I'll make sure Mums see this, dija.

We did have fun waiting together, even if she didn't quite get all the refreshing ("Command-R, Momma." "Why? I just did that.") Meanwhile, we chatted about my work day and her bridge friend and stuff, while sort of watching PBS (Frontline--never much interested me) So even if this is her one and only, at least it was good Mums-Daughter time.

Woohoo! Free Crap!

I bought something earlier today so I got the free shipping, and then I used my Happy Hour coupon to cover the cost of the bag, for a grand total of free!

Woot! Thanks Woot and ThunderThighs!

Congrats, S'Kat and KatsMother.
TT is probably happy that another first timer got a bag!

Didn’t score a Bet on Cold. That was disappointing, but at least there were new and interesting things for sale during this Woot off. Great job TT for coming up with the merchandise.

Oh, I only bought a few weird things that sold. Everything else was our buyers.

Do the buyers get competitive about whose item sold the fastest or at the highest profit margin?

Indeed, UPS shows a 6lb placeholder, although that has shown to be pretty meaningless as to the actual weight received. May be they have a boatload of grilling planks to get rid of again though.....

Dearest Bet on Cold Recipient, We are a bit pressed for time this month, please assemble your own Bet on Cold confirmation email from the following template: Paragraph One: Opening joke. Upbeat congratulations. General assurance that Bet on Cold will arrive in near-ish future. Paragraph Two: Second joke. Gentle reminder that the contents of a Bet on Cold are often woefully underwhelming. Another joke. Gentle reminder to post photos of said underwhelming contents of Bet on Cold on forum at https://www.woot.com/5ii.r Paragraph Three: General closing remarks. Additional gentle reminder about the disappointment, and the forums. Thinly veiled plea for love and support disguised as self-deprecating humor. Finishing Touches: Sincerely, [insert made up name here] Post Script: Another dumb joke.

Woot



Hope I'm not the only one that takes a swing!

Dear Bachsmonopoly,

Why did the Bet on Cold cross the road? To get to the other side! Haha! Congratulations on the Bet on Cold that's crossing the road to your house! It'll reach the other side sometime soon. You know. Days. Or weeks. Have to ask the shipper.

Shipper? Hardly know her! Maybe it's better to be weeks. The more time you have to prepare for the disappointment chicken approaching, the better you'll be. Lettin' ya down easy. You know.

As you come off your disapppoinent high (low?), remember about the forum. About the pictures. About the posting them. It's vital. Chickens cry miserable chicken tears every month for the foolish fool who doesn't post. Don't be chicken tears guy. Post.

So in closing, remember the disappointment, remember the post, and remember the chickens. Your friendly reliable presenter of actual crap is counting on you.

Sincerely,
Eleanor MacGilligutty

PS.- Farts!

I turned 50 last month. My doctor sent me a lovely note congratulating me on the milestone. And a vial with a stick and some liquid, with the instructions to poke my crap with the stick and mail the stick in the vial to the lab. What a time to be alive!

Oh. Not that kind of crap? Oops. I promise the pictures I post will be of Woot crap.

Pretend there are a bunch of badges here, since I never got around to ever adding any and don't even remember what teams I was on for those fun games and some crap bags besides the standard and then there's this lucky badge...

It's probably a text book adding the weight.

Got a bag out of sheer luck. Got on twitter and post was 5 seconds old.

I PROMISE I will post a pic this time! The last two bags I took a pic, but never made it on the interwebs.

Well, that email from woot! that had the subject line "About your order" certainly created some premature disappointment. I know it's coming, but it's just the way they phrase it, like they're about to break the bad news that you're actually getting some crap. That premature disappointment never fails to disappoint.

I just got the order confirmation email for my Bag of C. It was akin to a toot from my baby's bottom - a clear signal crap is in my future and I need to make an excuse to leave the house for an hour or so.

It has been a little while since I last crapped. My wife told me last week no more craps as I don't have a good place to store all of the boxes I already have. Instead I bought a Squatty Potty to give to her and another crap for me.
Do you think she will be amused?

Out of curiosity, at what point did this come up last night? I don't see it on the last of sales on the Sellout page in the forums.

Edit: It was the first one. Title name threw me off.

🐧Too cool to have a signature.🐧

Those Bet on Cold stats that you crave!

Can you spot the sales?



That is actually the view of the VoP. That's how many of you were waiting for your orders to go through.

Sold: 600
Canceled dupes: 2

Yes there are letters and a TT Stinker.

Why so few Bet on Colds, you ask? Two reasons...

1) We just sold a crapload of Bet on Colds in November and December. We need to catch-up, rest, etc.

2) Quite a few wooters have said that Bet on Colds are too easy to get and we're selling them all the time. Well, I can take care of that problem.


Get ready for disappointment because I think they're leaving the building today.

Totally random. I'm given a stack of shipping labels and I go through them. I try to pick people from different geographical areas though.

Btb, I forwarded y'alles' welcomes to the Momma. She asked me to thank you for her. She's not like me, doesn't get forums or the whole posting online. I've tried to explain it's rather like her and Millie talking every Tues for an hour (at least).

I haven't warned her that she's gonna have to post once her Box arrives. I'll have to do the photo stuff, but I'll make her at least dictate.

Then again, she's 88, so I'm just glad she uses her iPad as much as she does. She even correctly used "Google" as a verb to me! She'd heard that a bridge-player had died, so went online and Googled his name and found the obit--all while I was at work! She might be resistant, but she's slowly learning.
