Es lebe Amazon!

Geschreven door in: Sonstiges

Die gasten bij Amazon zijn ongelooflijk, zo’n goede service! Okey, ik heb mijn bestelling dan wel niet ontvangen, ondanks dat vind ik dat ze bij Amazon een ontzettend goede Customer Service hebben. Wat is er gebeurd? Ik schreef gisteren een mail, lees:

I contacted DHL, the tracking number is: xxx-xxxxx-xxx
DHL says: “Order is held up in Sao Paulo, Brazil due to wrong airport code label.”
Destination should be: Brussels, airport code label = “BRU”
Since 4 days the order is stuck in “GRU” which apparently is in Sao Paulo, Brazil – which is the wrong destination. On top of that: Brazilian Customs went on strike since a while now. DHL is not optimistic to get this order soon out of Brazil and I need those books urgently for my customer who needs it for a seminar due on the 2nd of June in Germany.
I realise this is not Amazon’s mistake but please find me a solution asap. I suggest to re-send me the whole order by a new one. I leave it up to Amazon to try recuperate the initial order which is now stuck in Brazil. Many thanks and with kind regards, Huug.

Nog geen uur later krijg ik een mail terug met een antwoord, ze plooien zich daar zowaar in twee (wat zeg ik: in vier) met excuses:
