Missing my duvet

Tuesday, December 5 2006

Location: somewhere in the world, maybe the vessel is in the Pacific or Indian Ocean or did it go the long way around Africa or did it take the shortcut of the Suez canal or the Panama canal.

The port of arrival is LA and that my friends is not a direct route from London. And it is about 4 week later then we expected. They will arrive in the middle of the holiday season so I am guess that we will see the boxes sometime in January.

One major character flaw with the Brit’s is that they are two-faced. The boxes was picked up mid October, got a call from the removal company that all the papers where in order, took the payment and they would be shipping the next week. It took over 3 weeks before getting on the vessel.

Why not just tell me? Nooo, it is better to pass that info on when they have to after being chased.

Of all thing things in the boxes, I miss my duvet the most – I am surprised myself.

    Oppps not all Brits have two faced? It might be possible that your shipping company people dont care about customer but its doesnt mean every one is same…:)Not defending any one but just sharing my opinion. Hope you duvet will arrive by the promised time….

    Well, most of the times when a Brit says he/she is going to do something, work wise or when buying a service, it doesn’t get done in time as they said/promised.

    Less so when it is between friends but it still happens.

    But is it 100%? Not really but I am annoyed so there you go.

    What are you doing for a duvet at the moment ? Wearing lots of t shirts ? =p

    An unzipped sleeping bag *sigh* that is just a bit too small for two people.

    I’ve really been enjoying the duvet … so warm and comfy. (sigh) I suppose I should send it on to its rightful owner. 😉

    I didn’t know what a duvet was and had to look it up. Guess I have to thank the Brit shippers for adding another word into my vocabulary 😉

    Hmm, maybe it was destined to happen… so that I could learn a new word.

  11. Lizze Says:

    Maybe. That is sertainly one way of looking at it.

    So what do you call a duvet if you don’t use that word?

    A pillow cover, pillowcase, bedsheet etc. 😛
