Damn Sirius

Sirius Sportster ReplayWell, it’s going on damn near a week since I final­ly ordered my Sir­ius radio, direct­ly from their online shop, and I still haven’t heard boo. My order sta­tus has been set to “checked-out” since last Fri­day, but I’ve received no ship­ping con­fir­ma­tion.

I decid­ed to order direct­ly from Sir­ius because every retail out­let that I checked were sold out the day after Christ­mas… I guess a lot of us didn’t get what we want­ed under the tree, (I’m look­ing at you, mom).

And, I’m con­vinced their cus­tomer ser­vice rep­re­sen­ta­tives’ job is to bla­tant­ly lie to their cus­tomers, in order to cov­er up defi­cien­cies in order ful­fill­ment. When I called up the hot­line, the man on the oth­er end couldn’t tell me any­thing more than the web site could, how­ev­er he added that I would “prob­a­bly get the ship­ping con­fir­ma­tion in a day or two”… when I asked him how he knew this, he replied that it usu­al­ly takes 4–5 days to ship. Nev­er­mind that Howard Stern is going on-air next mon­day! (I sus­pect that they are back-ordered.)

Of course, con­sid­er­ing that every retail out­let (both online and tra­di­tion­al) are sold out of this mod­el, I’m not cross­ing my fin­gers. Good thing I paid extra for Overnight ship­ping!
