Topic: Let's do a rally of meaningless complaints (Read 7 times) previous topic - next topic


Like I said in the title, just meaningless complaints. If you're reading, let's see what complain you have got ...

I have purchased plenty of IKEA furniture in the past so I know what quality I'm buying. Most of the IKEA furniture I bought 7 years ago are still standing. On the other hand, my recent purchases have been disappointing. They used to use a metal thing that tightens screws, the top 2 rows on the picture here:


Now it is made of plastic! This is the piece that needs to be tightened fairly hard. And a $60 3-level book shelf I bought is designed with a fried brain that it exhibits the most basic principle of parallelogram. It's just bad design, not stable. The Target book case I spent $20-$25 on didn't get this bad. I'm a good assembler and this is just unacceptable now.

Not to mention a dozen lamps I returned to Office Depot, because fried brain Mr. A designed the packaging so that the head of the lamp sticks against the tiny toggle switch inside the box. A few rough handling during shipping will damage or loosen the switch. I opened 3 boxes and found 2 toggle switches damaged.

The list goes on with lenses I bought being only nominally 50mm diameter but fall through 50mm lens holders, a data logger shield occasionally can't find the SD card (maybe some spring contact is bad) ...

What complaint have you got?


Oh, the "someone has replied your post" message is blocking the replies link on the forum. It that message were just a bit less tall, it'd be fine  :P



How about, why can't you buy real drugs at a drug store?

Sorry, that's from an old George Carlin routine from his hippy-dippy weather man days.  ;)



I think it is really annoying that arduino never fixed the pin header problem. 8)
Now if I sold shields; my customers could not plug in my shields the wrong way; which reduces the amount of magic smoke and business. ]:D

Yours complaining
