a crayon takes 12 days to get delivered? why not just go buy 1 at the store? And why does it take so long? Can't they just take one off the line, put it in an envelope, and send it?

As someone who occasionaly makes these types of shipments to customers there are plenty of reasons why it might take 12 days.

1-2 Days to process and respond to the issue. (including your response since I would need shipping info and the ok to ship you product).

1-3 Days to get hold of a replacement part and have it dropped at the shipping dock.

1-2 days for the dock to process and release (It would be quicker but this item would be listed as low priority)

5-7 Day Standard Shipping

All in all you've 8-14 days between a complaint and the complete resolution.

Add 2 days for every weekend where the business and shipping companies are likely closed.

At the minimum of 8 days you've hit at the least one so add 2 days. but that makes 10 so you've hit two weekends now so add two more and that makes 12 days.

Also to your question of "Can't they just take one of the line and send it"

Crayola is not a one man/woman company. The same person answering the complaint emails is not working on the line, moving the product, packaging the product, or shipping the product. He/She either has to have the specific crayon on hand or have contact in charge of stock within the company.
