At least try to spell it correctly please.

Gitchigumi, or you can use Longfellow’s spelling: Gitchie Gumee.

Your spelling hurts my brain!

fucking amazon.

I ordered two bearings on the 5th, they still haven't shipped.
in stock, fulfilled by amazon, prime.
Current delivery date is estimated as the 23rd.

I ordered the exact same bearings from the exact same link (clicked on it from my order) this morning.
guaranteed delivery sunday.

Amazon won't cancel the prior order. "advanced stages of shipping"
well theyve been in that stage since wednesday, when I asked them where the fuck my bearings were that should have been delivered tuesday.

amazon prime is becoming a big fail these days. Nothing guaranteed. "It will use two day shipping" Well what good does that do me when it takes a week to leave the warehouse?
I'm not renewing when it's up.
I can get everything I order on amazon cheaper elsewhere, the only reason to order from them was shit getting in my hands in two days reliably, but that's a problem these days.

I hear you.
Home Depot is just as bad.
I ordered 4 pieces that I needed to mount the outside unit on my mini split AC/ heat pump.
Ordered them all on the same order.
2 weeks ago! The order said 48 to 72 hours.
The delivery trucks have been coming in every day this week.
USPS with one item deliverd Monday, UPS with another on Tuesday, Fed Ex another piece yesterday. And the forth and largest today on UPS again today.

Hell, I ordered them 2 weeks ago so I could have the AC/ Heat system working before the cold snap hit us last night.
95 degrees here yesterday, 42 this morning.
headed for 30 in a day or 2.

And wouldn't you know it. The parts came in in reverse order from what I could have put together and prepped for the next piece.

yeah, these were for the pumps in a zero turn.

so since it's taken forever I had to mount the belly mower back on the tractor, cause grass ain't care about your shipping problems.

then I'll just be taking it off, since zero turn does everything better and the belly mower is a giant PITA since it's wider than the tractors track.

so there's 4 hours of my life in doing mower deck shit because amazon.

Now that they have their own delivery drivers it's even worse. I got into a big argument with support because their lazy fucking driver kept driving past my address at 4:30 and as I'm standing on the sidewalk I see the asshole drive by. My phone dings and I see this shit:

Hi Matt,
Sorry we missed you. We tried to deliver your package today but didn't want to leave it unattended.
We will try again. If you have delivery instructions, please tell us where to leave your package.

BULLSHIT asshole. Your lazy fucking no good ass didn't even slow down. i have instructions and you didn't bother to even try.

This is the 4th time in the last month.

To be fair... if I saw you on your porch, I'd do the same.

Amazon has just stopped trying here... I get that email all the time... or.. "we tried, you weren't home" on a day both my wife and I are working from home.

I'm going to bet that it was the fault of Amazon's shitty mapping/routing software and not the laziness of the driver. Undelivered packages have to be returned to the depot which is usually out of the way and extra miles for the Flex driver

My wife had a business customer call her when we lived in Sammamish. The customers office was located in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The customer had problems pronouncing Sammamish, understandable, and made a comment that she was not used to having to pronounce Indian based names. My wife replied “You live in Minnetonka, Minnesota...”. The customer didn’t actually know it was not an “American” name. Most people cant spell for shit, myself included, but they are also clueless to the origins of the words they cant spell.

Edit: pet peeve. People that were born and raised in Washington and pronounce it Worshington. Where the fuck is the god damn O&R in the fucking spelling that makes you think they need to be there or pronounced for that matter.

That's my dad. He only lived there until he was 5 and it stuck. He also worshes his clothes in the worshing machine. Other than that he has a normal west coast accent.

FedEx is terrible here. We have a 2’x4’ white sign with blue and red writing on it that says please leave packages here, its an old church pew thats well covered and at the head of our driveway. It got to the point that they would go past the sign open the gate that says do bot open or deliver packages past this point turn around for package delivery and read sign. This means you FedEx. UPS & USPS have zero issues with following directions. Well we got nominated to host part of a neighborhood happy hour and we took down the unfriendly signs and just had please leave packages here on the white board. Stupid mother fucking FedEx just walks right fucking past the sign and drops the package and right the doorbell waking the kid up.

I now will have to put the fuck you signs back up and then probably wait for the driver and make sure they read it. Same fucking driver as ever just apparently stuck on stupid. Our UPS driver say the sign on the white board when we first put it up and said “Let me guess this is for the other parcel delivery company? A lot of other people in town have similar signs.”

Driver admitted to it. Now he's throwing our packages at the security guard's desk not getting a signature and walking out. He's going to be looking for a job next week.
