Yeah it would have been nice to have been able to sweep this thread under the rug and pretend it never happened. But since almost 48 hours had passed since I originally posted it, that really wasn't an option. Plus I really felt like I owed Amazon fans and Amazon themselves a sincere apology since they had held up their end of the bargain, which made the bash completely unfair. The only real question I have at this point is why it got sent to my old address in the first place? I know that the account it tied to that address by default since I haven't gone in and changed it in my preferences yet... but I did check (bought as a gift) and filled out the 'Ship to' part with my new address.
So I guess they still did deserve a little credit for the confusion. Just not the criticism about the shipping delay, as it was shipped out almost immediately and arrived before 11 am on Saturday as advertised... just not at the right place! Lol
