I ordered some more memory for my wonderful (but memory deficient) computer on Monday. Being a internet friendly kind of chap I bought it online. On Monday evening I received two emails saying that my order had been confirmed and then that it had been dispatched. Yay! Both emails contained a small section saying that basically I should expect to receive the goods within two days. Yay Yay! A couple of days passed and nothing. Another day nothing. You get the gist, goddamn internet shopping let me down again. After another day I sent them a snotty email saying that they should rethink their whole life’s purpose and pull up their socks and tie their laces etc etc. Anyway it turns out it had arrived and the person who signed for it just hadn’t told me yet. Doh!
Internet shopping, it pays not to be too paranoid about it.
