Post your Crap for May & June 2020

Howdy Wooters!

This here nifty thread is for posting your BOC should you be so unlucky as to get one during the month of May & June 2020, including the Ask Woot Anything (Creative Team) or a Woot-Off should we be so lucky as to have one!!

Note: We will likely have fewer BOCs for a while. Turns out building them slows down tons when you have to keep 6’ apart on a 12’ assembly line. Where 4 people used to be able to do it together, now only one or two people can build at a time meaning fewer BOCs getting built.

Remember that you’re promised these things from your BOC:

  • 3 items
  • A bag if we remember to put it in
  • Abject disappointment

If you get more than that, count your blessings or talk to someone about the disappointment that has swallowed up your life.

Order Snafus

You may find that your order got denied or canceled. While this seems totally unfair and you’ll be tempted to complain to anyone that will listen, here’s a few things for your consideration:

  • We will never have enough craps for those wishing to purchase craps.
  • At best, the ratio of people attempting to available craps are 3:1… if you’re lucky. Usually it’s more like 25:1 or more.
  • So many people try that it pushes our servers to the point of wanting to throw in the towel and just crash
  • The servers have been known to crash.

To keep the servers from crashing, we have an order queue. You’ll enter the “Vestibule of Patience” while you wait for your order to be accepted, denied, or canceled. You should not exit the Vestibule to try again because that just puts you at the back of the line.

  • If your order is accepted, then you can brag about your impending disappointment in this here thread and on your social media outlets of choice. :smiley:
  • If your order is denied, it’s nothing personal. It just means that we ran out before your order was processed. It’s our rude way of saying “Sorry!” :cry:
  • If your order was cancelled, you were so, so, so close. So close that your payment went through but gosh darn it, we ran out of BOCs before we assigned one to you. We have to reverse all that work to refund your hard earned money. :angry:

Remember to post what you get!

Now one of the things that makes the Bag of Crap so much darn fun is to see what everyone got. The only way to see what everyone got is if everyone comes back to post what you got. See the trend here?

Taking your crap and running off with just steals the fun from everyone, especially me. So please post what you get.

How the heck did you people manage to get a BOC? I’ve got a team of shaved monkeys scourring the website day and night, trying to find a BOC to buy but nothing has turned up.

We released a [very] few at the end of the Ask Woot! Anything on Friday afternoon.

And you didn’t think to page me?

I have spent hundreds of pennies over the years buying things on Woot and this is how I’m treated?

Good Day, Sir.

If it makes you feel better, here’s the post (not that it would do you any good):

Helloooo! Is there anyone out there?

I was very lucky to snag a BoC from the Creative Team talk. Thank you, ThunderThighs, for offering us a chance to get one.

Well, here it is. It was in a small, but heavy box. I had high expectations. Silly me. Actually it wasn’t too bad, but maybe it’s just because I’ve been so bored lately and almost anything would amuse me. :slight_smile:

So what was in it?

A couple of heavy books. Gee, thanks.

A really weird costume that you will never see me wearing.

A mini manicure set.

One Woot monkey. Woo hoo!

3 heavy metal hinges for a heavy door. Any door missing its hinges at Woot?

A HDMI to HDMI cable, which will be nice if I ever get a TV and other TV hookup thingies.

A grounded outlet in white.

A really cool micro blade knife with carabiner. I’ll probably cut myself, but it’s pretty neat.

A leather NFL dog collar. Lady dog will be so pleased since it’s in her size. NOT! It’s not her beloved KC Chiefs, but since she can’t read, I think she’ll wear it.

Two rather large dog chew toys that are too big for Lady. She ran the opposite direction when I threw one for her.

And finally, the lovely blue Woot Bag.

Thanks, this was so much fun on a cold, gray, rainy day!

HA! You should always lower your expectations for a BOC.
Actually a fairly good box.
CONGRATS!

Well, it wasn’t a giant rooster, but we all have to make sacrifices during this pandemic.
