Why do appliance manufacturers put plastic protective sheets under panels? How are you supposed to get it off?

Is it too much to ask that stores should provide the same number of return shipping labels as the number of packages that the order shipped in?

True story of two returns that I had to make this week:

One was an Amazon order of 2 items which had shipped together in 1 box, but for some reason, when I filed the return online it gave me two separate return labels. Now I needed to find a second box to use for the return. Didn't have one, so I had to wait for another order to come so I could use that box.

The second return was for an order from another store. The order was shipped in two separate boxes, but when I filed the return online, it gave me one return label for the whole order. Now I needed to find one (very large) box to fit the whole order. Ended up having to combine two boxes with lots of tape to make one big box.

(And no, the extra box from the second order wasn't big enough to solve my problem for the first order)

Did you ask them to consolidate/ split? Sometimes you can be successful changing returns by chatting

And I've heard sometimes from repa to put both labels on the box, although that sounds like bad advice

Put the second label inside the box.  so they can scan it.  But it gets scanned when they open the box,  not upon arrival at Amazon like the outer label is scanned.

I would worry that they might miss it

I could've, but didn't really want to spend the time doing it. I'd rather spend that time writing a rant on ddf.

An amazon chat rep once told me to do that, but then I didn't get a refund for the second item. I had to fight for it a bit, as they had no record that it was received.

Did you wait a bit? The outer box label gets scanned when it reaches Amazon, but the inner one gets scanned when they actually open the box and unpack it.

No. Maybe I would've been better off waiting. have you done this successfully a few times?

people whose seder is to post something in a thread


then realize zeomthing was missing

so post again 30 seconds later.

then realize they made a mistake in one of their posts, so they make another one to fix or change or clarify it, instead of going back and editing the original post, or maybe even reading through their own message before hitting post. it's not the typos which bother me, it's the lack of clarity and coherence.

so you end up with 6 messages ending in *something

Encountered often in my profession. Ctrl-H (Find and replace) two spaces for one space and rinse and repeat until they are all gone.

Websites with a "remember me" checkbox that still make you sign in again each time. Bonus points if they also want to email/text a code each time.
