Observations on a trip to the High Street [Nov. 18th, 2008|04:07 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
(pretend that it's just gone four in the afternoon when you read this)

  • They've filled in the big hole outside my house they've been working in for ages! Hooray, the noisy, starting work at 7am at the weekend buggers.

  • The street was full of schoolies. What time do schools kick out these days? It wasn't even half three yet.

  • The cash machine wasn't working AGAIN. Tsk.

  • The new Italian deli that's just opened is lovely. Because of the cash machine, I only had enough money for some salami (a third cheaper than the Tesco equivalent, and probably better) but I've got loads of cheese at the moment, so it's probably for the best.

  • Today's winner of the most disgusting man in the world: the man standing outside Ladbrokes retching and choking.

Observation on taking a phone call from a man from a coffee delivery company: no, this isn't The Lunchbox. Perhaps I should have ordered them 17kg of espresso.

A game I bought on the internet arrived this weekend. It was recorded delivery, but the postie just stuck it through the door without ringing. What should I do?

Tell the seller, so that he can complain.
Pretend it didn't turn up. I can get my £27 back, the seller can claim, and nobody loses. Except the postie who could get wrongly accused.
Go 'meh' - which is a real word and forget about it.

Finally, does anyone know of somewhere in London, other than the sweet shop on Greenwich market - that sells Vimto bonbons?

Do the second option, because the same thing happened to me once and I nearly did that, but never got round to it and I want to see if it would have worked!

Have you tried Cyber Candy? I thought it had closed down because it wasn't where it used to be but I accidentally found it the other day. Can't remember where though. That's incredibly useless information, isn't it?

I've never seen a Vimto bonbon in my life, but Hope and Greenwood might be worth a try.

I was questioning why I would be so heartless and pick number 2. Then I realised the postie was at fault for not doing his job properly. That'd teach him.

Call Postwatch or whatever it is called and complain. ISTR hearing that they do actually give the posties a kick up the arse if enough complaints are logged for this kind of stuff.

I think the 99p Stores sell Vimto bonbons. I'll have a look.

I was going to suggest Hope & Greenwood, but it appears that Vimto is not among their bonbon flavours. Still, probably worth a visit just cos it looks like such a cool place.

She won't even stay in the room with someone who breathes in deeply, for fear they are about to sneeze.
