I know I’m supposed to be on hiatus and I totally still am but this was too stupid an occurrence for me to not post about it.
The story goes like this:
I ordered somebody a Christmas present from Lakeland.co.uk. then received a letter a few days later telling me it was out of stock and some crap about ‘A Big Thank You Coupon’ and a ‘Kitchen 4 Catalogue’.
Fairly annoyed that they hadn’t bothered to mention stock level when I ordered, I just hoped it would get shipped out in time.
Then today I received this box:
|CD is just for size reference. It’s a copy of Linux Puppy, in case that helps.|
Assuming the item had come back into stock as quickly as I hoped, I proceeded to open up this rather large box.
Do you know what was inside? It certainly wasn’t the present I was hoping for.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, they sent me what is tantamount to an empty box. They sent me this large box, complete with packaging I might add, so they could rush me my ‘A Big Thank You Coupon’ and ‘Kitchen 4 Catalogue’.
What. The. Fuck.
Not only have they sent me a large box for no reason at all, by courier, they will have to send me another one when my item comes back into stock. I just cannot understand why anybody would pack and send this box. It has packing material in it, for fuck sake!
I just had to share this piece of utter idiocy. Hiatus back on from…… Now. Unless something else like this happens, of course.
Oh and, Mum? Your present may be a little late…
