Amazon.co.uk has a good sense of (unintentional) humour.
In a moment of consumer weakness I ordered three books- two were on my Wish List and one was a random pick. I wanted nearly instant gratification, so I made sure the books were stocked by Amazon.co.uk and not coming from a third-party seller. I managed to make the minimum spend amount for free shipping and felt the familiar thrill of knowing I’d be getting a brown box full o’ goodness in less than a week. (Hopefully without encountering this.)
BUT WAIT! Two of my books will be on the way immediately: “Happy Yoga” (a book that was lost in a shipment during my move from the US), and “Delivered from Distraction” (a book on ADD I’ve been wanting for ages).
The third book? Not due for 1-3 weeks, though it was said to be in stock at Amazon.co.uk…
“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Overcoming Procrastination”
The book on procrastination is due to take up to three times longer to arrive than the other two.
I find this so beautifully funny!
One thing’s for sure: I’ve got plenty of time to put off fixing my procrastination habits… up to three more weeks, thanks to Amazon! 😀
