And Speaking of Numbers...

Here's a little brain-teaser for you.

Suppose Sally orders a replacement cord for her laptop on January 11, which is a Friday. She pays an extra $13 for two-day shipping. When will Sally recieve her cord?

A. On the 13th, because two-days means "TWO DAYS"
B. On the 15th, because two-days means "TWO DAYS, EXCLUDING WEEKENDS"
C. On the fourth of NEVER because the laptop replacement cord people have a severe case of THE SUCKS.

I assume this is a rhetorical question...

Call me crazy, but I'm guessing the answer is "C"....:)

Good grief! No way do you still not have a laptop cord! Girl, that just ain't right.

Damn. That sucks! It's too bad that getting a refund of your $13 won't really make a difference because you need the freakin' cord and having the money, but no cord, really isn't that useful. I hate it when there's just no acceptable solution.

Did you buy the cord with a credit card? Is there any way to just cancel the order and have the money credited back, and go to Radidio Shack of City of Circus or something?
I would feel inclined to announce the name of the company I couldn't get good service from...say...on a blog??

You have to read the fine print...it always says somewhere "after processing time" which I have found can be up to 10 business days.
