Hillbilly Mom Gripes Again
Does anyone else have issues with Amazon.com? Because
everything I get from them arrives like this. I used to think the
problem was with UPS (Unqualified People Shipping).
Anything that came by UPS was smashed. Most of it was from
Amazon. Today I got this Amazon box from the U.S. Postal
Service. What's up with that? It must be a problem within the
Do they use used boxes? Do they use gorillas to load the trucks?
Do they have a bunch of nosy factory workers who "inspect" each
box before it leaves? This is the worst package I ever got from
them. AND I even paid for shipping. No SuperSaver for me this
time! This is what my money brought me. It's an outrage, I tell you!
There was only one item, Superstud: Or How I Became a
24-Year-Old Virgin, by Paul Feig. I can't recommend it, because
I haven't read it yet. Duh! I just got it today after school. I am not
a speed reader. I do highly recommend his other book, Kick Me:
Adventures in Adolescence. I laughed, I cried, I loaned it to a
teaching buddy. The first chapter alone had me laughing until I cried.
Poor Paul, in his Christmas Elf costume. What were his parents
thinking? No wonder he was scarred for life. He's the guy who
wrote the ill-fated TV show Freaks and Geeks, which which
kickstarted the careers of Linda Cardellini, James Franco, Busy
Philipps, and Jason Segel.
Yes. I'm a geek. And sometimes I'm a freak. I have the Collector's
Edition DVDs of this series. It was based on the life of Paul Feig.
Man! That guy has serious issues.
I have serious issues, too. With Amazon.com.
