Goddamn US Postal Service… 16 September 2007, Sunday

So to add insult to injury, I sent a Scrapyard Scrapper 6 to a fellow in the Bronx on the 5th via Priority Mail.

It still hasn’t arrived.

And of course, this is the first one that I failed to add a delivery confirmation service to, even though I bought insurance.

Why didn’t I get delivery confirmation?

BECAUSE THEIR FUCKING KIOSK HAS A FUCKED UP PROCESS FLOW AND DOESN’T LET YOU ADD DC AND INSURANCE AT THE SAME TIME.

Someone deserves to be fired for their ridiculous interface design. It only has one exception flow for adding additional services. If you buy insurance, you can’t buy delivery confirmation. If you buy delivery confirmation, you can’t buy insurance.

Of course, the business process doesn’t preclude this — you can get both if you get your stamp online or at the walk-up desk… just not at the little kiosk.

What does this mean?

I’m not going to get reimbursed, even though the USPS lost it, since I “can’t prove it”.

Fucking dipshits.

Anyhow, if you see a Scrapper 6 with a Penetrator tip ground into the front, it’s probably stolen. I put the tip in custom, and I don’t think anyone else has done it like that.

I think you should explain your interest in a “Scrapyard Scrapper 6.” Are you in a people’s militia? Are you a conspiracy theorist? If neither of those apply, you should elaborate.

I use it for food prep.

Some of those tomatoes are mighty tough and require some serious chopping power.
