Tracking info:
17-06-2011   16:21  Glasgow Central Depot  Collected from customer

17-06-2011   17:12   Glasgow Central Depot   Forwarded for processing

21-06-2011    14:31    Depot    Delivered

Except it was delivered to one of the business units on the farm 400m away. I tried three times to get it back but the unit was never occupied
Fri 24.06.11 - I rang Parcel Farce - Matt, "Leave it with me, I'll chase it up and get back to you today - He didn't

Mon 27.06.11 - I rang Parcel Farce again - Barry "Leave it with me, I'll chase it up and get back to you today - He didn't

Tue 28.06.11 I rang Parcel Farce again - Dave "Leave it with me, I'll chase it up and get back to you today
JOM - "that's what Matt said on Friday and what Barry said yesterday, do you have any intention of ringing me back?"
Dave - I promise I will ring you back, what's your number?
JOM - You should already have it, Matt and Barry were going to call me on it!
Dave - There's no record of your number on the paperwork
JOM -  cussing:  cussing:  cussing:
Ten minutes later Dave calls - "The driver will pick it up today and deliver it to you"
As it was exactly one week after it was signed for I took a trip up to the unit later yesterday in case they only visited weekly.... "Ooh you've just missed Parcel Farce, he collected it five minutes ago, sorry for the confusion"
As of now, I'm still waiting, he must have took it back to the depot Banghead  Banghead  Banghead  Banghead  Banghead

Just checked on the delivery of a package. The tracking information states:

"Your parcel has been received at our sortation hub" 

"sortation" ?


All part of calling distribution "Logistics" Uncle.  whistle:

I'm still waiting on a package that was allegedly senf on the 15th.  I could have walked to the guy abd picked it up in person faster than this.  evil:

I get a call from UPS...

UPS: Mr. barman, we have a parcel for you... come to the police station to collect it.
BM: No, I'm in Larnaca
UPS: How many minutes will it take you top get here?
BM: I won't be there for hours... bring it back tomorrow
UPS: We can't deliver tomorrow - you must come to Limassol to collect it!
BM: No!  evil:
UPS: We leave it at the police station - you can collect it from there!
UPS: (calling back) the police will not accept it
BM: leave it at the restaurant up the road then
UPS:  happy088
BM: collects parcel from restaurant to find he has ordered the wrong fucking part!  Banghead
