Just got my Bocks of Cherries....

16.2" x 12.6" x 10.7" 6.1 lbs.

I was out of town on business when it was delivered on Tuesday here in SC, so my family took it upon themselves to shake the beejeebers out of the BeeOhCee to try to determine whether there were any Sansas in it.

I flew back into town early today but had some other things to do for work throughout the day, so the box got continued attention (and repeated shakings) until I got back home this afternoon.

With a little apprehension, I approached the box after finding out from my youngest daughter that 'something might be broken' because there's more rattling around inside now than there was originally on Tuesday.

Uh, oh....

Upon opening the box, I found:

  • 5 bags of Texas air (2 broken)
  • a navy blue insulated lunch bag
  • a Would You Rather desktop calendar
  • an Autolite SpaceGlo Utility Lite (me likes)
  • a refurb purple Shark steam cleaner (wife likes)

The additional things rattling around in the box were the attachments to the Shark to clean different items. The box for the Shark was already open and the accessory item bag was slit open, so all it took was a bit of shaking to free them from their confines to explore the rest of the BeeOhCee.

All in all, a rather nice haul, since we can use all of the items. Thanks, Woot godz!

No one in the warehouse/anywhere is missing any cash and we have no idea why there would be money in your Bowl of Cereal if indeed there was as we did not put it there.



Thank you for the reply - I feel better knowing that you asked.

I also have NO idea how the money got in the box either. This has all been very bizarre. I assure you that this is NOT a hoax, I honestly did receive an envelope with $609 in my Bowl of Cereal.

Like I said in another post, I will hold on to it for 30 days, just in case.

Character is what you do when no one is looking.

This is the first time in my life I had the thought "I hope I got a monkey." I predict it will not be the last time.

Random and delicious, thanks Woot!

I rate this crap:



Monkeys always get good reviews. I'm tempted to make it 4 lights since you have a "rare" monkey.

North Hills area... I looked at houses near the airport (was quite the place to be a dozen years back) when I first moved here, but decided I did not want the airport noise. So, now I get the high school band practicing across the street.

I would have to agree with you on this one. One of the first things I did was get a good smell of my lunch box because of all the comments on here and it really didn't smell like anything.

Not going to even go there, as long as you know how ridiculous it is that you don't open them. (Seriously, HOW COULD YOU NOT OPEN THEM?)

Don't let NightGhost convince you that you need an intervention, involving chocolate syrup. IT'S A TRAP!!!!

I currently have 7 unopened woot boxes at home.

I buy crap I have no use for. And, how many monkeys does one need at a time anyway? They are sleeping waiting for service later.

Well congratulations on your new TV, then! And you can feel good about trying to do the right thing, too, and stop being haunted by G-men in your dreams.

EDITED TO ADD: I think I'd have had the same official response as Woot!'s if it were my company. I wouldn't want it getting out that I'd sent cash as part of a randomized item order system, even if it hadn't been intentional. WAY too many legal issues. If I did look into it and found the responsible party, he'd get the envelope back but the sanctions I'd have to take to ensure that sort of thing didn't happen again probably wouldn't be worth the $609 to the employee. Best to say that officially that sort of thing is absolutely, completely against company policy, send out an internal memo stating that not quite anything can go into random sack orders, and be satisfied that $609 is, in the grand scale, a cheap price for the employee to have paid for an important lesson.
