The system! It is trying to mock me!

I have tried to put the missing items into that damned shopping cart like 20 times last week. Never worked. Also in the past three years, this never worked. I always ordered each item individually - for the things I need to order now this is not allowed (car + tires + gasoline cards).

Just now that IT person called me. Share screens, show him how to click through it, even though I already had described this in every detail possible.

And suddenly, while he is watching (remotely) - it works. :evil: :evil: :evil:

IT voodoo?

Most likely. My mom complains about this a lot. Everything seems to work just fine if I'm the one behind her computer, but the moment she touches it, things start exploding. Things that shouldn't be exploding, usually.

First day as a mail handler today. I handled mail going to Canadia, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, China, Japan, Switzerland, and Slovenia. Maybe some others, but I don't remember them.

I also stood on my feet for eight hours, which is like, unheard-of. I have got some sore toes.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

For what it's worth, I was primarily handling packages.

ADDENDUM: They were the packages that were too big to be dealt with any other way.
