    [1st World Problem/Rant]

    LET ME CANCEL MY ****ING PLAYSTATION PLUS SUBSCRIPTION FFS

    Try to sign in to my account online - find that I haven't set up the credentials on my mooltipass yet, so I have to migrate credentials from KeePassXC to Mooltipass. Fine.

    Log in to my Sony account and try to change subscription settings, every single time I click something on the account management page I get a pop up telling me I'll be taken to a new page. Well... um... Yes.... That's what happens when you click a link, you get taken to another web page, THAT'S WHAT LINKS ARE FOR.

    Now I get redirected to store.playstation.com... OK, why? Why couldn't I do it on the previous page where I was supposedly managing my account? Fine...

    Try to turn off auto renewal for Playstation Plus and I get a nice message telling me my subscription status didn't change, please try again later.

    Turn off all the privacy plugins and ad-blockers on that site - nope, still the same message.

    Try it in Edge, since most of the internet seems to treat Firefox like a second-class citizen. Except it turns out I didn't save the credentials on my mooltipass properly and I've deleted them from KeePassXC. So now I have to change my password.

    10 minutes and god knows how many 2FA messages later, I'm signed in via Edge.

    Try to turn off auto renewal for Playstation Plus...... aaaaaand I get the same thing: "Nah mate, **** off, not doing that, ****in do it later or something I dunno".

    OK, so let's try to delete my card details from my Playstation Store account.

    NOPE. Now it's a different message: "Well that didn't work. Wait a minute and try again."

    Switch back to Firefox... Need to sign back in because new password and now I can store the credentials on the mooltipass properly...

    OK, let's try turning off auto renewal again...

    Nope. "Well that didn't work. Wait a minute and try again."

    Waits several minutes....

    "Well that didn't work. Wait a minute and try again."

    Angrily clicks "Payment Management" to try removing card details again....

    "Well that didn't work. Wait a minute and try again."

    This is a multi- multi- multi-billion dollar company for ****'s sake! How ****ing hard is it to have a ****ing website that works?! Stop giving me some stupid ****ing "Baby's First Error" horseshit and give me a real ****ing error message! I've wasted 45 ****ing minutes of my life just trying to save myself £6.99 a ****ing month! I will cancel this now, I will figure this out right now out of sheer bloody-mindedness - Sony can absolutely get ****ed if they think they're getting another penny because I gave up with their horrific user experience. I will cancel the ****ing card if I have to - try charging a cancelled card, you useless ****s.

    How easy is this with my Microsoft account? Oh, account.microsoft.com, that's pretty easy to remember. Oh look, there's all my subscriptions listed in one place - and what's that? Cancelling a subscription actually works? Well slap my ass and call me Shirley, turns out it CAN be easy to do! Well **** me, eh?!

    Forgive me @Byron C , that was a lot to read and so I'm not sure if I missed if you tried this. Have you tried directly through your playstation rather than via a pc?

    I've found some things work that way for some reason.

    It could be worse. Sony just seems to be incompetent, at least it's not an anti-consumer dark design pattern like cancelling your Magix Vegas Pro 365 subscription. Which you have to do via email, because they don't offer the option on the website. There's absolutely no excuse for not having a "Cancel Subscription" option on a website which has an online debit/credit card billing system.

    I did.... afterwards. And it worked perfectly.

    Glad it's sorted.

    I can't remember what I was trying to do once and getting annoyed with a "why the fricking frick can I not do this online!!!" but I could do it straight through my PS4.

    Infuriating.

    That I am still working at this time of night (1 am) and no I don't work night shifts. I'm very much meant to be a keyboard jockey on 9-5 type workdays!

    Working in a role with a million different systems in a thousand different languages, and being expected to just know it all. The ticket I've been assigned could probably be done by someone in a couple of days, I'm just finishing up week 3 and am pretty over it.

    Happens to the best of us, sadly. Rest up and look after yourself/family, it can really knock you for six.

    I’ve only been to one, Farnborough back when the big thing was a low, exceeding loud, fly-past by Concorde, about 50 years ago!

    Confronted a group of teenagers outside mine trying to smash the bus stop's glass, obviously didn’t go down too well because their parents would be around to rearrange my teeth shortly…

    Then I realised the mistake… My pride and joy is on the driveway, probably shouldn't have done that.

    I took a call from a urology consultant on my way driving home from working away all week yesterday evening and, after a couple of blood tests recently (which I'm really no good with, I always feel faint), they want me in again. All's clear with what the initial concern was, but they now want to get me in to do an ultrasound on my liver. I don't feel any different and nothing is out of the ordinary but some levels were showing as marginally high on the first test and a little higher on the second blood test. Best to get checked out for sure. I try to keep away from 'what ifs' and reading up, but it might be due to a course of Amitripylene I'm now on which currently keeps about 95% of the constant headaches away due to tension in my shoulders and neck from a long-standing whiplash injury - but it might be causing minor spikes in certain levels in my liver. It is the lowest dosage though but I guess it depends on the person and how the body reacts, maybe. I have barely any alcohol intake at all and no history of anything, even in the family. So maybe/hopefully it's just these pills and perhaps something different can be prescribed.
    It's on my mind a little bit.

    I’d much rather take paracetamol and ibuprofen than a antidepressant. Messing with your brain chemistry.
