    Because Scan is literally, and I mean this in the most loving way possible, incapable of counting down from the number of boxes they get from their suppliers by the number of orders they receive. Like, completely incapable. They're lovely, but counting backwards from a set number? Nah.

    I mean, it's no secret. They just can't. Never have. It's always a surprise, too. Every time. They just can't count.

    Lovely people, hard-working I'm sure, but stock control is an art long outside their grasp.

    'stock issues' = scan, unless proven otherwise... given how notoriously bad their stock 'system' is

    I meant as in what experience he had that caused him to come to that conclusion

    Well then. I was never aware this was a thing.

    Probably for the very same reason I was able to know who you'd bought the bundle from the minute you said it came without the CPU: it shouldn't be a thing.

    Oh he does. He screwed me over on my Dubai move, so I screwed him back harder. So i'm working out my notice period visiting "VIP" clients.

    Maybe while you're out & about, you could run your new Barbour in a bit... Drag it behind the car a short way then round a field. :grin:
    Shame those cows in MK are concrete...

    If it could possibly be any worse than usual it will be.

    What with being relegated for the 2nd time in 2 seasons I think the whole town is a bit down, moreso than usual, at the prospect of league 1 football.

    Yep, they have the worst stock control system of any e-tailer I've encountered. So much so that I will not use them for any time-critical order as I simply cannot trust them to actually provide what they say they have in stock.

    Agreed to payoff the balance on my flat (in writing) and then the day that push came to shove, they refused. So I called my director a "Cheap Essex Prick" (which he is... loafers and no socks? come on bro.) , so he fired me over the phone, so i threatened him with unfair dismissal. So, I got a pay off (which is more than the ****ing Dubai move would have been) and am working my notice due to non-compete/disclosure.

    Super-fun-times.

    Holy crapballs what the hell was their problem?

    Well there'll be new possibilities and places to go mate. I've had things happen that were crappy at the time but if they hadn't happened then I wouldn't have ended up with other good things coming along. If you know what I mean.

    Still. That's bang out of order. Can't be doing with petty power trips and small minded twatishness.
