An eagerly anticipated package that never seems to come. Frustrating! You track it online, you wait diligently at home—and yet, all you get is a HEY SORRY WE MISSED YA notice. So that's how they pull it off.

That's so considerate—I feel much better about all those games and DVDs I bought that just vanished into the shipping ether. [Reddit]
