The amount of expensive electronics I have arrive in plastic bags is fucking infuriating as they always end up damaged. Very, Currys and the Panasonic store on ebay are all guilty of this.

Well Argos have really let me down, no movement on my order at all and with no text/email I can only assume I'm not getting one from them at all. Thankfully a friend who I had pre-ordered in Smyths for has been gracious and let me have his. He only wanted one on a whim but is happy not to be spending so much near Christmas. I feel I owe him a few beers.

 

Smyths was odd, only 1 person in store at a time and I had to take off my mask to confirm my photo ID.

 

As for the machine, the setup was quicker than I expected and had time for a quick half hour on Watchdogs that looks so much better than the One X version.

 

Amazon have also been so I now have the Plug and Play kit, blue controller and Ac Valhalla to keep me occupied.

Argos have let me down too, but as its an xmas pressie for one of the kids I can wait.  The other order is out for delivery from Amazon.

Royal Mail is taking a lot longer due to covid. I've had stuff from them early evenings lately 

 

I know, my mate's a postie, services have basically collapsed in Bristol as so many of the depot staff are off isolating or sick.

I decided to wait on the chat app and got through to someone who gave me the tracking info as I hadn't received anything either. Though I did receive a couple of emails a few days ago informing me that DHL would be delivering, and the emails were from "Important Information" rather than Argos in the title. Might be worth checking your junk mail?

 

 In other news it seems Microsoft simply didn't send UPS my full details so now I have to wait. Even more galling is that if you try and contact the MS store support page, they only list what looks like a U.S number for U.K residents? Twats

How long did it take dude?

 

I've been waiting since half 9 for someone to talk to me and still nothing. I've even Tweeted them and still no response.

On the chat app on their site it said 30 minutes but it was more like 45. I just left it open until someone replied.

Nothing there at all and my order is stuck in limbo. Going to have to brave the chat and request a refund.

DPD delivered a parcel here

a second DPD van came and delivered over the road (this was our usual DPD driver, leading me to think they do have extra folk working today)

Royal Mail have just delivered to a neighbour

i got home and a white van was on the drive. It was the window cleaner.

 

Anyone else wanna swing by? UPS maybe? DHL?

It’s here. Was from Amazon, smile link and was in an odd far away depot this morning for those in similar situations.

What time did they say they would deliver versus time of actual delivery? Dare I nap?
