I ordered some stuff from Amazon and all the stuff that wasn’t actually Amazon but was one of their affiliates went out right away and was guaranteed before Christmas. But the actual Amazon stuff? The books? Oh no, they said, we can’t get that to you before Christmas.
But, I thought, I live in Nashville. The two biggest places you ship from are within a day’s drive of my house. If you get it out the door this week, I’ll have it before Christmas.
And I just got word that the items have shipped, from Memphis. Still no guarantee, according to Amazon, that they’ll get here before next Thursday. It makes me laugh.
I remember the good ole days when I used to buy all my school books from Amazon and back then, that was enough to get you a Christmas gift from them. I believe it was a travel mug.
And yes, kids, we had to walk up hill both ways in the snow to use it.
