Idiots: Take 1

Orange have dropped my line rental by 20%. Yay.

Orange have offered me an upgrade on my handset, and I hate my current handset. Yay.

That would mean a new 18mth contract. Boo.

And despite having chosen the phone on Monday, I was told yesterday that I’m in the “wrong band”. Boo.

(That last one is odd, I’ve never even been in a band, unless you count noodling around on keyboards in Martin Gillespie’s garage when I was 14….)

This is not the first time I’ve ended up having to chase two different Orange departments because THEY screwed up. So, as soon as I can, I’m off to O2.

Idiots: Take 2

I put up an item on eBay and it sold for £97. Yay.

The buyer had no history, whilst ALL the other bidders did. Hmmmmm.

eBay pulled the item because of ‘rogue activity’ on the buyers account. Nuts.

Because the item was pulled, I have to go through the entire listing process again, rather than just clicking “Relist”. Boo.

I received an email from “paypal” to tell me the funds were in, and could I ship the items to an address in Nigeria. When I say paypal, the email came from officeemail.net but hey, they’d transferred £127 into my Paypal acc… ohh wait, they didn’t. Boo.

Idiots: Take 3

I filled my iPod with some music yesterday, planning to bring it into work so I can get my head down as there are a few items that have just leaped in priority and I want to get them done ASAP.

iPod remains sitting on my desk at home. Boo.

And finally…

Apparently it is now Spring. This is evidenced by the fact that is grey, cold, windy and raining.

You know what, I think chocolate will feature in my food diary today…
