Whatever happened to e-commerce?

*Voice starts off quiet but rises angrily, Al Pacino style:*

All I want is a fucking watch from fucking Amazon, but no, neither Amazon UK nor Amazon US will ship to fucking Hong Kong.

So much for THE INTERNET.

And before you ask, no, there’s no fucking Amazon Hong Kong, but there is an Amazon fucking China. Which isn’t actually Amazon, it’s someone called Joyo. (And they don't do Breo. Full stop.) And no, they don’t do proper fucking Traditional Chinese writing, so I CAN’T FUCKING READ IT.

Seriously - who writes with half the words missing? Seriously?

Fuming like a linen cloth soaked in turps on a radiator.

Why do you say Amazon don't ship to HK?
I've done it.
I see boxes arriving at my office for colleagues sometimes.
Is a watch a prohibited export?

Apparently watches are on the list of no-nos. I've just ordered Serenity comics from Amazon UK and they've already been dispatched. I guess watches are spayshall, seeing as they've always sent DVD box sets out to me here too...
