"Have you been satisfied with your Christmas shopping online?:"
The obove poll does not have a link working for Contribute to the discussion about this poll. so I will have my rant here. I did a limited anount of shopping on line and after this years experience I will not next year.
As the in-laws are getting more house bound we decided that as the TV reception was not great in their area we would get them a dish and freesat box. We arranged a date with a man to remove old Arial and install a dish and run new cables to the TV points. We had 2 weeks so I ordered a nice new Freesat box with hard drive recorder online through a company I have used before and it was dispatched that day. A courier tried to deliver 1.12.2010 and despite it being mention on the delivery note, if no reply please leave parcel with neighbour at house number 48, despite the neighbour being home all that day the item was not delivered just a ticket in my letter box. After many phone calls and going to the depot still no freesat box. The only contact I can get is if you stand at the door of the courier company and keep your finger on the door bell for about 5 mins then somebody answers the intercom giving a bit of useless information. Next time I will pay £25 more and go to curries.
Rant over Noldi
PS any body want my in-laws round for tea so they can watch TV.
