Just got a reply from firstname.lastname@example.org, they'll be sending out an e-mail soon explaining the situation.
For reference here's what I sent:
To the honorable Woot monkey High Priest or Priestess,
There appears to be a problem with the fulfillment of these orders, which is causing much distress among your devotees. Details can be found here: http://www.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5008222. Basically, if you read the description carefully, it says a 2 pack of a short and long pointer, or 4 pointing devices in total.
Seeing this great deal I was in for 3. Here's where it gets a little problematic. 3 orders times 4 pointing devices should be 12 pointing devices in total, 6 long and 6 short. I got 6 in total, 3 long and 3 short. I'm not the only one.
Now it may be we angered the gods for jumping on such a good deal, instead of letting someone younger and more deserving take it. If this is indeed divine punishment, let me know and I shall immediately sacrifice a sheep to the great ! in the sky. If instead this is clerical error by the shipping monkeys, be lenient with them. During Woot-off packing, things must get crazy and I'm sure the instructions were difficult to understand with all those kitty pictures on the forums.
Please let me know what I should do. I hope this letter brings a smile to your face,
Follower of Woot.
Sorry about that. We’re currently working on a solution to this issue. We will be sending out an email shortly with an explanation.
And now this arrived:
The French phase for "our bad" is "faux pas." Well, unfortunately we're emailing today to say, faux pas, GuardianBob! Faux pas!
Or wait, maybe we should say we've committed a faux pas? At any rate, what we're getting at is that we made a little boo boo with your recent order of Celltronix Stylus Pens. You ordered two 2-packs of pens, but we accidentally sent you one.
But not to worry: we're sending that second pack right away. So if your first 2-pack is looking lonely, fret not; its comrade in e-ink will be arriving shortly!
Feel free to email us if you have any questions or concerns. Until then, good bye, or as the French say, "oh reservoir!"
