First World Problems

Target update:  An order we managed to place is delayed. They sent an email. It's boring.

If you scan it, see "please approve the delay", click the link, input order number and email address...  well you'll get another email just like this one.  which you will read more carefully.

And then you'll realize that if you're not an official Target Returning Guest, then your order automatically persists and will not be canceled.

Don't worry, I got this. Everything's going to be okay. We'll have the pepper grinder soon.
