Things aren't so rosy for others

After a week where everyone has been so upbeat it was a bit of a shock when I phoned Allders today to arrange the delivery of a dining table I had ordered with them. Unfortunately they have gone into administration so it doesn't look likely that I'll get my furniture.

It won't be a problem for me, my card company will cover the loss but the poor lady on the phone had obviously been dealing with a lot of less than happy customers. I won't know what's happening until Wednesday apparently when they might be able to get it to me, otherwise I'll have to phone American Express to get them going on the refund.
