Things that p**s you off - post your rants

Local building supplies company!!! I needed 3 lengths of decking to repair a few rotten bits, the stuff that is down (previous owner) is not the standard stuff so god knows where he got it from? Searched the internet and managed to find a company up North that sold with a pic. Sent the pic to my local building supplier (email, remember this bit) and asked if they had any? The lady in the office looked at the pic and said "no sorry we haven't got that, we only sell one type". Chatting to my neighbour (odd job man), he told me the said building supplier has my decking in.

On the way to the shop I dropped by the building supplier, looked through the fence and there must have been at last a few hundred lengths of the stuff I need? Phoned up and spoke to the lady and she said "why didn't you say you wanted standard type?", "I sent you a pic", I replied, "I never read emails", she said!!!

Anyway 3 lengths are arriving today, and after a chat to the manager now with 20% discount.
