    Minor rant DPD 16th Jul 17 at 1:44 PM
    Rant on
    Had a delivery from Amazon scheduled for delivery today.
    DPD send me a message saying that it will probably be put on the van at usually at 11. Great i can have a lie in, i thought.
    Got up at 10 to find messages saying they tried to deliver at 8:37.
    Bloody annoyed as i could have been up and waiting had i thougt it would be delivered that early.

    Rant off

    Did you not track the item, also DPD always give you an hr slot and i know our local DPD driver does not pick his van up until 8am.
    Then never load at 11am

    How do you know when DPD load their vans?
    Just because I've written it doesn't mean that
    either you or I have to believe it.

    I was tracking it, i just happened to be asleep at 8:30, when i wasnt expecting it.

    As i said in my op if they hadn't mentioned 11 i would have been up at 8 ready for the 1 hr delivery text

    British Gas arranged to change my meter, and I asked for an afternoon appointment, so I could take a half day of holiday.
    Arrived home at 12 noon, to find a card saying "you were out".
    Called Customer Services to confirm that they definitely wouldn't arrive before 12 noon.
    "So, how is it that . . ."
