Sheer frustration

I have been trying since yesterday to buy my sister's birthday present.  So far, neither major Australian department store website is willing to play ball.  One keeps crashing on checkout.  The other, won't let me even get that far. 

Her birthday is Friday.  And it's a big one.  I want to get her something she'd really like instead of another bunch of flowers.

So aggravating. Could you make a call to a store and talk to a person? Especially if you know exactly what you want ...

Sadly, Jan, the time difference between the UK and Australia makes that really difficult. I think it's 9 hours at the moment. I first tried to buy her present at lunchtime, obviously too late in the day for Australian websites.

In the end, I have just managed to make a purchase from the Myer website. Big Sis will get her favourite smellies by L'Occitane. (I even tried L'Occitane's Australian website but they wouldn't accept a foreign billng address.)

ARGH! How frustrating!! Those kinds of things will just really set you off somehow, won't they?

Glad you got something together. :)
