That is now looking as though it won't be the case, sad!
Ian & Paul,

I have been very pis*ed off because of the situation, but tonight's banter, has brought a smile to my face, (and I'm known for being the most miserable git on earth), thanks to you all for cheering me up, and playing the guessing game !

Time for bed, going to be a long day tomorrow !

Michael.

Hi Michael, I like how you write. Are you a native English speaker?

Anyway, if its the company I've 'guessed' it is, then I'm kinda sad.

Matt,

You lot are determined to keep me from my bed, yes I am a native English speaker, a strange comment, I am tired, maybe I missed something ?

Anyway, that is two of you that are sad, can I ask is that sad for them or me, or the situation ?

Michael.

Figure of speech Michael

I'm sure they'll come good, I'd imagine most of their business comes via the forums, and if not the UK forum is especially good at Google optimisation.

Coz if it is THAT company then some of us have met them, chatted to them and so on. Even called them our friends. That said, last time should have been... umm.. the last time!!

Your stumped ! I'm stumped and I'm the one in the know.

Matt, not sure if we are talking about the same company, didn't realise some of you had gone across the pond, but I am relatively new on here so cannot know all the history.

Matt's referring to another now ex sponsor (*I think*) who suffered quite badly from some bad exposure after some complaints, but not on the same level as the sponsor you are having a bad time with.

A sponsor who has not learnt from experience/past mistakes, and now shows they clearly have no regard for GB buyers!

It's sad for you because of the inconvenience and potential loss, but it's sad also because it undermines members confidence in all sponsors to a degree, especially those that are on a different continent.

Thankfully I went another route and sponsor earlier on, and as I have an aversion to forklifts & inadequate packaging that choice was vindicated, and things for me turned out differently, but it was a f*cker for those people in the GB

I'm sorry my company let you down. We sent you a midget woman
for your stag do when you actually ordered a midget, amputee man.

I apologize for the way the receptionist spoke to you when you called
to express Your dissatisfaction with our sexual services.

As a good will gesture I will send you 6 midget-men with extra large strap on's for two weeks to make up for the pain I have caused you.


Please continue to use my company.

I ordered the same item a few weeks before Michael and mine turned up luckily with no damage. I feel terrible because it seems to me that he only bought them because I had a decent experience. TBH I regret buying them as I could have got something similar here albeit not the same quality, but for much less.

One thing I will say is that their communication is terrible as I had to phone them half a dozen times as they seem to forget to respond to emails or PMs on here.

Sorry Will. But I had to use the rabbit once you had finished (Didn't take long) to get myself off.
