This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

Clerical error?
Ordered a washing machine from electricshop.com which cost £500, delivery in 7 days.

A week later no washing machine. I chase them on it and am told it'll be another week.

That week goes by and I call again and am told it's coming direct from the manufacturer but they don't get the stock for another 2 weeks and then it'll take a week to deliver.

SO, I complain that 5 weeks is not the 1 week they advertised and I cannot wait that long. So I cancel the order, get a refund with the intention of buying elsewhere.

Next day I get a phone call, "Hello, it's whoever washing machine manufacturer here. When can we deliver your new washing machine?"

"Tomorrow please!".

They turn up, Mickey mouse signs for it, never been charged for it. Still going strong after 2 years. :-)
