Shitty Skint make a boo boo
  • City Sprint is not well.. im constantly being asked recently "whats going on with city sprint?" by clients that have used us for years ,(generally smaller clients who want to know why an EC1 to SW1 booked at 3:45pm was picked up after 6pm) also was asked why a time could not be given for a WC2 pickup going to WC2,in the middle of the day..the radio is terrible and even the riders cant get thru to our controllers on the phone,,all takes up a lot of time .. shouldnt really be this hard to comunicate should it ........and then couple that with a government contract that wasnt thought out properly.. could be a bloody disaster..... you get what you pay for i suppose........
  • I guess that's what happens when you get greedy. Chasing the big fish and dismissing the smaller contracts as less important. The smaller businesses will lose confidence and go elsewhere and when the big contracts prove too much, CS will be left with nothing but a bad rep.
  • well if something doesnt get sorted out ït doesnt bode well for the future-- the pushbike fleet holds the company together a lot of the dockets we do are booked as motorbikes-- but they just dont have enough riders to cover ït - - plus their rates are shite considx turn on the engine its about 40p in petrol--- unfortunatly its not a very professionaly run company any more-- we got very good controllers who are restricted by a terrible communication system and office decisions that appear to be made by people who dont appear to know an awful lot about being a courier
  • Seamus move 2 Creative better rates but you would have 2 put up with Sir Bill.
  • Seamus - grab a couple of clients and go indy.
  • The declining has been going on for some time.
  • I feel like shit.

    Two dodgy ribs, a fucked knee, a fucked wrist, and I cant remember how I did it cos I was so wasted.

    Still went to work, still did ok. And I'll be going in tomorrow. Me and Bada Bing have a good understanding of how Roadkill rolls, eh Mark? Confusing, selfish, entertaining, hard working, lazy, uncompromising, relentless, moaning, and the rest but he still puts up with me day in and (day off?) day out.

    All you pussies that think couriering is easy can suck my ring. Its hard. And its even harder when your body's broken but you all know that, right?

    The only guy I know who has it easy is an ex CS rider who does 5 jobs a day for £250 a week garra. But he found curcuit didnt suit his style. Fair play to him, but I need to earn more than that cos I dont squat / live in a free house / live with my parents / blah blah blah. I'd be bored off my tits doing 5 jobs a day.

    Big respect to all riders and honest people in the industry who will one day move forward, while everyone else will be left drowning in the filth they created. Remember - the meek will inherit the earth.
  • bravo! charlie...... dont let em grind ya down....
  • cheers Pike, have a vanillicon for old times sake:updown:

    I'm off the rest of the week on doctors orders to rest my ribs. I promise I'll never drink again or make bold statememnts on websites that I can never live up to in reality.

  • I heard CS lost the postroom at 189 Shaftesbury.Then I heard none of their riders could find it in the first place...
