Wink A Cat, a coffee cup & a Kindle- Amazon is Awesome!


So this is my Kindle. My cat, Frank, after being repeatedly being told "NO" that he couldn't get in my lap. Went to the other side of the chair and jumped straight up on my desk knocking my Kindle & coffee cup onto the floor. The coffee cup being a huge "I need my Fraking Caffeine Mug" came down directly on the kindle screen and promptly broke the screen.

Since I have more money invested in Frank than I do the Kindle, I couldn't get mad at him. He's just very needy and I should have known better than to try and deny him.. <Bad daddy>

Anyway.. I figured I'd call Amazon find out how much it was going to cost to fix it, then wait until after Xmas to scrape up the cash to get the screen replaced.

Low and behold.. The Amazon CSR said it was covered. I asked again and made sure he knew it was my fault and not a defect. He said it was covered and they would issue me a return mailing label and would ship me out another one.

How cool is that..!

And as for Frank, he's out of the dog house. He stayed by my side for 2 days as I wretched my guts out from a new medicine made from lizard spit.. Seriously, Byetta is made from a protein found in Gila Monster saliva..
So all is forgiven.

Every time someone tries to make out that Amazon is the spawn of satan, I'm going to tell them this story. That's why I got a Kindle. If Sony customer service had treated me half as well, I'd probably have more Sony electronics around the house.

Since I frankly don't have a cat, or a Kindle, or drink coffee, I'm not worried.

Hah! I had a Sony Reader before the Kindle came out, and I can vouchsafe for their absolutely horrible customer service. It's the pits.

myridom, you are supposed to post a pic of the cat! Congrats on getting a new K.

And thank you for being such a good daddy and not punishing your cat. A little bit of disappointment is okay, but we're glad he didn't suffer --- and even redeemed himself when you were sick. They *are* good at snuggling!

Heh, my cat gets away with a lot of things. It's hard to get mad at them furry critters.

I think cats can sense when their human is not feeling well. I've had the same experience--my cat would stay by my side when I wasn't feeling well.

My cats have always listened to me. Then they ignore me, but they always have listened.

On the serious side, all my cats have learned early on what “No” means and I don’t have any trouble with them ignoring me unless they are chasing bugs or the like.
