This shipment will be delivered by USPS.



I looked on the USPS website, and I can't find any 21-day shipping methods. Not only that, but for the shipping I paid ($4.99), it should be here in two days from anywhere in the U.S.


Yeah, I know it's all just a big ploy to make people think they need the two-day shipping if they want their stuff in any sort of remotely timely manner, but still. WTF people?!

I have discovered that SOME web sites list these ridiculously long times till delivery. Some places you'll get it just as fast with regular delivery. Other site don't SHIP it until nearer the ridiculously long delivery time. You're not paying for shipping. You're paying for how soon it gets shipped.

It's all a scam.
