    All you can do in your case @Cairney58 is keep on at them. Keep them to their time lines. If they say six weeks, ring them bob on the sixth week. They told me they could do it in their time line, but I constantly tell them " we have to stick to our time lines given to us by them, or else " .  So do unto others etc.

    If you fight, you won't always win. But if you don't fight you will always always lose.
