I'm starting to consider just cancelling this year's Spectral Lore album. Amazon has been a total shit show with it. I've had it on order since March 9th. They said they'd have it to me by April 2nd. I didn't expect it then since I knew it wasn't actually released until April 23rd, but it's now June 2nd and it's still an absolute no show.

^ I've had problems like that with Amazon myself. They finally told me after a year that they couldn't get it! Given up on it a long time before that of course.

Yeah and I expect that's what they'll do with this.

At this point I wonder if they are even making any effort to acquire it. 

The annoying thing is that it's sitting in stock direct from the label, so it's not as if its sold out at source.

Amazon fucking up again.

Had some blu-rays arrive yesterday. One smashed. 

Replaced the one which came today. Also smashed.

Was it their typical card envelope with no padding?

Yep. 

And I find out they won't replace an item more than once. So I'm either stuck with it or return and wait for a refund in 5-7 days upon receipt of return.

Another Amazon shitshow today:

  • Delivery driver doesn't even knock (that I heard from my room, and my room is right above the front door)
  • Package gets left in plain sight on the doorstep.
  • Delivery driver marks parcel as being 'handed to resident'.
If I hadn't been online at the time and saw the delivery confirmation email relatively quickly I wouldn't have known the package was there and anything could have happened to it.

Amazon's answer is that I didn't specify a 'safe space' in the event that I don't answer the door. 

Ignoring the fact that it's pretty hard to answer the door at the right moment if the driver doesn't knock, the package could have easily fit through the letterbox, just like countless packages before it have.

I've had Amazon packages left at the front door. We have a big bush that blocks direct view of it from some angles but can still be seen from the road at one spot. I'm waiting for the day when I get home and it's gone.
