now, this evening something goes wrong with…a small appliance of mine that shall remain unidentified lest doing so will reveal the identity the subject of this post<–i am trying not to be a jaggobite you see
ok so…the small appliance has stopped working and i am trying to source a part to get it fixed
because i live in mobay which is a technological hell hole or gold mine depending on whether you are the buyer or the seller
the part is not available
so i take to the interwebs hoping i will not have to pay $3000 to import $800 worth a goods
so, since me join every group known to man pon facebook <–in case a rainy day like this occurs, since me know me mash up tings regular
me type di first few letters of the…appliance, and of course a group come up selling parts fi di appliance
so me read through now and start get excited say yes, dis is it, me a go find di summn pon di same land mass
if this works out it will make up for the 7 notifications a day i get about sales, new stock, old stock, stock weh in between and mus sell before it transition…all dese tings
find one number and call.
di smaddy say hello? <–the inquisitive hello weh imply say dem nuh know di numbah
me say hello, are you the person who sells the (small appliance) parts on facebook
them say: no< — jus dry so, no sign that there is any kind of recognition nuttn
so me start feel say dis poor person mus a get a million calls sake a di wrong number weh deh pon facebook
ready fi commiserate and tell dem bout how friday evening time noise used to inna me head side caw me home phone numbah come een like pizza hut <–and yes i did take orders and offer bread sticks
or me say…a me dial it wrong
so me ask dem, is your number (insert number here)?
di man say yes. <–dry same so, jus like a piece a toast
so me say…oh, well, they have your number here on facebook <–ready fi tell di poor ting say him need fi talk to di people dem, or worse , me will go talk to dem fi him, he must be so fed up!
di man say oh….i don’t sell (small appliances) ANYMORE
