It's been one of those days. The carpet men came to fit our new carpets. We very specifically told the shop we wanted the staircase, landing and two bedrooms done. I've just arrived home, and they've done the hall as well. Which we paid a load of money to have re-boarded and varnished last year. So when they take the carpet and grippers up on Friday, we'll doubtless be left with a load of nail holes where they hammered the grippers down. And they left all their offcuts of carpet on the front garden and didn't take it away with them when they left.

Then I noticed the 1/2 size guitar I ordered for my daughter for her birthday was also delivered today. Except it's not a guitar on closer inspection, they've delivered a fucking banjo !

And they forgot to pay my missus her payrise for the second month running.

EDIT : And then I forgot to change the category for this post to Rants too.

WTF! How did they have enough carpet for the hall if they/you didn't measure for it?!

Did you specifically tell them not to do the hall !?! I would get a quote for having the holes etc refilled, and then send the invoice onto the carpet people. ^_^

We did specifically say in the shop that we just wanted the stairs and rooms done. Unfortunately we relied on someone else on the day to reiterate this and they obviously didn't go a good enough job. We didn't notice on the invoice it was there, largely because we hadn't asked for it and weren't expecting it, and to a lesser point it wasn't individually itemised. It was put in the middle of an extremely long bit of text as 'HSL', which we now know stands for Hall/Stairs/Landing. So, partly our fault for not noticing, but if the guy in the shop had done his job properly we wouldn't have had to even look.

You guys actually drink that? I thought it was purely made so you could tell tourists "it's a traditional Hungarian drink. Try it!" and then laugh at them when they taste it.
