I ordered something for my daughter's birthday back in November so that it would arrive in time, but for whatever reasons, the ship date got pushed back to the day after her b-day. I let her know that it was still on it's way.
The day that they were supposed to ship the item, I received an e-mail stating, "blah blah dah dee dah double blah." The new ship date was December 17th. Ugh. I guess is going to be a Christmas present, right?
Well, I received an e-mail this morning stating that "Your order has been shipped!" and should be here on Wednesday. I got a smile for a second, but hey, wait a minute. I'm not going to be tricked into thinking you shipped it early when in fact you're late. Nice try, but no cigar.
