Being pleasant pays..

I ordered some curtains (shades, blinds w.h.y.) from a website. Delivery was supposed to be 5 days. 7 days later I got an email:

Dear R.W.Attwood ,

We have been unusually busy this last week coming up to the Christmas Period. Unfortunately it has set us a few days behind our normal lead times. We are working to clear the back log and get orders out to our customers as soon as possible. We apologise for the delay, we hope to have your order out to you soon.

Your order is very important to us and we sincerely apologise for the delay and causing you any inconvenience.

If it is an emergency to have your order dispatched please call us on 01953 889215 or email support@woodyattcurtains.com and we will do our best to ensure it is dispatched straight away.

Please contact us if you have any further queries.

Not convinced by the 'Busy because of Christmas' excuse, (Curtains, Christmas?) I replied:

Hello Stephen, thanks for the update. However, we are getting a little tired of the neighbours gathering outside the house and watching us walk around naked. I wouldn't mind but it's the laughing that gets to us. So I really would appreciate an early delivery.
Regards, Ron Attwood.

 

This came this morning:

Dear Ron 
 
Thank you for your email, it certainly made me smile this morning! I can confirm I have arranged to have your order upgraded to a next day delivery parcel and therefore this will be dispatched today. This will be coming via Royal Mail 24 hour and will be delivered to you tomorrow. I hope this helps resolve your situation and you are pleased with your order upon arrival 
 
Have a lovely day
 
Kind regards

Maybe she got tired of laughing too?  Gobble....gobble! 😉

I guess it's not a real good time of year to be a jive turkey. 😉  

Hope you're the eater and not the eaten. 😉

My wife, daughter and I saw our Canadian neighbor naked in his backyard, we had to go inside, we were in hysterics laughing, I know they heard us.  We became good friends with them but politely never mentioned what we saw, we only saw the posterior anyway, thank goodness.  My wife and I always had a saying: "Too much information".....  We would shorten that to TMI when such situations presented themselves to us.

It should be noted that we didn't, or don't, walk about the house naked. Or that the neighbours don't really gather outside the house and laugh.

Just so ya know. :smile:

That's why I live in an apartment now.  It's my space and my neighbors have their space, we do not fight, we live close together.  Homes are sold with the adage "Pride of Ownership".  But they separate people.  Into little silos, and neighbors start looking into business that is not their business.

I took it for what it meant---- not a reality but a liberal expression to get that response from that supplier, which was effective, as it got a result, Ron.

As I Canadian I can say that I have never walked around naked outside but will admit we have quite a few that do. He is probably from Wreck Beach or something 😄

Canada also has abolished the law so that girls can go topless anywhere due to equality, but I've never seen it

Thanks for the bright humor.  Things like this make Hangar Chat worth coming to even if it isn't flight related.
