I ordered a sweet knife for my Dad from thinkgeek.com on Monday 6/19. It appears they are doing inventory and this is causing some minor shipping delays. Fine.
I asked for DHL shipping since it was cheap and I don’t need it that quick. I received the following message in my email order confirmation:
Huh? Doesn’t this mean the same as “Your order will ship after Monday 6/26?” If so, why not just say that? Since this is a site run by self-proffessed geeks, I imagine that I’m missing something. Maybe it means “We’ll ship it on Saturday if we’re done with inventory, otherwise we’ll finish on Monday and ship it afterward.” Would DHL even be able to accept a low priority package on a Saturday? If they said “Your order will ship after Monday 6/26”, I’d understand.
So, what do they mean exactly, and does it make sense for them to have phrased it this way?
