Well, color me embarrased. Here I was ranting about the delayed delivery date of my new phone, and it turns out it's at the post office at this very moment, ready for me to pick it up only 2 days after I placed the order. I don't know why PC City wanted to scare me like that, putting expected delivery dates next week in my confirmation mail, but I guess an apology is in place nevertheless.
Sorry, PC City! I'll try to ignore the expected delivery date next time and be a bit more patient.
