:shock: erm . . . the next Monday 9th November is 2020 . . .
I know that government's cuts have decimated the NHS's ability to meet targets, but a 2 year wait? Let's hope it's just some daft bugger who can't read a calendar!

Apparently, it’s actually for Friday 9th November. The secretary was doing the lists for two different consultants, one of whom has clinics on Fridays, the other on Mondays and she got mixed up! It means I have the weekend to recover before I’m back in work, so quite pleased about that.

I ordered a blu ray (deadpool 2) and the dresden files tv show (previous copy vanished) from the jungle place saturday evening 9 days ago.
On tuesday i got a text from postii requesting delivery informaiton and amazon assured me it was "due today" as it was in a carrier facility in germany at 5 am.
The "Due today" then updated to wednewday
then thursday
then friday
do you statr to see a pattern here?
So when i got back from the con yesterday, i opened their chat (the chat i had opened tuesday promised me a refund) and pointed out it was now a week past the original delivery date.
Result ,today i got both a refund of the full cost and the iterms
happy phaze

Received my Unbound copy of Bobby Llew's latest autobiographical musings a few days ago. I've learned a disturbing amount about Mr. Llewelyn's penis. Brain bleach may be required.
