On the 7/11/2007, after I was sure that my order had been processed, I emailed Bitch Magazine asking when I could expect to receive my first copy.
Reply: The fall issue was mailed in early November. Since it is sent by surface mail, it could take up to five weeks for delivery.
I thought this was a bit strange, as the fall issue has been on sale since September 1st, but I figured they waited until they had enough subscriptions and then did a mass post.
But now it's the 11th of December and I still haven't received a copy and it's been more or less five weeks. Additionally, I have ordered stuff from the US before and it has taken maybe two weeks to reach my little home in Sydney, Australia.
Is this bad_service or am I just being impatient?
