So I ordered a new car battery (not a light thing) and the company delivering said there was no-one at home, would try again tomorrow. I was sat at home (a very rural house) waiting. |
Same again the next day.... emailed me to say "No-one at home", with me sat, sitting, watching my front gate.
On the third day, they emailed saying "Parcel delivered!"....what??
I'm sat, LOOKING at my front gate....and No-one had arrived, let alone delivered a car battery.
I called the company, and asked WHERE the driver had delivered it to, and could they just ring the driver?
The answer? Have you checked with your neighbor's?
My nearest neighbor is 300 yards away, beyond that, another half mile...So I walked down the lane, and nothing had been delivered, so I carried on to the next place (she actually breeds Arab horses). No, no delivery.
Whereupon I got a phone call, from a Lady that lives even further (down a cul-de-sac, leading off my lane) saying she had a parcel for me!!
So off I set, now about 1 1/2 miles from my house. The Lady said that it was rather odd, when she got home, and opened her gate to the drive(SIX foot high electric thing) she was surprised to find a parcel on her front door step!!!!
THIS is where the driver had tried to deliver to, TWICE, then finally decided to climb said 6 foot high gate, to deliver the parcel....
The phrase "I can't get my breath!!" springs to mind
