Ev­ery­thing I buy seems to be faulty

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

WHY is it that nearly ev­ery­thing I buy seems to be faulty these days?

I bought a new bed and in three months you could feel the springs stick­ing through.

I no­ti­fied the store and they sent a “mattress in­spec­tor” who im­me­di­ately agreed to ex­change it.

The next mattress was just as bad and another “mattress in­spec­tor” turned up again and there was no ar­gu­ment so I was given a credit note to go and choose a new mattress.

I paid another £ 350 and it is start­ing to be un­com­fort­able.

I bought a four- slice toaster and af­ter a week one side would not work so I took it back and changed it.

Two weeks later I had the same prob­lem, only this time I had lost the re­ceipt but the store still changed it and now it has gone again.

I bought a can opener which was rub­bish.

My brother- in- law also bought a can opener and that did not work ei­ther.

My lap­top has been back to the sup­pli­ers three times and my mo­bile phone has been back once, all in the space of 12 months.

Now I went and bought a new fat fryer and, you guessed it, it is faulty, so it will be back to the store with it.

I paid £ 10 for a new saucepan which was sup­posed to be guar­an­teed for ten years and the han­dle is loose...

I could go on but I think you get the pic­ture.

We seem to be a mass- pro­duced world of faulty goods to­day so what ever hap­pened to qual­ity con­trol? Name and ad­dress sup­plied
