    This thread and continuing orders from ktjo is classic, "you can lead a horse to water but you cant make them drink, even if you club them over the head with a brick, hold their face underwater and strap their neck to the trough.

    Some warehouse somewhere someone has that handle and keeps pretending it’s a phone and it is ringing. And they are like, who? Who? Benny? Nah. Never heard of him. And then they hang up.

    She did say, on her latest f#%^book post, that she was getting out shipment 1 of 2 because all the boxes hadn’t arrived yet. (Her solution to cut down the waiting time). I guess all the handles are in the missing boxes. UPS is really doing a number on getting shit from Long Beach to Rainier. Looks like it could be worse than the first go round.

    People are still buying these? Just send me the money and I'll find something in my garage to send you. It won't be a working grab handle, but at least you'll know that going in.

    Her thinking is probably “the waiting won’t be so bad if I can at least send out 1/2 the order. Yeah, that oughta do it”.

    I know the answer. But the question is,
    Isn’t it just gonna cost more for shipping?

    Oh gawd. This is gonna be a clusterfuck. KTJO 4x4 will be shipping folks two handles or two trim pieces and no hardware. It's gonna be epic.

    This is how it is done at OEM Plug-n-Play, folks!

    Which she'll probably request from the buyers or else hold the rest of the shipment hostage... she doesn't strike me as the type that would eat that extra cost, but I guess we'll see.

    Is she charging double shipping? I bet she’s going to hold package two hostage until she gets those sweet second shipping fees. Folks will pay for priority, but she’ll ship them via pony express or however it takes a couple of weeks to be delivered.

    A tale that feels as old as time.

    She has bulk shipped stuff through a USPS “shipping partner” which (speaking from experience here) hangs on to the package for a couple of weeks before it ever reaches a post office. (Much cheaper for her). So if you’ve paid for priority post or whatever, the shipping is covered be it 1 or 2 “shipments”.
