I don’t subscribe to any magazines, but since I kept buying Interweave Knits off the rack, and missed it a couple times, I decided to go ahead and subscribe. I had bought the Fall issue already, and wanted to start up with the Winter 2008(2009?) issue. So I put a sticky to that effect on my “Get ONE issue free!!!” coupon, and sent it off.
Now I was puzzled when I received a copy of the Fall 2008 issue, contrary to my request, but understood that a stupid little sticky was not the best way to communicate with a large company. My bad. Now I have two copies, and maybe I’ll sell the extra on eBay in three years or something.
But now, I have yet to receive the Winter issue which has been on newstands since December 4th. In fact, I have seen it, and refrained from buying it. I am pretty annoyed. I like the magazine but the subscription side of the house has made me peeved and twitchy.
Anybody else still waiting? Is this normal for new subscribers, and I should shut my piehole?
