Asda shopping is the same. You get a text before the slot saying “your driver is on the way, click the link for more details”

Literally no more detail about when it will arrive, just what you ordered.

I had one of these messages last week, "your driver is on the way". This was at mid-day.

My order was booked for delivery between 8 and 10pm.

Must have been coming from Asda Inverness.

I’ve had that too, I thought shit it’s coming early… it didn’t. It just came at the booked time.

I had a tesco delivery cancelled 90 mins before it was due. Driver shortage apparently. Great. However I was relieved when they confirmed that I wasn't going to be charged. 

Gee. Thanks. 

Got on to amazon fresh and got the lot more or less delivered 2 hours after placing the order.

I newer use home delivery if I can help it. I'll just pick it up at the closest drop-off when all delivery cretins are done messing about. If there is one working thing over here, it's that. Especially the new locked boxes that they use (Budbee or Instabox). Almost flawless.

Ocado are so on it they even tell you the name of the van your delivery is coming in 

if anything they are annoying as they over communicate … Daisy has just received a bolt to the back of the head and once we’ve hacked her up a bit your steak will be delivered by Jon a Leo who likes classical music , in a van called Rosie between 11:48 and 11:49 

And then a "You're next" and then a "We're outside" message.

I think it's been mentioned before, but 'Mrs brown's boys'. I'd rather gouge a testicle out, than watch that horrific program. How anyone finds it funny is well beyond me!

Well,to be honest,I really enjoyed it when it stopped.

That reminds me of the time at work when one of my colleagues was introducing the team to some newcomer. He got to this one guy and said "This is Pete. He's a nice feller until you get to know him". 

It was true, too.

The problem with keeping fit and active when your younger all the way to your late 30's, going the gym, playing football, staying heathy etc. Is when you get to 40 something and stop for a couple of years, your body starts to feel like a 80 year olds with the aches and pains.  I generally cycle now, but been so busy with work, not even had time to do that and I have to say I feel worse than when I was grafting in the gym.

Did this arrive in the time slot predicted ? 

Yes, it even arrived in time for me to take the packaging to the tip and have my tea cooked at a sensible time

We order through Instacart, who work with most stores.  The shoppers usually communicate with you via text while they're in the store shopping.  Sometimes you get a particularly thick shopper who's constantly texting things like, "They don't have such and such item in this store."  Some Saturdays my wife's phone is pinging every minute with text alerts.

Funny story:   This weekend my wife had placed the order and then realized there was a key item for that night's dinner that she'd forgotten.   She had to head to the store herself to get that.   She was literally in the store at the same time as the person shopping for her.

These mega profitable national or international chains begging me to donate to their chosen charity on their behalf.

I don't begrudge Tesco having a collection area for food banks, but a big pop up prompting me to donate my change to their charity in the self checkouts is taking the piss. You had £825m profit last year, Tesco, how about you **** donate to them, I'm just here for some bog roll.

The other problem with that in the US at least is that the corporation gets to take the tax deduction on the donations their customers made.   I don't contribute to those.  I'd rather give to my charities of choice and get the tax deduction.

Screwfix (Kingfisher group) are the same, they just posted record profits £775m, up 100m on last year. But want my 17p change from my order.

I was on auto pilot ready to finish my order, as I suspect they;re counting on many of their customers being. I pulled back just in time, bu I would absolutely set aside a good portion of my day to demand to speak to the manager to get my coppers refunded if I'd clicked the wrong button. I'm not a stingy person, I happily donate monthly to a local homeless charity (Emmanual House, in Nottingham), as well as Acorns, but I wouldn't donate the steam off my piss to Tesco or their partnered charity.
