TNT are messing with my head

On Tuesday I got home to find two non-delivery notes from TNT, one telling me a parcel had been taken back to the depot, and another saying there was a parcel with a neighbour. As I was only expecting one parcel I naturally assumed that the second note superceded the first, and therefore dutifully ignored it.

Today I got home and found an answerphone message from TNT saying they still had a parcel for me, I assumed they’d cocked up the paperwork because of the two non-delivery notes, and rang them to say so. After speaking to several different people, they couldn’t actually work out why anyone had rung me, however they insisted they still had a parcel for me. At this point I realised that the Dell speakers I didn’t really want anyway hadn’t actually been delivered. After protracted negotiations, TNT said they’d redeliver the remaining package tomorrow, all well and good.

However I then headed out to Sainsburys, and on my way saw my neighbour who promptly handed me the parcel containing the missing speakers.

I’ve no idea what TNT think they are delivering tomorrow, and I’ve got even less idea why they sent the PC and speakers out on seperate deliveries on Tuesday.

    There is no news.

    As I suspected, TNT haven’t actually got anything left to deliver to me.

  8. Father says:

    After all that! I would demand that they deliver you nothing properly! And make you sign for it!
    Bah, humbug. You didn’t get service like this in my day. We had it hard. You never knew they were coming with anything, let alone with nothing!
