My WTF moment this week
I almost deleted an E-Mail from DABS from my inbox as spam. The title of the E-Mail was, "dabs.com Order No SO03389387 - Official Notice of Delivery".
Just before I hit delete I remembered an order I had placed over a month ago which I had not yet received (on 02/04/13), the delivery notice, though not the goods, arrived 10/05/13. So if I am lucky the parts will arrive on Monday (13/05/13).
It is not parts I was really needing, however it will make me look elsewhere when I see something which is advertised as "On Order" on the DABS website which I really do need.
Over a month (actually nearly six weeks) is just completely ridiculous.
Going for something that is "on order" will always be luck of the draw. I've ordered a few things with that status - one has arrived into stock nigh on immediately whilst the other, like with you, has taken a relative age to appear. Personally, I don't mind waiting so long as there are regular updates - something which is not always forthcoming from Dabs.
