Re adverts. I inadvertently let the ClearTalk app expire and it took a day or two to sort out. Spam all gone again now :)

Chris, your house is sold...wonderful news.

Likewise. I had all sorts of plans for posting but real life has overtaken me again. Still, the house is sold and we'll be on the move soon so maybe I'll have time to focus. So many things happening out there too!

Not much comment on DD until something actually happens. Right now it's all threats, smoke and mirrors!!

Am surprised that there is no mention of the possible DD. I do wish TA would button his lip and let MT get on with his job as PM, possibly only for a very short time. :-\

I hate painting. Those of you on my Facebook friends list will be well aware of this by now but I figured I'd widen the boredom and tell everyone else as well. :)

Thank you, Minx.
Same to you.
Beware the "love rat" Valentines Day scammers...they told 65 yr old Maria she was beautiful, and she sent them $15,000 of borrowed money...that she'll never see again.

The 'problem' is that we can't see the chatacter set he's using to post. It's possibly Cyrrilic so we'd probably need it translated before we could see it anyway. :)

Some great news. Heard from Bambu who lost his password. Have mailed him a new one so hoping he'll be back soon to start new fights and cause as much aggro as he did in days of yore... :D

Service calls.
« on: May 04, 2016, 12:02:32 PM »
Do you ever get the feeling that booking service calls are a waste of time?? You set a date and before you start they usually make you agree to 'morning' or 'afternoon' calls so you are forced to wait regardless. However, despite the arrangement, they inevitably don't arrive when they say they will and if you miss them (or if you don't!!) they still claim they called and got no response.

Right now I'm awaiting the arrival of ADT security who decided a while back we needed a service call. They missed the first one and naturally blamed us, and so we made a second one... the one today.

The arrangement was for them to arrive between 9:00 and 12:00. Well, it's 11:45 and where are they? No call to tell me they are coming... or not. No apology for being late (tho I suppose they still have a few minutes) and I'm getting ratty!

It's the sheer arrogance of large companies that I find annoying. We're *customers* and create their profits. How hard would it be to actually provide service??

I'll be giving them a ring after 12:00 to complain... again. Where will it get me? Who knows. Well I waited... it's gone midday... no sign of them. I'm off to complain, again. Grrr....

Unsurprisingly they said it's *my* fault. In their diary the date was down as the 5th not 4th... well even with *my* hearing I couldn't mix up 'fourth' and 'fifth'. There ya go... that's what happens when you argue with call centre staff. Despite having confirmed I had the right date a couple of times they decided to mess me about. Why?? Probably because I was so annoyed they'd lied about having arrived for the previous appointment!

Next appt is the afternoon of May 16th... I don't know why I bother!!

It's time to start looking around for a new provider.
