Me: *orders replacement keyboard for X230 off eBay*

eBayer: *mails it in an air cushion envelope*

Transport company: *bends the envelope a lot*

keyboard: *is totally mangled and doesn't work*

Me: “Hey, the keyboard is totally mangled and only the power button works, the other keys are dead.”

eBayer: “We're sorry. Want 5€ back?”

Me: “It's broken! I can't use it!”

eBayer: “How about half price? Mind you that returns are expensive…”

Me: Sigh.

Me: *changes password*

Paypal: “Ok, your payment has been made.”

Me: “Wait! Why was I never asked for my one-time password…?”
