  1. Over the course of two letters and two phone calls from me, and two letters from Casio, we've finally arrived at a point where my watch is now being repaired under warranty As expected Casio were trying to make the case that, as an accident had occurred this had to have been the cause of the watch breaking, and it must therefore be accidental damage and thus outside the warranty. My contention was that the watch hadn't hit the cab or the road, and neither my bike nor the cab door were damaged in the impact anyway (and none of them were marketed as the world's toughest cab, bike or h
  2. Thanks for the replies and sorry, I'm a bit pants at this quoting thing) I totally agree, MrShed, there has to be a limit on what one expects a product to withstand under "normal wear & tear", I understand companies have to protect themselves from excessive warranty claims. Equally, I understand the fault lies with the plum who opened the cab door without looking and myself for not being more thorough when assessing damage caused. However, as I mentioned before, my previous G- was indestructible and it was a further buy-in to the technology with this new purchase that made me n
  3. I wouldn't mind it so much if it was actually me they were chasing!
  4. Naah, no insurance. I should do really, but it's one of those things on the must-get-around-to-sometime-or-other-but-not-at-the-moment list.. Since we had kids I'm no longer allowed to ride a motorbike, and household ins frequently includes public liability, which is handy if you ride a pushie the way I do! Thanks for the quick response and the 'phone number as well, I'll give it a try in the morning. The guy in the shop said they only send stuff up to HO Mondays, Weds & Fri's so I'll prob get in there before they've even seen the watch! BTW, the best tactic I've found for e
  5. I had a Casio G-Shock watch for about 8 years and it was fantastic, the thing was harder than any Tonka toy. Very annoyed at myself for losing it last week but, as I live not far from the Casio G-Shock shop in Carnaby Street, all was not lost. I was able to nip in last Thursday, find a new watch I liked, fork over my hundred quid and come away contented. On Sunday evening some numpty decides to get out of the off-side door of a cab without checking the road and opens the door onto the front wheel of my bike as I was passing, knocking me off balance and, as the road was wet, the wheels
  6. Sounds to me like disaster capitalism getting started (google it - scary stuff). If the credit crunch, and higher prices for food/energy/every-bloody-thing bite us further and cause lots of people to lose their home those people will almost certainly have rakes of household stuff (TV, hifi etc) they don't want to lose or have to sell in the knowledge they'll have to replace it all sooner or later. Stands to reason they'll need somewhere fairly cheap and easily accessible to store that stuff 'til they get housed again won't they? Just think, in 30 years we'll think these were the g
  7. Thanks for the replies peeps. If I hear from them again I'll send the letter Andrew1's linked to and if a saga develops after that I will kick a new thread off. Regards
  8. Just a quick g'day really. I came here having googled the name of a DCA that many of your members have already come across. Fantastic site, I never knew about statute barred cases and looking for info on the DCA I've accidently found loads of links & legislation I can start quoting at the people dealing with my old debt (if I ever hear from them again). So hello and thank you already !
  9. Hi all. Like many, googling the name Mackenzie Hall led me here. What a great site, I've just spent a very illuminating 2 hours reading all 35 pages of this thread! In the last few months I've had quite a few calls to my ex-dir tel no from MH asking for someone I've never heard of. I've tried explaining that I've lived here 6 years, none of the post that ever turned up for former tenants when I first moved here had the name on that they were on about either but it doesn't stop them calling. In common with another poster here I tried an air-horn on 'em and that got shot of them for
