The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Dear Mr. Bezos

A couple of years ago, I bought a gift certificate from Amazon.com which somehow disappeared into the bit bucket; it took about a dozen emails to get the matter straightened out. This is, I am assured, not a common occurrence, but if it happens at all, it's too common to suit me.

So I'm wondering: Is it just me? Does anyone else ever have problems with these things? I've had no difficulties with third-party addresses or with Wish List items.

Well, I once ordered a CD on Amazon and they could never get a hold of a copy. At least they never charged me for it.

Bought a dozen Amazon gift certificates over the years without complaint.

Let's test it: Charles, send me an Amazon.com gift certificate for, say, $100 - and I'll let you know if it works or not.

Heh.
