So early this morning I had to go to a housecall in San Mateo for a sick dog.
I was having a little difficulty finding the house, so I pulled over to the side of the road, apparently across the street from a Planned Parenthood.
There was a selection of assholes holding the usual anti-choice signs, standing on the sidewalk outside of the clinic.
I gave them a baleful look and started GoogleMapping the address.
And someone KNOCKS ON MY WINDOW making me jump.
It's one of the protestors.
She's all "Are you going into the Planned Parenthood?"
"No." I respond flatly.
"Oh, OK! God Bless!" she says and scampers off.

[insert slow burn]

So I go to my housecall and do my thing and as I'm leaving, I see the assholes again.
I pull straight into the parking lot and get out of my car, and an escort in a safety vest asks me if I'm here for services.
"No. I'm here to make a donation."
She's a bit taken aback, but seems chuffed, and directs me to the office.
I go into the office and the receptionist asks me the same thing, and I respond with the same thing.
And she's all wide eyed and smiling, obviously this sort of thing doesnt happen too often because she has to ask the manager if they can accept donations there.
They can.
So I write them a check for $200 right there and then.
"This is because of those assholes on the sidewalk."
"Oh are they being loud?"
"No. They're just there. And nobody should have to deal with that shit."
And I walk out.
The escort was waiting for me and she's all pleased.
"Thank you so much! Now that's putting your money where your mouth is!" she says, "Thank you, thank you!!"
I was all "No, thank YOU for being here."
Get in my car and drive away.

Aside from the knocking on my window, which would have earned her a serious ass-tearing all by itself, the thing that pissed me off the most was the "God bless".
Bitch, you are in NO WAY in a position to speak for God.
And I am NOT ON YOUR SIDE just because I was not going to Planned Parenthood.
I don't know why that pissed me off so much, but it did.
Something about the smugness of it made me seethe.
And in l'esprit d'escalier, later I decided that I should have responded with Om Namah Shivaya, or Hail Satan!, or something.

Also, as I discussed with Derek later, their whole position is bullshit.
They practiced contraception, abortion and
even infanticide in Biblical times. Commonly.
Hell, Abraham was going to sacrifice Isaac, his own son, because God ASKED him to.
And God destroyed every last man, woman, and child on Sodam and Gomorrah, though what wickedness could babes in arms commit to deserve such punishment?
So fuck those assholes.
And because of them Planned Parenthood is $200 richer.
HA!
Moving means purging!

Pan fried trout for lunch and caramel flan after.
The cats were driven INSANE with want!!! lolz

Up next, extended massage at the chiropractors and then off to look at flooring and hottubs!

Sometimes its good to be a gangsta...heh.
So, the seller refunded my money to paypal, unasked.
And paypal refunded my credit card automatically.

So since the die was cast, I revised my feedback to say:
"Item was fake, but seller refunded money unasked. Caveat emptor."

I don't doubt that the seller will be in a tizzy, but hey, they are selling fake sterling silver bracelets.
Since all their bracelets are similar, no doubt ALL their items are fake.
Don't buy stuff from China.

Item was:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300450004348&ssPageName=ADME:X::US:1123

Anybody wanna buy a fake silver bracelet that may contain lead/ cadmium/ arsenic or other toxins?
So, on an Ambien binged very late night shopping spree, I bought a crap ton of "sterling silver" bangles on eBay.
As much as I hate buying anything from the Chinese (lead anyone?) several of the sellers were in Hong Kong or Shen Zen (which smells of urine, I know, I could not wash it off my sandals for love or money.)

I have received two of the bangles already.
One is obviously not sterling silver, and the other is probably also a fake.

I left feedback saying that the obviously fake item was not even close to sterling silver, but you get what you pay for.
Pretty much verbatim.

The seller is totes frantic.
S/he refunded all of my money, god bless h/er.
All 4.99$ worth. (Hey, you get what you pay for!)
 But s/he wants me to get rid of my negative feedback.

My impulse is that they can kiss my ass.
Had anyone had the huevos to actually leave that feedback before, I would not have bought the item, even under the influence of semi-hallucinogenic sleeping pills.

It says all over their item profile that THE BUYER IS NOT TO LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK!!
Well yeah, they are selling crap as sterling!

So, ignore them and draw a line in the virtual intarwebs sand?
Take the money and buckle to social pressure to make people happy to re-affirm my self worth?
Take the money and still leave negative feedback? (Boo favours that one, lolz)

What would you do?
