Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I have just answered the door to two very official-looking gentlemen holding a large brown envelope and a warning sticker on there jacket saying video and audio asking for Mrs xxxx. I said next door (nasty neighbour)

Then I said I think you have forgotten something and they looked at me with great confusion and then I said your van is parked is parked on private ground could you please remove it.

This does annoy myself and my other 3 neighbours who own this service road and maintains it between us as when a vehicle is parked here it blocks all our driveways especially the other 3 households were not so bad. I usually don't say anything and leave this to my other neighbour but today I made a exception just because of who they were visiting as this will really annoy her that they came to my door. Although I do wonder what the old girl has been up to now. I know she is having problems with the her neighbour on the other side as he came to our door a few weeks ago asking if she did this us and the answer was Oh yes.

Since the men has visited she has been very verbal on the phone shouting at some poor sod who has had the misfortune of answering her call.

In regards to people parking on our service road, I mean is it really that hard not to see that parking here will block not only one driveway but 3 others not to mention that it's clearly private property.

Here is a picture from my living room window.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Had similar over the weekend. Workmen working next door parked their Transit half way across my drive for no apparent reason other than being lazy, inconsiderate morons. There was plenty of room to park without blocking me in but idiots like this just don't give a toss about anyone else.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

The trouble with me Osem I feel bad asking them to move whereas hubby has no problem at all as he just shouts hey mate you can't park there, same as next door her hubby also has no problem at all asking someone to move.

My neighbour and I have been known to say each other I hope it gets moved before we need to go out, or we phone through to each other and ask how long it's been parked there then we moan about it, yet we still usually do nothing LOL

Good luck with that Den.

I had one (totally unnecessary I believe but hey ho...) before my surgery and the only thing which I found unpleasant was that I started to feel a bit claustrophobic after a few minutes. Mind you I'm quite a big guy so that didn't help matters...

I've calmed down a lot. Once upon a time I'd do the same but I've decided the stress isn't worth a coronary event...

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Returning items to Amazon seems to have become such a chore. It's not ideal when the cowboy "lifestyle" courier firm they use can't be bothered turning up to collect the package then lies about you not being home.

Maybe the horse took them to the wrong house. Yeeeehaw!

Hope the MRI scan went well Denphone.

I went for one once but couldn't go through with it because of severe claustrophobia, they also wanted to put a cage over my face and head, what a nightmare.

Yes the scan went fine for her as she like you and some others does not suffer from claustrophobia as yes Tinky its certainly not very nice when one feels deeply enclosed in having one of these scans.

Yes I recently took out a Prime trial and then cancelled it. Ordered a few things about half of which didn't come the next day as promised. Even though at the time of order and most of the subsequent day they were showing as being 'delivered today' they hadn't even been dispatched so I knew I wasn't going to get them. I'd guess 50% of our deliveries are left outside our porch in full view of anyone passing by and quite often they don't even ring the bell to see if we're in (and most of the timesome one is in). It's very poor really.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

@ den thinking of you

@ Osem yes I took that offer and also cancelled within the trial period. I found it quite good service tbh, everything we ordered did arrive the next day but I just could not justify the cost for our needs tbh.

Bank Of Scotland internet banking seems to be down atm. I'm on the phone to them as I type been currently waiting so far just over 15 minutes. Internet banking is good but when it's down it sure is a real pain.

I ended up cancelling the return for the second time and sending it back using a proper courier out of my own pocket which Amazon will reimburse to a point.

The reason I'm returning this item is because it should have had three separate components but Amazon logistics (whoever they are on any given day of the week) only delivered one of them. It's not even Christmas yet. If they can't manage to fulfil a simple delivery now God only knows how bad it's going to be in a couple of weeks time. They really have gone down the pan.

I've had Prime for 2 years now, and I've bought a load from them (about £3,000).

But been buying for 10 years, in that time I've had 1 wrong item which was sorted without issue, and one not received, but this was around Christmas.

Since Prime I have only had 1 item not delivered next day and that was my most recent order, but it turned up the day after.

TBH I only got Prime for The Grand Tour. Next day delivery was a bonus.
