Murphy's Law at its best

It roughly states "if anything can go wrong, it will".
I see it's true now. In my case it is "If there are many ways of procuring something, the way I choose will always be the wrong one"

I had an option to buy a camera in a shop. But I see its available for cheap somewhere else. I order. I wait. I am still waiting. They have crossed their commitment date many a times now. Every time they don't meet their commitment date, they advance the commitment date to a week later. And when I call them up they shamelessly say, Sir our commitment day is not until next week, So we wouldn't be shipping it until then. After that I remind them that their "commitment date" (whatever it means) was last to last week, they have no answers.
Idiots. Shameless idiots.

No wonder online shopping has not yet caught up in India. Thanks to such "committed" vendors.

Update Finally cancelled my order.
