Man do I feel left out of this thread... maybe I have been self
employed too damn long, responsible for myself and my business.
The cost of goods in the consumer's eyes should be the cost to the
door. Taxes, shipping, handling, notifications, shipping method, and
anything else that I ALWAYS ask for is revealed when questioned. That
is being responsible with your money. It is >your< responsibility to
be careful, prudent, and wise with your money. Period.
Amazon is not doing anything you couldn't eventually figure out... I
mean you did, right? Was it because it was there in front of you?
If you don't like the answers, if you don't like the method of
presentation, or if you don't like the way you are treated, why in the
hell would you buy from one of these companies
and their affiliates?
Life is too short. Complaining will do absolutely nothing. Move on.
Next vendor, please.
