        Customer might be a born-again ex smoker, going through that stage of hypersensitivity where if you even show something a cigarette it will "stink." It's a bad stage, for self and others. Been there, done that.

        Or customer might just be an idiot. Or both.

        I picked up a second-hand HD800 a few years ago that had a godawful smell of acrid, stale sweat; thank god for replacement pads and headband cushion. I'd have preferred a smoker's stink.

        So got it in, to my nose familiar with the smell of cigarettes/weed/cigars I would recognize. Smelling this Clear it smelled but not like any of those. Smelled industrial in a way.

        Looked it up and the unit had replaced driver and seems like this was the source of the smell.

      Customer thought he received an open box item, said USB cable and remote were missing. Turns out his toddler opened the box before him

        Yeah I looked up his serial number with all our returned models to see if there was a match, nope. I got a remote and a replacement cable packed up and label made, was maybe 30 mins from dropping it off when he said, whoops!

        Toddler stole my remote and cable to play with.

        I told this to a friend and he brought up a good point. Headphones.com is such a generic website name it causes people to go to us for help on headphones.

        It was real uncool he name drops an IEM I sell to turnaround and its not actually right item. Frustrating since he got it in his phone carrier who could have done the setup for him in a minute.

        "A little racist"

        At least he didn't call you a /big/ racist!

        Seems to me that he is /big/ ignorant. Does he not have a clue about geography, locations, countries, borders, race, and the differences?

      Customer orders a Topping DX7 Pro and sends several emails immediately for shipping on his D70s. We tell him we never had the D70s in stock

        He ended up canceling the order anyway but I now wonder how often this happens with an Amazon since Topping comes out with so many flipping models.

        I WAS considering getting my quite-basically flat HD600 pads swapped out but......... no I think I'll hold onto them. Headband may warrant a swap though.

        Quick aside: anywhere I can get just the one plastic tab to hold the silly thing in place?

        I return, Saturday I was feeling fine most of the day. Had dinner with the family, played some video games but started to get a headache. Trying to sleep Saturday was miserable since I think a raccoon got into the attic and was making a ton of noise. Barely slept at all.

        Sunday I had a splitting headache all day, really bed ridden and miserable. Took a rather high dose edible to even try to fall asleep at night.

        Monday, little bit of lingering head pain, took the day off work to rest a little more. But mid day I was at least feeling 90% strength and was actually able to get out of bed.

        I got Moderna and so did most of the family, my mom was out with similar symptoms after her second dose also but hers lasted a few more days than mine. Overall glad to have gotten the vaccination out of the way.

        Shopify was cool, I had the email logs and the dude literally did a chargeback the day after I refunded him. They ruled in our favor almost immediately in our favor.

        Where do these shitty behavious originate from? It is a side effect of Amazon's 'customer is never wrong' approach to retail? I never used to read about people doing habitual returns or being hostile toward businesses like this. The only charge back I've ever enacted was because an entire discography of CDs was never sent, the band refused to talk to me and I had one day left to do something about it.

        Also, two more things I can see. He is using his school email which I looked up and it is primary school in Sweden so he really is young. Also it has his full first and last name which is... Very Swedish and statistically speaking very unlikely he is black!

        Newegg has been doing bundles to beat bots so I had to buy the m.2 to get the cpu. I considered returning it since the 2tb was so expensive but decided to keep it. Build is going to be pretty overkill for my needs lol.

        That being said, I am prob going to step up my 3080 to a 3080 ti when those launch and sit on it for a couple of generations like my 1080ti

        The amd gpus are pretty good, I think after using the 3080 fe for a little bit now, I want to probably get a quieter card in the future. No rush for me, maybe a 3080ti but not sure totally just yet. Will see how the benchmarks compare on the ti.
