Fsckers

I am not a happy camper at the moment. After 3 days of incessantly reloading the order page for my brand new Wii bundle (for which my credit card has already been charged), this is the email I got this evening:

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for shopping at Buy.com.

At Buy.com we strive to provide the widest assortment of high-quality products at the lowest prices on earth. However, sometimes circumstances beyond our control affect our selection.

We were recently informed that the item listed below from order #XXXXXXXX is no longer available from that supplier. Please accept our sincere apologies for this inconvenience.

What!? It was in stock when I ordered it 3 days ago. It took 2 days of order “Processing” to get to “Sent to Warehouse” status. After that, it didn’t take the warehouse long to dash my hopes of having a Wii any time in the near future. I was soooo ready to play Zelda next week. Buy.com is going to have a hard time earning my business ever again.
