I was expecting a guitar to be delivered today. So, rather than go out with my mates like I was going to, I've stayed at home to sign for the items and was looking forward to ripping away the packaging and having a blast.

About half an hour ago, the van turned up. Now, normally in this situation, the driver would get out, get the goods out of the van, approach the house, ring the bell and wait for someone to answer the door, if not put an 'attempted delivery' card through the door. It seems this driver forgot the middle of this procedure and got out of his van, approached the house, put an 'attempted delivery' card through the door, jumped in his van and fecked awf.

He made no fucking attempt whatsoever to deliver the item. I have just wasted a day waiting for this prick to arrive. I've now got the choice of wasting my petrol and money, to go to the depot to collect the item myself, or waste another day on Monday.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.....

Infact... I seem to recall it being the same firm that did this to me before... Wankers...
#4
Yea, call them and tell them you want to be compensated for the wasted day
#5
yeah, call up the company and explain what happened, tell them to figure out who was on that shift, whatever.

don't be too pissed, it honestly isn't worth it. It'll come soon, and possibly with refunded shipping costs or something.

I hate the way these bastards can hold you to ransom. If I see someone approaching and I am expecting an item I open the door straight away.
#8
Phone the company and say you witnessed a man get out of his van to deliver a piece of paper. Hold your ground until you get a reasonable excuse, and if you don't get one, keep complaining until you get the delivery you asked for.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!


I'm gonna have my lunch first... An opportunity to calm down, and then I shall ring them - I need to ring them anyway to say I'm coming to collect it, cos I'm at work on Monday, which would be the next redelivery date.

I'll say I've wasted a days leave from work, for someone to get out of their van and put a piece of paper through the door saying they tried to deliver something and so on...
#13
Well, I rang them to tell 'em I was going to collect it tonight, via kicking off about the driver, but was disappointed to find myself talking to a computer. I'll have to save my rant til this evening...

I only have on response to this...

Sorry if I'm being a bit out of line with this comment but you could have opened the door or gone down to meet the fellow as soon as you saw the van pull up.

I'd demand compensation for a days work. Seriously. Can't harm trying.
At least get delivery refunded.

No, I didn't just watch him do it.

I was sat watching TV and I heard the letterbox go, presuming it was the mail - I went opened the front door to get the mail from the porch, then realised it was an attempted delivery notice, as the yellow and green van disappeared down the road.

I didn't actually see him jump out of the van and stick that through the door and get back in. I extrapolated this from the fact that the doorbell was not rung.

Maybe you didn't hear it because you were watching TV.

Anyway, it's not a big deal. It's definitely not something worth getting angry about.

I definitley wouldn't have not heard the bell... I heard the letterbox rattle as he put the card through and the noise that makes compared to the doorbell is negligible.

I'm annoyed because I've waited in for the delivery (Took a days leave from work is what I'm gonna say to them) and now I'm being inconvenienced because someone can't be bothered to do their job properly. Why should I accept that?
#26
When you heard the letterbox noise, why didn't you go outside and shout him?

You shouldn't, you should be pissed. How you deal with it is important though. You've calmed down now? Good. The way to go about it is to call up and calmly explain how pissed off you are, how you think this is unaccetable, etc. But for god's sake, don't crack it at them, no matter how much they dick you around. Also, remember it is your right to talk to the manager if you believe they are doing an inferior job. Which the driver obviously is.

Best of luck dude. Hope it goes well

I didn't run to the letterbox with great urgency. When I went into the porch to get it, the van was just disappearing around the corner at the bottom of the street.

I didn't see him coming.

Even if I did see him, and didn't go to the door, there's still no excuse for him not to ring the bell and attempt to deliver the item though, is there?

May i ask what was you doing at the time?
If you didnt see him comeing. Then how did you know he got out of the van walked over put the letter in the door and drove off?
Maybe he got out and knocked the door not knowing there was a doorbell?

But anyhow.If you want the guitar that much, I would go down get the guitar. Then give them hell. Cause they might crap in the box if you give them hell then get the guitar

I extrapolated the idea that he came out of his van and didn't bother trying to deliver, from the fact that the bell wasn't rung.

Even if he'd have knocked the door, I reckon I'd have heard it seeing as I heard the letterbox rattle.

When I rang them it was just a computer that I pressed a couple of buttons to say I was coming to collect it tonight, I shall notify them of the situation. I've already emailed them a complaint and the reply said they'll get hold of the manager to give the driver a bollocking.

Lol guys. I just want to tell you a cool story about my workday.

So today was a boring-ass day as any other(which is the reason I hate my job) and by the end of my shift I was so pissed I decided to **** over the last customer by slipping in an "Attempted" delivery notice under his door. I was tired as hell and I was supposed to carry a ****ing guitar to his door and wait for him?! **** that! So anyway. I put the notice under his door and drove away asap. Just around the corner of the street, I pull over, leave the car and take my binoculars. I went across the street behind a house corner and spied on the little kid. So I look into his room with the binoculars and I see the guy's fuming and making weird face gestures all the while typing something furiously. So at first I think that he's wanking or something but it turns out he's looking for some ****ing justice or something. Arrogant rich bastards, I say! Thinking they're the kings on the hill and everyone else is a bunch of lowlifes!

And I....

...****! I got a call from my boss! That ****ing **** tried to shove **** down my throat by complaining?! I'll ****ing murder the kid! Good thing I keep my axe under my seat. That bitch is gonna get it!!!

I'll post later with pics of the massacre.

Have a nice day/evening, y'all

I understand that, it just frankly doesn't seem like it's worth getting mad over. If you had actually been working, then that's one thing. You can always chill with friends tomorrow, though. The fact that you would lie about that is pretty despicable, imo.
