Grrr.... I'm pissed off with Insight (UK) and Citylink, and very slightly with Liz (my flatmate and friend).
I told Liz Monday eve's that stuff (ADSL gear + my 8-port6 switch/stuff, 2 deliveries) was coming Tuesday, asked whether she'd be in during the morning 'cos I was working till 1.50pm. She said she would be, but she had a dentist's appointment in the noon and I watched her book a cab to go in for it at 1.30pm. Fair enough, and she mentioned she could leave a note for that gap (1.30 to soon after 1.50) in case they turned up then.
So I get back soon after 1.50. No note anywhere, no delivery left anywhere, so I wait.
3.30pm ish, my ADSL modem turns up from Demon. Cool!! So I start to play. A while later the service is live + converted from dial-up and I'm sorting out my connection.
The time gets to 5.30, I'm thinking "where the hell is my switch?". I know they can deliver until 6.30, cos I checked when it might turn up. Nothing.
By 6.30 I'm pissed off that I spent £10 on P&P and it's not here, especially after Insight not being very good at actioning the order after an update to my details (when it should all have gone through - it was ready to be invoiced/delivered end of last week).
Gets a little later; the next door neighbour pops round and drops it off - they'd passed it to him at 11.30am.... So why didn't Liz take it in????????????????? Eh????
This morning I found out she'd gone in during the morning. No note, no message to say so on my mobile, nothing!!! Ok, hard to tell me on a call what with me being not that disturbable by calls at work; but she could have left a message....
Not the first time she's done it either - when she knows an important delivery is coming and said she'd be in, then just disappeared without trace - I've said to the delivery people someone will be in, and given my no. to be called on in case; and been called and had to rush back from work to let them in cos she wasn't in. Grrr....
Citylink should also have left a card to let me know they'd tried to deliver it too though, and that it was next door.
Sorry, just had to get this off my chest.
