It took about forty-five minutes to pick up the moving truck but all the stress was consumed by other customers. We just coasted until our truck was ready.
Coworker: At least it's a nice day to move.
After three bookcases/shelving units, and a dozen or so boxes, we pick up the last heavy bookcase.
That's when the hail started.
Saturday, 3pm, Me: I ordered a set of bookcases from you a couple of weeks ago, and was told they'd be delivered on Friday. I know the various delivery services are running behind right now, but when I tried to check the status of my order, I noticed it had gone from "out for delivery" to "out of stock". If it's just going to be a few more days before the bookcases arrive, that's not a problem. I'm happy to wait a bit. But if they are out of stock, I don't really want to wait a month or so for them, and would rather have my money refunded. Please let me know the current status.

We received an update from our partner stating that because of the increase in orders and the impact of COVID-19, Carriers have a large backlog of packages now. Some orders may be delayed 3-8 days before the first scan. This also depends on the level of Carriers' capacity. Please be assured your package will arrive by Saturday 11/28. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Please note, I have sent only one response since my intial inquiry, and it was to thank them for getting back to me. I now have No Idea whether I'm actually getting the bookcases, the refund, neither, or both.
Updated: On Friday, I received a full refund for all shelves.
On Saturday, the shelves arrived.
The "Gay Cake" we ordered had a RYOBGV center instead of a ROYGBV center, so we almost didn't eat it.
Luckily, there is a homemade apple pie, and a homemade pumpkin pie which are, hopefully, delicious.
I can't remember what the phrase on the menu was that had Comrade and I discussing Worst Possible Drag/Porn Star Names, but my contribution was "Squelchy Donuts".
Not only is that NOT a Googlewhack, it's both a description that an actual bakery uses to entice people to buy their actual donuts, and also, unsurprisingly, part of adjective noun spam for adult sites that will absolutely steal your personal info.
But also, a porn star whose work one should never have to encounter. Or, a drag performer who is probably utterly delightful.
Random Loiterer: "Look, I may be a super gay lesbian, but Conner Kent from Young Justice can GET THIS."
No word on what "THIS" is. I assume it's her frequent customer punch card from a coffeehouse.
There has been construction going on upstairs pretty much since we moved in. It's not every day, but at least two or three times a week. Today, they are blasting pan flute music while sawing, drilling, dropping heavy objects on the floor, laughing at whoever dropped the heavy object last. All the while, the You Are Waiting To Get On A Line At Disney World pan flute music plays, and in the background, Motherfucker is Howling for it all to stop.
We've been waiting for an email from Comrade's Aunt Wendy about a couple of night stands she might want to give to us. A few minutes ago, Comrade said "Oh, her email got caught in my spam folder. Oh. This is Not From Aunt Wendy."
