But when it comes to the internet I hate making judgements about a person when all they've been is nice and pretty awesome. Plus if they haven't done anything to me personally than I assume that they're a decent person. If I see drama going on in the fandom I most def stay out of it b/c, hello, it has nothing to do w/ me.
Soo...the following is going under a cut. Feel free to pass along. :)
Yes so I wont say names since anyone who reads this can assume who I'm talking about. When the GQ magazine came out I was totes excited as were everyone else. Obviously the first thought was where the fuck can I get it etc. Well when she was offering to buy a whole bunch for people I got excited that it was more accessible. So of course I asked how much it would be blah blah. At the same time a friend of mine in Germany actually offered to get the magazine for me. To say the least I was ecstatic. Well she sent it to me on a Friday and I got it the following Monday. I mean thats fucking quick as shit.
This was about maybe a week or so, maybe more after "ordering" some mags from "her". Well I saw on her LJ that she finally sent it out on the 29th of January I believe. Once again hella excited and I started counting the days as to when I should be expecting it. Well when those lovely days passed on by I kept looking and waiting for the mail to see a package knowing it'll be my magazines.
As a few of us know, its been almost a bloody month and we've yet to get anything. If it was just a 'hey I can get the magazine for you no point in paying' blah blah than we probs wouldn't care as much. But this is involving money and god damn it when money is fucking involved and I'm expecting whateverthefuck I ordered and nothing comes I start getting worried.
Than I see that apparently she got sick, is in the hospital, etc etc. I got a bit worried as I would for anyone thats fallen ill. Well honestly, from what I noticed most of the people who asked for magazines are relatively close to NY and it shouldn't ever have taken this long. Except we still haven't gotten anything.
Now last night I get told about this whole situation and I get fucking pissed. Like I said, this is involving money. When we ask for someone to get something and than we send money and than expect to get what we want in about 2 weeks or so, than get shit, I along w/ others assume that we've been tricked out of our money. Who wouldn't think that? I mean honestly. So as of now, I'm just pissed and I'm trying to see if I can get my money back or what the hell else I'm gonna do. I've gotten the one from my friend in Germany and love it. I've also ordered another magazine on my own. Fucking $17 for a damn shit but its worth it. Lol.
Sooo...to wrap this hella long entry up. I also don't know what to think. I've been seeing peoples responses and her response to all this and I'm just confused. Deep down I don't wanna think the worst and I wanna believe that we'll get what we asked for which is the coveted magazine. But than again so many people have had issues and I'm on the fence. IDW what to believe. All I know is that if I dont get my magazine soon I'm gonna do something. Involving paypal and getting my 19.45 back because this is honestly just ridiculous.
EDIT: Yea so I just told my boss about this drama shit (I walked into work and...yea it started w/ me saying it wasn't a good night). He basically said that I can sue her. I mean yes its just a damn magazine but for fucks sake, you live in bloody NY. My friend in Germany got to me within a few days. HELLO!! Germany! Overseas damn it. Plus since everyone whos "bought" said magazine from her has said their point, we can basically file a class action suit to the state attorney general I believe, in New York.
Trying to scare someone? That is quite possible. Yes supposedly shes in the hospital. But you know what. Like I said above the magazines were "sent out" on the 29th of last month. Its been almost a month. No matter what the hell happened, within these weeks everyone should've got the magazine already. If there were issues, we should've been notified of it so we know. But we didnt. Therefore, as my boss said, we can all do something if necessary, which I hope its not, and give a deadline. Its beyond something small now.
This honestly shouldn't have happened. I really hope we dont need to do something so drastic as taking it to the state, but its a possibility that I honestly wouldn't mind taking action for. So...yea.
