Not many have a fleet of trucks and able bodies at beckon call.

Onus is on whatever fly by night delivery service they put reliance on.

Still shadows the store yet, not entirely their fault. Just my toonie.
I know, and the company is trying to blame the trucking company, who btw are holding $3000+ in appliances hostage.
Maybe tomorrow they'll receive their purchase. And of course the thrill of buying these? It's gone.

Had a very brief talk with one of them. It was brief because she is livid.

Waiting since Saturday.
Still no appliances. :swear: :cuss: :swear:

Oh, and she has to drive 15+ km on slick roads to get to a restaurant.

By this point I’d cancel the order, phone up MasterCard, tell them to reverse charges.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Nobody delivers out where they are, and apparently that includes appliance companies.

Our complex is non-smoking of any and all substances. :up:
Though I have felt a little guilty at times when the BBQ is puffing away. :biggrin:

I agree. I'm asthmatic and smoke of any kind is problematic. If he has a designated smoking area, he should just go use that and stop with the kvetching.
I haven't failed until I quit.

The Useless Trucking Company, UTC, and the Big American Box Store, BABS, still can't get their act together.
UTC showed up yesterday without announcing they were coming, and of course no one was home.
So the BABS says they will send someone out with the appliances last night. Another no show.

Maybe today. [icon_lol2.gif]

Can the BABS be more unreliable?

The Gong Show continues.

The UTC showed up today with both appliances, but one was damaged. :200:
So this family still does not have a range.

Will the fat lady ever sing?

I need to learn how to make multiple accounts like everyone else.
Wait… does that mean I’d then be a lunatic like them then 🤔

I feel your pain. Took one store 6 months to get it together and get it right. They know it’s damaged when it leaves the store but still had it delivered.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

I went through that with a brand new delivered dryer. Scratches on the side. I told them, "If I wanted to buy second hand looking stuff, I would have bought second hand stuff, take it BACK and re-place it." They did but I won't step foot in there now.
As WW3 develops, no one is going to be dissing the "preppers." What have you done?
