Right going to have a rant - Snows just started, will be here for at least a week.  Ordered snow tyres a week ago from UK to be delivered to the company which brings goodies over for us ex pats (tescos etc), checked the tracking of the order, says "tried to deliver, but wrong addess" NO IT IS NOT!!!!!!!!!!!.  Tried to call them, press 1 if blah blah, press 2 if such and such, pressed 2, keyed in my order number as machine requested, then was told (all recorded messages!!) that someone would call me back.  Well it deffo was not a British voice, so are they allowed to call France??  E-mailed them and have heard nothing back  GGGRRRRRRRaarghaarghaargh

Oh dear!  I recommend that you have a fag and a glass of wine and by the time you've finished you'll have had a call from them.

I'll try that again!

Don't smoke too many, you won't want to run out.  Do you get them there or are they delivered with your Tesco order?

I'll try that again!

I get them here a bit cheaper than UK 5.10 euros £4.27, still got my inhalator TA if all else fails.  The thing that really worrying is that I have an appt with a kyropractor (spelling!!)cos I've got the nerve in my spine trapped in 3 places at my neck(had to have an MRI to find it) had 3 cortisone injections, which have just taken the edge of it.  So am basically settee bound, and don't really want to miss the appt if necessary due to snow.   Hence the "fed up"yell

There is a rather good Jimmy Buffet/Alan Jackson song called "Its 5 O'Clock Somewhere"

Deep breathing, and worse case senario, take their advice....big_hug

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Michelle, that song always makes me smile.

Fiona, I hope you manage to get to the chiropractor, that sounds like a pretty painful condition you have there.  Fingers crossed for you m'dear.

I'll try that again!

 Did they show up? You're absolutely right, you need to make that appointment!

Did you consider acupuncture? It helped me when I took my fall, (I went face first down a set of stairs, very exciting).

P.S. Did you know there is a spell check in the tool bar when you reply? Last button to the right in the tool bar.

My laptop does it automatically for me, perhaps it's Google Chrome that does it?  Mind you, some of the alternatives it throws up for words not in its vocabulary are nuts.

I'll try that again!

wave  Good song Michelle.  Like TA, it makes me smile.  smile

 

Hope you stop being 'fed up' soon, Fiona.  The ride on the broomstick tonight should sort you out.  ( one way or another!!!!  big_laugh  )

I know, even the spell check offered on the forum offers some alternates that I wonder about.....

I'll throw up a word thinking I'll spell check it since I know its wrong, and the silly thing will offer words that aren't even close to what I was trying to say.what_the_heck
