So, the thing.

Day 1: Me: "I need this book. It's for my customers. They've ordered $600,000 of stuff, and I can't ship $120,000 of that without this book. PLEASE get me this book. I need it in three weeks."
Day 2: Them: "All right, we can do that."
Day 30: Them: "Oh, did you actually want that book? We thought you were speaking hypothetically."
Day 31: Me: "Well, not so much hypothetically as urgently. Can you get me that book?"
Day 32: Them: "No, we haven't printed it yet."
Day 33: Me: "Print that fucker."
Day 34: Them: "You mean, you do want the book?"
Day 35: Me: "Please don't make me beg."
Day 75: Them: "We sent you that book."
Day 76: Me: "To our warehouse in Missouri?"
Day 77: Them: "You wanted it in Missouri? We sent it to Dallas."
Day 82: Me: "Dallas says, no book."
Day 83: Them: "We sent it, yes we did."
Day 86: Me: "No. No, you didn't."
Day 88: Warehouse: "We...uh...found something."
Day 89: Me: "Was it 3000 books about the Berlin Wall, shipped from China?"
Day 90: Warehouse: "Not quite." *sends JPG*
Day 90: Me: "Dear god."
Day 90: Warehouse: "Did you want 780 copies of the 2008 'I Love Lucy' calendar?"
Day 90: Me: "Sure, what the hell."

And that's more or less what happened.

JTFC!
Was there a language barrier or is the Lucy Calendar item number sadly close to Berlin wall topics? lol
Gotta love those glitches.
We ordered some Disney shelves and got the cheapest, ugliest sea shell sop dispenser we had ever seen, and it smelled like pure acetone.
But, I remember sending people dog crap they never ordered. It makes sense to the people in shipping, it's everyone else who says, "WTF? I ordered a bouncing ball for my GSD and got a pug butt plug???"

Re: JTFC!
*raises eyebrows* Do they SELL pug buttplugs? Do I really want an answer to this question, or would that just ruin the mystery?

Sounds familiar. Are these the same guys who shipped my Utilikilts to Midland? Oh yes, I'm still waiting for 26 of those Utilikilts I ordered back in JUNE.

Possibly, but customer disservice is a proud international tradition!
