Well, got tired of the silence, so I e-mailed Woot.com again, wishing them to just cancel the whole damn thing, and amazingly enough I got a response eight minutes later...
...To the e-mail I sent a week ago!
Too late, it's already in the mail. Oh, and we won't charge you the $5 for expedited shipping (gee thanks).
Well, Dad got it last night, and his reaction?
"Well that would have been cool -- A WEEK AGO!"
Thanks Woot for a near hit for Christmas. No longer can I trust expedited shipping or anything else you promise. You have gone from "hip Amazon / Think Geek" down to "Fred's WWWorld of WWWonder WWWebsight".
Oh, thanks for my $5 back.
