Fallout 4 is announced, they offer a PipBoy Edition which comes with a real PipBoy you can use with your smartphone. The Preorde offers didn't last a half hour and were gone, everybody is hunting for that.
Me too, i got the problem, i got none, still refreshing to hope someone cancels his order or they stock up.
True 1st World problems... but this time i'm affected
if(this.signature != "")
MessageBox.Show("This is my signature: " + Environment.NewLine + signature);
MessageBox.Show("404-Signature not found");
It's annoying, isn't it? Lots of companies do this these days. Nintendo with Amiibo, Funko with store exclusive Pops (my weakness,) etc... And it really makes no sense, from a business perspective.
I'll reference Boogie2988's argument here, which I completely agree with (great youtuber btw, and no, he isn't me...) All this really does is drive the secondary market, and make some wanker a hefty profit reselling it. You print X amount of something, knowing 5X-10X people will be drooling to get their hands on one... You're losing out on massive amounts of profit. I have cash in my hand, and you have a product I want. But you're telling me you sold out... That makes me unhappy, but makes you a farking moron.
And of course, there are those that like to argue that this is an 'entitlement' complex... Not really. Entitlement is when something isn't in short supply, and you want it just because. Here, the producer has imposed artificial scarcity into the market. Just take my money already!
I really can't be bothered today, some brilliant strategy has demoralised and angered most of the people working here.
Anyone want to spend the next twelve hours in a pub drinking beer, talking nonsense and playing pool, darts, shove ha'penny (haven't seen one of those boards for years, my mum and dad had one when we were kids, wonder what happened to it)?
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
Go to sunny California then. When I was out there everyone was ID'ed. On one memorable lunchtime, I was in a bar with some friends and my parents. The only one without photo id was my Dad; he'd left his passport in the hotel and only had an old green driving licence. I was early 30's and Dad just shy of 70, but he couldn't get a beer.
Of course, not one person gloated or made fun of the 'kid'.
At least for me this is a big question
A very big international company offered me to have an interview, and I would be very happy .... but it is quite far from my place; the option are:
-drive for 6 hours, have the interview and then drive back for other 6 hours, 200 euro
-take a plane, 3-4 hours per trip (connection delay), much more comfortable, 500 euro
By the way my monthly wage is around 2000 euro, so the costs could be important
The question is... in case I should opt for the plane, should I ask the company for a reimbursing policy or just take all the risk on my shoulders without mentioning the costs?
