Holy Crappy Service, Tego!

« previous next »

Remember back in January when I left my phone in a taxi and it went where socks go in the dryer? Two days before that I had ordered a custom skin from an outfit called "Tego. I wouldn't waste money on such a thing, but I happened to "win" this as a Christmas present from Rogers. The offer was going to expire at the end of January so I decided to go a head an order it since it was "free" (as in, spend a gazillion dollars on your phone every month, get a prize worth less than the tax portion of the monthly bill - what a deal!)

That was on the 29th of January. Today, TODAY, thirty-eight days after placing my order, I got an e-mail with the subject line "Your TEGO order […] from mytego.com is now being made just for you."

Thirty eight days and they are starting on my order?! If this was something I had actually paid for and cared about I think I would be a little choked about this. It's like I ordered Sea-Monkeys out of a 25¢ comic book from 1976 - "Please allow 6 - 8 weeks for delivery." Or maybe 1946:

Dear Mr. Tego,

Would you be so kind as to send me a skin made from the attached drawing for my telephone, a Blackberry, which is about a year old and has a lot of buttons and a little silver around the edges…

At least Rogers finally did replace my phone with the same model, or this skin I had pretty much forgotten about would be pretty useless, whenever/if it finally does show up.
