More Email Rage.

 A: I just sent a bitchy message to Sony about their over-priced fucking no-information t-shirts. GOD.

M: Wait, what? T-shirts Sony who?

A: I'm always looking for a really great Bowie shirt and I thought maybe I'd found it, but they're hella expensive:

They give zero information about sizing (or material), so I emailed them to ask and this is the response I got back:

Thank you for contacting MyPlay Direct.

I'm sorry to inform you that size chart is not available. However these T-shirts are standard adult sizes.

PARDON ME. I sent back a bitchy message about how $58 is a lot of money for a t-shirt so some actual product information would be REALLY HELPFUL.

M: Oh, for crying out loud! That is ridiculous.

A: I am SO MAD.

M: Fuck Sony. DAMN THE MAN.

A: Well, it's for the best. $58 for a t-shirt is just stupid.

M: Agreed. I bet it's not even soft. See? Rage.

A: I wouldn't know since they don't actually mention what it's MADE OF. For that price perhaps they've woven in unicorn tears?

M: I think it's woven from David Bowie's actual Ziggy mullet.

A: Oooh, itchy.

M: I don't know, I picture him having very soft hair. I bet Iman buys nice conditioner.

A: Well, but the mullet predates Iman and silicone hair products. Aqua Net, baby!

M: This is true.


  1. Haha, thanks for the morning laugh!

    That is a ridiculous price for a t-shirt :O

  2. Hahahahaha!

    What does "standard adult sizing" even mean? What is standard?

  3. EXACTLY. There IS no standard! Gahhhh!

  4. Standard adult size means really ginormous, kind of like how at tech conferences all the t-shirts are XXL. Anyone can wear them!

  5. No, not exactly. They had a women's cut (shown above) and also a men's version. Women's cut t-shirts are all over the place in terms of sizing.

  6. Oh my god. This exactly. I get so mad when I email customer service and they refuse to answer my question, or make it clear that they didn't read my email. David Bowie, you're too good for Sony.
