So, I bought this poster for Mel. The seller never made any contact or any sign that anything had been shipped at any point; Weeks passed; I contacted the seller through their site, since maybe the shipping speeds are, like, 6-8 weeks; Weeks passed; I opened a PayPal dispute, because, as far as I knew, I was asking a computer to take money back from a ghost; Weeks passed; PayPal took my side; The day after I got my refund….he shipped two posters?
I’m fundamentally confused by this business plan. It was over two months of trying to get in ANY contact. At no point was I mean or complaining, just repeatedly going through the PayPal motions. All messages ended with “but, really, I’d still like the poster or confirmation that the poster is coming.” There’s no reviewing or feedback system he needs to worry about. He could have, at any point, just shipped a poster and kept his money. Or, like, trade zero money for zero posters. We didn’t even order/want the Superbad one…
Bonus, the cat can literally not stand the idea of posters being on the floor for more than fifteen seconds.
In 1986 there was a cartoon called Ghostbusters, clearly riding on the popularity of the film and infringing on trademarks. The only thing it had in common with the film was that there were people who chased ghosts.
But get this— it’s actually amazing in its shittiness? It’s the Venture Brothers if it was earnest.
