I Shouldn't Be Surprised

One of my Spamazon orders was noted as dispatched on Monday. For no reason at all that I can fathom, it's being shipped by ShittyLink, despite being a normal first-class-post job that normally the Royal Mail don't fuck up too badly.

Ahh, but this is ShittyLink. Going by their website, the goods were out today and returned after an unsuccessful delivery. Except J's been in all day and they never attempted a delivery. Par for the course with these morons.

Checking Amazon's tracking site clues me in: the depot in question is in Milton Fucking Keynes. That's a thirteen hour round trip, over seven hundred miles. Which is bloody stupid, as there's a depot out near the Gyle.

Anyone on my flist had any luck at kicking ShittyLink until they spit out an actual package rather than the crap that's all their website offers?

How odd. That's almost exactly what happened to me yesterday, except that their driver rang before running - Phil walked all the way from the back of the flat and found nobody on the other end of the entryphone.

They're redelivering tomorrow, and I plan to be on the roof with a sniper rifle sitting by the window watching closely.

Good luck with the rifle. They may be packing body-armour, so start practicing for headshots.

Found a phone number for a human and arranged a redelivery. And if I have to do so again, I'm going to take a postal address and mention initiating legal action.

I ended up getting the local holding depot address and going to the middle of nowhere to get my parcel because they failed to find my house twice and I couldn't stand it anymore. They really do suck.

Ill second the 'go to the damn depot'; its actually more or less on a bus route (unless that was too convenient and they moved it).

The only time I've actually had things delivered by them on the first try I was sitting in the damn window watching until they showed up.

They told me that they could only hold it at the local office: Livingstone. If they miss today's delivery, I'm telling them to send it to the fucking Gyle.
