discrimination from The O, and a question

Postby saucy lass on Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:24 pm

So I have a book question, and I thought I'd share my experience too. I hope this is where it goes.
Here's both- I shopped around for my copy of The Gospel and ordered it. The description of the book I ordered said it is 240 pages. The book they sent me has 170 something pages. I emailed them and asked why, which is my question- is the content of the book different or is the one I got just bigger, thus holding more words per page? Does anyone know what the difference is between the 240 page book and the 170 page book?
Anyway, they didn't answer the question. Instead, they sent me an email saying they sent a replacement and I had thirty days to send the original back or they'd charge me for it, too. They did send me a shipping label to print off (falsely assuming I have a printer). I got the replacement that I never asked for today, and it's the same book they had already sent. I confirmed this by painstakingly (insert sarcasm) looking at the number on the last page.
I was very mad at the service I got.
I wonder were they discriminating against my religious belief, and told them as much in my email right after I told them about their crummy customer service and right before I asked could someone please just answer my original question so I'd know if I need to order it from someone that will send me the item for which I paid.
Do you think The O hates Pastafarians or just treats everyone like that?
But seriously.. what IS the difference, besides the number of pages?
Also- thanks for "listening" to me whine.

Hang on there, overstock. :wink: I bought it new so I'd know it isn't vandalized. They still didn't try to tell me the difference, either. Now they just want to give me a refund for it. I don't understand how a refund will explain to me the difference in the books.

Perhaps you have a second printing and the print has been made smaller to save paper as you suspect .
Some of the membership have expressed disappointment with the book , please let me know your thoughts on it when you are done , ty. ARRRRRRGH !

Ok. I think I got to about page 60 before all this book sending and resending and refunding began. I was really enjoying it so far, but if that turns I'll let ya know.
Thanks to both of you.
btw Mr Pirate I love that pic in your signature. :D


Arrgh.. and stuff :wink:

I think Will was talking about his avatar, actually.

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish."
--Pope John Paul II


Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Well, yeah, that would be painful as well, but not quite so much pukey.
