    There are so many different numbers that blocking them is going to make no difference at all.

    Should've tried Purple Bricks! Maybe renting though. I was thinking Nysti that any num that shows in your phone log which is not a named contact, you could pick out and block or block straight after you see a rogue num. Hope he gets a new home soon or changes his mind for you

    companies that make bespoke items of clothing that then dont fit but expect you to pay the balance ( a massive amount, it is a weddingicon dress) before they will alter it properly but cant do it for another 3 months. Well, if I am paying the balance I want to take the item away and bring it back when you can do the work so that way I know it is covered by insurance and exactly where it is all the time

    Been having trouble using my card over the last week. Finally managed to get into town why this was. I was told another card had been ordered and he couldn't tell me anything more.

    My card has been compromised.

    Having checked my emails, it turns out I'd ordered something with a dodgy company. Couple things that are a bit weird - order was February and I've changed cards since.

    you try typing when you have multiple sclerosis. I can assure you that any sort of physical co-ordination is very difficult so hitting the key one letter away from the intended one is pretty good for me.
    Funnily enough, the regular contributors here seem to have got used to it and dont go round making a meal of peoples grammar or spelling even when they dont know the background of the poster.
    Still at least I didnt hoist myself by my own petard.

    last night, caller from a DCA for a person who has never lived at my address, they claimed they were given it as a work address. Yeah right, perhaps I run a factory in my garage. That still doesnt fulfil the requirements for debt collectionicon activity. Luckily for them my wife answered or they would be looking for a dentist this morning.

    adverts
    switched on the radio, adverts.
    tv on, adverts. changed channel, adverts.
    they all are at the same time re the tv.
    adverts all the time, and they are stupid ads.
    went on a beeb channel. no adverts but not much worth watching, despite the fee.
    at least attenborough is having a whale of a time. fair play.

    todays is an odd one. A supermarket opened about 3 years ago near to a well established newsagents and now the neswagent has closed down but the new shop, having succeeded in taking all of the business has failed to stock enough neqwspapers to cover the demand from the closed shop. I now have to walk 2 miles to get a paper but shall be doing my shopping whilst I am out and will probably continue to do so rather than risking a fruitles journey.

    wnet to my local supermarket today for newspaper- sold out again (3 out of last 4 days because locla McColls shut down and they didnt ordr enough papers to make up for the shortfall) so walked a mile to next supermarket to get paper. i was behind a gentlemen who bougt 8 worth of groceries including some reduced price cherries for a quid. The bar code wouldnt scan and nor would the tillaccept the 32 digit stock code so supervisor called. took 6 minutes to make the sale go trhough. i told them after 3 minute to just give the bloke the cherries as it would be cheaper than the cost of sorting the problem. Well, they smiled at me and carried on regardless. my calculations are that the staff time spent on this was 80p for an item that will have been sold at near cost anyway. iwas right, woulf have been cheaper for the store to give them to him and get on with serving someone else. i shant be going back in a hurry as I can use the wasted 6 minutes to walk to the next shop
