Tesco Payment Update. Don’t put me through to India!

After my little outburst at Tesco last week about non-payment of an invoice nearly a year old I decided to step up the pace and phone head office and now wished I didn’t, It would have been far easier to phone the monkey house at Twycross Zoo and get them to explain pure maths. I made 7 phone calls and 7 times I was put through to India and 7 times I was cut off, each time I explained to the person on the end of the phone why I was calling and asked them not to put me through to India. On one occasion I did get to speak to someone in financial control who listen to my request and told me that he knew just the department who could help me, Yep you guessed it f@8king India.

OK so I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never get paid for this job and for the rest of my life I will hate Tesco, in fact I will go to bed at night 1 hour later and get up 1 hour earlier so I can hate them for 2 hours longer every day.

It’s now Monday 29th November and I’ve just finished a phone call from India, a very well spoken gentleman by the name of Ranjit has taken over my query and will be processing my payment but informs me this could take some time due to the fact I have not put a PO No on my invoice. Oh FFS why did you bother ringing me, it was a COD job NO P.O. RAISED. MUPPETS!!. Next stop Sainsbury’s who owe me £150.00 for the launch of Avatar on DVD back in April this year

PS.Philip Clarke takes over as Chief Executive of Tesco in March 2011, wonder if I will have been paid then. PLACE YOUR BETS

Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
