Rae renewed the Age subscription yesterday, it was supposed to expire on November 12. I get to read it most days while I have breakfast and we would buy it Thursday and the Weekends anyway so it’s not much more to have it delivered 7 days a week. With taking Bert to and from school next year I may loose my reading time so we’ll revaluate then.
But that’s not what I wanted to write about.
When Rae renewed the gentleman on the phone said it would take 10 days for the renewal to take effect. 10 days! How on earth can it take that long? Credit card payment is instant (or should be!). Do they employ someone to walk from the call centre to my local newsagent to let them know to keep on delivering? Do they only release the pigeons once every 10 days? I can not for the life of my conceive how it could take 10 days for The Age to notify my newsagent. That’s just ridiculous.
