    Grrr at my local branch!!!

    I need some tank silicon. I want it today because my oh is away for the weekend and I got some bits of pipe that I am going to silicon my tank gravel to, and make a couple of tunnels to go in my new tank.

    The garden centre does sell it, but it shuts at 5.30 and we won't get there in time so I called my mum to ask if she could nip in and get it, but she is being awkward and saying she is just going for a lawn mower and wasn't planning on going lots of places!

    So I tried calling pets at home to see if they have it, because they are open until 8. It isn't on the website but neither are a lot of things they sell. But every time I try to call them its engaged! :mad: Why do they not have more than one phone line?

    that is rubbish.

    I know our local one has it but I also know how one store will have a lot of things for fish and aquariums and a different store has not so much fish things and a lot more dog things for example.

    sorry I can't help more :(

    Been trying for 2 and a half hours.... SO I called the head office... Told them I was having a problem and that maybe someone left the phone off the hook. They took my name and number, so they could get my branch to call me back.

    Two minutes later they phoned me, apologising saying their was a fault on the line, but head office have a direct line or something. So thanked me for bringing it to their attention, and there was only one tube of tank silicone left so he has put it by for me :)
