Sometimes I can't believe my own stupidity and tonight was one of those times
Whenever I have a home delivery of groceries I immediately set up a new basket ready for the next delivery, usually a month hence. Then over the next three or four weeks I can see what I need and add or deduct from my basket. Usually the system works well and my £40 minimum basket is very carefully chosen consisting mainly of cleaning materials, heavy stuff and frozen food, all of which I am only too happy for someone else to carry for me.
I had such a basket set up for tonight and had kept amending it over the past four seeks since my last delivery. Unfortunately I had forgotten to re-check out the basket and I suddenly remembered at 23.50 last night. Last amendments are at 23.45 so tonight the man arrived with about ten pounds worth of groceries to which would be added £1 for delivery and £4 because my total shop was below the £40 limit. Not a very sensible way to shop.
But the delivery man was very sympathetic and said, he'd take the whole lot back "because he had been unable to deliver it" and I will get a full refund. How's that for a nice man?
And how's that for a dozy shopper?
