Chronopost are doing my head in!
The pace of life here is slow, but it almost comes to a stop when you are waiting for a delivery from Chronopost. We waited in all day Saturday because our parcel ordered from Amazon France was supposed to be delivered between 9.30 and 18.00, guess what ? It didn't turn up. Fast forward to Tuesday (Monday here was the last of three bank holidays this month) and we check online to find that they "tried to deliver but there was no reply" at 9.30 on Saturday morning. Rubbish! Poppycock! and several other words that are considerably stronger!!! We were here at 9.30 Saturday morning and no-one even attempted to deliver. This is not the first time we have had this problem and should we be stupid enough to use a company that uses Chronopost, it won't be the last time either. The drivers for that company are bone-idle and if they can't find the address, they return the parcel with "no reply" to the depot, who then attempt to send it out again. They were supposed to deliver today (Wednesday) between 09.30 and 13.30 Nothing. Nada. Rien... Bet you anything the system will show that they tried to deliver and didn't get a reply. So I have issued a big note to self....AVOID CHRONOPOST LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!!
