Couriers messes

[EDITED ON 01.30] New Amazon shipment....same courier, same near-mess - courier put the items in the mailbox without ringing, thank God I learned from experience so I didn't open a replacement order; I wish Amazon would stop using that sh*tty piece-of-crap courier, there's plenty of much better ones. v_v [/EDITED]

I’m talking about a specific italian courier (*cough*GLS Italy*cough*), who is pretty famed for having an absolutely abysmal service - they lose a lot of packages, their shipments are always late, they don’t ring the doorbell just leaving the pick-up notice in the mailbox (I was home and saw this from the camera on my gate), and much more. This time they topped (more like bottomed) themselves, though.

I had been expecting an Amazon UK package (containing one DVD and one book), set to arrive tomorrow; when I woke up today at 10:30 am the items were listed as delivered into my hands at 9:30 am....except I never saw the courier and neither did my parents. So, a chat session with Amazon’s Customer Care ensued to see where was my order and have the items resent - Amazon went further and refunded me the shipping fee; this afternoon, while collecting ours and my aunt’s mail, I found out courier had put the package in my aunt’s mailbox (whose house is right beside mine, but still the wrong street number)...without ringing any doorbell. I’m sure of that because I spoke with my aunt to get the shipment and she said she had been home all morning and nobody had rang at her door. After this, more chats with Amazon ensued to get the replacement order canceled - which hasn’t yet, and the items have even been dispatched....a fu*king overall mess and a huge pain in the arse.
This is not the first time that courier messes up my Amazon orders (on both UK and Italy stores), and I’ve complained every time - and I bet I’m one among thousands, consider how sh*tty the courier is - but so far Amazon keeps using it; let’s hope they finally get the hint and strike it off their list.

Sorry for the rant, but this was the last straw in a series of fu*k-ups made by that courier and I needed to vent.
See you on next entry; many cheers. XOXO

Hosts’ shadiness

I’m talking about all those practices walking the line between legal and illegal used by (usually) shady providers.
I’ve tried to avoid that kind of hosts who use those kind of methods of plague, but sometimes you realize even the (supposedly) reliable ones try to cut corners by doing that....as I learned on my skin with my main italian registrar.

I have around 15-20 domains registered with this registrar and, since I started using their service, I’ve been drowning in phone calls from financial trading and/or consulting firms; I link this to that registrar because the stream of calls happens and starts a few days after registering a tld with that provider. It has happened with every single domain I’ve registered with that host....hard (I say impossible) not to think the two things are connected.
Since I’m pessimistic, sometimes I’ve arrived to think my italian registrar is the one passing data to this phone spammers. I know it is not like that, still, since the data get somehow leaked online, it’s pretty darn clear the host’s security is downright sh*tty at the very least.

Sorry for the rant, but I just got off the phone with one of the aforementioned spammers - many of them have the gall to say I emailed them asking for info, which I never did (as if!) - and I needed to let it out.
See you next time; many cheers. XOXO
