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

Dishwasher saga!!

It gets worse, apparently the engineer declared it beyond economical repair (its less than 28 days old)!!! So they are now issuing me with a text code and a phone number, I have to ring Currys and arrange a replacement, what's the chance of me getting another now before Christmas?

I'd be on the phone to Currys a bit bloody swift. They've sold you goods that are unfit for purpose. Surely The Sale of Goods Act demands that they replace it or refund your payment. Serves you right for dealing with that shower of shite anyway, I always use Euronics as their franchisees are usually local family run businesses with a far better level of service. If Currys piss you about use their complaints/customer service department, a few comments about namedropping on social media or in your local paper will usually stir outfits like them into action.

Just a brief comment about Currys Knowf***all team. Only this time in their defence. Keyboard going belly up 2 years 10 months into warranty of 3 years. Gave them a call on a Friday afternoon. Said they would have someone pick it up Monday in a 3 hour slot (Self isolating cos of Covid) They arrived on time and took it away. Got a call saying they would replace it with new. Would I like Black or White, Said Black as we all know Black Keyboards Matter. Chose the Black option. Will deliver it back on Monday in 3 hour slot he says. It arrived spot on time, brand new boxed wireless keyboard and Mouse (with batteries), Cannot complain this time

That is quite dreadful. Poor drills. Hope they make this a priority action - and consider a discount for the inconvenience caused.

dishwasher update, I received an email from currys saying they are going to collect my broken dishwasher and i will get a refund in 7 days!!! i rang up and asked why they are not replacing it? she apologised and said she will update the order as the entry was incorrect.

A few days later a new dishwasher arrived, they fitted it and took the old one away, brilliant.

7 days later i get £272 back in my account, I though i'd best check? Gave them another call (recoded it) and asked them why I had been refunded. They said as we have collected the old one, I asked if dishwasher serial number xxxxx was registered to me and under warranty and they confirmed it was.

just waiting for them to realise :)

Don't hold your breath, bunch of idiot company.
Cooker we had of them last Christmas, Which they refused to deliver. Has now started to show signs of crap build, what looked like stainless steel knobs, is some form of chrome plating, Which is coming off, wife has cut fingers and hand on sharp edges. I have put a not fit for purpose, H&S complaint to the manufacturer, waiting for them to contact me?

The "buy next Christmas now" company *Park*, are advertising on the box already for us mongs to start saving for it!
How the f*ck do they know what companies will still be in existence at the back end of 2021 that'll provide all the stuff you've paid 'em for?
Me and WolfPackLeader are intending NOT to be in the UK for the next Xmas clusterfuck.
Here's hoping.

Christ, you don't know where I live do you?

When I said 'pop round any time' I didn't actually mean it. Drink had been taken.

Anyway, I'll be away next Christmas.

And New Year.
Don't hide the front door key under the flower pot as he knows to look their first!
