Tescos.com offer you a choice of two-hour delivery windows. You'd think this would be wide enough for them to hit, but no, it takes another hour for them to show. Still, it finally gets delivered, with a smile, a pun that knocks two doses of penicillin out of me, and a tale of Mill(?) Road being closed by Police swarming over an abandoned car. If humans were rational animals, they'd realise that the traffic in this town is a good sign that it's time to stop driving. Ah well, I have food now.
Also just got a spam inviting me to "be romantic... kiss in public". Umm... this classifies as romantic? I thought it was fairly standard behaviour... or am I just some unknowing, renegade romantic corrupting british public morals?
Oh, and my new coat turned up. 'Tis nice and warm :)

It's not the city, it's Tescos. They don't deliver on time here, either. On the other hand, they do often hand out other peoples' rejected substitutions as an apology for saying they'd be along at two and not arriving until six.

Have you tried Sainsburys? They're a bit more reliable, though less prone to give you free mushrooms or catfood.

OK, no comments on the catfood from the peanut gallery ;) (and if you don't know, don't ask ;)

Sounds like I got lucky with a 1-hour delay... I didn't know Sainsburys did deliveries; I'll have to try them next time - I don't tend to order for delivery if I'm able to get out myself.

Well, tescos are better than Sainsburys in Leicester - tescos seem to have more in stock, and they are on time, but on the downside, I have to buy my own catfood.

But what was the pun?

Since you asked...

... and I never claimed it was anything other than crap:

Passing me a crate of mineral water, he said: "careful, that's an 'eavy 'un".
