It is that hard!

My email to SOCAR, here is the break down of the event.

Day 1: I wanted to register to SOCAR app, but it just doesn’t upload my identification. So I gave up, I emailed the support (after some search, I went to Facebook, because nothing is working) to get my account removed.

Day 2: Received a follow-up automation email regarding whatever it is the first email. The unsubscribe link doesn’t work, it loop back to my email. So again, I contact the support to get myself removed from their newsletter.

Day 14: Another automation email came. I was pissed, I clicked the unsubscribe link, it work this time. I contact the support again to confirm and get myself out of them.

I understand there will be some hiccup especially on email marketing, but removing an email shouldn’t be that hard to do.

It seems like I’m with government agency. Everything is harder and time consuming with them.

Car

I’m not a car enthusiast, as long as it has wheels and cover me on a rainy day, getting me from point A to point B, I’m good. The car I’m driving is about 7 years old now. I’m not planning to change any time soon, but I do bring up the changing car topic with my wife from time to time.

Nissan Grand Livina

Our first thought was an electric car, which is way too limited in the market. Nissan Leaf is kind of expensive for a small car. I don’t believe building an electric car is so difficult, just look at the success with Tesla car (and numerous electric car in China). There is even a solar-powered car.

The thing is, when people buying a car, they’re looking for fast, horsepower and some shits that a car doesn’t really need. Why would a normal town and highway driving need to pick up 100km/h in 6 seconds or less?

If you look at a car as what it is – transportation. There isn’t really a lot of requirement. In fact, I think if we remove a lot of the so-called “performance”, it will still be a car, a decent car we can drive to the mall and have dinner around town.

As a matter of fact, we should in a way limit a car performance to help combat accidents. Here, where I live, there is one t junction (minor road mind you), so far 5 years of living, I’ve seen 3 major accidents (car flipping).

If there is a solar-powered “normal” car available and within my budget, I will sign up first one, no question asked. I still don’t understand why there isn’t much initiative from our government to import/encourage more electric cars.

Marvel Exhibition

So we went to the exhibition the other weekend. Not really that interesting for my liking.

I mean a few items from the movies and that’s all. I don’t like the human figures there, as it is nothing like the real person/thing.

Also, one thing bugs me a lot is the way it exhibits – I cannot go backward. Once we went inside the walkway, there is only one way to go – forward. Why? Why can’t I go back to the previous section? Limited space for those limited items?

Being decent human being

It’s so easy to be a decent human being, just turn/scroll/click away. I don’t know why there are people even take the extra miles to do something to show how indecent they are.

A gentleman took the time to download the car cam video and upload to Facebook ranting another driver for not using signal light. Like this doesn’t happen everywhere every time.

A lady took the time to go to Facebook complaint about a newsletter she received instead of click on the unsubscribe link. I mean if you did not subscribe to the newsletter, it won’t send to you for no reason.

A gentleman took 15 minutes complaint about the slippery floor when he casually walked by and slightly slipped (not fall) over the floor, instead of just turn and continue walking.

Everyone encounters some shitty things every day of every moment. Yours are not that special and also, how much attention you actually want from a petty encounters?

The line between discuss and interrogate

I’m fine if you want to discuss something with me. But when you refused to open up with whatever you have and keep asking me questions after questions, then it is not a discussion, it is accusation or interrogation.

If you are ready to have a discussion regarding your issue, go ahead, but let me know the issue. You refuse to let me know anything even if I asked you. You are keeping things from me and telling me that you want to know the truth.

I do not hide the truth, but I certainly don’t tell shit to a stranger. You want to create politic in a group chat, go ahead. I’m not in there to busybody anything, I’m just there to keep up to date of the situation there.

Go ahead, act like innocent little shit and accuse me shit I don’t even know about. World don’t move around you. Oh, smart move adding some wording to create a public perception on your issue about me just because you are ignorant.

Until now I still don’t know what is the exact issue, and I am still the accused.
