A (flash) light at the end of the tunnel
It's not all doom and gloom here at FT - My flashlight arrived today.
Ordered on Jan 23rd, recieved on July 16th.
Just throwing a little light-hearted banter out there. Have faith, this darkness will pass.
More sense than money.....

Out of interest, when did it actually ship?

The transit time is undoubtedly ridiculous, but it might add a bit of perspective to those currently flapping around like turkeys posting rude comments and accusations on the forum.

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

According to the tracking it left China 29th April. Arrived UK 5th July (although tracking website shows as reaching the US) and was delivered 16th July.
So FT took 3 months to despatch it and it travelled the world for a couple of months before having a rest for 12 days in the UK.
That info is not going to help FT much :(

Hello ppeeble,

Glad to hear that you have received the package finally. We apologize for the inconvenience caused this time. Singapore Post may ship the packages to Europe by sea.:( So it needs so long a time to deliver. We have added some small gifts for you in your new order. Hope you will like.
