Usually when I order something online I pay the least possible amount for the slowest possible shipping. Because I like money better than I like getting the stuff right away.

But recently there was an exception. I was ordering a late present for Toph's birthday (March 7), and I wanted it to arrive on time, so for the first time I paid extra for overnight shipping.

Around 8PM on the evening of the 7th, I received an email from Amazon:

Your package is still on the way, but it's running late. Now expected March 8 - 10 — most packages arrive in a day.

Those assholes. “Most packages arrive in a day. Not yours though. Sucker!”
