Several things annoy me daily, Roger’s snoring, Zander waking up at the crack of dawn, the cat meowing because he’s bought us a present home and my dogs hovering around all the time for food; they do get fed lol. But today, well actually it has been the last 3 days I have been really annoyed with a courier company.
This particular company up until now I have been really pleased with, always turning up on time, happy friendly man that we have got to know well over the past 8 or so years.
So it started Tuesday, my husband has arranged and paid for a parcel to be collected but was not given a time, we assumed the regular courier would be coming so expected him between 12 and 3 pm, his usual time. 5 pm came and Rog contacted the courier company, they took a while but couldn’t get hold of the local courier but said it would be collected ASAP. Well, that didn’t happen on Tuesday.
Wednesday came, I had a few parcels coming but only two were being delivered that day. I was given the time slot of 11-3pm. I had to take Zander to have his flu vaccine at half 2 but had received an email just before that saying the parcels had been delayed and would be delivered 1-5pm. I left Skye at home as the parcels didn’t need to be signed for but alas they didn’t turn up when I was out.
4:45 pm the courier finally arrived, in a van that sounded like it was about to break down at any moment.
It was not our regular guy though, it was a husband and wife team, not even a smile. Rog asked them if they had a note that they were collecting the parcel, no. He then asked where the other courier was, he had left. Since then they had used agency staff and they were now really behind, they were our new couriers. Great I thought as soon as the wife looked at us with the biggest scowl on her face while chucking parcels around the van.
Also if they turned up to my door in the dark, they would properly scare me, they look very intimidating.
Anyway, I got my parcels so although later than expected in the day, I was happy as they were Christmas gifts.
Now today I had another parcel scheduled for delivery, yeh shop online more than go out and buy stuff because I hate going into town just to find they haven’t got what I want.
Again my time slot was 11 am – 3 pm, they didn’t come in that time, no email to say it was delayed but I had to cancel my plans for this afternoon because of it. The tracking still stays it is out for delivery at 8.45pm I’m sure it won’t turn up today now though, well I hope not because I’m off to bed shortly…maybe their van broke down lol.
So that is what has annoyed me this week and I am sure with the run up to Christmas and more parcels being delivered the delays are going to be fun. We may receive them by end of January haha.
