Paging flick and drplokta

Message received from Amazon today:

We wanted to give you an update on the status of your order [xxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx].

We are sorry to report that, despite our best efforts, we have been unable to source the following item: Gustav Temple, Vic Darkwood "The Chap Manifesto: Revolutionary Etiquette for the Modern Gentleman"

We apologise for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion. Until recently, we had still hoped to obtain this item for you.

This item has now been cancelled from your order and we can confirm that you have not been charged for it.

So, any preferences for another wedding present?

Oh, poot! Never mind, thanks for letting us know.

Indeed; I've had that mail from Amazon before, and both times managed to buy the book direct from the publisher's website instead, and for less money than Amazon wanted. They don't try very hard with their long-drawn-out "searching"...

You might want to ask them why is it still listed on the Amazon site? There are a couple of vg used in Amzon Marketplace, one in Lincs for a sensible price:-)
