So, on 1st August I was promised a £50 cheque within 7 days as compensation for the 7 months of rigmarole that Argos has put us through. Here we are, on 9th August and surprise, surprise; NO CHEQUE. But it gets better. Not only is there no cheque, but after spending half an hour being pushed from pillar to post on yet another 0845 number, there is apparantly NO RECORD of any such compensation being issued to us. I swear to goodness, our phone bill will show more than £50 worth of phonecalls after all this shit, so a £50 compensation cheque which isn’t ever going to turn up is starting to feel like a massive kick in the pants.

Excuse me while I sit in a corner and silently weep with frustration.
