book-buyer's query

Say, butnotdavid, suppose someone had visited her local large chain bookstore on the 3rd. And suppose that, while there, she looked for a book that was not in stock. And further suppose that the person behind the info counter said that he would order that book and this someone would receive a call when it came in- in 3 to 8 days. If it is now 13 days later, and the girl has received no call, should the girl then assume that she needs to find a different Christmas gift for the intended recipient of that book, do you think?

'Cause that's annoying.

ETA: I went over to the store at lunch. When I asked if my book had come in yet, the nice woman behind the counter looked it up and said that my copy had been sent . . . but that in the meantime, they had some on that shelf right over there! So I bought one of those. Because huh?
