Think me ruined someones Xmas via Tesco

Post by bzb » Sun Dec 20, 2009 11:25 pm

Needed a few bits an pieces and let my mother loose to take care of all those things that you dont really need but have to have at Xmas.

Being a man I find it quite sensible to check that the shopping can be delivered before wasting my life, in the female world things are slightly different.
Anyway, by the time she'd finished shopping there were no delivery slots left, slightly annoying. However, I do quite like 'the plan' to come together so decided to check back 2 hours later (2 hours being the longest you can pre-book a slot for before you have to place your order).

I know it can take me more than an hour to do the shopping on-line and I only do it once a month, so a standard unemployed fat fingered person from Bedford must take at least four hours- by my math. Hence i rechecked the delivery slots three hours later.

And there it was, 11-1pm tomorrow. Someone had spent forever placing an order and I had out smarted them with my genious deployment of F5.

So some fat kids in Bedford wont be having any food this Christmas, but I'll have a full belly and thats what really maters at this time of year.

basically, bzb haxored tesco home delivery...

wish i'd thought of that...

had to go to tesco last night to get me shopping instead cos there were no delivery slots left, basically because people like bzb...

plus the heater was broken in the car, so that was fun driving to perth with ice on the inside of the windscreen...the cars thermometer was reading -10 c.

Had to ask Tesco about clubcard vouchers they wouldnt let me use so I emailed them and got this curious response...
Due to the recent adverse weather across the country, we have received a high level of emails.

There will be a delay in getting back to you but we promise we will be back in touch. However, if we receive duplicate emails it may prevent us from getting back to you as quickly as we'd hope.

Thank you.
Tesco Customer Service
What I cant quite work out is why more people would e-mail Tesco when the weather is bad.
What exactly are these people expecting Tesco to do about the weather?
