Well I've been let down...and lost a day of work to boot...thanks to a false promise from Sportsman Gun in Exeter.
I telephoned on 25 July to order two pairs of binoculars. Paid the money etc., and was told "They'll be with you on Tuesday".
Well they weren't and won't be. Parcelforce now say that it will be sometime on Wednesday as the things weren't actually sent off by Sportsman Gun until 28 Juky. That's Monday! By their usual Parcelforce 48.
I'm off to France on Thursday, these were intended as a gift to a friend there, and I am not going to now miss another day, Wednesday, off work waiting for these things having already lost a day relying on a false promise. When if they'd told me Wednesday I could have had that day of work given up instead.
So I've called Sportsman Gun and told them that there will be no one here to receive them, so they'd better go back, and sort out a refund. I wait and see!
But what really has caused my upset is false promises of a delivery day being made, losing a day of work, and yet these things were ordered and paid on 25 July yet not sent until 28 July.
And as they were sent by standard Parcelforce 48 then it's nobody's fault but Sportsman for over optimistic false promises.
I am not impressed!
