Why are people too lazy to type their own name and address properly? Amazon buyers, I'm looking at you. :evil:

Toyota. Flat Cap. Grey Slacks. Slipons. Slower than everyone.

I always do that. Don't think it makes a difference?

Ever since iPhones and iPads I let the autocorrect do it. When I want to order something on my computer pressin shift is a bitch!

--

How about not having a sig at all?

Yes that is annoying!

Ian (middle name Duncan) Smith's staff never put which office they wanted deliveries sent to and were always amazed when one phoned to check. Tosspot!

I don't think I understand this moan.

I think it's a gripe about a lack of redundant capitalisation.

The rise of the mobile device :( they are taking over :lol:

Even worse is people who supply their old address & then complain they never received their stuff!

Don't get me started on suppliers who assume a 5 year old address is still valid! :lol:

Lack of capitalisation bugs the life out of me, even on text messages.

That is no excuse.

Yep, why is it so impossible to use capital letters and punctuation on a mobile device!? People that actually have real jobs as well.

Can you understand the address?

Yes : Treat it as if addressed in crayon and BLOCK CAPS, but deliver anyway

No : Contact addresser

Then move on to more important things in life. Such as: What is for tea? Why does my heated seat make my bum itch? etc.

Since house/flat number and postcode is all you need for a unique address what does it matter?

Personally think that " 1, AB1 2CD " should be the format of address that we use these days.

Would maybe work in cities but small towns and villages quite often have names rather than numbers.

Okay, number/name and postcode then...

Tim, do you even have to type/write out the address? Surely it's just a case of pressing print and job done?

That has no redundancy and therefore too much scope for delivering your post to the same numbered house a few streets away.

Oh b*llocks you're right

Yes, but only because this lazy assed shizzle makes my OCD flicker like a badly pirated movie.

I *could* connect our Amazon Merchant account to our accounting, order processing and courier systems. But, it would mean invoices and shipping labels getting printed out with that badly formatted style. Our web site is connected to a PAF database so the plebians are not required to type their own address, only postcode (which gets automatically formatted properly) and selecting house name/number from a list.

It would drive me nuts, operating in a space where a bob-on first impression is worth a lot of repeat business.

I fully understand this is largely my "problem".

But it still irks me that people are so jeffing lazy.
