We live in an age of instant fulfillment. I can order a bunch of vitamins from Mother Nature and with free shipping they end up on my doorstep less than a week later. So why does it take twelve to sixteen weeks for a simple bimonthly magazine subscription to begin?
I don’t buy the whole “Here’s Why” explanation Amazon offers. Two weeks for the subscription to get to the publisher? Do they have a team bicycling across the country to deliver the subscriptions by hand? Seems to me that for a bimonthly you should have to wait a max of two months. And it would be a welcome courtesy to send out the current issue if their shipping system allows it.
