Free shipping...but ya gotta wait a week!

So we like Amazon.com. They have good prices and free shipping on many things. I bought a few DVD's (Airplane, Airplane II The Sequel, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off) for $4 a piece including free shipping. I was in no hurry to get them. Well Kelli wanted Mario Kart for the Wii. The price on Amazon.com is $49.99. We ordered an extra steering wheel for $9.99 as well. We will save $16 and change as compared to Best Buy. When I ordered from Amazon if I chose free shipping it wouldn't ship for 1 full week. If I picked standard shipping for $5 it would ship the next day. WTF?!? I think the week delay is just punishing those who actually take advantage of the free shipping offer. I am sure it will sit on the shelf next to the ones that ship via standard shipping for a week. It will then be picked up by the same human and put in the same box as a standard shipping order. We are in no hurry for the game. Amazon used to ship everything next day. I guess times are rough. Still..a week Amazon? Really. Really?

Seriously a week?

I mean 7 days to go from the shelf to a box?

Is it a really high shelf? Maybe the free shipping ladder is in the shop?
