Default Now comes the hard part... waiting!

I just got a note that my car is scheduled to arrive at Port of Houston on... Cinco de Mayo!

https://www.audiworld.com/forums/sho....php?t=2861877

Should I be worried? And it feels like there's an Arrested Development reference trying to claw its way out of this post.

And I can tell it is an online tool because the Spanish is too formal, nothing you would use in a forum.
I hope my English doesn't read/sound too formal

It is sad how so called"mexicans" born in the US (they don't speak Spanish and some of them have never been in Mexico BUT they are mexicans) cherish that made up holiday like it is our 4th of July.
It was a battle Mexico won against the French, that's it, important yes, our Independence Day?not at all.

For those interested (I know Snagitsiete will read it for sure)
