turn up in a sodding branded van, no a shitty white transit.

I feel more let down by this than the fact that they have totally screwed up the order.
grin

I don't know if you're being unreasonable or not, but your post made me laugh. grin

So now all your neighbours think you're buying groceries out of a van?

KippyVonKipperson Sat 02-Nov-13 12:28:04

That's awful, I hope you complained?

Isildur Sat 02-Nov-13 12:28:56

I hope you stood in the street yelling 'Darling, the WAITROSE delivery is here! What happened driver, DID YOUR WAITROSE VAN BREAK DOWN?'

at the top of your voice grin

dovaffanculo Sat 02-Nov-13 12:29:37

Ah God love you.wink

Did you not just stand at the gate waving your waitrose bags at imaginary passers by just so that the neighbours saw which shop the goods came from?

Thats what Hyacinth would do .

How rude! Next time you order from them demand a Waitrose van in the special requirements box!

SavoyCabbage Sat 02-Nov-13 12:31:56

No Jesus in The Cabbage Van for you!

Pmsl your poor food

Gosh...how can the neighbours all be impressed and jealous about a white van? Yanbu. You don't pay out extra and not have the neighbours know about it do you? Sheesh!

Gobbolinothewitchscat Italy Sat 02-Nov-13 12:36:14

I'm cringing for you.

Just to let you know - if you were my neighbour, I'd presume you were buying stolen groceries and the local shoplifters were paying you a visit

And nothing you ever said would make me think differently grin

Beccagain Sat 02-Nov-13 12:36:56

Really funny Isildur

But I thought Waitrose didn't charge for delivery as long as you spent over £50. If you spent less than £50 then you deserve to get the b list vehicle grin

ConfusedDotty England Sat 02-Nov-13 12:40:57

It could have been worse. It could have said Asda all over it smile

Or Iceland Confused grin

Beccagain Sat 02-Nov-13 12:57:52

Or Iceland Confused

Are you taking a sideways swipe against Icelands Sunshine. I won't hear a word against them since I discovered what a splendid bit of rough silver fox their CEO is!

GoofyIsACow Sat 02-Nov-13 12:59:59

I saw someone coming out of Morrisons yesterday with Waitrose bfl's... Made me grin

Not at all Becca. I shall look up the silver fox...

Eastwickwitch Sat 02-Nov-13 13:12:34

How odd.
When Fortnums come do they still deliver in the horse & carriage?
A quiet word to your local paper should do the trick just hide the Tesco bags that you use for recycling

Weeantwee Sat 02-Nov-13 13:13:59

I thought this when an Argos van rocked up to my new flat last week with my made to order Schrieber sofa. I bought it from Homebase, I could have handled a Homebase van but an Argos one! So ashamed sad

TheXxed Sat 02-Nov-13 13:19:09

Is this real? I am not troll hunting, I am just not sure if the op is being sarcastic and I am too thick/sleep deprived to understand

MindyWiller Sat 02-Nov-13 13:19:28

YANBU. i don't live anywhere near a waitrose but would be v. unimpressed by this behaviour.

make a show of publicly putting your recycling out in waitrose bags so that the neighbours are under no illusions grin

SoleSorceress Sat 02-Nov-13 13:44:39

Mrs Bouquet...

unlucky83 Sat 02-Nov-13 13:45:34

Wee Argos and Homebase are the same company! (And not part of Sainsburys anymore IIRC) -so you have an Argos sofa!!! The shame...grin

ConfusedDotty England Sat 02-Nov-13 13:46:13

I don't like my neighbours to know how well off we are, so I pay extra and insist on a Spar Ford Transit to van deliver my weekly Harrods order. wink
