Background: Our family has the slightly-odd tradition of, for birthdays, ordering items for ourselves and then pretending we don’t know about them.
On May 10 of this year, in line with the above tradition, I ordered several games for my birthday. The packages arrived, and I basically forgot about them.
Jump forward one month and a few weeks, to June 18, a few days before my birthday. I get my birthday gifts a few days early, since I’m going to be out of town for 12 days. I’m happy, very happy. Until…
One is missing. I thought I had ordered from three sellers; it turns out that there were four. The fourth never sent the game I ordered.
I sent an email to Seller Number 4 on the 18th, saying that if I received no reponse in a week (a time I figured to be pretty generous, as the package was already nearly a month late), I would contact Amazon.
Today I did so.
What the FUCK were you thinking, SN4? How, exactly, does it come about that you put an item up for sale, and FORGET about it? I understand that there could be outside circumstances, but even so.
Damn it. I hate this habit I have of thinking about all the possibilities. I can’t even work up a good rant anymore.
