Staples. We’ve not got that.

So I ordered a case of 8.5 x 14 paper to put together a newsletter I publish. This is the response I got from Staples a day later:

Dear Staples Customer:

Order#: ———–

Item:Sku#:000512206 HAM ULT MULTI 8.5X14 CS

This item was not available for shipping and you were not billed for it. It is expected to be back in stock in 5-7 business days. To receive this item, please place a new order after the above noted time on or call Staples Customer Service at 800-333-3330, option 2.

LEGAL SIZE WHITE PAPER???? Staples is out of paper???

I guess they spent all their stock-up money on their silly plastic “Easy” buttons, which they’ll sell you for $ 4.99 each.
