waiting is the killer, that's for sure! I just wish I could step through my computer and yank it off a shelf and pay for it at a register before stepping back though

would be a nice way of meeting all my friends who live in my computer too

Try waiting for international orders!
They are pretty quick here compared to other companies but it's still a long time to
wait....
Which just means that if I order something every week.....I never have to long to wait in between arrivals

I totally agree.

And on a related topic I always get so disappointed when I order because on the checkout page it says standard shipping is 3-7 days but when you get order confirmation it says 7-10 days.

I fall for it every time! I hate waiting and it is always the 10 days - never faster.


The upside of course is that I have usually forgotten what I ordered so it it a big surprise.

Part of my problem is that there is some weird time-warp between San Francisco and the rest of the country because my packages and mail is SO slow. E.g. - valentine's card mailed from a friend in Oregon took about 10 days to get to me, whereas a friend in Delaware got her card within two or three days Even UPS and FedEx seem to take longer. Oh well .... on the plus side we don't get blizzards!

Waiting is the worst! We need someway so that we can go in the warehouse and pack our own package they just need to figure out how to teleport us to the warehouse and back.

Yes, waiting is hard to do but if you order so there is always another order waiting to send out - you can get a package from scrapbook.com every day!

Notice how none of us seem to care that it's a warehouse... not actual accommodations-with beds or room service or anything! And we're starting to sound a bit like well, like squatters and or burglers!!! Oh, please can we come!!!!! Please! Please!! Please!!!

I think they should have some kind of contest where cropping at their warehouse is the prize!!
And yeah, who needs 4 star accomodations.. I mean when will we find time to eat and sleep anyway?!?

Cropping or running free like crazy people with shopping carts driven to cram them as full of stuff as humanly possible? I'm sort of up for either.

They won't let ME............I tried.

They also vetoed my roller skating plan. Something about my lack of grace.

Flailing your arms about for balance would rather interfere with fetching items off the shelves.

LOL! Megan can you tell we all would love to spend a few minutes in the warehouse. Tell you what offer something where we have 5 minutes to fill a shopping cart and I promise all of us could clear the warehouse in that 5 minutes

We're all such nice people, we'd just politely roll you down the aisles ahead of us as we clear off the shelves. If you can point or speak clearly from inside your sumo suit, we'll toss whatever we think you'd like into your cart.

We actually considered doing this as a contest once. Kicked around the idea a few different times. Unfortunately, the liability people nixed it. Apparently women running with scissors and shopping carts is a bad thing? Bahahahaha!

For those of you in Arizona, you can put hold for pick up on your order. No teleport services available though!
Loving this thread!

Recently we were thinking of doing our summer vacation as a driving trip to New Mexico. I was going to INSIST on stopping at sb.com to pick up an order, whether I needed anything or not Our plans have since changed and that's okay, but I'm going to miss the experience
