OK, in a completely unrelated online shopping incident, a parcel due to be delivered today has gone the wrong address. I know this because it says on the tracking website it's been delivered to a neighbour, with their house number and their name... and they're not my neighbours.

Should I move house? I didn't realise it was so hard to find. Also, the first parcel is still missing! :evil:

That's crazy! Maybe you can talk to the local postmaster, or someone at whichever delivery service you're using, to straighten this out?

They're couriers, so there's no rules :roll: Parcel 2 turned up, yay! Parcel 1 could be anywhere *sigh*

What about contacting the company that sent it? Is there a tracking number? If the couriers aren't delivering and the companies get complaints, maybe they'll do something about it.

We're on it, but the company is dealing with a courier that couldn't even be bothered to get the address right :roll: They won't want to send out another parcel without knowing where the first one got to. They tried to get Mr Dotsie to chase it up, but he pointed out that his contract is with them, not the couriers, so it's their problem. Go Mr Dotsie! And he doesn't even have a handbag!

He's probably got a ManBag.

He does have a manbag, for those times when I just won't carry his wallet/keys/phone/camera/whatever he wants to buy. Dunno what Batty's on about though! :shock:

The 2nd bag from the left isn't bad. The other three.... Don't know what Batty's on about either, and I'm thinking it's best we never find out.

As long as you keep it zipped, that's safer than carrying a cell phone in your pocket.
