Illegitimis non carborundum.

You know that that's not real Latin, don't you? And that the Latin plural of -mus is -mi.

 

Very good.

Or lets do the normal thing and moan like hell in public/on a forum/social media when it appears to go wrong

Yes it‘s joking Neo-Latin, not archaic or classical, quite a well-known scurrilous ludicrosity.  illigitimis is dative plural, as is normal for the agent with a gerund.  It continues the proto-indo-european thematic instrumental in *-o:ys, itself quite a problematic ending.

 

I must say I like this forum very much and enjoy the members‘ humor!

We have now fully investigated the non delivery of ef57's Stirling Single.

 

The order was processed, packed and collected on 26th June (within two days). The non arrival is down to an issue with the courier company which we are now following up.

 

A replacement was packed and sent from Shildon yesterday (16th July).

 

I can only apologise that the problems experienced by ef57 - which were outside our immediate control.

 

I would appreciate it if ef57 could acknowledge receipt in due course - so that we can bring this one to a close.

I  am happy to report that the beautiful Stirling did arrive a few days ago.  I am delighted with the model (its instruction booklet is a laff-riot!) and with Locomotion Models’ help with my problem.  Thank you!
