Anecdotal evidence regarding one company you've worked for is hardly a reasonable justification or explanation for anything. I've worked across many, many retail and production positions in my time and the notion that even one companies practices can be compared apples to apples to another is laughable at best.
Marketing is a *****, but what can you do?
Has anyone's case shipped yet? They began shipping again yesterday, but unfortunately my order was apparently not processed (or processed without confirmation).
I called them and spoke with them. The guy said that they do an annual warehouse lockdown to count inventory, the reason they do this is to have their bases covered in case they get audited. He said that my case should most likely arrive early next week. I still haven't received an email, and I ordered mine on the 30th.
I still haven't received my shipping confirmation yet. In fact I haven't even heard anything about it. Haven't been charged or anything yet. Only thing I got was a receipt when I placed my order.

If the Otterbox Facebook page is any indication, some orders as far back as the 27th of December have still yet to receive any sort of shipping information. Also, people are a little upset.
Some people are a lot upset, and that part is hilarious.
So yeah - I'm going to take the context clues provided and presume the Otters are pretty backed up, and it could be a while longer.
