cAUSE I HAVE! 

 

I preordered a book on Barnes and Noble. The book was Flashback, by Shannon Messenger. The website CLEARLY stated that the book would arrive on November 6th. Today, my mom’s phone got an email from Barnes and Noble that lets you track the package. The email said the book would arrive on the 10th. I have been COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS and honestly I’m not able to wait any longer. I’ve waited for months, and betrayal hurts. And it gets worse? On the 10th, my family will be out of state. I’ll have to wait even longer. 

 

I have currently gone through 3 of the stages of grief already. 

 

1) Denial: 

Checking the email. “This can’t be right” about 50 times. Exchanging stories with Mom and shoving it to the back of my mind. 

 

2) Anger: 

Yelling, screaming, nearly crying because my tiny body cannot hold the amount of rage coursing through my veins. Ranting about WHY WOULD I EVEN PREORDER IT since IT CAME OUT TODAY and YOU JUST PAY EXTRA AND WAIT LONGER and IF I HAD JUST WAITED THEN I COULD HAVE GONE TO BARNES AND NOBLE AND BOUGHT IT NOW! 

 

3) Bargaining: 

Finding the help number on the website to leave a complaint, hopefully manage to get it earlier. Rehearsing what I would say when I called it. 

 

And now I’m on stage 4) Depression: 

crying whenever I have to tell the story again. No more rage. Just numb and sad. Stubbornly digging in my heels from progressing to Acceptance.

 

I don’t want to accept this. I can’t accept this. If I do, that’s like saying it’s okay for this to happen. It’s not okay for them to lie to their customers. And it’s not okay to betray people. The only reason I preordered it in the first place was for the exclusive story you get from preordering, but then I learned that the second a new book comes out, the short story from last year will be posted on the author’s personal website. So it’s all for nothing. And that’s the worst part of all.

Thank you for your reason and practicality, Fafnir. This was written in a lot of emotion, and I won’t pretend I’m not salty.

I hate Barnes and Noble because they put small indie book stores out of business. Support your local book store!!

Back when I read the Warriors series, this happened to me... it was the first book of the newest set. I forgot what it’s called, though.

 

 

I feel you, buddy.

I'm sorry. I know companies mess up like that--sometimes big-time. I know, because I'm still the 141st hold on a book from the library...that I placed a hold on last year. From what I can recall, I was in that spot that exact day as well, xD.

 

Okay, so that was probably the worst story to say in front of this, xD, but maybe you could borrow the book from a friend, or from a local library? Fortunately, libraries don't mess up that often...xD.

 

Sorry, still doing homework at 00:38, and I'm kind of nervous. When I'm nervous, I tend to have a really bad sense of humor. :/

The book came out on the 6th, so it’s highly unlikely that any library will have it so soon. The only irl friend I know of who also reads the series also preordered it, so she won’t be able to help either. We could try going to FedEx and annoying them until they give it up, but my family’s pretty busy this week.

The FedEx plan is out because I have just learned that the FedEx they sent the book to is in an entirely different state
