A while back (That's March 4th if you want to get technical) we were watching TV and saw a commercial for a CD we thought we wanted. In the immortal words of Tom Petty "The waiting is the hardest part". Or it may have been P.T. Barnum who said "There's a sucker born every minute!"
On the 26th of March I sent the following e-mail:
Still have not received this order.
If I knew it would take this long I would not have
I got this lovely response back:

Now first off only my mother gets away with calling me Charles. I have bought everything on the web from housewares, computers, and even furniture. Heck, the bedroom furniture arrived in less than 10 days.
So what is it that Sony Music and DataPakServices thinks is so special about this CD that they are holding me hostage from listening to it. I love DataPakServices motto on their website, "Experience Fulfillment!" I don't know but I am feeling less than fulfilled. They were quite efficient in transferring my $22.96 to them, how about dropping that sucker in the mail boys!
The worst part is I see the ad on TV for it all the time still and I am afraid someone is going to have to pull me off of my widescreen. I e-mailed them again but I haven't heard back, I guess we aren't on speaking terms anymore.
