Gone are the days when I did my shopping myself; a natural thing to do. In Winter this is no longer possible due to weather conditions. I thought I could manage the short train trip to the store, just one station, but realised it would not be possible and so I now have the goods brought to me.
However today was a muddle. Now and again the store cannot deliver what I need. This happened last week when I did not receive the meat I needed for the next day’s dinner. Luckily my son was able to go into town and fetch it. I always receive a confirmation of my order before they deliver and today all my cold cut dishes were missing, not a slice of ham to be seen. My son to the rescue again and he brought me some meat from town for the evening meal. In the meanwhile I placed an order for what was missing for next day delivery as it was shown as being available. I wrote to the customer service in the meanwhile and complained. I got an immediate answer that due to the snow the transport was delayed with meat and dairy supplies to their shop, with their apology. I explained that I was dependent on their deliveries for my meals. Eventually my delivery arrived later in afternoon, even containing two of the articles that were apparently not available. This was now a complete muddle. Tomorrow I will be receiving another delivery of the goods that should have been missing, but were apparently found. Online buying can be quite muddling sometimes.RDP Monday: Muddle
