The Red WordPress T-Shirt that Never Arrived

A couple of months ago, I placed an order for a red WordPress t-shirt at Indigo Clothing. My order was received and after one month, I sent a letter to follow-up on my order. Sometime in  October, the shop sent me a message saying that the t-shirt was dispatched on October 2 (I placed my order on Sep 12), and said that it shall arrive in two weeks time. It’s now November and I haven’t received my Red WordPress T-shirt  still.
