    • Hi. I posted on the facebook group about Hermes queries re: a parcel that Hermes said delivered but i didnt receive. It was a private sale of a mobile phone from a seller in Wales to me in Edinburgh.   The seller has stopped contact with me now so I cant get any help from them. Hermes are saying it was delivered but it wasn't.   I have got all copies of emails to and from the seller and to and from Hermes. A photo of the actual parcel that the seller sent me prior to posting.   There also seems to be a some confusion on the Hermes tracking info about which day it was actually delivered but either way I was in my house both prior and after the delivery.   There was no photo but it stated the driver got a signature. Not true cos it was a covid thing not to get signatures. No calling card to say it was left somewhere else or in a safe place. It just simply wasn't delivered.   I've been told to ask for GPS info in order to trace the delivery or driver. I cant even talk to a human or get a valid address to write to.   I sent an email to the CEO guy and still no reply. I've not reported anything to the police but I'm getting all sorts of contrasting advice to do this and not do that etc that im totally lost now.   If you read this David, please get back to me please. Much appreciated.   This happened in June/july so hope im not too late to still do something about it. It's just took this long to only get to this stage.

    • Noted! Hopefully there won't have to be another time though!     I did respond to the email, I just basically said that he cannot deduct any costs incurred for collecting / picking up the vehicle and if it heads down the route of ADR which is a total new concept of me having any evolvement with, that he would have to pay a refund/the cost of the car and the cost associated with the collection of the vehicle.    Apon further checking the legislation because he gave me no cancellation rights prior to the contract starting he is indeed guilty of an offence, which is the likelihood of what trading standards are dealing with in regards to his local TS contacting him.     
    • hi,     Just asking for some experience or knowledge.     I purchased a puppy on the 30th of august. On numerous occasions I was in contact with breeder and asked if the puppy showed signs of entropion.    I was told no.   On the 26th of August puppy had first jabs. And apparently their vets said none of the litter showed sign of entropion.    On collection of puppy I noticed he was covered in green mucus. The pen had dog muck spread in there so assumed it was just from pups playing and maybe getting it in each others eyes (poor hygeine on breeders part)   Anyways,   Asked breeder to wipe pup and we left       With in 3 hours we realised that the puppy wasn't well. He physically couldn't open his eyes and when we attempted to clean them his eyeballs weren't visible.    We phoned an out of hour vets and contacted the breeders immediately.     The pup was taken to the vets and we were informed he had a severe eye infection which was a result to entropion.    The vet bill came to around 900 after tacking and meds etc. I asked the breeder to cover the costs. They said no because their vets said their was no issues.     The state on this puppy my vets think he's suffered from birth.     And most certainly not 5 minutes before I turned up.      I've filed a small claims for the cost of the vets and the cost of the puppy.      Where do you think ill stand?    What type of evidence will the judge want to see. Thanks

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi everyone,

 

Can you believe it, I have just started my final year at Uni. Filled with dread and excitement at the same time. Being grumpy with the children, laptop taking residence on the dining room table and stressing over getting a parking space in the mornings!

 

Anyway, I'm basing my Dissertation on some educational research I did last year on 'Reward Systems in Schools and Pupil Behaviour.' (I'm planning on becoming a Primary school teacher within a couple of years once I've been accepted and complete my PGCE).

 

I would love to hear views from anyone (might be opening a can of worms here) with any insights on reward systems in primary schools.

 

For example: do they motivate/demotivate children; are we creating an invisible band of children who behave; are schools become reliant on reward systems instead of identifying behavioural issues etc

 

Any comments, gratefully received, as always,

 

Tex xx

None except ... my disertation ended up being a nightmare. :D But only because I tied myself in knots, but then realized too late I had chosen the wrong thing to write about. Good luck with yours.

Oh no, what a mare! I don't believe I've still got 4 modules to do on top of the Dissertation! Anyway, deep breathing and gonna start as soon as I've got this week (my first week back) out of the way!

My university changed the course structure, right at the end of the year (within weeks of it finishing). Not a clue why, but they did. So, asides from choosing the wrong dissertation, it through everyone on the course in a panic. If I had it to do again, I wouldn't. But only because I should have chosen a much stronger course, perhaps social issues which I have learned over the years I am far more interested in than the course I did choose.

In hindsight, think I would have chosen the BA Ed degree rather than doing what I'm doing now, but at the time I wanted to be an Ed. Psych so chose Joint Honours degree doing Education Studies and Psychology. Anyway, after my first year I realised I actually wanted to be a teacher, so am majoring in Ed. Studies. On the down side, it means having to do another year on the PGCE to gain a Qualified Teacher Status.

 

Maz - good luck to your daughter :) x

Mine would perhaps more than likely have been Criminology if I had known about it at the time, in fact someone at Salford University was very keen for me to attend his course after contacting them but also tried to get me some employment with the university under my other degree, which is also BA. I have an insatiable thirst if you like to understand things.

Sounds brill! I'm hoping to do my Masters at some point... the PGCE now carries credits towards it so if I can do this whilst teaching I may just do that! Ultimately, I would like to have a Doctorate LOL!

 

Dr. Tex sounds good to me (obviously not my real name!)

Hello Texanbar!

 

Good to see you. If I have any thoughts on the mind of a child I will share it with you, as I feel I haven't moved on too much from my childhood, maybe it won't be too long before I can contribute. Lol!!
