    Shipping rant

    On Nov 23rd, I ordered a new ”toy” from a company that shall remain unnamed. Like a fool I opted for the free shipping. They stated 10-13 days give or take. I thought I don’t really “need” it and it couldn’t possibly take that long. Well as of today, because of a weather delay, the package is slated to be delivered on the 6th of Dec. It’s around 500 miles away which makes it that much more frustrating. I will never learn that I just don’t have the patience for such things!

    That would be right on their claim of 13 days.

    Calm down and have a beer.........

    Re: Shipping rant

    with online sales being so dominant (and competetive) these days over in person purchasing (or it seems), there shouldn't be a reason for an order to take longer than 5 days or be had sooner if within the USA. JMO.

    I was gonna reply to Paulmys but since you’re agreeing with me I’ll just ignore him ��. Yes, I can order from Am@#&n and have it in 2 days. Walmart.com takes 1 day. 14 days is an eternity. I could be dead by then. That’s 1209600 secs for god sakes. I think Paul is right. I need a drink

    I just hope you get the right toy when it arrives. My dad recently ordered with Walmart and got the wrong item. He STILL hasn’t gotten what he ordered yet.

    Sorry if I sounded mean. That was certainly not my intention.

    My point was that you knew about the 10-13 day shipping window.......

    Sorry for any misunderstanding. Cheers.

    Re: Shipping rant

    What annoys me is when you order something and they don't ship it out the same day, but wait for more than 24 hours to ship it which just adds 2 days to receiving time. Anytime I order anything and need to decide between different sites, I look at the one that says same day shipping and go with that one.

    I’ve had that happen to me too and it is annoying. I don’t understand what the hold up is.

    Re: Shipping rant

    Im with PaulMys. Just because you didnt believe them doesnt mean you should be upset. lol. It looks like they made it very clear it would take that long.

    I will ask this though. Where was it coming from and going to? I mean it is pretty reasonable that coming from China to the US is 10-14 days.
