I am on wileyfox swift phone number 3 since september. The last one lasted 1 month and 4 days (the shop gave me a new one under their 'change your mind withn a month' scheme, as that was quicker than sending it off for repair. Someone asked me if the new new one is ok. I said ask me when it's been a month and FIVE days ::)

Stuck on southern rail trying to get back into London. What was supposed to be a half hour journey is now an hour and a half as the doors donít work and itís crawling between every station.  >:( ::)

They really are the most useless train company in the UK. I say let TFL take over all trains going in and out of London.

I now think SouthEastern are in close competition - wrong train advertised on the board at Blackheath and no announcements. This followed by a passenger telling me ďdonít look at the board for train destinations,itís always going in the opposite direction to what it says.Ē

The full moon was a few days ago but crikey there were a few loony drivers out there this evening.
The worst was a black cab (only it was pale blue) who rode right up my arse for ages. I was doing the limit in a 30 zone and he sat as close as he could. He weaved about trying to overtake and was a general nuisance. Eventually he did overtake me by coming up on my inside and driving on the fucking pavement! :o >:(

I have calmed down now, but on Thursday I had steam coming out of my ears. Instead of hearing the doorbell at the declared delivery time, I got a 'sorry you were out' email. I immediately called customer service to get them to send the delivery van back with our washing machine in it, but they insisted they had no way of contacting the van.

For taking a second day off work, we were offered a 10 euro voucher. Who the hell works for 10 euros a day in Western Europe?

My urgent email to the complaints department has still not been answered. The delivery the next day was perfectly by the book, and friendly, and they apologised for their colleagues, and the two week washing backlog will have been cleared by now, but bloody hell, I was tamping! I went and sat on the floor in the lobby the second day, to make sure they didn't pull the same trick two days in a row.

^ That happened to me the other night - I heard someone put something through the door at 9pm and turned out  it was a Ďyou were outí card. I tested the doorbell and it was fine. Very annoying.  Iím not sure why in my case they did it as it was just a light package, unless they were trying to pretend theyíd tried to deliver it earlier in the day when they were supposed to.

I've had that happen too but the worst is, ordered some trainers online and when I went to the Post Office collection centre thing to get it, they said it had been picked up already and signed for on 1st Dec - obviously I hadn't been to get it already and I had the little red card they give you with the details. No one else was aware of it so it looks like possibly a member of staff had taken them. They looked like Adidas Yeezys which retail for a tonne of money so I don't know if that had anything to do with it.

How can they say that, in this day and age?! What a joke.
And infuriating to find one of those 'you were out' cards when you make sure you are home all day.

  I had that a few weeks ago to. Iíve been sitting in all day waiting for a package from Amazon, then I got an email to say they couldnít deliver it because I was out. Very very annoying!

Why are so many people in the so called helping professions such exploitative wan*ers.  >:(
If I hear one more story about a terrible therapist I will despair.

^ Undoubtedly so. But with my small sample size of personal experience, people I know and things Iíve heard from other people the wan*er ratio seems to be at around 85%.
