The other day I orderd a doctor who cd off play.com it's one of theose 60's "missing" story ones. Anyway I open the package and whats in it, a cd of an x rated blue comedian that I've never heard of. So I've got someones cd and they've got my Dr Who one. It'd be funny if it wasn't such a pain in the arse to send them back.

So don't. It's not your problem. They've sent you something you haven't ordered, and haven't fulfilled the order you placed. If they want it back, let them come and collect it. And chase them to find out why they haven't shipped your order yet.

Turning up to the Battle Of The Bands meeting tonight, to find out that me, Ell and some of the radio crew were the only ones who turned up.

I'm co-chair and can cover 1 point on an 8 point agenda.

Although I did end up drinking with some other campus metallers!

:lol: That once happened to me with Amazon. I wonder who ordered those Motown collections and what they thought of my order of Electric Wizard and Accept CDs.

Haha, I've done that with a game before. Meant to get Game + Sequel ended up with two copies of the sequel...

Anyway Davros, it's a ballache to post back but just send it back in the packaging it came in. Play will refund your postage on returns too which is more than a lot of companies will do.

Another brainfart. This time I managd to leave my cashcard in the machine. A minute or so later I twigged and trotted back.
Gone.
Bugger.
I did the only thing I could do. I cancelled the card and spent the bus journey home praying for whoever took it to die of something nasty. Possibly involving anal bleeding.

Without meaning to sound cruel, how? It was so piss easy, I thought it all but impossible to fail.

I've made the mistake of thinking about things again, which has resulted in me being pissed off and not being able to do anything to solve what it is that is pissing me off. which ultimatly pisses me off even more.
I should really have learnt to just ignore deep thought by now, and live in my own little dream world in air head land like little girls should :rolleyes:

The machine may have also swallowed it, check the bank.

The Banks aren't usually allowed to give the cards back, or even tell you if it has been swallowed. I think they remove them at a fixed time, then send them back to the owners bank where they are destroyed and a replacement sent.

I did ask them this morning and it does seem likely that this is what happened. Apparently it swallows the card if it isn't reclaimed after a certain time.
So that's a much nicer vision than some chavette using my card to fund her cheap jewellery habit.
Thanks for that.
