We get a lot of stories here about deliveries gone wrong, but I wanted to share my good experience with y’all.
Recently I decided to subscribe to the TCM wine club (wine drinking may have been involved). It sounded like a pretty good deal - 12 bottles of wine plus 3 special bottles for signing up for about $80.00. 15 bottles of wine for about $5.25 US each? Sure! I’ll give it a try. I like wine.
A couple of weeks ago I got a call from a UPS driver who told me he had accidentally dropped the box and broke one of the bottles. He was very nice and apologetic and sent in the damage report to the vendor. My repackaged box with the other 14 bottles was delivered the next day. I sent a polite email to the vendor and told them to expect the damage receipt and a request that when they send me a replacement bottle, that I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon. I received what appeared to be a form letter stating that I would be receiving a replacement case in the next 7-10 days. I thought to myself, that doesn’t seem right, I only need one bottle replaced, but figured it was just an autoreply and didn’t think much more about it.
Apparently right now in my front hall is another entire case of 15 bottles of wine. I will be contacting the vendor about this today to see if it is a mistake or if I will be charged for another case (not that big of a deal, really). Either way, more wine!
