    What did Argos say when you told them? Or are you hoping they’ll reply here in the comments?

    2. whats the reason for the “Shocking customer service”?

    In my experience Argos are absolutely spot on when it comes to help out pre and post sale.

    Anyone what?
    Do you want us to swing round his gaff to collect it and bring it back for him? Because, gir’frien’, that is not gonna happen.

      Heh. Kidnap tape. I’m stealing that one, as I don’t feel I give off enough of a creepy vibe IRL.

            Duct tape is the best invention. Ever. Dependant solely on the aesthetic level needed. I’ll fix it, you may not just like the end result.

            Was that through marriage, or is it an hereditary matriarchal role? Either way, go you, your majesty.
            I just have loads of kidnap tape I’m not allowed to use. (see above re. aesthetics)

      As you say these things are usually self contained, no extra parts required (sandbags to keep the thing from flying off in the wind recommended though).
      Awkward to setup unless you have two or ideally four people.

      Person will be red in the face when they figure it out.

      Didn’t you spend your days under a gazebo as a child, fanned by your ayah?

        1. Papi

          I see that. At least let her disassemble it prior to the bottom holing, Argos, you bully.

    Oh spare me the indignation

    Anything that travels in those loose cardboard boxes is regularly missing a bag of screws or sum’ting replaceable out’ve the shed
    In this case
    And let’s be honest
    It’s a pretty shabby gazebo
    Like tis no teak all weather 4 bi 3 with the midgie nets from Avoca
    All you’re probably missing are a few tent pegs an’ a bitta string

    Welcome to Celtic Tiger 2 point oh everyone
    This time round it won’t be the holiday apt in Croatia
    Or the fancy coffee machine especially designed to be integrated inta the kitchen island
    Or the Breakfast Roll reports
