    • Hi unclebulgaria67,  yes this is a review,  she doesn't really see the GP much as such, its only med reviews and if she is unwell apart from the diagnosed illnesses, she sees nurses for the diabetes checks etc, there is nothing new they can offer her so its a matter of managing and getting through the best she can, which is where I come in as her carer.  She had 12 months cbt for bipolar back in 2009, there are no new things added to cbt so there is nothing they can teach her there, her fibromyalgia is treated with pain relief, there is no nhs physical treatment as only a specialised massage is thought to help but the relief is short lived so the nhs don't provide it (understandably) there is no cure for the condition and we have tried everything.  I will just do my usual best and be there for any assessment which I will request is recorded and hope for the best. Thank you for replying.
    • I have not used a comparison site for some time now... Do they really pass your info on? When it says "we sometimes use your information for third parties to make your life better..."  Basically we just sell your data to anyone who wants it?! 
    • Well who hasn't had a few debts passed on eh?!  And who really wants to give the light of day to any of these scumbags. I accumulated 35+ yellow tickets NTK when parking at my shop premises and they have definitely ben passed on now, not that I care, because in my opinion they should never have been granted access to patrol that car park. 
    • I've asked you a number of questions in my post and you haven't addressed them. Please would you do this. It's a bit difficult having to chase people for answers all the time   Just to add to my original doom and gloom scenario, even if the vehicle is returned to you and you accept it – if it happens to you have received any parking fines or anything else during the period which it has been out of your possession, then you could also be challenged for that. If the purchaser does contact you again and you eventually decide to accept the return of the vehicle, I certainly wouldn't do it without having first ascertained the name and address of the purchaser – and verified this by some evidence – and also get a signed statement that they were indeed in possession of the vehicle from XXX date until XXX date. All very complicated and distasteful – but I'm afraid that this is the consequence of what your daughter has done
    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.

I bought a booster indoor ariel from Argos about 2 weeks ago for my step daughter and got round to faffing about with it today. It was to help the freeview signal in her bedroom as she doesn't seem to pick up all the channels.

 

Well we tried it and it picks up hardly anything at all, in fact the 99p rabbit ears that are currently in there picks up 4 times as many channels. Where do I stand? It cost me £14.99 and said it will specifically boost FV channels!!!!!!

Return it for a refund if it is not doing what it says on the box - if they argue threaten them with Trading Standards. If they still won't budge....contact Trading Standards.

Yes just return it. I have found with Argos, if they kick up a fuss, ask for the Manager. Make sure you go in on a busy Saturday though. worked with my Freeview box I returned and it was marked in the catalogue as a non-returnable item. The manager didn;t come but i got a refund.

 

What;s that saying... erm, "the custoer is always right?"

 

also, try getting an aerial with gain control on, these are really good.

In Argos advised you to use a booster, it would be incorrect advice! The correct way to improve a picture on freeview is to use a decent aerial. There used to be a phrase with computer programmers "GIGO" - Garbage In Garbage Out - same applies to aerial amplifiers

It is an actual aerial not a booster, sorry! Anyway I will take it back this week and see what they say!

 

Thanks for the help guys.

 

PS what is gain control?? Can anyone help out with a good aerial, don't want to spend a fortune though! This one that didn't work cost £14.99. TIA

...marked in the catalogue as a non-returnable item...

There is no such thing. All items are returnable to point of sale within a reasonable time frame from purchase under the Sale of Goods and Services Act, if they are (a) unfit for the purpose stated at the time of sale, or (b) faulty. Make sure you stand up for your legal rights and remind them of their legal responsibilities.
