Juneathon Day 27: the one with some DOMS and goodbye to FleaBay

Good morning and Happy Friday. When this blog is published, I’ll hopefully be working from home, making good progress with some quite technically challenging flow assessments.

So, what did I get up to on Day 27 of Juneathon? Did my feet recover from the run? Did I manage to answer all of my work emails?

After a terrible night’s sleep, I woke up feeling shattered. I didn’t want to get out of bed and almost went for the getting into the office later option. This would have meant a late finish so I dragged myself out of bed. The mostly downhill walk to Blake Street station was slower than usual as my legs and feet felt a tad DOMS’y. The walk between Birmingham New Street and Moor Street turned into a sprint as my first train was so late.

Work was work. I managed to get a lot of emails sent out and may have volunteered myself to help out with a couple of drought related projects. I must remember not to be too keen during this initial ‘quieter’ period otherwise I’ll struggle when my workload increases. I left the office at 15:30 and made it home just over an hour later, before Birmingham New Street suffered some sort of signal failure.

It was hot! I’d spent the day in an air-conditioned office and had no idea how warm it was outside. I decided to make the most of the sun, and spent an hour in the garden, relaxing after what had been a slightly ‘testing’ day.

I felt quite calm when I opened my FleaBay account, and was about to leave feedback for some sellers, when I noticed someone had left me negative feedback. The feedback wasn’t just negative; it was offensive and completely false. Now, the one time I had an issue I contacted the seller, this person had made no effort to contact me. I ‘phoned FleaBay who said that although they could remove the offensive comment, they weren’t able to remove the negative rating as ‘the buyer is always right’ and it would be ‘my word against the buyers’. I did some research and discovered the buyer has a habit of leaving offensive, negative feedback.

I ended all my listings and have started the account closure process. Life is too short to deal with idiots online and there are plenty of other options. I can see why FleaBay is struggling. That’s my rant over!

The rest of the evening was far more chilled out, possibly because I knew I didn’t have to get up at 05:30. I even sold a few bits and pieces on a Facebook selling page.

I completely forgot to take any photos, but this photo from an old blog summarises my thoughts on FleaBay!

Best thing spotted on the Internet on Day 27

It has to be this tweet…

The Lionesses have never won a major trophy, hopefully they are about to change this.
