    Vodafone – an update

    Just taken a call from the office of the Director of Vodafone – a very nice lady apologised for the confusion and has promised to cancel the ‘contract’ today with no early termination fees due from me. She has also said, that as I no longer wish to port the number across, she’ll arrange for the line to remain open for 3 months to catch any calls from people who don’t have my new number. RESULT! 🙂 EDIT: Job done! Dear Mr Bennett. Thank you for your time today on the phone. I would like to confirm that I have […]

    Vodacon – an update

    So, a few more emails have gone back and forth – what they are saying now is that only 5-10% of calls are recorded and they’d need the sales agent’s name to find the call made to me. This sounds like bullshit to me – surely it would be marked on my account who had ‘sold’ me a contract? Anyway, I posted my woes on the Giffgaff forum and got this reply: Oh Vodafone! How they continue to live on their old reputation, but are one of the naffest networks about. Ok I had problems with Vodafone and I managed […]

    Vodafone

    Or VodaCON as I now call them are a bunch of pricks. When I had 2 months remaining on my 24 month contract, I called them up to enquire how much it would cost to pay off the contract as I had seen some really good deals on PAYG (Giffgaff) and was planning on switching. I got a call back from their sales people who offered me a 300 minute, unlimited texts and internet* for £10 a month. What’s more, the guy informed me, it would be a 30 day rolling contract so I could cancel anytime by giving them […]

    Apparently I “move too quietly”

    😐 Tuesday is steak night at the Gash (the local Wetherspoon), so Darren and I decided to go and eat some cow. A pleasant evening was had – lots of chatting while eating our cow-based meals, and a couple of pints were imbibed (it’s quite weird going out on a Tuesday night – you don’t want to drink too much ‘cos it’s not even halfway through the week*) Leaving relatively early, I arrived back at Lisa’s at about 9.30 or so and let myself in – this in itself is a relatively noisy affair, as my key tends to stick […]

    Spider hands, spider hands…

    So, laying in bed last night, Lisa was rubbing my back, when she suddenly stopped, looked slightly worried, then dissolved in streams of laughter (and I’m talking STREAMS – tears were running down her face etc.) I finally got her to say what was up, and her reply? “I was rubbing your back, and saw my hand on your shoulder and thought it was a spider…” 😐 You just can’t make this stuff up… Been a long week: up to Prestwick on Tuesday to test and inspect all of their jacks/tooling while they’re on summer shutdown (the aircrafdt industry generally […]
