Tell Me --- What Does Shipped Mean to Knitpicks?

Because I think we have VERY different definitions for the word "shipped".  

According to the Knitpicks website and the email they sent me on April 7th, my order was shipped on April 7th.  

According to the Knitpicks email I just receive a few minutes ago, my order just entered the Canadian postal system today.  It's the freakin' 16th!  They truck their orders to the border!  WTF?!?  

All 7 Basket Weave Repeats Done

So now it's scheduled to be delivered on April 22nd.  That is officially 12 business days (certainly not the 5-10 business days that they said it would be).

If something is going to take 12 days, then tell me it's going to take 12 days.  If something is going to actually ship on the 16th, then tell me it's going to be the 16th.  

Maybe I'm just grouchy because I have the flu.  I have been sick since Monday and have been getting steadily worse, so I went to the Dr. today.  He told me that I'm not allowed to work for the rest of the week. 
Finished Transitional Chart

My illness has been extremely unpleasant, but has allowed me the time to do lots of knitting on my Hanami Stole.

I have now finished all 7 basket weave repeats and the transitional chart.

I've heard that the free shipping option, if you used that, can take really really long. I've found that true of a lot of places.

In general I've found it takes some companies eons to ship things to me and others it's lightning speed so they can;t blame customs.

Sorry you're feeling sick. I'm itching to spin on my spindle but am back to no lifting my arm over my head. Blech,
