Supermarket Mixup

Here in the Vicarage we get our weekly groceries delivered usually by Tesco. Occasionally it will be Morrisons or Waitrose. This week, I decided to cancel our Tesco delivery in favour of an Ocado delivery. I have had an Ocado account for more than a year now but have never been able to get a slot so have never had an Ocado delivery before. I was even beginning to wonder if it was too good to be true that they deliver to our rural village. But then why allow me to have an account if that wasn’t the case?

Anyway, as I was filling my online basket on Tesco.com, I realised that they had run out of most of my usual items. Thanks to my sudden craving for doughnuts, I was also looking for a gluten and dairy free doughnut mix which I soon realised was only sold on Ocado. Without putting too much thought, I logged in to my account so imagine my delight when I realised that there was a slot available for this Friday! I went ahead to fill my Ocado basket and the delivery for Friday was confirmed.

Since I had an Ocado delivery in the bag, I decided to cancel my Tesco delivery.

On Tuesday morning, as I was coming out of the shower, I heard a noise. Strange as the Mhinisteir was out for a meeting and wasn’t expected back until after lunchtime. I wasn’t expecting any delivery either. I decided to check it out anyway in case there was an intruder in the house!

Imagine my horror when I saw the Tesco delivery van driving off!!!!!!! The groceries were neatly left on the doormat! Oh my goodness!!!!! I went to check my email to make sure that there was one confirming my cancellation but sadly there wasn’t one!

I was so looking forward to my Ocado delivery but now I won’t be needing another delivery this week. I decided to go to Ocado’s website and see if I could rearrange my delivery. Thankfully I was able to which means that I will have an Ocado delivery next week.

I just hope that it will be worth the wait!
