On the subject of bad service…

So I have my lawyer and PurpleSlog has his gripes.. let’s add Dell / DHL to the list.

My AC adapter died the other day, so I called Dell emphasizing the severity of the situation, noting that I oversaw the purchase of four laptops from them, and encouraging them to get it shipped the next day. Then… nothing.

Well, this morning, I received two emails from Dell, each informing me the replacement part was shipped on the 24th. Checking the DHL tracking number provided, I see that DHL (while not leaving any sort of note on the door) has already tried to deliver twice.

So (a) Dell, for its sloppy customer service, and (b) DHL (I think) for its stealth non-notification of delivery attempts.

Maybe it’s best that the Democrats are taking it easy..

A break from serious analysis and Dozier Internet Law, PC to guffaw on a party that’s as bad as the Congressional Republicans.

New York Times reports that the Congressional Democrats work-week is just too long. I’m not surprised. There’s only so much you can do when your dedicated to symbolic legislation with no chance of actually passing.

But the news that the Democrats emailed the Justice Department whistleblower list to Dick Cheney is beyond hilarious. With work like that, maybe Pelosi and company just should stay home!

And it gets better:

Compounding the mistake, the committee later sent out a second email attempting to recall the original email; it, too, included all recipients in the “to:” field, according to a recipient of the emails.
