Default I need to vent!

Mann some people have all the bad luck in the world.

So I organised for roses to be sent to my girlfriends work place yesterday and was told that delivery before 4 is guaranteed. But of course it didn't.

So then they offered me a refund for the extra I paid for delivery and promised to deliver it today.

Now I find out that my girlfriend of all days left work early and by the time they delivered it (which was cutting it so close at about 3:45pm) she had left already!

And so just then I had no choice but to call my girlfriend up to tell her to pick up the roses from her work place!

Bloody heck! It totally ruined the surprise for her

I know the feeling of waiting for food and then realising they hadn't made it. But you just don't know for sure, like if you tell them not to worry about it, they'll then say that its already been made, what do you do?!

yeah she was still happy about it, but I'm still peeved that she had to make the effort to go back and get it

One time I had organised to pick my wife up from work so I bought a huge thing of flowers and I laid them across the back seat. When I picked her up She had had a really bad day and just threw all her work stuff across the back seat... crushing the flowers. then to make matters worse I had to spend the rest of the night reassuring her because she felt bad

2/3 of the human population of the planet don't have access to clean water or a working toilet.
Put your little flowers in perspective.

Refuse to pay for it or just walk away. Although it depends on how hungry you may be
When I was in Sydney, I tool the missus to the revolving resturaunt. Took me an hour of waiting for my main after ordering. Lamb it was and to top it off the dish was supposed to be cooked rare. Why did it take so long? Luckily for them we managed to enjoy ourselves for the 3 hours we were there loking over the spectacular view and saw day/sunset/evening stages.

When I paid the bill the dude asked "How was the meal?" Well, "Meal was nice, shame it took so damn long to get to us." Won't be going there again.
