    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

I recently had 2 days off work sick (unpaid) I had a doctor’s appointment on one of the mornings …after the doctor’s appointment I went to cut the grass on the front yard however whilst cutting the grass my line manager drove past my home I presume to check up on me ……can they do this ? Can I do anything? as I believe it is classed as stalking / harassment ……..may I add I have previous good attendance at work

Not sure that is harassment !

 

You are PRESUMING, but there may be a legitimate reason for the line manager being along your road ?

It may be the employer checking up, or it may be purely coincidental - problem is that there is nothing you can do to prove either way

 

IF the employer was checking up then providing they aren't doing it constantly, or parking opposite your house with binoculars there is little that you can do. I presume that the street outside your house is a public road?

 

It might feel obtrusive, but is on the evidence so far, a long way from harrassment

Hi melowyelow,

 

Please don't take offence but think about this great piece of advice my mum gave me. :)

If you have an unemployed identical twin who lives with you, he was cutting the grass while you we're in bed ill.

Getting caught in that lie ("identical twin" ; prove it) would only 'add fuel to the fire'.

I think you may be missing the point.

 

What kind of work do you do that is more taxing than grass cutting?

 

It sounds like you were not ill.

 

Your employer thought you didn't sound ill, clearly.

 

And it looks like you were not ill.

 

Any comments on your actual illness rather than trying to find a technicality?


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Agree with Emmzi - if you were off sick with stress then there would be nothing wrong with cutting the grass, however calling sick with a bad back and being unable to move could see any employer suspicion and checking up being justified

 

Definitely not a good move to confront the boss with it though.

Sounds like a bad working relationship. Unpaid sick leave and a boss willing to take a 24 mile drive to check up on an employee, because their sickness was not believed.

 

If there is a history of sickness absence and inability of the company to function properly due to this, then i could understand why a boss would do this. If the sickness reason given would not have allowed cutting the grass, then i could see this going down the standard disciplinary process, where the company would review the situation.


We could do with some help from you.

That's where the identical twin comes handy 😉

King, are you seriously suggesting that the OP should lie?

No, but if the op has got an identical twin it would be difficult to prove who was cutting the grass...

Right. Incidence of 33.3 per 1000 live births.

First step then would be to check that they are in the 1 in 30 who have an identical twin, rather than the 29 in 30 who don't!.

29 to 1 : not great odds.

29 to 1 (births)

1 in 30 live births.

Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, just that you'd want to check it is true before suggesting the OP rely on it!

I started the sentence with "If".

A possibility however remote, but stilla possibility

The OP hasn't been back to the thread since early yesterday morning. I suggest that we wait for them to come back with further comments, including whether they have an identical twin.
