Are we getting the run around?

Are we getting the run around?

Have you noticed T-shirt estimate delivery dates based on email correspondence keep changing?

1. 4-6 weeks – The week of April 27th, 2009
2. Email sent from lotus on May 7th states by the end of the month. – May 30th, 2009
3. Chocolatehandles’ message dated June 5th. states by next week – June 12th, 2009
4. Sebastian’s message from Lotus June 16th, states by end of next week – June 27th, 2009

If I email them next week, do you think I will get a July estimate? Or should I naively believe that this time will be different?

Good business - If they say it'll take around 28 days for delivery and it turns up in 2 weeks = satisfied customers.

Bad business - If they keep breaking promises and months later people still haven't received their goods = Well, just read all the threads!

Even if the T-shirt is cool, it would have been nice to be able to wear it when lotusflow3r was a current project. At this rate it'll be going straight into a drawer, next to my NewPower Soul sneakers and Jughead coffee mug.

falloff

I moved to a new place in June, and, knowing Prince's track record, figured that the shirt would never make it to my old place 6 weeks after signing up. I had the foresight to use my parent's address expecting just that, but I never thought it'd be this far behind.

Honestly, I didn't even really care about the shirt, but given the content offered up on the site so far, I'll take every cent of value I can get from this site, regardless of what it is now...

If we didn't get the message about exclusive first week content I would have just said screw the shirt, I'll wait to see what other members say about the site before joining...

lol Boy, he sure pulled a fast one on us.

falloff falloff I hear you about Ebay; I used to sell on there about 10 years back. If someone did not pay me for something that they bought from me, I was not shy at all about leaving negative feedback and letting them know that I was not very happy with them. giggle

I think Prince has been ironing on the T-Shirt transfers himself.This is the cause the delay.

He had to cut around the shapes of the disco jellyfish which only added to the delay.

Whats going on ?

It is obvious that Lotusflow3r is not a priority to Prince, this is such a shame cos it could have been a buzz'n funky plantarium.

Instead it's lifeless. Guess he's got his mind on other plans.

Whatnever .....life is too short to be waiting on "pie eye in the sky".

If you want value for $ join the Cloud Appreciation Society - no end of updates and U just have to look up ! biggrin
