>Good News Bad News

>
First the bad news. The BAMF Nikon D50 isn’t on it’s way to me right now. Amazon.com royally screwed up. Five calls to customer service over two days and now all I have to my name is a refund. Long story involving much shouting and swearing. Good news, the camera’s memory card from Buy.com and the backup battery from Delkin.com ARE on their way…I have Fed Ex tracking numbers for them. Bad news, most of online retailers either have raised their price or our out of stock of the camera. Good news, there’s a local retail shop that has it in stock so I can pick it up today if I want. Bad news, because of retail overhead and tax, it’s gonna cost me a bunch more. Good news, the store guy is nice, feels bad for me, and will throw in a few perks to sweeten the deal. Like a $50 gift card on future purchases, so I can get the UV lens filter or Speedlite flash in the near future. And some free prints and a free camera class. TBG bought her new D70s at the same place so we can take the class together! So all in all, not so bad. I think I’m gonna go pick it up today at lunchtime. Unfortunately I won’t have the memory card to start playing with it right away, that’ll take another day or two to get here. But I can read the instruction book in the meantime. Yes, I’m a woman, and an engineer, I read the instructions.
