond ice melt is genuine, to the point where
i feel they really don't deserve their own thread. amazon
deserves their own thread; that regularly refreshes itself
despite my best attempts to be careful on there

so, first up:

* people are not posing here enough


* i have only made, like, two or three threads in the last
week but so few people are posting that it looks like some
quip someone made has come true, "in the end xltronic will
just be a long stream of epicmegatrax"
* * it mostly annoys me because that was something someone
said about the end days of xlt, back when i was
posting too many threads, and now i'm not, and it's still
wound up looking that way
* * * plz post

upfront: this is basically my fault for being too lazy to
get a new car.

instacart. instacarp. instacrap

getting groceries delivered through instacarp could be
vastly superior if their app were not a flaming pile of

i desperately want some checkbox that says "DO NOT REPLACE
ANYTHING EVER" because 9/10 times, i do not want whatever
they replace it with. instead, i have to sit there and
babysit the app for the whole time, so i can press "other
options" scroll down through a giant list of shit, and
finally hit the (likely deliberately) buried "refund"

today, i massively struck out. either the store was looted
or this husband and wife team really, thoroughly blew
proverbial goats -- it's just this long streak of "replaced
with [shit i don't want]" and i have to repeat the stupid
bee waltz described in the paragraph above.

instacarp will let you specify replacement preferences
upfront, but only between when you've placed the order
and one of their 'contractors' has accepted the order

and after that, no, you can't, no choice, sorry, babysit the
app. even after doing this for the items i could in the time
window, they still replaced something i told them not to
did i mention it also doesn't seem
possible to pick which store and both stores tend of
to have different stuff? no? ok.

the fifth or six thing, my giant fingers (hi mo) mash a
wrong button, and i am literally cussing aloud, it's some
$14 salmon thing, and i fucking hate salmon. so i fire up
chat and ask them to refund it and the guy says "ok"

order arrives, a whole 2/3 of what i ordered, and indeed,
the salmon thing is not there. but it's still on my bill.
it's obvious: they were just like "yeah cool let's just keep
this and have it for dinner tonight" and now i have to file
a dispute with the app; perhaps never use it again.

but, no, laziness will win out. i really need to get another
