Ordering Gas!

Postby vozzie » Sun, 01 Aug 2010 8:40 am

Well, my first attempt to order a gas bottle over the phone a few months back was a catastrophe .... by the time I had been handed to the third operator, I was a little frustrated. They couldn't understand my address. Finally, we seemed to come to a compromise and I met them at the security gate.

Understandably, I have been dreading the day when the gas would run out again. I have been making sure that I have been miserly with it's use ... heating food only when really, really necessary etc. However, yesterday, the inevitable hapopened. Don't worry dear, we can microwave our tea and coffee I said. That lasted one tasting. So, onto the phone I went. This time I only had to speak wth one person, who had the nouse to ask me my postcode. Things went uphill from there and the bottle arrived shortly thereafter.

I think I have finally cured my gasitis!

P.S. Why don't people ask you for your postcode more often? And why can't you just your postcode to a taxi driver?

Give your post code to a taxi driver? Whatever for. I've gotten into taxis and as for them to take me to the Swissôtel The Stamford and had them tell me they didn't know where it was! And this was, for a time, the tallest "Hotel" in the world at 70 stories. :???: Even after you give them the postal code, you will still have to tell them how to get there. :(

It is all pretty random and depends on the individual ppl or companies you dealing with. My experience with gas delivery companies were just opposite to yours: I was truly impressed how quickly and effectively it was always delivered. Same location with the cabs - almost always problems.
