Delivery fury thread

Yeh all sounds a bit odd.

I’m gonna piss on your house

When I worked in a call centre my colleague had to deal with a complaint like this that included - and this definitely did not help - a photo of the driver giving the finger to the person making the complaint.

I do feel sorry for drivers because what are they supposed to do? Especially DPD and that where they might have unrealistic workloads. I can understand not wanting them to shamelessly piss on your house though. The complaint probably lies with DPD as a company for not giving drivers enough time to stop somewhere with a toilet. (Although I don’t think my old employer’s drivers had unrealistic workloads and I guess that guy had just got caught short)

Ordered some mudguards for the bike on Friday, expecting them to be here yesterday/today-ish, so I could go for a ride without getting soaked.

Just checked the order status and it says expected dispatch 13/10. Could’ve told me that when I was ordering them ffs.

Oh for goodness sake

Substituting peas for sweetcorn ffs. I don’t expect that kind of shit from Ocado.

Not just peas, British petis pois.

As if by magic, just had an email saying its been dispatched.

Norman from DPD is planning to deliver me some confit du canard and cassoulet (@xylo I succumbed).

He’s going to be with me in about three hours apparently. He currently claims to be in Thornton Heath. If I don’t answer the door he’ll leave my food in my porch.

He looks trustworthy. I think I’m in safe hands. Excited.

Hoping they will be good. Will let you know. Used to buy this stuff from Borough Market, but I don’t get into town as much as I used to these days…

Norm’s on delivery 13 already. He’s looking pretty efficient. Not far away, but still 25 deliveries and an hour and a half to go. The suspense is killing me.

I hope, in the spirit of the thread, that he doesn’t turn up.

To be honest, when I found this site it seemed so good to be true that I’ve spent the last two days convincing myself I’ve been scammed.

Is it OK for me just to be furious about there not being enough sausage in my cassoulet? Can we compromise on that?

Fingers crossed (only for thead consistency of course)
