I'm not the only one

Apparently, there are 5,999 other unhappy co-op owners waiting on their produce as well. Hubby came home this morning to share that the local paper had a big article about the farm that sold all the co-ops and couldn't deliver!
I looked it up as soon as I could and was shocked to discover that they sold 6,000 shares this year! Obviously they got in over their heads and they can't keep up. I hope they are happy with their new found fortune of $210,000!!! Myabe it was a planned thing...rip everyone off and just run off with the money!?!? Who knows.
Either way, the article said they tried to contact the owners and got no response....imagine that? IF they ever show up at the local stand I'll see about getting some veggies since I'm obviously not getting a refund (as they have not responded to my email nor answered any call in the past week) but if not, then I'll just write it off as a lesson learned. I have wasted about that much in gas and time wondering around downtown for a parking space so from now on, I'll just get what I can if I can and support the other farmers instead!
Come to find out co-ops usually are sold in limited shares per year and for a couple hundred dollars each....buyer beware I guess!
