Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Boycott the bastards.

Here's the story.

I had amazing seats to see Modest Mouse. Just amazing. Then a week ago, ticketmaster emails me to say, they've changed venues to a shitter but bigger place and that my amazing tickets won't be honored there. Everything will be reinbursed except the conveince charge (of course). So, I panic. I immediately get tickets to the new place, and for some reason everything was taken except for the crappy balcony. Same exact price though, so I'm like fuck it. THEN, the next day Nicole gets an email saying, oops, our bad your old tickets will be excepted. Do nothing. So, of course I feel scammed. I call Ticketmaster to complain, to get my 5 dollars back because it's the right thing for them to do since it was their mistake to send an email misinforming me too soon. I talked to 5 different people, who all told me the same thing. Sorry for your misfortune, but that conveience charge is nonrefundable no matter what. So, I'm like, I know it's nonrefundable, but you're telling me that a billion dollar company like Ticketmaster can't fork over the 5 bucks they should give me for your mistake. And all of them said no. I was surprisingly calm throughout all these conversations, but at the end I told them they lost a customer because of this. I thought I was being quite fair. It was their mistake, so they should have reinbursed me. But nooooooo. The greedy fucks at Ticketmaster want to take you for everything you're worth. I hate them. And you should too. The end.

As for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Save your money. I couldn't believe it got such good reviews. It was trying way too hard. Felt like it was supposed to be a Monty Python movie, but was more like a crappy movie based on a good book. Ho hum. At least Star Wars was pretty good. Oh, and I sorta got a tan!

I'm out.

Reminds me of why I'm not going to be on Verizon once my "contract" is up with them. Lame.

If ticketmaster had eyes, I think I'd enjoy clawing them out.

So, do we now have 6 tickets to Modest Mouse? Maybe we can get someone to take the crappy balcony ones...

Old tickets will be excepted? What is it that you do for a living again?
