I don't know how many times I've thought about writing in for something stupid (like an official piece of woot business stationery)...and then figured that I'd be shot down.

I've learned my lesson. If you want something (done) around here...beg.

Oh, it's not dying. Once the letter items ship the thread will perk back up again.

Dear TPW,

Wow! It has been like forever (never really)since I heard from you. I was wondering if you get a chance to send me those items I was looking for? In case you don't remember I will list them for you:
1-Ipod touch -refurb is okay
1-Giant PEZ dispenser
1-Free pass to buy a Bowl of Cereal without having to fight the servers.

I hope all is well and you will be able to send these out soon.

Thanks!

Yes I know. I'm just preparing myself for the eventual death after the pallets/giant electronics get delivered and reported on.

There only have been 2 so far, unless you are counting Jeus' Letter, or unless you actually got one and are squirreling it away.

EDIT: clarification

Woots since 9/2/2008: Woots 34 (Barrels of Crud 8), Kids 3, Shirts 2, Wine 1, Sellout 2. = a bunch of useless/useful items.

THANK YOU WOOT!

This was my first Baloney On Caraway and was totally worth it:


I actually wanted the Home Weather Station (missed it before it was gone), and I actually need a new phone system, so this is a really nice surprise. The boxes are a bit beat up on the outside but the interior packaging looks mostly new. THANK YOU WOOT!!!

BAG OF CASH

As promised, here are the pics. The envelope is not shown, because aside from the writing, there is something special about the envelope that only the true owner will know.

I have not yet heard back from Woot, but I do have an automated case number. Hopefully they are checking with the warehouse people before responding.

When my friend heard what happened he said, "Apparently what happened is that some Woot worker is dyslexic. The packing slip said Book of Crap, but he saw "Bag of CASH."

So I'm hereby officially calling it my Bag of Cash!

JEUS GOT A LETTER!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, sure did. A genuine THREEPIECEWOOT letter!!

Remember him begging for one back here!

Well, apparently, TPW is totally awesome, because he actually took the time to write one and overnight it to Jeus!!!



The letter reads:

Dear Jeus,

This letter is per your request dated 06/07/10. we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you, however all of your items fit in the box and nothing needed to be shipped separately.

Thanks for your understanding,
Threepiecewoot


The reference number stated : per your request
and the bottom of the shipping page states : nothing to see here.

Jeus totally wants to thank Woot and especially threepiecewoot for this incredible piece of Woot memorabilia!!!

Jeus also states that he will have this framed before Woot's birthday and will upload more pics then.

THANK YOU THREEPIECEWOOT!!!

Interesting that it contained $2 bills...you don't see those at all, other than the ones that people have stashed in a drawer for keepsakes.

And it as arrived!

listed at 4.2 lb (seemed lighter than that)

1 black 6-pack holder/cooler thing (most of smell removed - probably taken by the SmartPost(?) folks )

1 Autolite (yes it is lite, and I think it will also function as a light … perfect because I have a head light out on my truck. A little duck tape and …)

1 WYR desktop calendar (now if I can win that time machine on eBay I'll be able to enjoy the 6.4 months I missed)

1 NETGEAR RP614 Web Safe Router - Router + 4-port switch. Refurb but in box with what looks like all the parts. (Now I can have multiple computers refreshing the Woot site at the same time! )

15 bags of Texas air. None dead, but ½ appear to be very sick. And …. Letters!! Not just one! All the bags of Texas air had letters on them!!!

Thanks o' Woot Gods. [bowing toward the Carrollton holy land]

Actually, I work at a bank during the day, we have people ask for them all the time. Some people like to give them as gifts, sure, but some people like to carry them around and use them because they say it looks like 'funny money' and people always look twice when they see it.

I thought so too -- I haven't seen an actual $2 bill in years.

I do hope they respond soon, this is wearing me down. I feel.. nervous and jumpy. My stomach does flip flops every time I see or think about the money. Last night I dreamed that the FBI showed up at my door asking about the money that I had "stolen" from Woot.com. I tried to explain what had happened but they didn't believe me and said they had video of me stealing the money from the woot warehouse. This being a dream, I then had to go on this big adventure to prove my innocence. Silly dreams.
