Bring On The Tractors

rwcrawford.co.uk – R W Crawford Agricultural Machinery Ltd.

What a bunch of muppets.

I registered rcrawford.co.uk many moons ago. I don`t use it for much, and ended up throwing a sum total of perhaps 6 photos onto the site. I`d originally intended to use it as a more serious site. But couldn`t be bothered in the end. Headstaggers is where it`s at.

Anyway, with alarming regularity I now receive e-mails for machine delivery, from TNT, with tracking numbers and all sorts of details I shouldn`t be seeing. I`ve contacted the “stores@” address, I`ve e-mailed the TNT address, and I`ve tried to contact someone through the rwcrawford.co.uk website. All without a single response.

I`ve been dutifully forwarding this stuff to the right domain now on and off for a few months, and it`s getting tiring. Not just because I`ve tried to rectify their mistake, but because some of this information might actually be important.

So, R W Crawford Agricultural Machinery Ltd.

Get. Your. Act. Together. You. Useless. Shower. Of. Arses.

Thanking you.

Me.

Well TNT. One way you could help me would be to get some bloody e-mail addresses right.

Now where`s my free TRACTOR? I`d love a Massey Ferguson. I`ve also nicked your site keywords so I`ll hopefully start seeing some of your search engine hits. Perhaps one of your customers will be able to get the message through to you. Idiots. I`ve already tried too hard to sort out your mistake.

Wow!
A new development!  Check out this badger which came through today.  Especially the teeny tiny bit at the end…

Dear TNT, and Dear R W Crawford Agri Machinery.

  1. There is no real disclosure above. Unless you wish to include your address. If that is the case, I`d recommend removing it from your website so as to avoid disclosing your own confidential information.
  2. I am not the intended recipient, and have told both parties on several occasions of this fact. However, this simple concept appears to be too complex to understand. Unfortunately I am unable to engage your thought processes. There may be books and or classes available through which to learn these advanced techniques.
  3. As soon as your electronic communication is addressed to me, it becomes my electronic communication. I am deliberately feeding it fatty foods.
  4. As soon as your message or attachment reaches me, it it at my discression what I do or do not with your communication. I tickled it, then splashed it with cold water. The next one will receive tepid water.
  5. Your e-mail “disclaimer” has no legal standing; you have implied a contract wot I have not accepted. If we are to look into implied contracts, I understand you`ve agreed to send me a free tractor. I would like it in red. Or green. Green.
  6. Technical incompetence on the part of both parties is no excuse for continuing to send this crap. I would suggest someone one both sides tries comparing two e-mail addresses and enters a competition of “spot the difference”.
  7. I may start charging you administration fees. I think £150 per e-mail might be appropriate, no? Or perhaps payment in tractors.

Dear stores@

Please could you acknowledge this e-mail?  Someone at your side is using "sales@" as your e-mail address instead of "sales@rwcrawford.co.uk".  Which means the e-mails are coming to me.

I don`t want you guys to be losing your e-mails, so if someone at your end could please update the details you`ve given to TNT, that would be great.  I`m not sure I can be the one to rock your world and forward these e-mails until the end of time.  I may want to take a small break.  In Tuscany.  Perhaps if I could receive this argi machinery and sell it on eBay I could make £1,000,000 and retire early.  That would be lovely.

Anyway - have a good weekend.

Cheers,
Richard - @

Thanks guys.

Is it a Bat Mobile?  Does it have flashing lights or a Magic Tree?

Cheers darling.

richard@

- perhaps they`ll eventually sort out the incorrect e-mail address....

Good afternoon.

As no-one has responded to my several e-mails on this issue, I will be implementing a block on rcrawford.co.uk that means any further e-mails to stores@ are not delivered.  I won`t be passing any more of these on to you.

If you decide you actually want to receive these e-mails let me know. Otherwise PLEASE contact TNT and give them the correct e-mail address. I`m not here to deliver your e-mails :)

All the best,
Richard Crawford
