    so here I am ordering some stuff on B&H so its here by Wednesday. As I'm looking for the "checkout" button, I only see "add to wishlist" where the checkout button usually is. So I look up and read this.....

    "Please note: Online ordering is temporarily unavailable until Tuesday 8:45 PM EDT. Feel free to browse our site and add items to your cart or wishlist. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patronage."

    they do this shit ALL the time. they are always closed ( store, and online store ) for some bullshit reason, how are they still in business is beyond me....but I'm the sucker that KEEPS coming back :hs:

    Sorry, end of rant.

    This fuckin guy is calling religious holidays, like EASTER, fucking bullshit reasons :rofl:

    "How they are still in business is beyond me", you must be really, really dumb, because the reason is "They are the biggest and have the best selection in the world". That was beyond you? :rofl:

    Now I did forget that its passover till the 6th, so I apologize for that.

    I would understand that the store is closed and can't be packed / shipped today. But at least let people still order online and put a warning that it wont be packed and shipped till xx/xx.

    I need to order something for a shoot on thursday :( good thing they have next day air lol

    They do not since they do not believe Jesus was the messiah.

    However, they celebrate passover which is their celebration from slavery.

    To TS: They have a decent size announcement in blue on the top of every one of their pages saying they are not accepting orders.

    edit: I see you were making a funny and it went over my head.

    If you want something so bad, go to your local shop and pick it up. If they don't have it, wipe your tears and move on.

    B&H's shitty schedule is completely stomped out by their customer service.

    "Yes Hi my lens has dust on it"
    "Oh no shit? Ok we'll cover shipping both ways. Send it back. One dust free lens ON THE WAY!!!"

    I should say their constantly being closed has saved me money though. Oh I want to buy XYZ, shit they are closed, oh well will get it next week, and forget about it.

    2 more avenger f1000's and monofrotto super clamps. Reason I'm getting them from B&H is cause I have 147 dollar credit with them.

    I believe every online store should be up and running 24/7, because that is the advantage of having online store, people place orders 24/7. But since B&H is being run by multi millionaires, obviously uncle Joshua at B&H does not give rat's ass about little Billy here from OT and his need of UV filters.
