Crapulent craptastic crap has arrived - pretty much the standard package.

1 x Crappy Red Duffle
2 x Crappy Headbands
2 x Fairly non-Crappy Tripods
1 x Wine Tote (Wine NOT Included)
1 x Bar of Honey Hippie Soap (smell reminds me of sandalwood)
1 x Black Halloweeny T-shirt (Little Girl's Large - my daughter thinks it'll fit)
1 x Cootie Avoidance Kit
1 x Pulse Massager (w/pads, batteries, manual - anxious to try)

(Oh, yeah, that white roll behind everything is the standard issue giant Tron thingy.)

The setup shot:



The obligatory cat - Dollycat is not impressed by this crap:



and the piece of resistance... a random Curtis remote control without batteries for the TV they forgot to put in the box:



All in all, I'm a pretty happy Crapskateer - Thanks Colonel Crap!

UPDATE: I'm using the soap - it's stinky, but it works. I accidentally broke the pulse massager... I tried testing it by putting the four pads on my thigh while they were still side by side on the plastic sheet and it worked for a second, then it arced between the pads and stopped - now whatever I do, the controller just says "P". Dang me.

It's kinda funny... he gets the first first one and probably receives it last ;)



Oh cruel irony...

It sounds like they need to start the letter thing again...

I would have figured he would have gotten one by now, I guess they didn't plan for this...?

Received my Brick of Carbonite yesterday. Opened it this morning so it could be BBOC (Birthday Bundles of Clones) Box weight was listed as 2.6#. Also received the extra 1# package that many received

Received:

1x Tron Fathead
1x Woot "?" Paper Bag
1x Kids size 10 - Cake is a liar shirt
1x XL Plain brown t-shirt
1x 4 Pack AAA Batteries
1x Box SIGG Bottle Clean Tablets
1x Red Skitterbot
1x Red iFly Heli GYRO 3.5CH RC Helicopter


Wife is going to see if any of her students want the tron fathead.

The Woot ? bag is proudly displayed on one of the shelves in our home office bookshelves next to a few monkeys.

The helicopter worked great in a short test flight. Can't wait to get home from work and play some more.

Thanks Woot!

ssiemonsma wrote:I finally got ahold of someone at FedEx who knew what they were talking about. My 76.8 pound package (which never updated after its May 2nd Dallas scan-in) apparently is not a lost hope. The representative said that if if weighed in over the SmartPost weight limit (70 pounds), that FedEx would hold the package and contact the seller (Woot) in order to arrange for it to be shipped via FedEx Ground. In that case, it would be assigned a new tracking number. I'll get an email back from FedEx's "investigation team" in 24-72 hours to see if they find anything out.

Do any Woot staffers know how you guys would handle this situation? Would you guys most likely pay the extra shipping (probably rather expensive), retrieve the package and lighten the load to under the 70 pound limit, or just say screw it and ship out a regular Bandolier of Carrots? (I've already contacted Woot support once, and they were just insistent I be patient despite the unsualness of the case)

Whatever you guys choose to do (assuming this is what has happened to my package), I REALLY need to know what was in that original one, so much so that I'd pay FedEx's FedEx Ground rate just to find out.

So a big thanks to Woot and the Colonel for attempting to send out such a massive Brick of Carbonite, and I look forward to its safe arrival!



ssiemonsma - Apparently, the rations that I sent you were too much for the slow moving transport that we used and it was returned to HQ. We are re-deploying it on a fast mover today and you should be seeing it in your camp shortly. Stand fast. The Colonel

Hmm... HP Touchpad boxes are 10.0 x 9.5 x 1.75

I'd say I'm getting 5 HP Touchpads but the ship weight is about 2 pounds...

I'm getting two HP Touchpads, a paper bag and a small woman's t-shirt.

YAY T-SHIRT!!!



I would like to thank Woot for sending me two 32GB Hp Touchpads. YAY!!!








