Freakin' Yahoos...

A couple days ago, I was having some trouble getting into my e-mail account. So I clicked on the "help" feature on Yahoo to see if it would offer any useful tips in getting me to my inbox faster and without errors.

Yeah, I totally should have known better.

See, I kept getting this error message each time I wanted to read my mail. I could sign in to Yahoo just fine, but I couldn't read any of my mail. After trying to read my mail for 20 minutes, and having 20 minutes' worth of stupid errors showing up whenever I tried...I was frustrated.

I became even more frustrated when I tried to seek help through Yahoo. Above is the form they have that you can use to submit a help ticket. It seemed pretty useless, especially since the form notes the following:

Important notice: Please be sure to check your junk or spam folder if you do not see a reply in your inbox from a Yahoo! Technical Support Agent.

When I saw that, I wanted to scream. This "error 15" was happening because I couldn't get into my inbox. Now, if I can't get into my inbox, how the hell am I supposed to know if a Yahoo! Technical Service Agent had e-mailed me?

But of course those Yahoos couldn't stop there. In addition to that little gem of blatant stupidity, they also had to make a cute little spelling error. They wrote "occassionally" instead of "occasionally."

Ahhh, Yahoo, why does it not surprise me that you put the "ass" in "occasionally" (when it's not supposed to be there at all)? *sigh*

You'd think they'd ask for an alternate email address in case the problem is...well, exactly what your problem is.

The spelling error just tops it off.
