Amazon delivery warning

Just a quick warning about ordering things from Amazon Marketplace: make sure you read the details about how they will deliver your item.

I ordered something the other day, and I assumed like many of the other products that it said:

Delivery: In stock. Dispatched from United Kingdom. International delivery available.

But I didn’t read closely enough. I just skim read it. Like when you skim read jam labels, and fail to see that it’s actually been made of bees and hay.

It actually read:

Delivery: In stock. Dispatched from United Kingdom. Irrational delivery available.

Thankfully I live in the UK, so it didn’t affect me. But be warned!
