The Shipping Philosophers Have Spoken

As foretold by the wise, we have reached the time of patience throughout the land. 

Delays are many this fastidious and festive season:

*     as our holiday orders keep rolling in

*     as our warehouse takes precautions protecting workers from COVID-19      hazards

*     as the mighty USPS and UPS and all the delivery services muddle through temperamental weather

      The hard-working workers are working hard, and we’re doing our part by keeping our Holiday Shipping Schedule up-to-date for the most current estimates possible.

      *** In short, you can expect our warehouse to take up to 6 business days to process your order ***

       

      TAKE HEED

      Will recipients see prices or my billing info?

      PACKING SLIPS AND CHARGES  

      When you order directly from The Unemployed Philosophers Guild website (PhilosophersGuild.com), the shipment arrives with a packing slip that lists the items in the shipment. However, no prices or billing information appears on packing slips, individual items, or packaging.

      Receipts are emailed separately to the sender’s account at time of checkout.

      Help! I am a seeker of wisdom…or just confused

      May I Visit the Oracle at UPG?

      The Shipping Philosophers are jarringly wise; however, they possess limited power over jam-packed seasonal delivery trucks, Mother Nature, or entropy… and this keeps them humble. We implore your patience and compassion and thank you in advance for your understanding of utilitarianism, the categorical imperative, and thermodynamics.

      UPG’s expert Shipping Philosophers are available for discourse and prognostication during philosophical business hours: 
      Monday through Friday 9:30AM to 5:00PM-ish  Brooklyn Ivory Tower time 
      (except November 26th & 27th, December 24th & 25th,, and January 1st ).

      Should it transpire there is no solution so – crazy – it – just – might – work… they’ll suggest a UPG Gift Certificate and appropriate revivifying beverage.
