    Angry Almost blew a gasket today

    so been off the road since 23rd dec with a broken alloy finally got the money together to but a new one and ordered it form Pentagon rochdale at 10am on wednesday morning. Told them when ordering it had to be here by friday as i need the car this evening, they said it wasnt a problem as they had one in stock at their Derby branch and it would be here friday morning no problem. Booked afternoon off work to get it sorted, phoned them at 12 to let them know i was on my way to collect it and suprise suprise it hasnt arrived
    I didnt even get an appology at first until i went absolutely ballistic at them, their reply was well we may be getting a delivery tommorow but if it doesnt come then, well it'll be Tuesday next week.
    Ive now had to insure and borrow my dads volvo for the wekend costing me even more money i dont have! Why the hell make promises that you ain't going to keep and more importantly not give a sh!te about when people complain. I'm the most placid bloke you could ever wish to meet a proper gentle giant but if my wheel is there tommorow all hells going to break loose
    Sorry for the long rant but needed to get it off my chest.

    I don't blame you. I would have asked one of them to drive over and get it!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Sounds about right for most of the dealers to be like that, couldn't you stick the spare on for the weekend ?

    Surely they could have loaned you a wheel from something on the forecourt? How unhelpful.
