I mean this in the most respectful way I can- but this is why you have patience. You gained what- a few days, maybe a week?
I ordered with Amazon on the 2nd of March. Early.
Last Friday, Amazon told me they would have my camera to me Tuesday the 20th. I was told this over the phone.
The item did not ship on Monday. It did not arrive Tuesday. Amazon, even yesterday, had zero info or estimate as to when they would get my order to me. Other people on these forums have been able to walk into local stores and buy their cameras. Why would I wait for Amazon after being lied to? Why give them $3500?
I called crutchfield and spoke with Dean. He said that he had a 5D body in stock. He pulled it from inventory for my order and told me it would arrive Thursday. I said sweet, done deal.
Amazon = no clue. Crutchfield = Thursday.
Today I find out that Dean at Crutchfield really did not have the item he told me he did. He did not pull anything from inventory and the item sold out before my order processed.
What exactly am I supposed to be patient about? Being lied to? Trying to pay people thousands of dollars for giving me nothing but incorrect information?
Seems that every vendor I have placed an order with lied to me regarding when the order I submitted would arrive.
If people actually did what they said they would do, it would be no problem. But I have zero patience for people who give false information. Whether they do not understand how to do their jobs, how their system works, or straight up provide me with false promises, I am not going to patiently wait to pay for incompetence.
