But... but... they had a TV show.
Sorry to hear it. They should be better about bitching to their carriers then, or just sending out items immediately. Hope things improve for you. I wonder if I just live closer to a major distribution center or something. I do tend to have great service with all things Amazon.

Definitely bitch to their customer service and threaten leaving Prime. Be businesslike but stern. I've had great success bitching about the few things I've disliked with them over the years. Once they gave me back all I'd paid for the order and I didn't have to send back the thing that was damaged. Anyway, don't give up till you write to them and delineate everything. Use order numbers and specifics. Hope you have some better luck! We've had completely different experiences with them, it seems.
Wow, I just got rep for a 14-year-old post.

No updated delivery date. Just "delayed.' Seems like every other order I place winds up with delays. Think I'll be doing my holiday shopping elsewhere.
Are those listed as Prime shipping items? Not everything is eligible for Prime shipping. I've never had issues with Prime. It's the third-party sellers I typically have issues with, and Amazon can't do much about that. Love my Prime!

True. He does kinda steal the show.

It's one of my favorite movies. I can watch it and rewatch it just about any time.

Now word will get out. Next year have plenty of truffles.

That was a movie quote. Here is another from the same film:

"I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is."
I figured it was a movie quote. Frankly, with the first one I would have said Blade Runner, but now that second one doesn't sound like Blade Runner. Sounds more like an Alien movie quote.
