You do know you can sample first, right?

How did we get to be a society of people who take no responsibility for their own choices? Amazon gives you a free one month trial membership of Prime so you can decide if it is worth the money. How is offering a free trial membership of a program for the express purpose of deciding if it is worth the money being duplicitous?

If you are feeling duped or cheated its because you think you are entitled to something that you are not and feel fooled because you are not getting it.

Right! And they can simply NOT sign up for the full membership. Problem solved. Prime isn't the program for them.

They actually have a line of house hold items, but I only check them out for computer parts.

The purpose of Prime is to provide free shipping for "hard good" to people who shop a lot.
the lending library and streaming video are simply bonus features that you now get with prime. they, out of the goodness of their hearts have decided to allow Kindle users who have a prime account to "borrow" up to one book per month from their store for free. that is it one, not 2, 3 or 4 but ONE book. if they let you borrow any book you wanted any number of times you wanted then it would basically put them out of business (remember the cow and the free milk analogy everyone??).

DONT get prime to get the lending library get it because you want the free shipping (or possibly the free streaming for your fire). now, you could possibly get your money's worth out of it if you read one book per month worth more than $6.60 so it will not be a total rip off but you are going to most likely run out book before you run out of month. Know that, realize that, EMBRACE THAT, because that is the fact, the rule the parameter of the game. when you buy a movie ticket and it ends you dont say to the theater that they should let you come back any number of times you want for the rest of the month to watch any movie you wanted becasue you bought this ticket for this show do you (no, actually please dont answer that because i am sure there are people out there who will say they should be able to....)

know what the product is (ie Amazon Prime) and make an informed decision and then, please be happy with it. know that you get to borrow ONE book per month from the Prime Lending Library as a bonus, a gift, a freebie. it is not the product that Amazon was actually intending to sell you when you gave them your $79. they were trying to be nice and you are bitching about that...

You bear all the responsibility if you don't read every word. Amazon can't be blamed for customer stupidity.

I agree. We can't cure shear stupidity here. It takes using some electrodes to the gonads.

I didn't read about the program I joined, and I hate the program, so it's the fault of the designers of the program. Because I cannot accept responsibility for my own lack of basic research.

Why do so many people behave like that?

Because some people have never quite grown up, maybe?

In reply to an earlier post on May 18, 2012 8:05:27 PM PDT
Most definitely.

Hey! I never grew up. Doesn't mean I think the entire world should conduct itself according to my whim though.

In reply to an earlier post on May 18, 2012 8:12:30 PM PDT
Hey! That's not fair! I have never grown up, but I know how to take responsibility for my own actions.

Well, okay, there's not growing up in a good way, and not growing up in a not-so-good way. For an example of the latter, see the thread from the guy who thinks the Touch sucks because he can't find the power button.

To be fair that button is hidden from plain view :-)

Yeah well--he's doomed. His has been a lifetime of disappointment followed by befuddled anger.

In reply to an earlier post on May 18, 2012 8:23:25 PM PDT
I just posted there. That guy is... LOL!

I think he gets the doofus of the day award.

In reply to an earlier post on May 18, 2012 8:38:52 PM PDT
I think I agree with your analysis.

Posted on May 18, 2012 8:39:17 PM PDT
wonder he could put his key in his ignition to get to the store.

"His has been a lifetime of disappointment followed by befuddled anger."

Love this sentence - stealing.

In reply to an earlier post on May 18, 2012 8:42:26 PM PDT
No, he can't, because he won't read directions & isn't capable of playing around with it until he's got it figured out.

What, no title, old name!?

:o)

Welcome back, a sort of non-Amazon fairy tale!

You beat me to it. Great line, Scott!
