Hello Cthulhu

(no subject)

I ordered Street Fighter Alpha 3 for Game Boy Advance, Factory Sealed, from dvds123.com for $27.43 after shipping. I ordered this Thursday. I got an email today (Monday) saying that they don't have it in stock. Ok, fine. I search around again and on Amazon.com their New & Used section for my game contains a Factory Sealed Version ot it. The seller: dvds123dotcom, Price:$34.82 + shipping.

EDIT:
I sent them an email asking why and here is the response:

Martin,

Our item are enlisted on Amazon ,Ebay, Half, Americart automatically once we do our weekly updates on either Thursday/Fridays Items that we do not have in stock are removed on Amazon, Ebay, Half and Americart. That is why our items are enlisted that way, Due to many items sold on these websites items are enlisted even though we dont have the item on hand, and when people order them and we dont have them available there are immediately given a refund. sorry but this is the easiest way for us to get our items on these websites asap.

Teresa


So wait if I ordered this on Thursday morning wouldn't have been removed already? I am tempted to file a complaint.

FOLLOW-UP: Kicked out of a Denny's

About two weeks after the incident, a friend of mine (who knew what had happened) went back there. Apparently, both the manager and the waitress were no longer working there. A few people left the restaurant after I had, and it looks as though somone else had called corporate and complained. As far as legal action is concerned, I didn't have any visible burn marks after a day or so, so it would more or less be my word against theirs. And with no apparent damage, any lawsuit would end up being enough work for me that it wouldn't have been worth annoying them (plus, they'd likely try to countersue for the food I walked out on and disturbing the other patrons). At least they got canned, so the system slmost works.

Thanks to all for your suggestions.
