OK, I actually put this in Dear Diary first, but I think it's so classic, it deserves its own page.

Dear Diary

15/11/07

I've just had one of the more heated and amusing IM conversation with crazy. He's been wasting his money on buying more frivolous stuff, this time an Apple keyboard he ordered. Starts off like this:

John Morton says (2:17 pm):
you rate eBuyer? they've gone and f*cked up my wireless kb delivery... then they never contact you if there's an issue with your order (by any means) - and now they've deleted my order
John Morton says (2:17 pm):
and now there are 26 callers ahead of mine..
John Morton says (2:17 pm):
these guys are sh*t... and they're not the cheapest out there..
John Morton says (2:17 pm):
grr.

This goes on for a bit back and forwards, with me saying stuff like:

Tony says (2:20 pm):
have you checked your junk email folder for an email from them telling you that you forgot to enter a delivery address or something?
John Morton says (2:20 pm):
can't go back - purged them all - but i do scan them etc

bear with me here... keep reading...

Tony says (2:24 pm):
I get email telling me when they've dispatched items, with a tracking link in the email
John Morton says (2:24 pm):
i think i wound up the b*tch who was processing things and i bet she maliciously deleted it..
Tony says (2:24 pm):
be surprised if they don't send an email if there's a problem!
John Morton says (2:25 pm)
the dick i just rang couldn't do / see f*ck all either..
Tony says (2:25 pm):
you get payment processed email?
John Morton says (2:25 pm):
couldn't see a failed attempt to charge my MasterCard 39.99
John Morton says (2:25 pm):
either..
John Morton says (2:25 pm):
f*cking tools..
John Morton says (2:25 pm):
first it was out of stock for months - and then the issue around the payment - and then i have to check back to find it'd been completely removed..
John Morton says (2:25 pm):
w*nkers...

Of course, knowing Crazy, I said:

Tony says (2:26 pm):
well, I think you've set up your contact details incorrectly then
John Morton says (2:26 pm):
nope
Tony says (2:26 pm):
I've found that ebuyer send out email every step of the way
John Morton says (2:26 pm):
double checked them just now..
John Morton says (2:27 pm):
they had their chance
Tony says (2:27 pm):
I think you've just de ticked some notification box

OK. Fair enough. His contact details where all correct. I couldn't think of anything else he might've done wrong. I gave up and even started questioning my own use of eBuyer.com

Then Finally, I got this, the moment you've all been waiting for:

John Morton says (2:52 pm):
want to hear the funniest thing all day then?
Tony says (2:52 pm):
go on
John Morton says (2:52 pm):
it'll make me look like a tool though...
Tony says (2:52 pm):
what did you do wrong when ordering...
John Morton says (2:53 pm):
it turns out - my workmate has just reminded me that PLAY.com are in the process of 'packing' my keyboard at the moment...
Tony says (2:53 pm):
hahahahhahahhahah
Tony says (2:53 pm):jajajjajahahasdfhasdhfjcvxnhahahhahhahhaha
Tony says (2:53 pm):
oh john, john, john
John Morton says (2:53 pm):
damn funny...
John Morton says (2:53 pm):
i am SUCH a tool.
Tony says (2:53 pm):
yeah, those vindictive ebuyer c*nts deserved all the shiit from you alright
John Morton says (2:54 pm):
exactly! and i got an apology out of them as well...
John Morton says (2:54 pm):
fuck 'em - i'm sure they're wronged me in the past or will in the future..
Tony says (2:54 pm):
well, you've convinced me not to use ebuyer ever again
Tony says (2:54 pm):
damn, that's some funny shiit
John Morton says (2:55 pm):
cerainly is
John Morton says (2:55 pm):
hah
John Morton says (2:55 pm):
lol

And there we go. Just another day in the life of being a close mate of Crazy's.

John, don't ever change :-)
