    Vodafone sucks big time!
    Did I mention just how crap Vodafone is?

    After several hours and days to various help desks – 3 days later they still can’t reinstate SoHo after cancelling it for no good reason when we upgraded to a Hard Drive recorder that they supplied – everything has been their fault all we want to do is give them money to watch what we had been happily watching prior to ‘upgrading’ and they say they can’t flick a switch any faster than 3 working days (this 3 day thing was only mentioned on the 2nd day of trying to get them to fix their mistakes)- pricks!

    What kind of undynamic clunky systems are they running in there
    Not good enough!

    Does anyone out there know any names of anyone high up in the Vodafone hierarchy, better yet their phone numbers or email addresses – I am about to take the battle of the pissed off consumer to their battlements…

    …and every website I can think of that will allow disparaging comments about Vodafone’s lack of consumer service and empathy – and I have all this free time to do it now – until they reinstate the channel!
    They were the ones who addicted me to Penny Dreadful – who knew what further horrors they had in store in their ‘lack-of-service’ department!

    Corporate arrogance is so unappealing!

    (Edit: oh yes, tip to the so called 'help desk’ people and supervisor (John and May) who both said on different days that they’d expedite, then escalate, the solution and that they’d phone me back to let me know – well I’m still waiting for those calls too – bastards!)

    Bugger Vodafone!

    </rant – for now)

    Memories…
    Why just today, while enjoying a souvlaki at casbah, I was delighted to stumble into Debbi Gibbs’ lakehouse, and great to see she’s looking good, just the same in fact, and comfortable, good on her…
    bet her son loves the Aquada

    … duck out and buy the latest copy of Home magazine
    (June July) and have a look, there are some other
    really nice places in there, too

    ‘don’t be a dick’ is the main Public Address guideline for discussions.
    I’m not the one who needs to do some reflecting.

    sigh....

    through a glass darkly...
    a little charity goes a long way

  • Hard News: The Letter, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    About six blocks from here the Party candidate is putting up a vastly more spirited hiding to nowhere fight against Brownlee than happened back in 2011. Personally I’m glad that no-one’s managed to convince him that the Party’s fucked.

    The Truman Show redux perhaps?
    Brownlee is looking a little 'Dewey-eyed'

    not a Catholic then?

    ...but National was really already venerable when it was born.

    are you saying they are some sort of sub-sainted vampires!

    Venerable (in the Roman Catholic Church) a title given to a deceased person who has attained a certain degree of sanctity but has not been fully beatified or canonized.
