What do you think qualifies as slow shipping?



I wanted to get your thoughts on what do you consider to be slow shipping when you buy a comic online?  I did a" Buy It now" from Metropolis on May 25 of a Turok 56. Nice 9.6 , good price but ultra slow shipping.  I got an email from them on June 6 saying they were about to ship. That's 12 days after purchase. They then sent an email on June 13 saying it shipped. Seven more days. It arrived June 16 finally.  Now to be fair it does state that they take 2 to 3 weeks to ship but I've never bought a comic from them that has taken more than 10 days to arrive. 

On the same day at the same time I bought a Thor 131 9.4 from Worldwide Comics and had it 3 days later . I bought a Comic from Comiclink a few days after the Metropolis purchase and it beat the Turok here. So what do you think is slow? 

On a brighter note I had a string of being second on online auctions come to an end with a win on Heritage the other night.  Recently on the 9.8 and 9.6's I would come up just short but finally broke through with 40 bucks to spare from my high bid.  Well today the images of those two books are not loading or any other picture or I would post them.  Sorry about that. TRYING to load again, Hope it works.

Hey Rockblazer, what was the book that finally broke your "always a bridesmaid" streak you had going there?

Their web site says to allow two to three weeks. The book was in your hand within that period.

it was a Turok 37 9.8 .  A lot of the ones I had come up short on were Thor from issue 128 through 160. Those books are going up into the upper hundreds of dollars on high grade issues.

The most recent purchase from Metropolis did take longer than 3 weeks to ship. 27 days to ship , 29 to receive.
