This, at least.
As a customer, you expect the retailer to not only provide a product for you to buy, but to have it ready at the promised time - especially if they add an extra 24 hours to the wait period.
It's bad enough that the State forces us into making two trips to the shop to make a purchase. But forcing you to make a 3rd trip is simply not acceptable. Take your hourly wage rate, multiply it by the time it takes you to drive to the shop and then home. That's the amount of your time & money they wasted. That doesn't include the cost of fuel either.