I would like to but I got a bar of soap.


Along with the following:

One Terrific Turkey Thermometer
One woman XL Jurrassic Punk t-shirt
One flu protection kit
One black duffel bag
One Tron Fathead
One kids fossil excavation kit
Two table top tripods

Almost got the shirt right.

I guess I can wear the t-shirt (way too small) like a bib, use mask from the flu protection kit to protect my lungs while using the tripods to hold a magnifying glass (not included) and the Hp Touchpad camera (not included) during my excavation and clean up with the soap afterward.

Guess I can bake the Tron Fathead and use the turkey thermometer to tell me when it is done. Think the Fathead will work like a shrinky-dink?

Or I can take everything, put it in the duffel bag and bury it in the back yard for future generations to discover.

Sounds like a plan!

1 "Dreamie" that was inside a box that looked to be ran over by a truck. Instead we realized it had been dropped in a pond or something because the Dreamie inside was soaking wet and had spots of mold growing on it. Really disgusting. Washed my hands thoroughly after dropping it in the washing machine and hoping for the best.

Gross gross and more gross.



Okay, I just checked my e-mail and found a message from Woot informing me that my replacement order had been shipped. Checking the woot site, I found a message as follows: "Sorry for the, um, wet dreamie. We'll make it up to you by sending you another dreamie and maybe more.

Let's just say, you'll be swimming (or sleeping) in them for a while." This came from DennisWKam. I certainly wasn't expecting this and am not sure whether or not to be happy about it. But I appreciate the effort. P.S. Who wants a 'Dreamie'? I think I'm going to have an abundance of them soon.

Another awesome aspect of Woot. They probably have the best customer service, hands down. I can't wait to see what you end up getting!

I wish I had known about Woot when I still lived in Fort Worth. I would have applied to work there in a heart beat.

My crap from the last round is still "out for delivery" as of 04/02. I just received a replacement at 13.9lbs, 24.6x19x12.6

Contents:
1x Perfect Push Up
1x Chicken Rotisserie
1x Blue duffel bag

Everybody at work made fun of me for it missing an item, but I'm happy with the effort to correct the mess up of the USPS.

Its supposed to be 54.2 in. x 16 in. x 10.7 in.

Maybe its a box of tron fathead boxes.

That would be funny.

Crap is what “woot!” offered. Crap is what “woot!” shipped.
Crap is what was broken when the FedEx person tripped.
Crap is what was opened. Crap is what was lost.
Crap is what we should expect given the minimal cost.

Crap is what we dream about each night of the year.
Crap is what we watch for when the yellow lights appear.
Crap is what we know we’ll get by hitting “I Want One!”
Crap is what we should expect. It’s all part of the fun.

Crap is what we brag about if we’re lucky enough to score.
Crap is what we talk about within the message boards.

Crap is a broken Sansa or a pallet full of wax.
Crap is purple pasta in dirty plastic sacks.
Crap is a screaming monkey or a leak-detecting frog.
Crap is what they write about within the crappy blogs.

Crap will always have a bag inside the crappy box.
Crap is the wrong size t-shirt or a nice pair of dry socks.
Crap could be a Dyson although it would be rare.
Crap is almost always packed with bags of Texas air.
Crap is sometimes epic. Crap is often dull.
Crap is anything at all that “woot!” decides to cull.

Crap notes from the Colonel are akin to the Holy Grail
We all do hope to get one within our crappy mail.

Crap! Is what we yell in vain as the “woot-off!” ends.
Then crap’s discussed for days and days among our forum friends.
Could crap be the single thing that we love the most?
Or could my crappy poem at least get me a quality post?

I was sort of hoping to hear that FedEx was informed to just remove a couple foot flushes and Brother in Arms action figures from the pallet and to let the package continue on its merry way.

I'm assuming the 70 lb load limit is to prevent the poor USPS postal worker from throwing out his back on his normal delivery route.
