I recently bought my commuter’s parking permit for Uni over the net. But towards the end of the application process, it asked me for a “student account number” which I mistook for a student credit card number. Once it was complete, a “print page for records” sort of window comes up. And a warning message appears, stating that a student account number is really your student ID number. Wow, what pure genius thought it would be a good idea to inform the user AFTER the fact, when a mistake like that can easily be made?? (censored) you!
So then I had to contact the appropriate division by student email, and even though they said the problem has been fixed, and I don’t have to do anything, I have no way of confirming that or verifying if they even fully understood me. It makes me so pissed off not knowing whether or not that faulty permit I applied for will even arrive at all, or be usable if it does, given the details presented on my account. So much that I, literally, smack myself in the head repeatedly until I get dizzy. Why do stupid things like this always disrupt my peaceful train of thought?
