Amazon fail - but it's on me!

For the past few months, I've had very few Amazon sales. I guess the books I'm offering just aren't in demand, or I'm not asking a good price for them. Whatever. No big deal, right?

I get back from the honeymoon, and I find out that in the week that I was gone I got four orders. What were the odds? Worse, the orders were all right around the wedding, so they're very late. I've had to refund three of them, and the fourth one I ended up having to purchase the item from another seller and rush-shipping it to the buyer, because I can't even find the DVD he bought! My feedback's probably gonna plummet to the ground.

I'm just shocked that after months of no money coming in, folks chose the one week I wasn't around to ship their goods to go shopping.
