Even Alexa is having a day

Alexa just apologized for something I couldn't understand - out of the blue. I could look up what she said and why she said it but I think I'll just accept her apology and move on.

I decided to cancel my Fitbit pre-order and re-order using a different credit card. Canceling was easy. I reordered and got no confirmation email. After about an hour I saw no sign (and their website has no path from 'account' to orders which is very weird). So I got into Chat and got a very nice, no shit CSR who verified that there was no sign of my order and my actual order number was not in their system. I should order again. WTF?

So I copied the chat session for backup and ordered again. Only this time I screwed up the order. AND there was no cancel button on the order status page. Sigh. And chat was not not available. So I called. The nice woman canceled my order but it still showed as 'live' to me so I asked her for an email confirmation that it was canceled and she sent it quite quickly which I thought was nice.

Then I re-re-reordered and this time got it right. Yeah. Still not shipping til the end of the month.

Then I took a load of stuff down to the dumpster. I managed to get back up here with no coughing so I'm declaring a win.

I decided to get doordash for lunch. I looked at some options and finally settled and put together an order for lunch and dinner. $25 worth of food. With taxes, tip and special seattle fees, the final price was $50. NFW. If you charge me $45 for food and $5 for tip, I'd honestly probably go for it. but I just cannot bring myself to pay $25 in fees. It makes no sense, I know but I have left over chicken salad which will be fine. Thanks.

I just saw a tweet from my internet and cable company that wildfires were causing interruptions for some of their Oregon customers. It's one thing to burn shit but you start messing with my internet and cable tv and things are going to get ugly.
