I'm sure they don't think I'm going to pay for the shipping of their mistake, but what if they sort of accidentally sent it even though it was cancelled?
If they had it drop-shipped from another location the cancel notification may not have gotten to their shipper yet. I would call them and let them know you got a shipment notice....

What I hate most - besides the price - is no matter what you order, the 'baristas' always look at you like "why did you order that?!?" - I hate that.

I'm about to call them and find out what happened.. believe it or not I've had this happen once before with a $2500 sectional.. I had problems after problems after problems with it and finally sent it back and got my money back. then they delivered a new one about a week later...

It kind of reminds me of the top news story the other night. Car wash being shut down because women/girls are wearing bikinis? Well, duh what do they want them to wear, ball gowns? Bikinis and water do mix.
People are getting just a little too weird and the ones that call themselves christians and act like this are being ridiculous. The Starbucks Mermaid?
How stupid is that?

I was wondering if people will give me crap for my next tattoo because it's a skull made out of the bodies of 7 nude women. It's actually a piece by Salvador Dali, so it's art and it's also on the back of the moth that is on the cover of Silence of the Lambs.
I'm guessing anyone picky enough to protest something dumb probably wouldn't know that.. and actually, I didn't know all of that until two days ago

I don't usually. But sometimes we have to meet customers there. Too bad there aren't more small coffee shops on this side of town! As a marketing guy, I realize they are marketing geniuses, but I can see through the hype!

Are you going to post a picture of it?
I wouldn't worry about people that give you crap. They don't matter.
Sounds like an interesting piece of art to me. To each, his/her own.
