notification explosion

someone rammed into my driver's side window this past weekend. i found a site to buy a replacement for super cheap.

after i placed the order, i got five notification emails over the period of a 24hr period. The first said (essentially), "thanks for placing your order! Your order has *not* been processed yet." the second (about ten minutes later) said, "thanks for your order! Your payment has been processed." The third said, "Thanks for your order! Here's a receipt." The fourth said, "thanks for your order! Here's a tracking number for your order which has shipped." And the fifth said, "thanks for your order! We appreciate your business! Here's a link to our partner site!"

five notification receipts for a bloody $20 purchase. that's kind of like when you go into best buy, make a $15 single item purchase, and leave with a receipt that's longer than your arm because they have to give you Ts&Cs and web offers and who knows what else because i certainly never read the thing which is probably the point because now they've trapped you into a binding contract that means that you can never shop anywhere else EVER AGAIN.

okay, maybe not.
