So I was 99% convinced in using Amazon’s Web Services to test with a new business website. As I filled out my information, this dreadful screen came up:
Apparently, Amazon has never had a DEAF customer. This isn’t the first time I’ve been snubbed. Amazon.co.uk has SCREWED me over for several days asking for phone verification last January and I have a log of my talk with support somewhere on here which I’ve been intending to post.
Want to know what they told me? Here’s one example, support guy asked me to get a neighbor to do the phone verification for me. Seriously? Ever heard of common sense, assholes? What if my neighbors are assholes? (They are.) Thankfully I can speak properly, but what if the neighbor’s don’t understand my frantic gesticulation as I shove the phone in their faces trying to tell them Amazon is calling?
Now, since this is the 2nd time Amazon does this to me. I am going to wage a full-scale war against them until they change their screwed up verification process. I’m extremely
hungry and pissed off now.
Jeff, tell your lemmings to clean up their act or someone might actually slap y’all with a class-action suit for discrimination against the deaf.
(I even set a dedicated Amazon category.)
