MrsSB birthday today (Friday) and last weekend I decided to buy her a new tennis racquet.
I found the one I wanted on Monday morning and bought from an ebay shop who shipped using Royal Mail 1st class signed for delivery (according to the item description) so I reckoned I should receive it maybe Wednesday but probably Thursday (as estimated by ebay).
On Wednesday I hadn't received any shipping confirmation or other emails from the shop so I sent them a message requesting confirmation that my purchase had been shipped - no reply.
Yesterday I called them and they couldn't find a dispatch note but rang me back 30 mins later to say that they had sent it out on Wednesday afternoon using Myhermes. For those that don't know, Myhermes is a 3-5 day service.
So I've now had to tell my wife that her present hasn't arrived and she reckons I didn't order it until Wednesday! Luckily I had bought her something else (that she likes) from the kids so I'm not completely screwed.
Anyway, on the basis that the crappy company took two days to dispatch the item and sent it using a much slower service than advertised they are going to get some negative feedback from me as I wouldn't have used them if it hadn't said they shipped first class.
Am I bad man?
