"I bought it myself after the Internet delivery failed to arrive"

I heard this twice today: both complaints concerned ingredients for the Christmas meal where people had to go out on Christmas Eve to get traditional ingredients ordered ten days or or more in advance which had failed to arrive. Whatever the cause of the non-delivery or delays beyond the “deadline” – who really trusts the Internet for that which is critical as opposed to “nice to have but not essential”. And what are the implications of the growing gulf between “the enthusiasts” and “ordinary human beings”.

Sorry to blog on Christmas Day but I had not expected such complaints over dinner.
