Found a very mouldy apple at the bottom of my usual hiking bag. Yuck.

Is this going to end like the scene in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, where you get a subscription to the Jelly Of The Month club?

BigOne just wrote a story about trying to convince woodcutters to stop chopping down trees, but they wouldn't, so she asked to see their manager and I am raising a monster.

I was away for a week or so, and when I returned my boiler was playing up, with lots of misfires and strange noises.. Had a couple of days of limited hot water and little heat. It managed to resolve itself yesterday and now (touch wood) seems to be functioning normally but I've booked a service nonetheless.

Getting angsty everytime I hear an unexpected creak however. Why don't these things have the courtesy to break down in summer, eh?

Will the council give you a free one as part of their green scheme?

£5 a day treat: Do we have a coffee in the morning at the new coffee shop, or load up the wood burner with fuel in the living room of an evening?

Wait no, burn the fiver (huddle round for warmth) then mash the ashes into some hot water and drink that; maybe with a splash of milk and sugar, to taste

Buy something for 5p and get the change in 20p pieces, put those coins in a sock and beat your neighbor to death with it. Assume their identity and use their house until eventually the utilities get cut off.

Buy coffee with blood stained change.

Anyone else find Amazon Subscribe and save a faff. I thought the point was you get stuff delivered on a set day.

Every time I order stuff it seem to be delivered early. Which is not normally an issue as I work form home, so random deliveries can happen.

This month I realised, I was away the weekend of my delivery, so I moved the date till today. Yet amazon, kept trying to deliver early. I even phoned them on Saturday morning, saying please don't deliver earlhy, which they agreed, then still delivered on Saturday. Then I get a message on Sunday, they wanted to deliver early again, I am still not in. I spent a lot of time won chat explaining don't deliver as I am not in etc.

They agreed to reschedule, which was good. Then still delivered part of the order anyway.. 8)

Today I get a a message one of the items now can't be delivered as it damaged in the van, as it was rescheduled FFS!!

:blown:

I got a £10 voucher and a free case of the drink I ordered so not too bad...

I used to have quite a few things on subscribe & save and had the same problem, although am rarely out so it wasn't an issue. However, they started putting the price up on the subscriptions without notifying me or replacing items with more expensive equivalents - felt more 'bait and switch' than 'subscribe and save'. I cancelled it all in the end. Thankfully more indie retailers do recurring deliveries now.

I think I will be looking to do the same. For the 5/10/15% saving, it is getting a faff.

I've had the prices move a lot , and then some of the stuff was not delivered for months because it was 'too warm' (i.e. it was chocolate and would melt - however that was still their excuse for not sending it last month either and they were quite happy for me to order the stuff directly without going via Subscribe and save !

I've not yet cancelled it yet because i do still get a reasonable discount on some stuff i regularly use - but its annoying - and yes they *always* deliver it days early or weeks late (last week i got a subscribe and save item that should have arrived the first week of November).

I frequently do the subscribe and save thing to order a product at a discount and then cancel the subscription after it arrives.
