    Smeg Engineer Failed To Keep Appointment

    Smeg Engineer Failed To Keep Appointment 17th Jul 17 at 2:40 PM
    Regarding my faulty Smeg cooker, an engineer called me this morning between 9am/9.30am to say he'd been round just after 1pm.

    So far, he's failed to turn up.

    My other half took a day off work.

    He's lost 3 and a half hours overtime.

    What are our rights if the doesneer doesn't turn up at all?

    Thanks.

    a bit sharp to complain on here

    he'd been round just after 1pm
    you post on here at 1:40 PM

    he could have been delayed at previous job or he could be stuck in traffic

    You will see that as you were planning to take a day off today, you have not yet suffered a loss.
    You will however be able to claim for lost earning for any rescheduled appointment.

    If he doesn't come by 4pm, I've got a contact I can ring at Curry to report it.

    Its the principle he's not turned up, the engineer has my phone number so he has no excuse not to phone me if there is a problem with him coming.

    This cooker is only 9 months old, things are not made to last anymore!!

    Accident at work.

    Accident travelling

    Delayed on job, no battery.

    No signal.

    Health issue.

    I could list thousands of reasons why i wouldnt ring someone i had an appointment with. From tripped over a duck and ended up in hospital to ate a turnip and ended up projectile vomiting in to a vicars face.

    I was just saying theres lots of reasons why he couldve missed the appointment and not called you.

    also the time posts are set is through the forum settings and not by users computers.

    it is the forum settings that are wrong as at the bottom it states

    All times are GMT. The time now is 3:43 PM

    we are in BST which is

    16:47
    Monday, 17 July 2017
    British Summer Time (BST)

    Nope the bottom of the forum for me shows as

    All times are GMT +1. The time is now 4:54pm

    It is your settings

    If you go into your user control panel, under time and date mine is set to automatically detect DST changes, maybe yours is set to manual and needs changing.
