This all makes sense now... grumpy :p
FUCK THIS HURRICANE!
Don't forget to think of those in India, who are also suffering
Let me rephrase... FUCK MOTHER NATURE'S WRATH!
SB you really outdid yourself with how nasty people can get over a toy.
Just briefly, I'm broke and you're not if you can pay hundreds of dollars for a toy. It's a hobby and thus a market economy of rarity.
I didn't think this was eBay, but so many of you did. I get that. The thing became a nightmare to deal with people (from Asia especially) were I was bending over to get them the thing. It didn't work out and then I end up being the bad guy for saving myself the trouble of dealing with your countries shitty customs and making ends meet by another month because some other rich person offered me the simpler solution.
I've tried helping folk here and folk have helped me. It's when y'all get entitled to some plastic thing from some hype brand that I really, really see how people lose sight of this place.
So yeah FU SB for making that nasty side come up in all of us.
And this is not directed at anyone in particular. It's actually mostly for me, for also losing sight and trying to make things work.
Sorry to hear that man. I feel that you were more than generous, and could have taken this elsewhere for a nice cash-in. It sucks when people get burned for doing a nice thing.
We worked it out. Communication is key, but we certainly had to try and see eye to eye.
I think we're just bummed about how easily these things can get the best of us. Live and learn. Everyone is as ok as they will be now.
Sorry to hear about all your respective woes, SB; things really are tough all over sometimes.
@Headhunter/@noeleaser Customers, eh? Probably hasn't ever changed since the dawn of trade.
@Herr Graves Very sorry for your losses. It is not something that ever gets any easier, and as Robert said, I think that basic emotion of loss is something we can all relate to, no matter our varied background.
@Lixx Hope the infection clears up and they can get your wound sorted very soon. Unfortunately situations like this show you just how fragile and delicate the human body is, despite what one often thinks of the great advances in modern medicine.
@hellointerloper Glad to hear that you were able to work things out Maddie, and that you won't have to go through the move now. Communication really is key, in all aspects of life. It's easy to forget, and simple misunderstandings can spiral out of control, I think we all have to try and remind ourselves of that from time to time. In dealing with lots of different people, particularly those who are coming from a different place than you might be, you really need to try and listen and see things from their point of view as well. [Not directed at you I mean, general advice for everyone]. It certainly isn't always easy, but it might be surprising how many of the world's issues could be [move closer to being] resolved by simple acts of open dialogue and understanding.
Respect Mother Natures Wrath. She can make a person feel so very small.
This is a BIG FUAH YOUUUUU! Fuck the person who broke into my wife's car this evening and wiped the slate clean that was my entire Paul Kaiju collection! A small one as it was but I was ever so grateful for each piece! 1.My dual mock bat from the most recent monstrosities event at my plastic heart! 2. My first quateroid, the ones from Five points! 3. Also my second quateroid, the most recent release painted and sold by Bwanaspoons (also my first piece by Bwana!) And last but most certainly not least 4. The latest Hyper Kraken!!!! The one I just grabbed yesterday at deaths vault!!
Idk sorry just venting, trying to get some pictures of everything I lost so I can post a pic on Instagram tomorrow morning asking people to keep the ears and eyes open.
Sincerely fucked in a funk
Damn, that's super fucked up.
I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to you.
Were you parked near a storefront? If so I'd try to see if there were any cameras in the area that might have caught the whole ordeal.
Man, that is a major downer. Sorry to hear about that.
Probably an annoying question, but were the toys visible from outside the car? Or did they break in for something else?
I wonder if the thieves have any idea what the toys actually are, and how much they are worth . . .
