The wrong fucking wine!!!

Ocado delivered the wrong wine today. I rang them 10 minutes later and they said that they would send the driver back within the hour to collect.
He didn't come back so I emailed them, they offered a 3 hour slot for collection which I wasn't happy with so offered 3 alternative 1 hour slots.
They have said its a 3 hour slot or fuck off basically.
Do I say ok? I feel really annoyed that they expect me to be ok with this but I'm being unreasonable aren't I?

Interested to know what kind of wine can be "wrong" grin. I've had wrong stuff delivered before from Tesco and just told them flatly I wasn't paying for it so refund my account and usually ended up keeping the product as it's too much hassle to return.

Was it Chardonnay? In which case, declare a War and nuke them from space.

Thankfully DH knows and once, when he bought it, was more horrified than I and got his coat on again before I could say anything. wine

Where can you not get wine delivered? Tesco delivers booze in Scotland...

Boak to chardonnay, that does define the wrong wine.

In Canada you can't even buy wine in the supermarket. You have to go to an offie. Bloody stupid rule.

I'm being unreasonable aren't I? It's their shitty attitude I hate.

Why the Chardonnay hate? Modern Chardonnay can be delicious if you spend a few quid.

After my sil went to a wine tasting session run by a sommelier friend of ours she tolerates Chardonnay as long as it is un-oaked....oops, or do I mean oaked?

confused blush

anyway! According to her, one of them is U and the other, the common one, definitely NON .

Me? Can't be arsed. Just fill me glass, will ya?

Note to self not to move to Canada.
Yes, if it's Chardonnay tell them to shove it up their arse, vile stuff.

I don't think you are being unreasonable.

Since it isn't what you ordered, are they offering to refund?

PeterGriffinsPenisBeaker Fri 29-Jan-16 15:42:47

😄 Mrs TP.

OP I'd have chased the van down the drive if he'd delivered the wrong wine. And twatted him over the head with it after he gave me MY wine back. How bloody rude! I take it they downgraded rather than upgraded the vintage in question? grin

Do you order from them regularly. You can normally just hand it back at the next delivery for a refund. You still have no wine now though. Meh.

Urgh to Chardonnay. The MIL drinks it and calls it "Chards" (misses point)

SquirrelledAway Fri 29-Jan-16 15:46:28

You've obviously not had Cloudy Bay Chardonnay.

kappadelta Fri 29-Jan-16 15:47:03

It's my first order a downgrade on the vintage.

Chewbecca Fri 29-Jan-16 15:51:09

It is the same wine but a different year?

ratspeaker Fri 29-Jan-16 15:54:41

Supermarkets will deliver wine, beer, spirits along with your grocery shop within licensing hours obviously. ( 10 am -10 pm in Scotland)
There are also companies who will deliver wine by the case, Virgin wine club, Tesco, Waitrose and so on.

OP, Id be annoyed at having to hang around when it was someone elses mistake but I suppose it's either wait or keep the wrong wine.
What did they send btw?

unoaked Chardonnay is lovely.

Would a Chardonnay hater turn down a white burgundy grand cru?.

Ginmakesitallok Fri 29-Jan-16 16:09:01

Chardonnay is fine.

Finola1step Fri 29-Jan-16 16:09:13

Blue Nun?

FatherReboolaConundrum Fri 29-Jan-16 16:12:30

Was it Merlot?

LollyScramble Fri 29-Jan-16 16:20:54

I have done maybe over 50 wine tastings in vineyards in my life: in France, South Africa, Western Australia, and New Zealand.

I LOVE CHARDONNAY AND I'M NOT AFRAID TO SAY IT

You are not being unreasonable.

They should just refund your money. Unless it is a case of wine.
