Why must Wal-Mart go out of their way to make me feel like the poor little tyke to the left?
As I have said before, I can’t understand the Wal-Mart online system that doesn’t match orders with the selected pickup store if they actually have the item in stock. That seems like the rational way to handle the transaction but no, the item must come from the central office.
The scheduled site pickup date was between 2/28 – 3/4.
That had me annoyed to start out. I emailed them that I wasn’t thrilled with their online system. I received a response in which they apologized for my confusion. They also told me I would receive a call within 1-3 days. That timeframe has long since passed without the call.
I have also discussed my dismay at their worthless tracking system which never seemed to update. Earlier today it still showed no progress but it had not been updated since 2/23/2011. So no update for almost 7 days.
Until a few minutes ago.
That was my head exploding as I read that the shipment was delayed and now the expected pickup date is 3/12 /2011.
19 days after placing an order for the bike that is in stock in the store I set for pickup???
Does anyone out there find 19 days acceptable for an online order?
Heck, why should I believe it will arrive then? It was supposed to come by the 4th at the latest. It will not. They were supposed to call me within 1-3 days. They did not. So why should I believe it will arrive on the 12th? I don’t. Plus at this point I don’t care.
I know I will never order from Wal-Mart again. I hope you won’t either. I can overreact from time to time but I think 19 days is horrible service especially considering they have bikes in stock in the store I set for pickup.
After reading the new tracking info, I shot off an email to them letting them know how unacceptable this delay is. I can’t wait for their smug reply once again probably apologizing for my confusion on the matter.
I’ll be sure to let you know If I get a response to my email. Be sure to stay tuned as breaking news on the matter could come at any minute. 😀
I’m glad to see I stayed under 205. I was worried I might pop back up and still be on the plateau, so I can at least breathe a sigh of relief that I am off the plateau. I just hope I didn’t climb down onto another one. 😀

Tip Of The Day
Fresh food. This can be tough for lots of people either because of budget or not enough time to get to the store, but I can’t stress how important fresh food can be for a diet. Processed food contains massive amounts of sodium and hidden calories and in some instances you can barely taste the sodium or calories. So you have all the negatives without the taste in many cases.
With fresh food, you can season it the way you like it and still have far less sodium than if you bought the meal already processed.
I know this can be a hassle as it means more trips to the store and fresh tends to cost more but in the end it will make your eating habits much healthier and your scale will move quicker.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
