candy update

I got a confirmation e-mail from Jlist saying 
"We have not yet shipped your order as some of the products are temporarily out of stock.  Your order will be shipped when we receive the items from our suppliers." 

Thing is, I remember getting this exact message last time I bought candy.  And I replied to it, asking if it would take longer than a few weeks, since it was a birthday gift (... mine).  I received a reply the next day, saying my order had shipped.  

I have a wonderful mental image of some poor Japanese guy with a printout of my order in a local deli-market, searching for the right candy.
