Does anyone else find, that day to day living is a minefield of utter incompetence? Make phone calls to change address, be assured new details noted. What happens? You wait in all afternoon, ring to ask where they have got to to be told (wait for it) we found nobody in when we called!! Gone to old address of course. You ask, did nobody think to phone,having of course told them initially that phone still same. After all they had rung you to arrange visit!! GRRRRRRRRRR rant over.

I had that once and it was because they used SatNav and had gone to the wrong street but correct house number. He did not believe I was in.

We had a delivery the other day - without even knocking at the front door they threw the package over the garden wall, where I happened to be painting a door, and hit me on the head. That's what I call service.

Home Delivery Network. Has anybody else noticed how mad their drivers are? They must have attended the Bodie and Doyle School of Motoring.

Funny you should mention Home Delivery Network one of their drivers ploughed into my boyfriend's car in Anchor Lane, Barcombe - full of apologies at the scene and and then denied responsibility afterwards!

Lol, Clifford, I'm afraid that really made me laugh! It's like something out of a slapstick comedy. I hope your head didn't suffer too much damage.
I have had a recent saga of total incompetence on the part of hospital staff in the appointments department. I swear they should just put a diary on a website and let us all book our own.

Poor Clifford hope you are ok. It does seem though, that whatever you do it gets mucked up in someway.

Ha. Home Delivery Network drivers are really terrible. I met one coming too fast round a corner who had to drive through the hedge to avoid hitting my (by then all but stationary) car. Then he tried to blame me!    Another on Anchor Lane hit the car of the last owner of The Anchor Inn whilst coming round a 90 degree blind bend on the wrong side of the road.   I guess it can't have been the same accident squidward was talking about because Mike is married.   ;-)

Hey, I thought this thread was going to be all about the England manager. For once it's better to be a rugby supporter than a follower of the beautiful game.

Home Delivery Network are the most useless of them all. We never bother calling them to arrange a redelivery - they'll just cock it up - and we always end up driving to Newhaven to collect the parcel. When you get there its a shambles- parcels all over the floor, not arranged or anything. If you get delivery notes for two parcels, don't be fobbed off by them telling you its the same parcel even if the delivery # is different. This has happened to us.

the problem is there drivers are made to do 190/210 deliveries a day in a 11 hr time limit and that is imposible.....i knewe a lad who worked there and got the sack cause they said he couldnt do the job....thats why they rush so much.
