Posted by sean on May 7, 2014 at 10:49 pm in Me Vs. The World, Shopping with No Comments


I thought it was about time I smartened myself up. Granted, I don’t look like a tramp. OK, maybe a well-groomed hobo, but I am not flash or dapper. Therefore, I decided to buy myself a new outfit. This outfit will be reserved for special occasions – meals out, parties and all the other sophisticated evens I (never) get invited to.

I was lucky enough to have been given vouchers for John Lewis for my birthday in March. Therefore, after spending a while on Amazon, my usual clothes supplier (yes, I know, I know!), I decided to go shopping at Johnny’s and ordered myself a fancy shirt, a pair of jeans and a top.

John Lewis is an expensive shop, but is of exceptional quality. I won’t say how much my clothes cost! Needless to say, I’ve NEVER spent that much on a shirt and NEVER will again. Claire was kind enough to wait in for my clothes to me delivered today. I had a delivery. This delivery consisted of a fancy shirt and a pair if jeans. Where was my top? Where the hell was my top? My lush, dapper, expensive top?

I rang Johnny’s. Mr. Lewis confirmed that the top had been packaged separately and couldn’t explain why they had not both been delivered. So basically, the courier had fucked up. That courier was City Link. Looking at City Link’s Twitter bio, they describe themselves as “reliable”. Based on personal experience, including issues I’ve had in the past with the same courier, this is a self-proclaimed accolade.

John Lewis are going to try and contact Shitty, I mean City Link, tomorrow and then track down my very expensive top! I have nothing against John Lewis, although do wish they would use a more reliable courier. As I mentioned earlier, from personal experience, I have found City Link to be far from satisfactory.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
