I asked if they'd meet me halfway and we could split the shipping. Which, hello, is a pretty huge concession. No... they can't do that, but they can knock $7 off. They'd lose that $7.00, and that's so much... blah blah. Yeah. I told them I'd think about it until Monday. We ended with mutual, 'yeah, I understand where you're coming froms.'
I'm not sure I really need to think until Monday.
That's just bad customer service. I will pay up to $10 more, which is more than I ought to have to, and if they aren't willing to take that, screw them. THEIR error.
(But... I do SO covet the thing. *covetcovetcovet* Maybe $70 worth.)
YAY. She called back again, found a cheaper shipping method that would only cost $10 more and is willing to split the difference. *paypals $5 quite cheerfully...*
