Perhaps it was an order for 400 jars of Vaseline and doesn't want the neighbours to start talking!

It was 400 jars of Vaseline and a Radio Times.

Do people genuinely find this kind of thread funny?

I don't believe you're genuine, but just incase you are, I think you could do with seeing a doctor, you worry way too much about small things.

Okay I booked a slot between 12-1pm. It is not 13:20 so came online (to tesco website) to see if I'd accidently chose the wrong date or something. However got the shock to see it saying "status: delivered".

It's not arrived?! What do I do? I assume someone's signed for it if it's gone to the wrong house but I've not even seen a tesco delivery van go up this road today.

I'm panicking now. Who do I ring?

I think you should order from Asda next time if you have having trouble with Tesco all the time.

The first one of these was epic. This is like a crappy straight-to-DVD sequel.

I don't think Tesco accept bridges as a legitimate delivery address.

Your last made-up Tesco thread wasn't funny and this one isn't either.
Agree with this.

God help us all if the Radio Times is last weeks.

Perhaps the Delivery Driver hasnt been battling with the snow or dealing with moronic customers, perhaps he's been reading your Radio Times

Has anyone said "first world problems" yet? If not, I'd quite like to take it, thanks.

I once slept through doorbell calls and knocks when my 10AM delivery was made. In my defence, I was on a late-night shift (8PM - 6AM) to work on the Asia desk and so, I somehow nodded off on sofa.

I phoned Tesco to find out whether it would be possible to have it re-delivered later in the day. I was told in events like this, I would have to place another order for the next day. Fair enough.

About ten minutes later, I received a call that the driver was happy to drop it off on his way back to the local branch. And he did, bless him.

Just wanted to share a happy story.

Takae - you seem to labouring under the misapprehension that any of Tracy's tales are true and thought you'd throw in one of your own. Please edit your post and add several embellishments, a couple of outright lies and throw in a whimsical fantasy about a jar of half-eaten horse radish.

I'm curious as to how "literally freaking out" is different from "freaking out". OP, would you mind elaborating somewhat please, with some medical/emotional detail?

Thanks!
