(The Consumerist)   Dear Consumerist: Amazon had the audacity to deliver my package one day after I ordered it instead of three. The delivery driver woke me up to deliver my package, and I'm so indignant I'm never accepting weekend packages again   (consumerist.com) divider line 132

LOL

Amazon is awesome when it comes to delivery. Gave me an estimate of two days, was there the very next day.

If you have the cash laying around definitely got get Amazon Prime

What makes it worse is that I can't hold down the "A" key on my keyboard and have it continuously put "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" on the screen. Seriously, FARK. Cut this shiat out.

Actually I too hate being woken up so early when there's no anticipated reason for it.

last time I ordered from them, the gave me a delivery date of 10 days... got the package in 3. was happy enough.

/ used cheapest delivery option, and not from the amazon vendor.
// prime was nice while i had it for free... but i don't order from amazon more than once a year... so not really worth it to me.

Do people sit around imagining problems just so they have something to write to the Consumerist about?
 
2012-08-22 10:22:00 AM
Can we get a moratorium on Consumerist links until they stop being about whiny, self-absorbed buttholes?

How loud is this guy's doorbell that his neighbors are losing sleep over it?
 
2012-08-22 10:23:42 AM
Honestly, I get this guy's beef. It sucks to be woken up early on a weekend, and... well, it's a $23 package. In my area, they'd just leave that on your doorstep and go on their merry way.

Still, I think I'd be over it fairly quickly, and not calling Amazon and bawling them out or getting pissy on the internet.

When a dog makes a mess on the floor, you shove its nose in it.

This poster needs to be forced to read his complaint again and again until the shame sinks in. If, like so many morons these days, his shame gland no longer functions, we can whack him in the face with a rolled-up newspaper while screaming "You're a tool" at him until it kicks in.

That is the 3rd saddest thing I've ever read on Fark.

Good God, what a whiny piece of crap. I wish I knew this guy. It would give me great pleasure to slap him.

Can we do a Kickstarter to buy out and shut down The Consumerist? I feel like this might be the most successful Kickstarter in history, and win someone a Nobel Prize.

Bullshiat. It roused him AND his neighbors?

What a pussy. And an immature one at that. Whining about being awakened at 8am? Really? Grow up, Junior. Life sucks and then you die.

BalugaJoe: I bet she also voted for Todd Akin.


Well there were/are women who argue that females shouldn't be allowed to vote, hold property and similar. Back during the woman's rights movement they were extremely vocal. I suspect we'll be seeing that kind rise back up and get vocal in a few more years. Amusingly they'll probably use their vote just to try and lose their vote.
 
2012-08-22 10:29:01 AM
Why is it that all consumerist articles are bullshiat white people problems?

I BOUGHT THIS TV 6 YEARS AGO AND RODE IT TO DEATH, I DEMAND A FULL REFUND.

THEY DELIVERED MY PACKAGE EARLY, AND WOKE ME UP - THE AUDACITY.

The entitlement in all this makes my generation seem humble.

This. I will often come into these threads and white-knight the Consumerist and their cranky bloggers - consumers need an artificially amplified voice.
But this is just f**king stupid.

2012-08-22 10:33:28 AM
So have people finally realized what a joke Consumerist is and just decided to go into 24/7 troll mode?
 
2012-08-22 10:34:20 AM
You all know this "guy" is actually a girl. Called Laura. Laura Northrup. It's right up there at the top of the article. Where one typically finds the authors name.

/just sayin'
 
2012-08-22 10:34:30 AM
The best way to anger a customer is to set an expectation and not fulfill it. That's what happened here. While most of us would be happy with faster delivery, this customer was not. This customer wanted the shipment on the promised date, not before. It's an unusual complaint, but valid.
 
2012-08-22 10:34:46 AM
Yeah, this guy is a douche. That being said, "If you live in an area where OnTrac delivers Amazon packages, put some pants on. it's entirely possible that your local delivery person could be at your door any minute now." fark that. If he shows up at my house at 8 on a Saturday and I'm not wearing pants, that's his problem. I've got enough redneck in me to answer the door wearing nothing but a pair of holey tighty-whities.

I think the "guy" we're talking about is the fellow "Richard" who received the package...

Cantankerous Gnome: How loud is this guy's doorbell that his neighbors are losing sleep over it?


Actually, it wasn't the doorbell, it was the OnTrac driver doing donuts in their yard, screaming like that pig in the Geico commercials. I'm not sure why they do that, but apparently it's part of the service if you read the terms.

Just ship it with FedEx....

FedEx will hold your package an extra day to be 'on time' if it happens to arrive at your area sorting facility a day early. Says it right on the tracking information.

Well, you know, I think they give you an "ESTIMATED" delivery date. Some times it's faster, some times it's slower. That's why it's called an estimate.

Don't call black people swine. It's culturally insensitive to the muslim-ness.

I didn't think it was possible but this is even worse than the "Post office is stealing my Starbucks coupons" consumerist from yesterday.
 
2012-08-22 10:37:51 AM
I now believe Consumerist only posts this stuff to troll for clicks and comments. Why Consumer Reports bought these jokers I'll never know.

"Dear Consumerist: Amazon delivered my package right on time, instead of two days early like that other guy. I am seriously annoyed! I was all dressed and waiting for him Saturday morning, and the delivery guy had the audacity to saunter up two days later and hand me my package as if nothing were amiss. I am never buying from Amazon again!"

I thought you were going to say a kick starter to have random packages delivered to this guy every Saturday at 6am.

Consumerist has clearly crossed over into satire.

I want to go to his house and ring the doorbell and leave a flaming bag of hipster poop there. Do you think I can order hipster poop from Amazon?
