    Default STUPID-STUPID-STUPID GRrrrrrrrrrrrr Some people are just STUPID

    OK, I am trying to buy a Leupold Scope on E-Bay. However they refuse to sell it to me because it can't be shipped to a foreign country. Here is their last response: "You will have to contact your local customs. Customs will not allow us to ship this item".

    Note: This company is in the continental United States. And thinks Alaska is a foreign country.

    Hey, I had a guy here in Maryland think AK was an island out by Hawaii. Most maps show AK and HI by themselves, and I guess he wasn't aware that AK was attached to Canada.

    I tell people (Lesser 48-ers) that it is generally 1.5:1 given that most items are at least half again more expensive in the Republic of Alaska than it is in America.

    Friggin crazy! I too have had my share of people not knowing where we are and have had some actually argue about it.
    Aside from stupidity- shipping is nuts!
    I was just pricing some tires I can't find locally and one large tire retailer wanted $712 for shipping 4 tires to me ground. 2 day air was $1200.

    AGL- let me know what scope you were wanting...I have a couple of leupolds I might let go of.

    "Sir, we only ship to the continental US."
    "Mam, Alaska is part of the continental US"

    A few times I have held some companies to their 'free shipping to continental US' just out of spite for being treated rudely. They get a memorable geography lesson and the web page jargon switched tout suite. Lucky they did not not ship me a box of rattlesnakes.

    Thanks Andy. I had some other mud tires sent up that way and saved a couple hundred bucks.
    AGL- good luck with getting it and I hope it is a good buy.

    Keep in mind that half the people in the world are below average. And, average isn't all that high.

    This is one of the 'topics' that can get real interesting if it was not so true! Over the years, like everyone one else, I could go on an on about what some people think about Alaska!

    For a number of years, I was a purchasing agent (Supply Officer) for AK DOT/PF. I shoulda kept a log of all the stupid excuses people would give us for not being able (wanting to) sell and ship something for the State. I could have published it all in a little book and made a buck..!

    I heard Alaska was purchased by the US but no humans live there cause its covered in several feet of snow year round...?

    Back when Sara Palin was running for VP I was at a family gathering and a comment was made by a gal " Well, if she gets elected she will have to move to the United States" ! There are a lot of very oblivious people that just don't pay much attention to things outside of their personal interests...
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....
