Random Shirt

Lets see if anyone reads these blogs or if the couple of grandparents that look at this thing ever get past the picture slide show at the top. I like following the shirt contests over at Sometime I even enter the contests but I haven't won yet. Well every once in a while they offer random shirts for sale. It's a really nice discount and we've gotten some real neat ones. It's kinda like gambling but with clothes. Well the other day when I ordered a few it culminated in some interesting correspondence with the customer service person named Riley.

Dear Person

My random Shirts Came Early. YAY!!

Wait. There were only two of them when I ordered three. BOO!

I received two male 2xl shirts (for my husband). I am still currently missing the WXL shirt (MINE!).

Please send me something cute soon. I still really love you guys but I don't have a shirt to wear and I think I'm not suppose to leave the house topless.

Thank You For Fixing This Really Really Fast.

Hi Amanda,

The order looks like it has two tracking numbers associated with it so it’s likely yours is shipping on it’s own because it’s too cool to be seen with your husband’s shirts. The tracking number is below but it may take 2-3 business days for it to update with valid information. If you don’t see an update to it by Wednesday, please let us know.

Riley (or what ever woot staff person gets this)

well I really didn't see an update on Wednesday, or Thursday, or today (Friday) for that matter. Has my shirt been sent? Is it invisible? Even if it is part of the Emperors New Clothes line the tracking number should works still, right? I recently checked and it is still illegal for me to walk around topless so I could really use my shirt. Unless of course you are willing to pay my legal bill.



Sorry that your shirt tracking data has not yet updated. I contacted the shirts department who stated "We make shirts?" to which I rolled my eyes and explained that it's a form of clothing people tend to wear. Of course I was laughed at afterwards and swore I'd get revenge with the help of my two trusty sidekicks, Pinky and the Brain, but that's beside the point.

Basically, the shirts department did say the shirts shipped out later than expected and the last of them did not go out until yesterday. The tracking number should still update within the next few days but if you don't see an update by Tuesday, please let us know. I know that's asking a lot to go an entire weekend without the shirt since there are laws and such...but sadly I'm not able to get the Huffy out of the garage and convince them I can bike the distance before then.

Anyway, if you can just bare with us - oh dear, not exactly the right words - um, if you can just sort of give us a little more time, we'll get a shirt to you shortly!
