Last week Friday I was let down by a supplier. We found out on the Thursday that we were not getting any goods and that they would all be delivered to us the following day. We arranged with the logistics company for delivery first thing in the morning and I came into the office early. When my staff arrived, we were told that the truck had only just arrived at the depot. They would offload and send us our goods by 10am. When the time came and we still did not have any stock I was not too perturbed. I knew that the traffic coming out of Cape Town was already heavily congested. But, when my staff returned from their deliveries to Cape Town I asked them to follow-up. We were then told that there had been an overflow in Johannesburg and our goods were not on the truck.

This makes not a dot of difference to my supplier. He gets to go on leave as the goods are out of his stores. But I had to come in to work and sit around waiting for the truck to arrive on Tuesday. Then unpack and check the goods before entering them into stock. And once that was done I could invoice out the stock that our customers were expecting last week. To top this, my driver had to come back from leave to do the deliveries. And whereas I have no issue with working through the December break, I do have issue with being let down.

  1. I think you have read my mind with these hasselback potatoes Tandy. I’ve been wanting to make them for a long time now but could not find a recipe online that I like perfectly. I will try yours! I need to find a side dish to bring to my mom’s. Thanks!

  2. Hasselback potatoes are a New Years tradition for us here. We also have them at other times as well. My new fav is making Hasselback sweet potatoes.
    By now I’m sure all is well for you at work. Me, I’d find a new supplier should one be available. Happy holidays

  3. I Love Hasselback potatoes and even though it will be around 35 C here on Christmas Day they will be cooked in duck fat and be pride of place on our table this year. Merry Christmas! 🎄
