Hurrah!

It’s not lost!

FedEx just called; basically at this second they know its in the uk…… just not where it is in the UK.

So that’s alright then.

  1. Hmmm.
    Reminds me of the time I sent my passport to the UK from Germany to get a visa. I sent it by a reliable German courier with tracking facility, blissfully unaware that as soon as it landed the other side of the Channel it was handed over to… Parcelforce. Who immediately lost it.
    I ended up on the phone to people in the warehouse while they looked under machines for it.
    Some time later they found it, but not in time to get the visa and have it sent back. Since I couldn’t leave Germany (no passport, doh!) I had to pay for flights and hotel for a colleague of mine to travel to London from Germany to fetch it for me.
    Useless tossers the lot of them.

  2. That’s actually worse than ‘It was stolen by chavs/run over by a lorry/sunk in Irish Sea’…

    At least if they had properly spannered it or lost it, then you’d have reasonable grounds for a claim…

      I don’t suppose they’ll admit its lostness for days. In the meantime I have a serious lack of web servers. However, my heroes at http://www.merula.net have come up with a spare box, innarack. It’s not very fast, but it does work, and is fettling it over the ether as I speak.

      And I’ve just put in a leasing application to buy a fuckoff replacement.

      However, I can well do without all this hassle – I’m exhausted.

        down the back of the sofa *again*?
        do they have any compensation for lost revenue etc? what’s that hollow laugher I hear? maybe your business insurance has something that covers the extra phone calls etc?
