ASIN Investigation

I just received this email from Amazon. This is like when my wife wakes me up at 1:30am because she’s talking in her sleep.

I haven’t had any recent customer messages about damaged product for this ASIN, but I have on others and have sent out return-less replacements and generally those customers end up being “delighted”.

In a parallel universe, Amazon sent me this same message and included an order number to reference, investigate, and make right. My current stream of consciousness does not occupy that universe, so I’ll just wait for the other cosmic shoe to drop.

Honestly? I’ll take a “reminder” if it keeps me ahead of a problem…

…but not being given enough information to figure out the actual problem myself renders me useless.

I think this is the other shoe.

Then again, it may not drop.

We used to have a great health insurance company. They would always send us letters to tell us why they were going to pay the claim. It was puzzling when we started with them, but the letters kept coming and we got used to them.

Yet I don’t see Amazon as that nice company.

How many mornings a year do we all run around trying to deal with the next alligator that Amazon drops in our office, shop, warehouse?
