The Future Of Shopping

There are some unique challenges to online fashion retail. People are all kinds of funny shapes and sizes – and it is tough to know how a garment will look on you without trying it on.

Some of the problems of selling things online cover all areas however, and are not limited to a particular product or market. Take a look at this (very funny video). If that seems like any sites you use you need to ask yourself why you are using them.

It is important that the user experience online is improved. As the consumer the only thing you can do is vote with your feet and refuse to give business to those who make it hard to use there sites. It is also important to remember that even online you have consumer rights, and to be aware of them.

Travel Agent Questions

Below is a collection of issues that a travel agent in the USA has had to deal with when it comes to finding people the perfect trip abroad for a holiday, business or just general commuting. There are some truly fantastic examples in here of why perhaps Americans should not be allowed to travel. Or should just be thrown on a plane. It makes for some truly cringe-worthy reading!

I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window.

A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii.  After going over all the cost info, she asked, “Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?”

I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown.  I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when she interrupted me with “I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts. “Without trying to make her look like the stupid one, I calmly explained, “Capecod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa.”  Her response … click.

A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, “Don’t lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state.”

I got a call from a man who asked, “Is it possible to see England from Canada?” I said, “No.” He said “But they look so close on the map.”

Another man called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a 1-hour lay over in Dallas.  When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, “I heard Dallas was a big airport, and I need a car to drive between the gates to save time.”

A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and got into Chicago at 8:33am.  I tried to explain that Michigan was an hour ahead of llinois, but she could not understand the concept of time zones. Finally I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!

A woman called and asked, “Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know who’s luggage belongs to who?” I said, “No, why do you ask?” She replied, “Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said FAT, and I’m overweight, is there any connection?” After putting her on hold for a minute while I “looked into it” (I was actually laughing) I came back and explained the city code for Fresno is FAT, and that the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.

I just got off the phone with a man who asked, “How do I know which plane to get on?” I asked him what exactly he meant, which he replied, “I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these darn planes have numbers on them.”

A woman called and said, “I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes.” I asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, “Yeah, whatever.”

A businessman called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him he needed a visa. “Oh no I don’t, I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.” I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When I told him this he said, “Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express.”

A woman called to make reservations, “I want to go from Chicago to Hippopotamus, New York” The agent was at a loss for words. Finally, the agent: “Are you sure that’s the name of the town?” “Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the customer. After some searching, the agent came back with, “I’m sorry, ma’am, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a Hippopotamus anywhere.” The customer retorted, “Oh don’t be silly. Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!” The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, “You don’t mean Buffalo, do you?” “That’s it! I knew it was a big animal!”

Silly Business Men

I’m not the worlds biggest car enthusiast, this is probably due to the fact: I can’t drive nor do I wish to considering the current prices of actually owning and effectively running one. I do however appreciate the designs and aesthetics of cars especially cars which I know I will never be able to own or even able to rent.

Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini Gallardo

This is a Lamborghini Gallardo. The type of car anyone who enjoys rap/hip hop or indeed fast cars will appreciate. Its especially popular with tacky footballers and hip hop ‘hangers on’. It was also owned by double act of business investors Glenn Knowles, 35, and Richard Mant, 39. Who after a drunken night out lost the car when they went back to where they believed they had parked it.

Burning White Van Man

This is what happens when you are carrying gas whilst smoking cigarettes in your white van van hire – perhaps the driver was visiting friends.

Either way I don’t think it meant a happy Christmas for him.

Perhaps this was the man after…

Argh Damn Printer Ink Prices

I found this very interesting post on Reddit about how one man has decided enough is enough when it comes to the price of Printer Ink.

Its interesting to think really that sometimes it might actually be cheaper to buy a new printer rather then buying new ink everytime – I can see the financial savings that could be made – Is this something people might do more often?

Tea Drinkers Harming the Environment?

Recycle.co.uk today released there fairly OTT post on how ‘Tea Drinkers are Harming the Environment‘. I have included the full post for you to read below.

When people think of ways that they can reduce waste and energy consumption they usually think of the big things, like the cars that they drive, or the house that they heat and electrify. However, studies have shown that there are also small changes that people can make in their lifestyle which will make a collective dent in the amount of waste in the United Kingdom. Things like unplugging a mobile phone charger when it is not in use or turning a television off at the main switch can save millions in energy usage if everyone would do them. A recent report claims that even something as simple as a cup of tea can have dramatic effects on the environment.

This week WRAP, the government’s waste watchdog, released a study which illustrated a variety of small ways in which citizens in the United Kingdom can reduce their waste. While some groups claim that massive restructuring needs to be done in British homes, WRAP says there are small ways that each and every person can make a difference. One small example WRAP offers goes to those who don’t finish a cup of tea. According to WRAP, an enormous amount of waste is created by people who re-boil an entire kettle of water rather than re-heating the cup they didn’t finish.

According to the WRAP study it takes nearly one hundred and fifty grams of CO2 emissions to make a cup of white coffee from scratch, which is around the same amount it takes to drive a mile in a car. It takes only about thirty grams to re-heat a cup of tea or coffee in the microwave.

Ok, so sure there are ways of people making environmental savings, but why are we singling out making a cup of tea? My point is that – sure I might not finish a cup of tea, but luckily for the eco-warrior types I am not going to re-heat it, instead I will probably just wait until the next craving for tea/coffee comes and then make another cup. Unfortunately I think the case in question comes from peoples distinct hatred of the seemingly old fashioned kettle. Personally nothing is better then a lovely cuppa, brewed in my brand new (at birthday) kettle.

Friend: What did you get for your birthday mate?

Me: Ah, Lots of nice presents, also a Kettle

Friend: What?!?

There does seem to be a dislike to anything Old Fashioned or even that horrible word ‘retro’, personally a tea pot + some nice tea bags makes the nicest brew possibly, there is no way you are going to convince me otherwise, and then at least I feel like I am doing my bit (not that I was aware the simple, unadulterated pleasure of drinking tea was costing our precious world seconds) for climate change. Luckily however I don’t see there being any form of banning of drinking or wasting cups of tea – lets be honest there would be ‘national outcry’ and the economy would collapse, perhaps a modern day Boston Tea Party (is it me or should that be renamed – Boston Coffee/White Hot Chocolate Party?)

Final words? We need change and we need it now? We all should revert to owning tea pots and ‘brewing’ up eco-friendly tea…

Cutting Essentials.

I positively hate being driven around at night, especially in the County I live in where as soon as you venture of a main road there seems to be no streetlights, there is something horribly disconcerting about having to use ‘full beam’ lights on a dual-carriageway. It might be my lack of attention to any detail when I’m away from home – surely this is not the same anywhere else? If it is then perhaps im the most ignorant back seat driver ever.

Many streetlights will be going off soon in a central Indiana city in a budget cutting move.

The Muncie City Council has slashed its $630,000 streetlight budget in half as it tries to close a $1.5 million spending shortfall for next year. City Councilman Sam Marshall says that services must be adjusted as statewide property tax caps reduce revenues. He says lights will remain at busy intersections, but that elsewhere every other streetlight might be turned off possibly as soon as January. I&M Power spokesman David Mayne says Muncie has about 4,300 streetlights and the company will be working with the city on the shutdown.

It would be nice to have my local council make the investments and provide us with some adequate lighting then at least they could justify trying to save money by taking them away…
