Default The Rant Thread!

I hate some places and im going to tell you about them. you can tell me yours aswell...

So, I wanted to add my bank account to my Paypal. But when i registered (over a year ago) I was and still am paranoid about giving people my full name, so, I wrote; "Caleb P." But, when you add your bank account you need your full name, so i tryed to change it. When you change you name is asks if its major (being divorce or law) or minor (spelling mistake etc) so I chose minor.

Now, when I did that and completed my full name, it says "this is not a minor name change". So I did it again although selecting major this time. But, to change major you need proof. Now, my Proof was a package (from DX) and my drivers license.

But, careless enough, I forgot you need to be 18 to register at PayPal. I lied at registration ofcourse. So, after completing this, I came back the next day and realised I'd been banned for being underage. Im gonna kill you PayPal! I made another PayPal later that day, using my full name and adding my bank account. So far so good...



Next is my eBay story...

PayPal and ebay are money sucking thieves who are nothing less than scammers.

This is a pretty far fetched comparison, but PayPal are like Hitler. They were trying to create something good, but they were ruining something else in that process. Hitler was trying to create a "perfect city" but in the process killed millions of people. PayPal are trying to "protect the buyer" but in reality theyre stealing hundreds of people's money every hour.

How do I know this? I recently sold a $600 item online, a phone to be exact. Had nothing to do with ebay. I sent the phone, 2 days later a claim was made on the payment. I emailed the buyer, asking what was up. He didnt respond. His reasoning for making a claim: "sent me a package full of bricks". PayPal refunded him his money, and I was out of an iPhone and my money.

However, this person is now regretting this as I (hopefully) completely ruined his life. I got his local police involved, the federal police in his country (or some fraud division) and i rang up his local church (apparently hes really religious, after taking a close look at his myspace) and told the church of his sins.

TL;DR? Dont fuck with me.

I hate that too especially when they crank it up at the redlights > at least when I stop I turn my music way down so no one else is bothered by it, though on the highways and when I'm moving I blast it pretty loud : but no one else is bothered by it (i think) but I listen to classic rock and some times techno

They're not trying to help people, they know what they're doing. Don't even give them that.

Having to get a filling redone because it wasn't done right the first time. I haven't been able to chew with the right side of my mouth since I had it done a few weeks ago.

I was a weekly writer in 2 different e-zines, they hired me to rant.

Right now, I hate how over powered the chainsaw is in Gears of War 2. You can shoot a guy at point blank with a shotgun, and he'll blow up. However, if you shoot at a guy from point blank while he has his chainsaw revved, your shotgun blast is the equivalent of a weak push, and then your foe proceeds to chainsaw you. UTTER BULLS@#%!

yeah, well at eBay.
I put a bid on some glasses. i was winning at $0.99 and the shipping was $6 plus $1 for each additional item. So what the heck, il put a bid on another pair with $0.99.

well you know what, i won the auction for both of them, but when i went to pay it was still full shipping cost. So i messaged the guy, few days later i check ebay, no reply. I messaged him 2 more times and no reply.

So i just payed for the 1 pair, $7

but later i got a warning, i couldnt be screwed with ebay so i didnt bother to tell them.
Until

I put a bid on a shirt, i won it at auction.

but becuase paypal had banned me i had no money.
so i couldnt pay for it, i then got another message and i was banned from ebay.
i then wasnt even a member anymore but i could still log on. im happy for ebay to get rid of the fake bidders and wankers who are just testing or 'might' come up with the money (kinda like me, only kinda).

But WTF, its you F**ing fualt and there bugs in your Shi*tty little website tosser billionaires. >

Ebay fees are a f^cking rip-off. I was thinking about putting something on there in hopes of getting about $750 for it. With all the posting fees plus end of sale fees, I would've lost $40. > That's with a reserve and buy it now option. I don't understand how anybody can sell expensive stuff on there. I've thought about writing a nasty gram but it will only make me a low life a^^ hole just like them.

Paypal is just as bad with their fees. That is one reason I try to avoid selling stuff on Ebay and recieveing money through paypal.

I can understand have a fee on Ebay since they host a lot of pictures and stuff for all the auctions. I think it should be $2.50 max per listing. There is no reason Paypal should have stupid fees though. All they do is transfer money... You can transfer money between your own bank accounts for free if you have multiple banks. So why should you have to pay to recieve money from another users bank? > > >

It is a double hitter with PayPal and eBay fees... I sold a Wii on eBay for $250, I had owed $17.76 in eBay fees, than PayPal took $9 out of the transfer fees... $26 just to sell a Wii.
I could understand if your PayPal transaction wasn't due to using eBay (Such as 3rd party stores), or even generic transfers (No more than a couple dollars, it's transferring money in the same bank), but to get hit by high eBay taxes (They shouldn't be more than 5%) plus PayPal is just plain greedy.

Lol, this one dentist (that none of my family likes) looked at my teeth and told me I have a cavity. So we pay in advanced, and we go in to get it filled. Now the dentist I like is there. He looks at the x-ray, just before he fills it. He says "that's not a cavity, thats a shadow on the x-ray." >
