I would like to remind you that the New year Holiday was from the 1st until the 4th, possibly the 3rd down south. Over the Festive Season, there has been considerable dislocation of the Postal services due to Snow and Low Temperatures.
When, exactly, did you expect your Issue to be delivered?
I am not going to take abuse from you. If the magazine is in the shops, as it was on the 6th, then I would expect to have it by then. I do not need a condescending lesson from you. It is you that has a lack of brains if you think I am unaware of when the holidays take place. There have been no postal problems where I live. Items ordered on the net before and since Christmas have arrived here ! Anyway, I am not complaining, only posting an observation.
Sorry cant really see that - and as iscanut says this isnt a complaint just an observation.
If the mag is ready to go (as evidenced by deliveries to retail) - and given I normally get it a week earlier by subscription/post.... and despite the snow/ice/bad weather I am receiving recently dispatched mail - ie no backlogs - it should have arrived.
If it is because of the holidays so it was printed late, therefore the subscribers didnt get their early delivery, and vans are quicker than the mail - just say so .... but please dont blame the weather and Christmas postal deluge!
