I've called it far worse things too, notably when it sent me a text at 3am* to tell me my card was about to expire.  Which I knew.  Because it's written on the front of the card.

* I was in Canada.  I told them I was going to Canada, and when I was going to be not in Canada any more.

Our copy of the Radio Times arrived today, when it usually arrives on Tuesdays.

Crap.
Two items received today, 2nd delivery in May.
Still no Graze box, no battery that vendor states was despatched on 27 April.
Goodness knows what else is missing.

Our first hand-delivered pizza leaflet since the lockdown began arrived just now.  Normally we'd average at least one clubbing/takeaway/taxi/mistake agent spam per day (there's a reason our paper recycling box lives by the front door).
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Our post has been completely normal. It's not even delivered by Kevin Costner. Our postie does work shorts even in the snow though.

Is there some rule that takeaway menus have to come from places some distance away. Sure, I can order a pizza from a place 6 miles away, but I don't think they'll actually want to deliver it.

We've had few pizza leaflets but Just Eat does reveal some takeaways that are open and which are delivering.

My Graze box arrived today, 9 days late.
Batteries I ordered two days ago have arrived from Scotland.

The battery I ordered three weeks ago has not arrived and I have a refund.

SNAFU...

You know, it's only just occured to me, I don't get takeaway menus here. After living in studentville of Canterbury where we got loads all the time, I should have noticed it before now.

I just use justeat.nl...

Package arrived yesterday from China, ordered 24th of April.

Like may other businesses at this time, us posties are doing our best, but for many reason's things are taking longer.
