that DHL are a right pain in the arse; the local depot's phones are all apparently out of order, and their "national enquiries" number's robotic phone menu is designed to keep you away from a human; once you finally get through to "general enquiries", they give you the Two Magic Lies you have to give the robot to get through to the 'right' human, who can then tell you that the robot lied to you about where the package is.

At some point I'll get off the phone for long enough to go collect it..

Oh, bloody hell. Slap 'em.

I hope you think your presents are worth it!

Oh yes :)

Turns out the reasons no-one could answer the phone was that 4 of the 5 backroom staff had pulled a sickie, leaving only 2 depot staff in the place. My response of "it's not that sunny!" was received with a certain amount of wry amusement.

Pretend your delivery code is alphanumeric but doesn't start with 'JD' or some such.
