Technology Grrr 5

Greetings, readers. Sorry for the repetitive title, but this morning it was Me versus my PS3 and the Playstation Store. I lost miserably. Grrr. Here’s what happened.

There was a two-year old game, a soccer game to be exact, on sale for $20. The only thing I had to do before purchasing said game was input my new debit card info. The billing info page accepted my name, debit card number, and back card pin number. When I went to put my address in, though, it would not accept it, no matter how hard I tried. I think I tried six variations of my address, spelling out the word East, trying E., etc. No such luck. After six attempts it timed me out and said try again later. I almost opened the window to see if my PS3 could fly. :-S

With Rebecca coming to work this morning, I had to stop and will try again later. If I cannot get the problem solved, I will have to purchase the game from a store, which will cost more money, especially if I need to order it online and have it shipped.

I always marvel at the fact that certain things that take people two minutes to do, take me an hour. To keep with today’s theme, this usually happens on computers, televisions, or other such technologies. It’s not that I don’t know what I’m doing; I’ve ordered things from the Playstation Store before. After my daily chores are done, I’ll figure it out.

What really drives me nuts is that I went to the Playstation Store website and couldn’t find a customer service number to call. That would have solved the problem in a matter of minutes. I’m quite certain that what I’m doing wrong is a minor gaffe. Anyway, that’s been my frustrating morning.

Am I going to let that ruin the rest of my day? Absolutely not. It is sunny and warm here today, probably the last warm day of the fall. I’m going to get out and enjoy it.

That’s the news from here. I’m taking a personal day off tomorrow, however I will have a blog entry ready for Rebecca to edit and put up tomorrow. So until then, take care, have a great day, and happy reading.
