They don't owe you anything if you stuff gets screwed up, but most will work to make sure you are happy. Being an asshole wouldn't get you anywhere though.
This is the best option. Be cool about it, and most vendors will be willing to help you out.
It would be kinda hard not be be mad when ordering a nice hookah that your so excited to finally get, that took a month and a half to come then you open it and see this, but ya that childish cause even if they could do anything he'd have to ship it back which would take another month and a half then an additional one to get the new one so ya he should just chill and not worry about it lol don't take me to serious I like messing around.
