If you don't want to read a blog post laden with expletives then you may want to switch off now. There are no pictures on this post because the words speak for themselves (and I'm a little distracted by the Corrie tram crash right now).
I hate Tesco.
I mean it too. What a complete shower of shite. Yes, yet again they have let me down and yet again they have LIED to me. I'm not sure if it's just the Coventry Tesco Extra at the Ricoh Arena that are pathological bullshitters or if it's all Tesco stores but if lying were an Olympic sport, they'd be right up there getting their gold medal.
It's too boring to go into the whole story but the long and short of it is they let me down tonight and didn't deliver. Oh, sorry, they did try to deliver but apparently I wasn't in. I'm not entirely sure where I was as I am pretty sure that I was at home during by 6pm-8pm delivery slot, in fact I know I was. And quite how the delivery driver managed to try to deliver to me between 6pm and 8pm and get back to the Coventry store before 7pm in the heavy traffic and fog tonight is beyond me. Perhaps Lewis Hamilton was delivering for Tesco tonight? Who knows. All I know is I am sitting here starving because Tesco are a bunch of incompetent idiots.
It's not the first time they've spun a yarn to me either. Oh no. Last year when they were late it was firstly because the store had a power failure, and secondly because the van broke down. But it didn't. The delivery driver told me it was all poppycock and in fact the manager in store had ballsed up and switched all their rotas around.
This is just the last in a long line of failures by Tesco. Numerous late deliveries (or they've delivered too early), deliveries that have never arrived, broken refrigerators on the van meaning they wouldn't hand over my chilled goods, some really weird substitutes which make you wonder just how stupid the person packing your bag is and items that are going out of date that day. I've even been delivered mouldy food, not to mention them packing singular items into carrier bags which is crazy.
Against my better judgement, I've agreed to let them redeliver my shopping tomorrow, mainly because I haven't got time to go out to the supermarket tomorrow but I swear if they are one minute late tomorrow I will not be able to contain my rage.
So let it be put in writing. From this point forward I will never use Tesco again.
Never ever. I shall be utilising the services of another supermarket for my next grocery shop so please leave me comments on who is better - Waitrose, Asda or Sainsburys? I suspect Waitrose will be the out and out winner.
The worst thing? It means my Glee Christmas CD never arrived.
Tesco. You and me are over. O-V-E-R.
love & kisses
