look at the packaging

herbsewell  asked:

As you recently said that you found the campaign of Mass Effect 3 to be mediocre, why did you give it a 4/5 score when you reviewed it in 2012?

Because games are multifaceted things and aren’t just “the story” or “the shooting” or any one of those individual parts. The things we take from a game as it ages also tends to change. So in the full analysis at its time of release, a disappointing Mass Effect game is probably still better than most of 2012’s other releases. In a review context, looking at the full package, for the standards of its time, it’s a “good” game.

But in terms of the parts of that game that stuck out and stay with me, it’s mostly that the ending of that game wasn’t worth the outrage because so many of the franchise’s decisions were handled in a fairly slapdash fashion in the hours leading up to said ending. That stuff was disappointing.

So, earlier today I went to Target with my boyfriend and I decided to get 2 pack of Animal Crossing amiibo cards, however…something strange happened

The packaging looked promising

So far so good, but then….

they were fucking YU-GI-OH CARDS

and only FIVE I might add


(luckily I was able to exchange them for a LEGIT pack, in which the Target employee who helped me earlier and the employee who did the exchange were laughing uncontrollably)


⭐️💫A Few SPWL Child to Toddler Conversions🌟⭐️

Note: You may want to consider enabling your baby hair for toddlers in S4S. Some hairs look a lot better with it. To enable them open the package in S4S > categories > put a check next to toddlers and apply to all swatches then save.


The meshes are required because Harmony is stupid. *rolls eyes*

Child Versions:

SPWLTFAftershock (unreleased)

UPDATE 012317: All these hairs have been updated so they no longer require the mesh.

What does my gc2b package look like?

All of our orders are shipped in standard grey envelopes or USPS Priority Mail envelopes. There is NO mention of the brand on the outside of the package; our return address will state that the package is from someone named Karen to maintain discretion. 

We use standard international labels and mark the item as ‘gift,’ to help compensate for customs fees. It’s important to keep in mind that there is still a chance that your order may get caught in customs if you are an international order. 

What’s inside my gc2b package?

Your gc2b package will contain your binder (naturally), a packing slip with your order information enclosed, and a gc2b insert that explains how to take care of and put on your binder safely. If you need any of these things removed from your package, please let us know before placing your order, so that we  an ensure that you receive your binder safely!  We never want to compromise anyone’s well-being or safety by shipping something that might cause trouble. Your needs are very important to us. 

As always, if you have any questions at all, we are standing by to help with any and all of your binding needs.❤️❤️❤️❤️

Retail Etiquette

AKA a few ways you, the customer, can help make a retail worker’s life easier.

1. If you don’t want something, put it back where you found it. Not sitting on a shelf nearby. Not halfway across the store. Right where you found it. On the peg/ however it was displayed originally. Please. I know it’s super easy to just drop that thing where you are, especially if you’re across the store, but imagine having to put that one thing back times a hundred. That’s what we have to do. Every day. It’s like the world’s worst scavenger hunt that takes literal hours. All work that is avoided if you take five seconds to put that thing back where you found it.

1.5. Don’t trash the shelves looking for that one perfect package in the back or whatever and leave it. Fix what you mess up, or what your kids mess up.

2. Clean up after yourself. Don’t leave trash lying around - cleaning the store and keeping it clean is a monumental task itself without people leaving empty cups on shelves. We have trash cans, use them. Wipe your feet. If you spill something, alert somebody.

3. Do not come in right before close, unless it’s an emergency and you know exactly what you need. In, grab the thing you need, and out before close. If you come into a store 10 minutes or less before close, you’re being (albeit mildly) rude. The staff has closing tasks they need to get done, often before the store actually closes and you’re keeping them from that. If you’re fast, no problem. If you linger and shop around, you’re being rude.

3.5. Do not linger after close. Know when a store closes, and get out when it does. Every minute you stay after close is a minute later the staff actually gets home. You are literally keeping the staff from going home to their family if you stay after close, and it’s deeply rude. Your time is not more important than theirs, especially AFTER the hours they’re obligated to give you their time.

4. If you break something, just tell the staff. They’re not going to make you buy it, it just goes into the ‘store damage’ bin in most places. Don’t try to hide it (world’s worst scavenger hunt part two) or just set it back on the shelf for someone else to find it and complain. Please.

5. Listen to the staff. They know what they’re talking about when they say they don’t have it in the back. They spend almost every day in the store - odds are they know even without looking. Listen to recommendations. Listen to them on policy. They know this stuff, you don’t no matter how long you’ve been a customer. They’re TRAINED, you’re not.

6. Be kind. Be polite. We all have bad days, but if a service worker can be polite and accommodating for 6-8 hours despite that, you can be for ten minutes. Don’t lose your temper if staff messes up. Service workers can only do so much; they’re the bottom of the entire corporate chain, and have literally no authority. Is that two dollars really worth demeaning another human being over?

Re: the Usual Comments:

“But it’s your job to put things back/clean up after me!”

It’s not. It’s deeply strange how people suddenly feel so entitled inside a store. A staff member is there to assist you shopping, not be your nanny. We shouldn’t have to clean up after you. You are not a child - clean up after yourself.

“I’m creating jobs when I -inconvenience store workers in some way-”

No, Cheryl, you’re not making jobs by leaving your empty starbucks cup on my shelf. I would have this job regardless of you making it more difficult, and my company isn’t going to hire more people just because you do. They just expect me to deal with it.
