Not sure what the point of your warning is.
I did not sign up for HBT to just complain about vendors. I have a few hundred posts where I have provided advice and advice has been given back to me on numerous subjects.
Well I called Midwest to check on my order and the not so friendly person that answered the phone said they are 3-5 days behind in processing orders.
I told him no problem, and said just as long as I get it in time for Christmas. His response:"You will be lucky if you do".
Not the type of response I was looking for.
This will be my last post on this subject. Sorry if I offended anyone!