Yeah unfortunately @FUREEK it was in the way back of an elementary school under a street lamp. But no one seen a thing. And I asked the very polite rookie cop they said "That bags probably in the trash somewhere." And "if there is cameras they probably were not on." And no @The Moog i had actually fit it all inside a backpack and they just grabbed the pack (and my wife's MK purse, but not the wallet cause that was in the front seat) and ran I guess. But when they grabbed it right under the bag was two very visible kumon and two four fucking fingers also a bag of calm cats! Lol so I could've lost a lot more. So no I don't think they knew but I was thinking about it this morning that their names are on the bottoms of their feet so if they are smart they can find out some info.
Damn man, that was unlucky timing having it all in the car. I would like to think the pieces you lost are rare
and unusual enough that it would be noticeable if they popped-up on ebay or whatever . . .
If you could get this to the right people in the toy world they may be able to put the word out perhaps?
Do you think Death's Vault or PK himself would be able to help in some way?
I was just gonna say what @The Moog mentioned about keeping an eye on eBay with the addition of perhaps checking the surrounding pawn shops.
Yeah idk I don't want to bother already bust people. Maybe it'll come up or like the cops said there in the trash. @The Moog @FUREEK thanks for the advice.
Ugh. It's a long shot but you could throw on your worst clothes and go dumpster diving around the vicinity (in addition to the other stuff I mentioned on IG).
This news is so fucked. Feel really bad for you man. Def grab the best pics you can of the one-offs and start a seperate thread here for maximum exposure. Post and post again on IG. Hoping for the best in this shitty situation @Grindingmachete
Thanks man yeah I was just in all sorts of places today looking! Dumpers, trash cans, private property, under neath a bridge, stopped by one pawn shop that was down the street "we don't buy toys" that had a top shelf full of brand new barbies! "They've been there for years, we don't buy them anymore" fuck off!!!! Stopped by the flea market also not too far away, closed? Idk maybe I can print out some flyers? Lol idk if it's worth it. But thanks @smurph
A great big F@CK YOU TO HURRICANE IRMA and the lives you've taken, subsequently ruined, and so much more. Leaving in your tempestuous wake countless people with no electricity, potable water, gas, or food. What is this the dark ages! They even have food and water in Third World countries
You took my best friend away 20 years ago today..
Ok I'm down. Fuck my job. Fuck my boss and the office manager for doing everything they can to make communication and training difficult for me. Fuck the company for being so lazy and short sighted. Mainly fuck the fair. Fuck all you people coming to the state fair with out any sense of common decency. Fuck all of it. I'm already ready to find a new job.
@coma21 Better and brighter days are coming!
As Beautiful as you are, you are still one uncaring, unsympathetic bich. I understand you more than ever; I don't shed a tear for the baby bunnies feeding coyotes or curse you for hurricanes, but when the "random" falls on the ones you love and the most innocent , be it beast or man, and you're forced to watch them spill their guts for hours as they die slowly... and slowly..., it is ever presently clear how it can never be too cruel for you. Suffering, TRUE suffering, is proof that there's no blessed, only the lucky.
RIP George the cockatiel. Your conure sister and I will miss you a lot. Over the last couple of years, I hope we made you forget the first part of your life and whatever scumbag crippled you... I hate that I didn't help you move on sooner...
Nature is as nature does, but that doesn't mean it gets any easier in these situations. People who abuse little animals tho.. Come see me. I may be a weak sick cripple too, but I'll powerchair your ass into the dirt.
Edit: Lightened it up just a tad now that I've calmed down some. Hashbrown - emotions in the ocean.
Why would you ever leave expensive as hell toys like that in a car in the first place? Im not being insensitive its just a legitimate question. I honestly feel your pain though. I had my fucking bicycle stolen one time at a fucking public library bike rack but it was my fault for not having a bike chain on it at the time.
Yeah I mean it's my fault it's just I like taking photos in providence and so I had them with me. And the thing is I'm not going to stop. That's why I'm saying it is what it is. I'm not calling for pity. I was only using this fuck you thread to vent. But realistically I hope who ever grabbed them is enjoying them. I just can't imagine them in the trash or by now the Johnston landfill (Rhode Islands dumping ground)
