My Email to Amazon.Com


This is the third time I have attempted to purchase this order for the 2007 Far Side Desk Calendar: The Secret Lives of Animals, and it is subsequently the third time I have cancelled the order. Every time I try to order this item (which I have been trying to do for some time now) the expected shipping date is up to 60 days away!!!!

I have never had something take so long to ship before, and I am curious to know why this is? I love using Amazon but if this shipping problem is a new trend, I'll have to do my online shopping somewhere else, I'm afraid. 2 months wait for a DESK CALENDAR is ridiculous.

I just wanted to call this to attention. I know nobody cares, and I doubt anybody will even read this. But I wanted to do it, for my own peace of mind. I've tried to buy this desk calendar in stores but have had no luck. And now, I can't even buy it online because the wait is so long it'll be 2008 before I get it, which doesn't help me.

I know I'm probably screwed, and that is fine, I guess. I'll just have to go to Office Depot and get some lame schedule planner calendar with no funny pictures or anything to keep my interest. Just a dull planner with nothing but sadness and boredom to offer me.

Anyway, just thought you folks at would be interested to know that I am having drama, and there is no calendar at my desk, and I sit in this cubicle with no joy in my life.

Thanks for your time.

PS: Shanshu is in a blog tournament! I think this idea is cool and the fact that I am even a part of it gets me all hot and bothered in my nethers. sure to check it out over at Ookami Snow's place and see what you think. And if you feel like leaving a "Shanshu should win his first pairing" comment...that would be ok, too.

I feel left out because I have no cubicle. Everyone always talks about there cool cubicle and I feel loserish and left out....

MsLittlePea said...

their I mean-see? loserish, not cool enough for a cube and can't even spell- or is it thier-whatever

Shanshu said...


I don't think you could classify my cubicle as "cool" but I suppose it's better than sitting on the floor like at my old job.

Oh, and don't worry: there are TONS of loserish people that work with me, so don't worry. I bet they can't spell, either.


Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE!

Maybe Amazon knows that Gary Larson is the devil and is trying to save your soul? ;)

Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE!

Funny and dirty.. Thats what I like about you. :)

Cheer up, my friend. There are lots of wacky,bizarre calenders out there, some of which are downright offensive to others and all the more worth buying. And why do you need a calender anyway? Its all in the stars..

Anamika Anyone said...

I'm in the tournament too! Best of luck!

Shanshu said...


"It's all in the stars"

That made me chuckle.

Oh, and Steven: Far Side isn't evil. If it were, I would feel all dirty when I read it.

I think the 60 days is how long it would take to walk from Coffeyville Ks (the Amazon distribution center) to your place.

Maybe they are suggesting you should drive on down and just pick it up.

Shanshu said...

Wow, I hope they don't expect me to drive down and pick up that stupid calendar. I don't think I want it that badly.

Although, it has become something of a quest, at this point.

Hmmm. Possible Road Trip.
