A rant Answered

So, I've been wanting a didgeridoo, and thanks to my $25 gift certificate to amazon from the science fair, I was finally able to order one! I knew that I didn't want a PVC one (like many that are for sale) but other than that, it just needed to be cheap. Luckily, I found the perfect one, so I ordered it on the 13th. The estimated shipping date was from the 22nd to the 25th...so they would ship it today or tomorrow. When I checked my email this morning, this is what I found:

Dear Micah Weissensteinburg,

We have received the order you placed on Amazon.

In rare instances, we run out of stock on an item and another person
buys it before we can update our stock on Amazon. Unfortunately that is
what happened in this case. The 52" Aboriginal Didgeridoo is on backorder but our
supplier could not provide us the ETA, so unfortunately we do not know when it could be shipped.

We fell behind a bit on our stock updates. We really strive to keep our customers happy and wish to attempt to make
this right with you. We will offer you a 10% discount on your next order with us.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Just make note on your next
order that you were promised a 10% discount (with this number 6Y139).
Please visit our storefront under ShopZeus.com.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely,

Support team

That's right, twelve days later I get an email saying that they just didn't have any more...and it's not like that 10% will do anything, they're the kind of store that sells whatever hey can get their hands on. Twelve days to find out they're sold out is just inexcusable, and now i'm stuck trying to find another didge, besides the fact that a bunch of my friends expect me to have it on monday. Gah!

I'll give you a didgeridoo if you can play Styx - Renegade on it at 2X tempo speed.

That is worse then inexcusable in my book. It is lazy and nearly immoral. Haven't they heard of computers yet? Do they actually think we are stupid enough to believe they update inventory records kept on their computer, by manual keypunching?

It didn't even happen to me, and it makes me mad.

. Hmmmmmmm. I just checked your link and it still says there is one in stock. I tried to order it, but you have to have cookies enabled and I don't like you enough to do that. ;) If you think you can get a refund, I'll turn on cookies and have it shipped to ya (or at least try).

That one in stock is because they still haven't updated it. You would just get an email, eventually, saying that they don't have any. I think i'm gonna call them, and see if they'll ever get any more.

Only eucalyptus ones cost a fortune (few hundred dollars) ...pvc ones are the cheapest, but teak, bamboo, and hardwood are affordable.
