I don't think I would invite that scenario in to my life. But if I did I can only assume I could handle it because I would be a willing participant, or willing voyeur rather - as a fetish. But if I found out my wife was cheating I can't say how I'd handle it. I probably wouldn't collapse in defeat with my cock and balls tucked between my legs. Every front has a back. So if I invite that kind of upsetting scenario in to my life then I might have deserved it/needed it to happen.
You live in Kuwait? If your wife cheats on you, you could just legally stone her and the man to death.

Get stoned and invite a cuck into your life, then?

handed my notice in today with no job lined up, it was pretty satisfying seeing the look on their faces because they clearly didn't want me to quit but they've fucked me about a few times recently (£5k expenses not being paid amongst other things) so it's strange they didn't see it coming

they're going to come up with an offer next week but I'm not taking it unless they transfer me to NY

Why you wanna come here? The weather? It's raining today, it would feel like home.

Was it you that rented a Ferrari California a ways back? Was that apart of the 5k in expenses that wasn't paid?

If my company denied $5K in expenses I would have quit on the spot.  Good on you

they didn't deny it per se, they just didn't pay it when they should've and didn't tell me, they've paid some of it now and are paying the rest

I was looking forward to my Amazon shipment coming. FedEx fucked it up, as usual. Without selecting their most expensive shipping service you don't get the benefit of being able to pick up your package at a FedEx kiosk, and if you 'miss' the delivery 3 times it is Return to Sender. In my case that is literally on the other side of Canada, a short 8 hour flight away. The kick in the teeth is that I didn't miss shit. FedEx showed up, saw there is no doorman, and drove away. No sticky note saying "hey, we missed you" or a call saying "yo, that's 2 strikes, you should get your shit together".

Fuck you FedEx. I hope you fucking fail. Purolator and UPS are vastly better. Eat a dick.

Ive had no issues with FedEx or UPS (or USPS). We have OnTrac which is likely the worst company ever to exist. Amazon HAS to be the only thing keeping them afloat because you can't find a single favorable reviews on them anywhere. Amazon must pay them just enough to keep the company going while paying them less than any of the others.

Amazon is an awesome company. I don't know how I managed to live before without it.

The good news is that I know Amazon has decent customer service, so when I explain this to them they will likely ship out the package again with a different courier. It's not a lost cause, but fuck me do I need those fuzzy dice.

amazon totally raped the publishing industry and now have expanded into holding a bunch of other industries over a barrel, too. good for the end-consumer i guess in the same way that über is great for someone who just wants a lift across town.

amazon demand like a 60% discount on the wholesale price of books. if a mom and pops brick and mortar store asked us for those rates we'd tell them to go fuck their apple-pie eating kids. but because it's amazon we have no choice. then they don't pay tax. meh. the whole amazon-paypal prophet circle are a bunch of psychopaths.

It's funny because it's the first time in over a decade amazon actually posted a profit.

Being underpriced can only be sustainable for so long. Amazon is purely supported by it's investors and once the bubble burst, amazon will go down with it. Amazon will have to start changing its business model for it to remain sustainable. Which is one of the reason why the knock off alibaba is doing quite well.

Same with Uber, cost cutting can only go so far.

They've been profitable for six straight quarters and the profits keep expanding.

you are legitimately a bozo cybargs.

Amazon has posted a profit for years now. They posted net income last year, and in 2012 too.  Amazon's profit is largely from their web services.  AWS is consistently a $500M cash cow for Amazon.  They lose money on their e-commerce unit by design - price penetration is as rudimentary an ecomomic strategy as can be...you didn't learn about that in your myriad business classes? They are almost at a point where e-commerce is synonymous with Amazon, which is the fucking point.  They don't have to change their business model - their business model is undercut everyone until they are the only viable option.

Alibaba isn't a knockoff either, any more than Yandex is a knockoff of Google.  They serve different markets, that's all.

Go back to contract law. Or ask one of your professors so you can parrot their response here.
