"THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN GETTING NEW CAR PARTS DELIVERED. BUT THERE'S ALSO NOTHING WORSE THAN UNRELIABLE DELIVERY FIRMS PISSING YOU ABOUT BEFOREHAND"
If there’s one thing that can spoil the wonderful feeling of your new wheels arriving, it’s the bumbling fool who’s delivering them. I especially love it when you get a text message thoughtfully informing you the driver will be with you between 6am and 2pm. Well thanks for being so bloody precise.
You literally can’t do anything until they’ve arrived, because your parcel will be back in their van or thrown behind your neighbour’s bin quicker than you can say “overnight parts from Japan”.
You can’t even have a shower, in the unlikely event they turn up at the earlier part of the ridiculous time slot. (Has that ever happened to anyone, or do they arrive at 1:55pm for everyone else too?).
And you just know they’re going to push that bell the very second you start pushing out last night’s Korma. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve had to speed wipe to get to the front door in time. But don’t worry, I always shake the guy’s hand afterwards. I’m nice like that!
