7. MACLEOD’S CLINICAL EXAMINATION (universalbooks09, 99.4% Positive Feedback)

This member has a question for you.

Dear deg3neration,

Dear Customer,
We have seen that you have left us a negative feedback reason being you were sold an international edition. We would like to tell you that following wordings were clearly mentioned in the item description:

Please read this carefully before buying.

* Brand new book in original shrink wrap.
* Comes with online access
* Printed in full colour on high qulaity glossy paper.
* International edition (not the cheap indian edition)
* On the top of the cover international edition and “not for sale in USA Canada etc. is written.
* Does not come with a DVD
* Word to word same contents, same cover, same edition, same author printed by the same publisher but overseas so its an International Edition.

Kindly let us know whether we are suppose to be blamed as we clearly stated in the item description what we were selling.

*guess what? i traced DHL and it was delivered from India – which explained why it took all of 3 weeks for me to finally receive it (that’s what got my beef in the first place). also they sent me erroneous replies when i inquired, stating that DHL had delivered when i was not at home. that clearly did not happen as the book was still languishing somewhere in Heathrow airport, after it’s delightful long-haul flight from India (i know because i checked with DHL).

8. [Swim-List] ACC Bar Night (Thomas, swim social secretary)

£7 from me (yay)  or £8 on the door (boo)
ALL you can drink. There is a 32 Kegs supply.
It’s going to be epic. End of.

The theme for fancy dress will be pirates.
This means: eye patches, swords, bandanas, stripy tops, ragged trousers etc. etc.


9. Training (Coach Spence, American football offensive coach )

Hi Ethan,

Just wanted to email you and say that I was really impressed with how you trained today. If you can keep this up you will get a lot of game time vs Kings next  Sunday.

Take Care
Coach Spencer

10. HTB Criminal Record Bureau forms (i am bad with forms)

Dear Ethan

I am afraid I am still emailing you about the CRB forms which I have not received back.

I have checked with HTB and they say that you still do have to complete the forms.  I sent you the new purple form on 22 July and have tried to contact you many times since then.

Please could you return the completed forms once they have been verified at the Post Office.  It should not take you long.  You are volunteering to work with children and it is absolutely essential that we have a cleared CRB for you for their protection.

I would really appreciate you calling me on 01825 746505 as soon as possible.  I had noted that you were in Singapore in September but I did send you the first pack on 20 April 2010 so really would like to get all this sorted as soon as possible.  7 months is quite a long time to be chasing a form!!

Many thanks.

realised after trawling through my inbox that the bulk of email i receive are from the medics union, American football and swimming. and yes, for the record, i have gone down to the Post Office.

    The one from your old teacher is so sweet!! You really should go visit her with your classmates when you’re back. She’ll be really happy.

    And poor Liz. She’s just doing her job. I have to agree with her that 7 months IS indeed a VERY long time to be filling a form!!!
