Damn postal couriers, can’t do a simple task of delivering my order on time…

Earlier in the week, I ordered (via a friend) a KVM Switch and a NIC Card to network an old PC of mine to my router.

I was told it would be delivered yesterday (Friday) and was today planning on connecting it up, reinstalling Windows XP and having a fresh, clean PC system.

The online retailer who the order was placed with dispatched the parts on time via a well known courier – let’s just call them Shitty Link.

Now, all the courier had to do was keep to their schedule and I would have had my order. That would mean instead of moaning now on my blog, I would be networking. But oh no, they couldn’t do a simple task, my parts are probably in some depot in Bristol!

This annoyance got me asking the question “How hard is it to transport a package from Location #A to Location #B”. Obviously not very; walk through any park in any town or city in Britain and you’ll see a man and his dog. The man will throw the ball to his dog. The dog will collect the ball and return it to his over. A simple enough task, even an animal as thick as a dog can do it, so why can’t these bloody couriers!!??

Maybe I should have placed ordered through Fido

Anyway, that’s my rant over with, hopefully Super Leeds United can cheer me up and beat The Seagulls AKA Brighton this afternoon. Leeds lost to Brighton last year in a dismal performance – I do NOT want to see that again.

Its not that I want to kill the Seagulls, I just want to beat them 50-0

C’mon Leeds!

  • 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.
