Default Bit*** Nurse Rant! UPDATED AGAIN 6/13/20

Okay, I know that we are all short of patience right now, but I think I’ve reached my limit with greedy, grasping assholes!!!





Far from feeling any kindness and compassion right now, I’m actually sending very negative thoughts/energy to each of these individuals. Just sayin...

You'd think that Disney would have a way to put a stop to that kind of crap!

I'm assuming Disney is donating profits to some kind of health related charity. Far be it from them to profit from a public health crisis.

I know. I’m mad, but probably more disappointed than anything. I would actually have worn that. Assholes!

That stinks!! Seems they have mastered how to get stuff even with the parks closed. I wonder if that monthly Minnie merchandise has been taken up by bots too.

Yes, this is a widespread problem. Recently ShopDisney had Star Wars merch that was released on May 4th (may the fourth be with you) … And it was all gone within minutes due to bots.

I'm not sure how people are using these bots, but essentially every new item is gone before the average fan can buy it. Surely they could do something to curtail this.

Disney is making about $15 on each of these pins. Want to stop the profiteering, real easy, make a shit ton more of them.

It's the same way they use bots to buy up tix for concerts, sporting events, etc. It's very difficult to stop. Plus, we know how technologically advanced Disney is....

I don’t know. In the case of the nurse pins, Disney has already made their money. So if they would just do unlimited re-release, even at 17.99 each, we might have a shot at the pins, and the bot-heads (like that?) who bought them all could just freakin choke on them! Way more than 3000 nurses in the world, anyway.
