My Bountiful Overflowing Cornucopia.. has not shipped.... Hoping it just is taking a long time to load up that pallet......
It's not just a matter of pulling a roomba off the shelf and sending it out via the slowest possible method.
No. They have to sweep the floors, clean out the closets, scrape out the grease traps in the employee break room, scour the bathrooms, and then box up all that crap to mail out to us.
Look at it this way, woot wants to make your crap the crappiest experience possible.
To that end, they are in no hurry to ship it. But when they finally do, be prepared for an excruciatingly crappy period of frustrated anticipation as you track your package criss-crossing the country in seeminly insane directions. And when it finally arrives(assuming you are still alive) and you open the badly mangled box, you will be awash in the most crappy flood of disappointment, as item after useless, worthless crappy item is unboxed. You will come to the ugly realization that all that time, and the $8 invested in this venture will never be recouped, and that you should begin to make apologies to your family and friends with whom you could have spent it instead.
But wait! There! Underneath the bags of sweet, Woot warehouse scented texas air, wedged in the flaps of the box bottom... is that an ipod touch? It is! Oh joy, maybe not everything is a complete loss! You extract it from the box, un-stick it from a piece of filthy packing tape, and flip it over only to find the screen broken due to poor packing, and vigorous, enthusiastic smartpost mishandling. A truly crappy experience.
This, my friends, is what the Big ol' Cornucopia is all about.
