my first one!!!
although im expecting something like “you were 201 amd the system goofed. you dont get one.” bombed my interview - dentist with 4 cavities and forgot my work laptop this week. camt expect too much but JUST MAYBE! I REALLY GOT ONE
VALUABLE NUMERICAL CORK
I’m at the “screw you” point on these IRKs. It’s (roughly) 12:08 am where I am, and you Sold Out 7.99 minutes ago. And no, I’m not going to set my alarm for 7:58 am to try to snag one then. But this is bullshit. Goodie for those 200 people who got one in the first 60 seconds. But this is crap, and I kind of hope those 200 people get nothing but floor shavings.
@CBL_WV And, oh yeah, what about the “bennies” that KS/VMPs are supposed to get?? Did you all completely abandon that? We should, at least, get an opportunity for the $5 off coupon (without having to be one of the first 200 people on the site in the first minute!)
If it weren’t for the free shipping on the other sites, mainly Casemates, I would drop you guys in a New York minute!!
@spleener No, it’s the pricniple of the thing. No one should have to be waiting to pounce on the site at precisely 12:00:01, on a daily deal site. I wouldn’t have gotten an IRK anyway, my system’s delay time is horrendous, so that is not my point. But go ahead, be a jerk…
@Ignorant I know that, and it’s not my point (although it would be funnier if the IRKs were actually boxes of Nothing But Junk and floor sweepings.) It’s that this site does this kind of thing, at all. As if we’re supposed to be loaded and ready at exactly mindinght, and then don’t have internet issues on our own side that can’t even resolve this site in under an actual minute.
@CBL_WV sore loser meh? Instead of being happy for those who got one . . . meanwhile I diligently check at midnight on the dot for years and years and have scored many an IRK and fuku before that and have also missed many of them as well. Frustrating when I miss by seconds? Sure but then again, no one is forcing you to come back eh. Besides 12:08 is never gonna cut it. LOL
@Willijs3 I didn’t even try to get one, my issue is that it’s legitimately not fair to a whole lot of people who follow, much less support, this site. And IRK/Fuko was always a special treat, and often wasn’t even available for non-members. I feel like Meh has lost it’s way, in not honoring those of us who have ben here through all the ups and downs. Glad you’re "tickled by the ‘bitterness’ " from those of us who are disappointed with the process, though.
@CBL_WV I feel like a majority of the whole treat of Irks/Fuko’s are that they’re special and rare and easy to miss out on? I’ve been on and off meh forever and even though I joined in 2014 when i was still a young teen and saw/missed out a lot on some Fuko’s, i didn’t get pissed/disappointed as missing out on these because they sell out so quickly is part of the process. If everyone got one they wouldnt feel as special and also the quality of them would obviously have to drop by a ton
@PooltoyWolf Oh, no, apparently you’re “bitter” that Meh pulled this crap, and didn’t time it exactly so it’s convenient for you (or something, I’m just channeling all the people above, who don’t grasp my point!)
@cfg83@hchavers@Ignorant, it’s, 7:00 AM CDT where I’m at, but as you said, No, Thanks!! The last thing I need is more useless shit!! I have plenty of crap cluttering up the rooms, hallway, work shop, carport, closets, garage apt, drawers, cabinets, or the compressor room!!
@1DisabledWarVet@cfg83@Ignorant that a pretty comprehensive list. What about the master bedroom, the kitchen, the laundry room, the spare bedroom you use as an office, your neighbor’s back corner that’s really yours, and trunk of the car on blocks out front?
Ditto…I’m here every night…tonight we are having storm warnings and the power and all services went out for over an hour. We just got everything back and I see this. I feel like I live on a tilt-a-world. Not just this but everything is just out of sync. It’s just something else I missed out on.
With a great username like sunny side up no one could ever say that you’re channeling anything other than good, positive energy! Maybe you should try some sort of reset, a saging of sorts…
Yeah I almost got a BOC yesterday at Woot but it hasn’t been 31 days since I bought the last one so they wouldn’t let me buy it. That’s okay though as the last BOC I got and also the last meh Irk I got ( irk in August last year) were all junk … nothing useful- at least to me! Would have been nice for the five dollar coupon from meh with this irk though but that’s just how it goes. Things more important than missing out in irks and BOC’s — night all mehers !
