If I would have known that I would have bought if from somewhere else. Its the fact that it took 3 days for the order to be dispatched.
They should make a note on the arduino website that its a part-time shop, and your order isn't processed immediately.
Well I don't know that for sure - many websites are also run by someone part time or they do other things as well. Hell, Sparkfun started off with a guy in his bedroom processing orders.
There may be a completely different reason for the delay - like I said, try email.
