We seem to get silent phone calls quite often SG. OH has taken to not speaking when he answers the phone until the caller speaks. I don't know if they might be those annoying automated ones. So much for TPS!!

 

I don't suppose you're with Virgin? I'm registered with TPS and had zero silent calls until we switched - now we get around 3-5 a day, sometimes more.

The calls are coming on my mobile phone, my house phone does not ring in the house (I mostly use it to find out where I put the mobile!).

 

I'm on O2 with the mobile and house phone.

We get the same. We're with TPS and we still get the calls about PPI.

How the hell can this happen? There are 3 types of cane used by blind and sight impaired people. None of them look like samurai swords.

 

Someone clearly needs their eyes testing.

Another call, this time the caller seemed to be using the loo - I think I have narrowed it down even further now. Sad person obviously has no life.

 

I am just going to repeat that they are wasting their call allowance and that the calls are recorded.

Thats what l am still trying to work out l always thought a samurai sword was different. Its defently wider.

 

maybe the officers who are carrying fire arms or taisers need regular eye checks.

No - we're with BT. TPS was very effective for years but the last year or 2 it's not so good.

 

I got someone selling alarms the other day and to be fair as soon as I mentioned TPS she said she'd remove our number from the database.

Apparently you have to register with TPS every year, somebody told me it was every 6 months (yes they were a cold caller).

 

Another call at just before 6am this morning, whoever it is is very very sad. I 'missed' that one and it didn't go to voicemail.

 

A Samurai sword is rather larger than a walking stick, and they are NEVER white. The policeman in this case seems to have shown he is not capable of rational judgement when holding a firearm and should be taken off all further duties of that kind without being allowed a period of 'retraining'.

The trouble is finding out who these companies are, and report them to the ICO because it's their job to find out if you are registered with TPS and not bother you in the 1st place.


If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

I am completely baffled as to how someone could ever make that mistake, particularly looking at the gentleman's white stick in the video, and even more so looking at the way he moves. It's blatantly obvious that he's visually impaired. I can't wait to hear the explanation for this one.

 

What made me swear today (last night, technically) was our over the tap shower basically exploding and covering my 15 year old daughter and entire bathroom in hot water. Thankfully, my OH very sensibly turned down the water temperature when we moved in here, or she would have been scalded. Nevertheless, turning the blasted thing off wasn't a particularly pleasant experience, even with a towel over the hot tap to stem the flow.

You're right, Sod'em! I completely forgot to account for the possibility that the blind man could in fact have been a ninja!

 

One can only pray, when it comes to the possibility of the officer concerned being licensed to carry a firearm.

As we all are!

 

I have seen the 3 types of cane used and do not understand at all how they can be mistaken for a samurai sword. Oh, and I don't have that much corrected vision either.

It's bad enough looking forwards at times these days WITHOUT having to look over our shoulders all the time now too and so that could be the REAL reason for the continued crop circle myth....it's caused by all the cops running around looking for the real criminals

They shouted for him to stop. How did he knows they really were the police and weren't thinking of mugging him?

Bloody phone. When charging, the light is orange. When charged, it goes green. It went green yesterday and I unplugged it. Can't turn it on. Stupid phone.

 

I seem to remember that 10 years ago, when we had those brick phones that just text and call, (I do have one of these for running; but it's not quite a brick!) there was no such problem.

My unknown caller went barmy yesterday - but they obviously have a far sadder life than I have. so that must be why they are trying to irritate me.

 

I just say Hello and leave the caller either to identify themselves or ring off.

 

It isn't a company at all, I know that, but whoever it is would seem to be in need of some psychological help for their 'addiction' to calling me when they are going to the loo....
