No marks for Myer’s

Last Thursday my wife rang Myer’s department store and purchased an item from the wedding list for a wedding that is to take place next weekend. She was told that for a fee of $15 she could have the present gift-wrapped, with a card, and delivered with all the other presents on the list. She readily consented, and gave the woman to whom she spoke a message to go on the card.

The following day the groom had a phone call to say that there was a parcel (our parcel) awaiting collection at the relevant store. There was a ribbon around it but it wasn’t wrapped, and there was no card.

Quite a trifecta: not wrapped, not delivered, no card. Caveat emptor, apparently. We’ll stick with DJ’s.
