Thoughts and Blogs
I don’t want to turn this into a rant post, but I guess some may interested why I didn’t update for 2 weeks.
I was having some Real life problem these weeks, and my girlfriend was out of town in the moment, so I am having a bad time on comforting myself. (Though I never able to express my gratitude enough to her)
Don’t want to have my negative energy spread thru the blog (I suspect my warlock alt is responsible for this), I decided to stop writing altogether.
I guess I’ll get some old draft polished and publish them right away.
Focus, must stay positive
Funny Thing of The Week (At least I found sth funny this week )
Diamond Ring and Its Box
The Guy who charge for the box of a diamond ring
I keep buying Herbs for milling, I mill all my Ink of the sea myself, and always reserving a 300-400 stock, in case I am busy.
So I would LFB in trade, whenever I am in city, and have people COD them to me. I paid them right away and forward the herbs to my bank alt (Of course I only mill them when leisure).
So, here comes this special farmer, the Herbs is sold on 10g per stack, and for every stack he mailed me, he charge an extra 30 copper for it.
Cute, isn’t him?
I mean, come on, it’s a freaking 0.03% (33333:1) ratio…
Or I can manifest this in a RL example.
At a Tiffany Retail
Shopkeeper : “Sir, here is the ring you purchased, The price is 33000 USD, and we charge an extra 1 dollar for the box holding it,
so it’s 33001 dollar in total, thank you.”
He (and the staff at Tiffany) had the right to charge for the mail cost (and the box), but is it really matters?
Consider the time he needed to type in the mail box for the 30 copper each time he sell, how much time he spent to earn 1g for charging the 30 copper? (Compare that to the time he needs to kill a random mob at ice-crown then)
What was he thinking?
