I'm fucking done with all these online systems that prioritize fancy shit over functionality. I ordered two fleet enemas, a pack of lubes, and some medication online because "somehow" I guess people are experimenting with those due to the pandemic and they are always out of stock. Weird boredom but okay.

So this site gave me two options - deliver it straight to my door or deliver it to the nearby pharmacy. I thought, "Wow, how convenient." Home deliveries aren't allowed anyway, might as well pick it up from the store that's always open instead of getting my door dick-banged by the security guard in an inconvenient time.

I chose the "deliver to the nearby pharmacy" option and they gave me a map where I would enter my zip code and it will search for it. I entered my zip code, didn't work. Entered my street address, didn't work. I zoomed into the fucking map and manually tried to point to the pharmacy's location. It's right there! I clicked it.

"ERROR. Please select the store."

Clicked it again.

"ERROR. Please select the store."

Again and again and again. I gave up and chose home delivery. Who the fuck developed this shit? Why would you put an option that doesn't work? The time you spent making it fancy should have been spent actually making it work. Give me a list of branches, I'll be happy to go through it and select the store. Hell, I'll give you the coordinates of the store. Not the most efficient way but at least it works.

How much time of our lives have been wasted to the promise of "convenience" only to get disappointed in the dumbest way possible? It's a small thing but damn, it's so small, it shouldn't even exist. That's what she said.

    TIL breaking into @rutee07's home will involve neutralizing a security guard.

    Mostly a story of my life there..

    I was arguing, or is it called debate with someone earlier about this..

    (Incidently, its snowing outside..)

    Place this person works in has that kind of system, only its been like that for 30+ years and when I suggest they fix it, I get answers like this:

    ----------------

    I looked at this, it is not trivial. Given that it doesn't really cause a problem when ***** is being used in the normal way, because ***** does get information about *****, and ***** do tend to make **** only, I'm not going to fix this.

    ---------------

    Later on, in a discussion about other companies not fixing things, they said:

    --------------

    Perhaps the only way is a complete

    re-design. Perhaps that is not considered financially viable.

    --------------

    When is it never financially viable to make something work so you can get customers !

    If it works, existing customers will stay, and new customers will use it !

    Now I bought a pack of biscuits. When I got to the cashier, she said, "Sorry, this is not available yet. It just arrived and it's not on the server yet."

    Why the hell is it in the shelf then? Doesn't that mean it's available? It's right there! Don't put it there unless it's for sale. Jesus Christ.

    I really want to know what this is:

    > two fleet enemas

    Is that like a Jumbo sized version ?

    @Nanos It's a brand of enema. I should have capitalized "Fleet" but it's such a popular product, they go straight to it when it comes to enemas.

    I still laugh when my mum tells me about the number of folk she had to deal with who would try to swallow them..

    @Nanos Swallow enemas? What? Why?

    @rutee07

    This bit caught my eye from the website:

    -------

    Directions

    Adult: 1 enema rectally daily; may be used up to 7 days. Results usually within 1–5mins; re-evaluate if no relief after 7 days.

    -------

    Relief from what ?

    They don't say what they do..

    "I'd like to buy an EV please, but tell me, what does it do.."

    @Nanos To clear out your bowels if you're constipated, shouldn't be doing it often though. People also use it to prepare for anal sex so you don't get chocolate dick but the Egyptians have been doing it for a long time.

    @rutee07 I was about to say just drink water for constipation issues. But instead I learned something new today. :D

    @rutee07

    I know someone with that issue, I'll pass on the advice !

    The constipation issue that is. :-)

    @iamai

    Do you think someone is more likely to suffer from that if they don't eat much ?
  • 1
    @Nanos yes, it works. When I started drinking 2 to 4 glasses per meal I don't get constipation anymore and can do number 2 on a daily basis. Water therapy is good for the skin too.

    I just found out they fixed their lack of pooing by eating crystallised ginger.

    @iamai I drink lots of water. I empty five gallons of water in only take 2-3 days. Sweet potatoes, beans, and whole wheat bread are good too, as well as sienna tea.

    But yeah, it's more for the anal part. :D
