Welcome on board, Lady Magpye, Rocco and Vanessa. You've all been added to the membership lists. smiley - sadfacesmiley - grrsmiley - hug

You certainly sound like an ideal recruit, Lady M. What an honour to have your boss call you a grumpy old woman - keep up the good work! smiley - winkeye We have something besides grumpiness in common - I too am a recovering journalist. Now the only deadlines I have to meet are my University coursework ones - and, happily, they don't come along every working day!

Less happily, though, I do have two coursework deadlines in the next two weeks. As the old song should have gone: smiley - musicalnoteWork! Huh! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again... smiley - musicalnotesmiley - sadface

smiley - laugh Oh yes, I am a grumpy woman. Not sure how I feel about being called old smiley - erm although I am developing a certain old-gittishness that I feel is to be treasured.

I have lots of little deadlines to make in a week of w*rk, so to quote DNA: I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

A number of things have made me grumpy over recent days, so here goes.

A company I'd ordered some things from sent me a letter saying that one of the items wasn't available *two weeks* after sending me an email saying the entire order had been despatched. I sent them an email to complain and got a lame excuse about the website and the warehouse being out of step. I could believe that 24 hours after the order was placed, but the email about the order being despatched was sent more than a week later.smiley - cross The only thing I can say in that company's favour is that when I asked if I could have a different size at the same price they said, "Fine, just call our helpline." Fingers crossed on that one. They even said I wouldn't have to pay postage. If it arrives, maybe I'll be a Cheerful smiley - dragon again.

Just over a week ago I bought a camera with a 'cash back' offer. I asked the saleswoman if there was some form I needed to fill in to get the cash back. She assured me that I only needed to bring the receipt back to any of that chain in 7-10 days. I went to one of their stores on Saturday and was told that I had to go to the camera company's website to get the cash back. By the time I visited the store, the cash back offer was over. My receipt shows that I bought the camera when the offer was on, so I'm hoping the company will give me the money. If not, I'm going back to that store to have words with the management over staff giving wrong information.smiley - steam

And now, for some reason, my left hand is aching. It started at the weekend with just the thumb affected, but it's spreading to my middle and ring fingers. It makes using the hand painful for a lot of things including using a walking stick or holding the dog lead when I take the dog for a walk. I need the stick when I'm walking the dog and the lead is essential as well. I can't pick things up with that hand at the moment, and typing's awkward, too. I think I'll stop now, before the pain gets too bad.smiley - bruisedsmiley - injured

Oh, almost forgot one. I have to inject myself on alternate days. When I got the injection ready last Thursday I found that the company that supplies the medication had sent the wrong needles. I managed to find a spare for that day's injection but hubby had to phone them on Friday, asking for the right ones to be sent to our home address. He stressed that I had an injection to do on Saturday. "No problem, they'll be sent out first class," he was told. Saturday came but the needles didn't. He wondered if they'd been sent to his office, but no. He phoned the company again and found that the urgency hadn't been flagged on my file. When I first started this medication there were no problems. Over the last few months, however, it's been one foul-up after another. If I could get my medication from somewhere else, I would.smiley - grr

Oh, and regarding the cash back on my camera, I tried the camera company's website. The form for the cash back has been removed as the offer is now over. So on Saturday I'll have to go back to the shop where I bought it and raise hell, something I could do without. smiley - crosssmiley - steamsmiley - grrsmiley - grrsmiley - grr

Regarding my previous grumps, I've had two good things happen today and one bad.

Good things: I've managed to find a form online for my camera cashback and I've got until 11th June to claim. The replacement item I ordered arrived this morning. It looks like the system won't allow them to do 'post free', so they gave me a discount that brings the price including postage to less than I paid before.

Bad thing: The replacement needles were supposed to arrive today. They didn't. Hubby is planning to fire a large ballistic missile at them tomorrow. I had a fresh delivery of medication on Monday, but I'm still short by 6 needles. If I hadn't had that delivery I'd have missed 3 injections so far. The company said they were sending the items by recorded delivery, so they'll probably blame the Post Office / Royal Mail. My opinion is that you don't trust an urgent delivery to the UK postal service.smiley - cross
