  1. When the Tesco driver arrived, I went out to sign for the shopping and instructed him where to leave it (in an area by my side porch). He refused and informed me that he had to watch me take the shopping into my home. Under no circumstances would I find it acceptable to be "watched" as I carry my shopping into my home. I find that creepy to be honest. I explained that I was in the middle of an important call and that I wanted it leaving where I directed. He then drove off with our urgent shopping leaving us, disabled and housebound and the animals without food.
  2. Whirlpool oven repairs. Whirlpool oven repairs. Ongoing saga hopefully resolved tomorrow 24.6.17 Or a reading as war and peace will follow. This oven has been constantly repaired over the years, was supposed to have been replaced years ago but D+G lost my policy contract!! They had to start a new one ,so repairs carried on.

  3. I moved into new rented house, I called & gave the start meter readings, my name & emai & phone number to SP, I requested a contract & standing order mandate to be sent in the post for me to sign & return & asked for the cheapest online tariffs. 3 years & 5 months later I still have not received anything in my name from SP, what I have received are many letters (possibly bills?) addressed to someone else, all of which I returned to SP "not known at this address. I have called them 4 times speaking to different operators all promising to help & put me thr
  4. I enquired about joining BT in December. While I was still with TT they kept sending me 'don't leave, speak to our loyalty team to see what they can do' messages...so I did. 28 Dec - agreed a new deal 10 Jan - not heard anything so rang them. New deal hasn't been processed because I'd 'missed Jan's payment' (it's DD so it's their fault they didn't take it!) made me pay Jan's bill there on the phone. Couldn't talk about new deal because payment hasn't been processed 12 Jan - they rang me back & agreed new deal. Later that day I received confirmation e
  5. Private Land Fiasco Hello People, Thanks in advance for your help and your patience. This is my first thread ever, so please bear with me. On 14th January 2016 I was slapped with a parking charge notice by Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd for my car being on The Runway, Salisbury Village, Hatfield. I had gone to a small planning exhibition and I was in the community centre opposite for no more than 10 minutes. There was a small amount of parking inside the gates of the community centre but when I got there it was chaos, and so I noticed a space on the opp
  6. Hi, The other year I was continuously 'locked out' of my Argos/ Home Retail Group account. Unfortunately I had to have emergency spinal neurosurgery so had other more important things on my mind. During my recovery I wrote to them several times explaining the scenario...I was on sick pay with a protracted recovery time. Home Retail Group initially ignored me, sent me demands, lost 3 income/outgoings finance forms. Then attempted to charge me a whole years interest for a card that due to being locked out I was unable to access. So, to cut a long story short, the FOS found in my f
  7. Hi, I'm desperate for some help please with an issue with Vodafone. Summary of details: My son thought he's misplaced his phone on the 9th May whilst in Barcelona, by late Sunday he realised he'd either lost it or had it stolen He flew back to the UK late Sunday and was on the road back to his base to take part in a military exercise (we have retained the flight confirmation as evidence of his movements and have confirmation of the exercise) He asked his partner to report the loss and have the phone blocked which she did Sadly she had recently had a 3rd miscarriage wa
  8. Just wanted to get a clarification on the law. My next door neighbour called in at Tesco to fill up in the works van [ well known firm & van is sign written] . Filled up & went to pay, he had forgotten his wallet. Informed the lady behind the counter & immediately he said she barked " stand over there". Made him wait while she served everyone in the shop, then told him to produce some ID. He reminded her he had forgotten his wallet , she then produced a book & asked him for his details. Normally he would have signed , but her attit
  9. Hi I am looking help/advice regarding Sunmaster holiday company. I booked a holiday for my 18 year old son and five friends in January with the above company. The holiday was specifically booked for a named hotel in Magaluf; due to recommendations from others due to standards/ location etc arriving on 30th July to the 9th August.
