Wrong thread. This post should have gone in the Xbox Hardware thread. Which is not to be confused with the Xbox Dispatch thread. Or the Xbox thread. Or the Xbox games thread. Or the Xbox Gamepass thread. Or the Xbox One thread. Mods!

wrong thread. this post should be in the whiny tedium thread.

Thanks buddy.

 

I've spent two hours messing around in the menus, making a new avatar, trying to get it to send PCM 5.1 audio to my Yamaha receiver with eArc and then left a bunch of games downloading. As someone who hasn't used an Xbox since the early days of the Xbox One, the menus seem completely baffling. But I'll get it. It's such a Windows 10 machine under the hood that if you go hunting for custom background images it has a Win 10 user layout including "my 3D objects" folder :lol: 

 

It was very pleasing to go into the TV calibration and see a long line of green ticks. But even then I know that the LG CX has some problems with VRR which might never be resolved. Going to buy Valhalla (against my better judgement) so I can have some shinies to muck around with I think.

Yep, it was delivered about 5 minutes before I had to pick the kids up.  Tried to get a picture of it with the dog but she was having none of it.  More of a PS5 girl, I think.  Will try later for the good of the forum.  

 

Just letting it download all the new shiny patches, maybe even play something by the weekend.

My Amazon.de pre-order that was delayed Monday night till Thursday delivery arrived today. I got a shipping update on 11am that it was out for delivery and it arrived by 2pm.  I already got a 5 euro voucher when I complained to them on Tuesday and I just got an e-mail that seems to have gotten out to a lot of people with another 10 euro voucher. The mail basically said "We fucked up the Xbox launch and we are very, very sorry" but in German. 

 

So not too shabbby... brings the purchase price down to 485 euro! It also came with 40% off on 3 months GPU so that's another 20 euro savings.

Well that was epic! In a bad way. 
 

Was supposed to turn up tomorrow. Then had an alert that it was out for delivery and was 7 stops away... 

 

As I nervously curtain twitched I could see the driver over the road. Amazon app was telling me exactly where my Xbox was.. 5 then 4 then 3 then 2....

 

Then it’s me.... only .... he fucking drives off. ..!!! What the actual fuck.

 

Ok I’m done trying to be cool as cucumber about it. I am going to have to run after the fucker based on his location on the app.  He’s a mile away but I going to find him .... so run I did. 
 

I can see the van... but he’s getting back in and about to drive off again... I run a bit faster and literally slam against the side of his van, hammering on it as he indicates to pull off. 
 

He gets out angrily - to the sight of this middle aged white, sweating, panting and trying to speak. He explains it’s the end of his day and he’s heading back to the depo so can’t help, sorry. Call Amazon.  I explain that he isn’t getting back to the depo alive unless he delivers the fucking Xbox Amazon promised me. 


 

I must look a bit unhinged at this point. As he looks at me a moment then opens the van door and reluctantly hands me the only parcel left in his van.  It’s 7.39pm at night. It’s a day late. But I got it. Fuck you Amazon I got it!

What the fuck. That's some fucked up shit there threatening someone who just wants to finish work and get home when he's probably already gone over his hours for the day!

Considering the photo above shows the van across the street I’d suggest it’s not unfair to think the driver could take a couple of minutes to deliver his final parcel. It’s not like he had to go completely out of his way.

That's beside the point. How would you feel if you were threatened at your place of work by a random member of the public.


The driver should have delivered the package without the need for intervention. There’s absolutely no excuse as to why he wouldn’t.

It's just unacceptable to be shouting at customer service people and harrassing gig economy drivers because their multi trillion dollar corporate overlords failed to deliver some frivolous expensive toy on the dot.

 

Taking photos of the driver and posting them on a public forum is extra distasteful. Would ask for those to be deleted.

Erm. Sorry but there was a very good reason. He had finished work. 


One package left across the street from his previous drop off. Not too much to ask from a representative of one of the worlds wealthiest companies. Amazon guarantee their customers a delivery date. They can adhere to it.

Yesterday morning at 9.30am my Amazon driver was parked around the corner about 50 metres away from my house for about 5 minutes. I was the next delivery in line but he suddenly decided to hotfoot it miles away in his van. Maybe he too was going to nick my Xbox. Luckily because I was paying attention I was able to get through to someone on chat, who contacted the delivery team and got him to come back an hour or so later. He proceeded to select the ‘parcel handed to resident’ option when he actually just left it outside on the doorstep. Grade A cunt.

Employee not delivering final package seconds walk away - bad.

 

Threatening delivery driver - bad.

 

As my dad always says, two wrongs don’t make a right. But then I normally say to Dad I was wronged first and Mum taught me to respond in kind.


Probably would’ve been alright if it just wasn’t for the threat.

He’s almost certainly a self employed gig driver. How’d you feel now?

Perhaps he had to be somewhere later that night and did as much as he could before then. We don't know the reason why because we don't know his side of the story just the fact that he was threatened because of it.

I was assuming the "threat" was him embellishing his story for the forum and really it was middle aged white, sweating, panting and trying to speak finally saying "P.p.p.p...please c.can i have my xbox mister"

 

Otherwise - yikes!

I certainly hope it was because no-one should be threatened at work or otherwise over something like this.
