For Lewis' birthday we bought him a slide for the garden because he loves playing on them in the park and looks for a one in the garden lol! Anyways we seen a nice sized one in Argos for him, so got that last wednesday. Went to put it up last night after Lewis had gone to bed so he can play on it as soon as he gets up and theres 2 parts missing from it!
Im not happy at all and this isnt the first time that this has happened with us and flippin Argos! It was too late to ring last night, so Im waiting until it hits 9 this morning and there getting me on the phone ranting and raving!
So poor Lewis has to keep looking at the slide in the dining room that he cant play on!

I've had loads of problems returning stuff to Argos. The most recent one being we bought a buggy board from them and upon receiving it the box was smashed as was the board. We took it straight back - hadn't even left the counter, and they queried why we were returning, saying it must've been our fault. I refuse to shop there now unless totally necessary. Hope you get it sorted and Lewis gets his chute xx

Argos can be bad, we bought a keyboard for the Wii when the laptop was away, it was crap, number lock kept coming on of its own accord and you couldn't turn it off and it was a US keyboard (no £ sign, " and @ swapped places etc etc) it would have been fine, but of course the Wii is UK compatible, so when you hit the US " key you got @! Peter took it back and explained why we were returning it (including the fact that it was a US keyboard) stupid woman asked him if he wanted another one! Ermmmmm NO!
Hope you got through eventually and gave them hell hun x
