Ebay buyers!!

I sold a set of books to a buyer on the Isle of man. I offer free p&p on all books. I always strive to be super efficient on our delivery times and use UPS next day. As the I.O M is listed by UPS as "remote", it was going to take 2 days instead. (still good).
I messaged the buyer to say, that the books would be with him by end of day Fri.....................Checking the tracking, UPS delivered but no one there!! They are going to make a second attempt on Mon. It gets right up my nose, when buyers knowing when their goods are going to be delivered, and just cannot be bothered to make arrangements for receiving!! They then start whinging about late delivery blah blah blah! Rant over!

If you are at work all day, either arrange for someone i.e neighbour or someone to receive, or do as many do and have it sent to your place of work. simple. Failing that, don't buy anything online.

He'll be in the pub. The Isle of Man, described by a friend who lives there as 50,000 drunks clinging to a rock. And yes we were.

He now has the books, and is well pleased at the speediness of delivery, he never expected them so quick!

I've told him you called him a twart.

He said he's coming to kick your head in, once he's had a pint.
