Once again, Woot ucks everything fup when it comes to shipping.
I have purchased every TF300 deal since November, even surviving The Great Shipping Delay of November 21, 2012 (Never Forget, Never Forgive). But being a good Christian in public, I purchased this month's TF300 deal, looking to allow Woot one more shot at giving me the treatment and rights guaranteed by God and the Constitution.
And once again, like a child trying to catch the refrigerator light gnomes, I am disappointed again and again.
It took 48 hours for Woot.com to receive my order, process said order, package the order, place a shipping label upon the order, and send it off through FedEx (Federal Express, no less; I'm not surprised the Obama administration has something to do with this).
Simply unacceptable. I paid $5 for shipping. Five American-minted, American-made, American-signed dollars. Because unlike Woot.com, I support my country, the troops, and jobs for real Americans.
So while driving my Nissan Xterra, shortly after filling up with sweet Middle Eastern crude, wearing clothes made in Bangladesh, imagine my disgust when my Samsung phone received a text alert that my order had only just been shipped. That extra five bucks I paid on top of my already-discounted cost should have guaranteed no less than one-day service, and expedited shipping to boot. Instead, here we are again, a day late and five dollars short.
I don't know why I even shop at Woot.com anymore. They clearly don't care about my needs, thinking only of themselves and not the customer. American customers like myself, who give trillions of tax dollars a year into the national budget that goes towards subsidizing third-rate online snake-oil salesmen (sorry salespeople, for you Obama-lovers) that can't seem to manage to ship out thousands of orders within a couple of hours.
When I file my 1040EZ tax return this year and pay $0 after deductions (actually getting a sizable refund, in fact), Woot.com can rest easy knowing that they won't see a dime of it.
Unless they have TF700 + dock on sale. Not that I want one. I just need to prove how wholly incompetent they are.
Thanks for nothing, Woot.com.
