My stepson, who is lockdowning with us for the duration, is a fan of Brewdog. Every couple of weeks a huge box containing about 50 cans arrive, meaning that we are stuck for space in the 'cellar' under the stairs, so that my few bottles of Harviestoun Old Engine Oil are shoved to a little space at the back...

I am sometimes graciously allowed to taste one of his purchases, but haven't found anything to float my boat yet...

Noticed this as I was throwing it into the recycle bin this morning....

Amazon Customer Service - A bit long winded but -

I could have put this post in the 'Angry' thread, but as you will see, it does now belong in the 'Happy' thread. Late this morning, I went onto the Amazon website to order a sound bar after checking numerous reviews. I found the one I wanted and it stated that there was just one available from Amazon. The price was not cheap, but a decent amount for what I wanted. I went through the process - order page - ok, address page - ok, payment page - 'ang on a cotton pickin' minute - why has the price gone up by 11.40p?  :o. I cancelled everything, thinking I had made an error and having done that twice, got the same problem. So I used the 'Chat' facility, starting just before noon. After the nice lady, (well she appeared nice), tried to explain that the price was because it was not available from Amazon now and me saying that the website still stated that there was one available, sending her a screen shot, lots of 'chat', she asked me to order the item and see what happened. I did that and was charged the higher amount!  :o So I quoted the order number and delivery date to her. The upshot is that the lady has credited my account with enough to cover the difference, so I am happy again. All credit to the lady for sticking with it for 92 minutes  :goggleeyes: and not doing the usual customer service trick of giving out a few excuses. Incidentally, the soundbar is not showing now.  :)

Some can, but at 73 with underlying health issues I'm not even supposed to leave my property. Still I can get  bottles of Adnams from Tesco and have it delivered to my door so not all bad, I can crawl that far when I've had enough.

Sorry - but I fear the worst. The couple next door to me who have religiously obeyed lockdown so far packed up the car at 09.00 this morning and are obviously intent on some form of socialising.
I think the headlines over the next 2 days are not going to be pretty :worried:

You're probably right Nobby. There are far to many idiots about. Wouldn't be so bad if it was just them who reaped the "benefits" of their stupidity but unfortunately its others who will.

Look on the bright side. We've been open here for a month, and most people are behaving responsibly.  :beers:

I don't want to be the 'Doomsayer', especially not in the Happy Thread, but over the last couple of weeks Brits have shown they cannot be trusted to behave considerately. They may be a minority but it's quite a large minority.
Good weather? Let's stick 2 fingers up at distancing and go and wreck a beach or two
Won the divisional championship? Let's stick 2 fingers up at distancing and congregate outside Anfield stadium?
Fancy a knees up? Let's stick 2 fingers up at distancing, have a rave, and pelt police with missiles.
We're doomed, Mr. Mainwaring, we're doomed.

Drat - I have become a Doomsayer in the Happy Thread

Can we transport the trouble-makers to Australia in exchange for some responsible citizens?  Clearly something went hugely wrong first time around :D

Unfortunately I shan't be going to the pub anytime soon, I like to be able to wander in when I want, stand by the pumps (cask Ale) make a choice, lean on the bar and have a chat to the Landlord and some of the regulars then join my pals and until it is safe to do that I'll give it a miss. The club where I attempt to play golf has an extensive outside area where I shall be able to enjoy an apres round pint, we have been taking our own and with our camp chairs and the clubs permission sat outside. The Wednesday Wanderers have continued to meet in each others gardens with bottled beers as previously shown. This weeks treat was freshly cooked Poole cockles, super yummy!  :food: A pic of our meeting at Chez MinZapint

I agree with all of the above so the beer garden of the Longcroft Lion Inn will be open at 18:30 for up to 4 invited guests. I had 8 pints of Stonehenge Pigswill and another 8 pints of Danish Dynamite delivered yesterday. Happy days!
