What is it about delivery people? First of all that nonsense about we can't pin it down to less than a 12 hour window... bullshit! Someone is drawing up a schedule of when the truck is leaving Comet or Ikea or whatever and if they have an ounce of common sense they'd draw up a route serving the places nearest followed by the others in the vicinity.
Yesterday we ordered a washing machine from Kitchen Science and they said it would come between 7am and 7pm today. Ho hum. But this bunch took the biscuit - they rang us on our mobile phone at 7am and told us This is Kitchen Science, just to let you know we will pin your delivery down to this afternoon between 1pm and 5pm, thought you'd like to know in case you wanted a lie in! A lie in??? - you just bloody phoned us at 7am on a Saturday morning!

I can only assume Kitchen Science must be cheap ,,? Otherwise why didn't you tell them to shove their washing machine up their arses ??
