P recently (before the lockdown) borrowed a power washer from a friend as he wanted to clean up the patio slabs and garden furniture.

He was pleased with the results so decided to have a look around online as he was curious to find out how much it would cost to buy one for himself.

This is the screen he encountered when he logged into the B&Q website.

Wait an hour just to be able to browse the site before you can even think about placing an order!


  1. That is ridiculous. I wonder what B&Q stands for? Bottle up & queue! Just to check I found the same screen when I tried to enter their site. Crazy!

    1. Thanks Tasker. I shall check if they will deliver over here.

  3. Hope this is not the shape of things to come.

    1. Well it will be another way to save money. You can't go to the shops to spend it or get it online!

  4. Wish they had that notice here. K decided to do a bit of shopping 3 weeks ago. He ordered a TV, immediate delivery it said. Today he phoned to tell at them for the umpteenth time. It's coming they say
    He then ordered some pillows, same story there. One day...

  5. What on earth? I have never come across this before!
