im so annoyed that the holiday has gone to waste!!!!

im so annoyed,a few weeks ago i offered a holiday free (as we had won it but due to circumstances with my sis couldnt go)

so i offered it on here i changed names etc to the person who wanted it,then a week later my sis got a letter with the names changed but the address was still my sisters

so i phoned the person who wanted the hol and gave them all details etc and told them seen as the holiday was in their name they would have to contact pontins and change the address i even gave them the phone number,i asked them to let me know when they had sorted it but i never heard anything so i presumed they had sorted it

then friday my sis phoned me saying she had recieved another letter (but in the other peoples name) it was a welcome letter for the arrival at pontins advising of arrival times etc

so i have pmed the person twice and no reply to let me know either way

so the holiday is in 10 days time and is now probably going to go to waste ARRRGHH

because they have left the address as ours
because i have sent them pms with no reply asking if they still wanted the holiday or not
because we have the letter they need to take with them
#7
Just give the letter to somebody else, somebody that will appreciate it.

Yes, but the it may simply be a mistake on behalf of the holiday company. Or, they have sent it to both parties.

Also, edjaned can't you just phone them again?

offer it to someone else on here or your friends
#12
that is a real shame, some person out there could have genuinely wanted to take you up on that holiday and instead someone else is possibly going to let it go to waste, terrible!

Mike..
#13
well i'd PM that person and say look i am going to wait till x day x time and if i dont hear from you sorry ... justa thot.

#16

#17

Would that be possible? Surely the holiday belongs to them?
What if the people you offer it to second get there, and are turned away?

Phone the hoilday compay and ask them to contact the new people
#19
tbh saint i just dont know!
im just hoping he will reply now,im just going on what advice i have been given

but why would he not reply if he is online?
#20
let's all PM him/her LOL.
just kidding.
#21
He might not see your PM.... popup blocker maybe?
#22
mmmm maybe
but he has seen all other correspondence when we were discussing holiday
#23
Is he activly posting on another thread? if so pop in and announce you've PM'd him.
Just 'cos he shows as online, doesn't mean he's there... I never log off..

Exactly, whenever I open up internet explorer, HUKD and My e-mail account opens automatically.
#25

but when i check his status sometimes he is online others he is offline

it seems he only posts occasionaly

hopefully he will see this thread

#27
then send the muppet something unpleasant in the post -- maybe a very old bit of fish ;-) see if he takes that
#28
i cleared sent and recieved

Yes, because I would expect when his computer is off, it would show as Offline wouldn't it?
#30
would he still get the emails to say he has a private message?

still doesnt explain why he recieved my messages before but not now,

so he will always show as online on here unless his comp is switched of?
#31
I never turn my pc off!! so am always "online" even when I'm asleep.

so do u always leave hukd page open?

what i mean is he is showing on and off on hukd?

so say now if i shut comp downbecause i dont log of on here i still show as online? :?

I don't receive e-mails to say I have a private message, as I have disabled that function in my settings.

One of my homepages is HUKD, so whenever I use internet explorer, I am shown as online unless I close the tab that HUKD is on. When my brother uses my computer, it will show as me being online etc.
I assume when you close the HUKD page/shut off your computer, you are shown as offline

I am only playing Devil's Advocate. There may be a simple explanation, or he is deliberately avoiding you.
#34
He will show as offline if the PC is turned off.
#35
My emails are through hotmail...which I only check every few days or more.
#36
You could ask Admin through 'Contact us' to have a look through old thread/Pm/ details he must have given to HUKD/I don't know - some computer file stuff to try to track him down ????
#37
well edjaned, i think no point fretting on a sunday. leave it a couple days.
#38
should i start a thread askng for him to reply?

i presume he has the alerts about pms as he has replied to them previously
i pmed him about 2 weeks ago last and asked him if he had informed pontins yet to which he replied he hadnt (this was after i phoned him with my sisters address so he could change details)

then since i have sent the last few after recieving the letter regarding the holiday i have had no reply
#39
Would Pontins not have his number if you contacted them with it? Might be worth seeing if they'll call him to confirm if hes going or not.

i think its to late to do anything now anyway as the holiday is for the 30th june

but if i knew for definate he wasnt going i could get in touch with pontins to see if i could offer it on again or not

i just dont understand why people cant give u a straight answer either way :x
