We have good news! The item G.Skill RipjawsX 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Desktop Memory F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL on your Price Watch List has now dropped in price! The current online price is AU$58.98

Normally, a price cut of a component I want would be a thing to rejoice over, right. especially considering that I'm just a poor high school student.

But this shit is just a tease people! That component's original price was $59.99. Their discount comes to a total of one dollar and one cent. Why bother with such an absurdly low price drop?!

A few months ago they dropped Windows 7 from $115 to ~$85, that right there is a price drop! The hell is up with their pricing people?!

Damn! You are becoming more difficult to please. It's a dollar dude - and one cent! Come on - they even took the time to inform you. You should be more grateful. Sleepy

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

It's a price drop of around 1.7%; it isn't bad for a hot item like DDR3 RAM, where the competition is cut-throat to say the least and margins are already very little.

Windows 7 is a discontinued product, totally different situation.

All I'm saying is it seems like such an absurdly small cut.

RE: Ranting corner
Missed two days of work because the person who was suppose to show me the website where I can log on and find all my pay slips and my roster and a heap of other shit didn't do their job.
Also found my roster and I'm working 5 days this week but next week I'm not rostered on for any days, not even Tuesday which I thought was my permanent work day (not that I'm complaining about that because I wanted to get next week Tuesday off anyway, people who own a xbox one know why).

RE: Ranting corner
It's a needle. It's going to fucking hurt. Instead of telling me I hurt more than other people, which I'm sure it did hurt, there are a shit ton of nerve endings in the hand, why don't you just suck it up and thank me for getting it on the first try where other nurses failed miserably. I know your balls have dropped because they're hanging out of your damn gown, so stop being a fucking twat. I could have used a bigger needle, asshole.

Believe it or not, I didn't walk into your room thinking hmmmm how can I make this hurt the most. No. I came into your room thinking, well he's got shit for veins, challenge accepted. I'm going to get this on the first try.

That's right bitches, first damn try! Cause I'm a pro. Suck it.


And then he had to be a complete douche. Just fucking die already. Not really. But yeh. No. Yeh.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta
