    I hope they won't be delivered tomorrow because you'll never be happy as they'll never arrive.

    Have they arrived yet?

    you should set up a thread complaining about the poor service not having got better even after you set up the poor service complaint threaf.

    No. Tomorrow.

    You need to get on to them. Mine were delivered before they said they were dispatched.
    However I’m only using the rear one at the moment. You are welcome to nip up to East Yorkshire to borrow the front one if yours don’t arrive.
    That’s excellent. I’ll be there in 5 minutes. Nice one.
    Have you been round. If so I’m sorry I missed you I took the grandson swimming and then to the garden centre for lunch. There’s a big map of the coast to coast cycle route on the wall. I think there was a picture of someone riding 60mm primes on it, they wouldn’t be your wheels by any chance.
    No they’re not mine. I saw the map though, had a rifle through the house, nicked your silverware. Hope you don’t mind..
    Silverware? I think you were in the wrong house. Also I don’t think you would have got past the attack mogs

    They hide in the ceiling?
    Crafty.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    He wouldn’t send one, muttered something about getting a grip and not wasting his time on such nonsense.

    It’s almost as if I should just be grateful that the company in question immediately agreed to change my order, started working on it within 5 minutes and had FedEx booked for a collection within half an hour of my conversation with the support person. Not only that, they’ve fitted tyres and I’m still getting the wheels within 48 hours. Ridiculous.

    Ah, I see the problem. Struggling to get tubeless to seal. Give it another couple of days and you'll get a cancellation email saying they don't really have any stock.

    No that’s next door. Did you not notice Darren drilling holes in his kitchen ceiling for the new lights.

    I'm not surprised they didn't send them same day with that attitude. Unbeleivable entitled, ungrateful git. Are you a boomer, by any chance?

    It is tomorrow in Australia already. Surely they should have been delivered by now.

    It's never tomorrow: tomorrow is always tomorrow. And it belongs to me.

    I’m not a boomer, no. Generation X, me. Shirl, you should say what you think. Feel the love, buddy. 🫀

    I just said you’d said it was OK and he waved me straight in.

    So hang on, if I order next day delivery from Amazon prime, it gets sent to you?

    Where the f*ck are they. If they are not here by tomorrow I’m buying some Hunts.

    Why would you want some stupid Hunts? ;)
    It has gone 10. Amazon deliver up to then so have they arrived?
    I'm telling you - messing with valves - cancellation imminent.
    Could have ordered some FleaBay Chinese specials from 'UK stock' and received them by now - with a Chinese export sticker on the box funnily enough.

    En route with fedex I believe. I think it must be their fault. Hunt never gave me this many problems…

    If they're taking this long to arrive they're not going to be fast wheels.

    you would have got your Hunts by now, marvelled at what sheer, utter bargains they were - the cost to parts ratio would have literally made you spaff yourself - and gone to the pub to celebrate your wonderful purchase.

    i'm going to cancel the order for you.

    Have you complained on twitter yet?

    That’s a good idea! No, I haven’t. I could threaten to use my social media presence to stop people buying from them. That’d have them quaking in their boots - I actually have about 10 real people following me on Twitter, one of whom rides a bike.

    Genius! I’m off to do that now.

    Don't forget to use capital letters

    It’s just as well they haven’t arrived, it’s too windy round here today to ride 60’s.
