You know what gets my goat?  You phone up a company a big one a corporate one ,and after the press this and press that you get the awful music and "The Wait" ................. :angry:

Having a recorded voice telling thier sorry for the delay but thier experiencing very heavy demand right now does not help me ...........

The worst of it is that in many cases its an 0345 number that my telephone provider charges me for , these local rate numbers are now a scam as quite honestly who in this day and age does not have a call plan ?

When you do get thru most likely the dippy tart on the other end hasnt a clue and whats more doesent give a damn :angry:

I had one yesterday screemin at me about  having my line ceased and having to pay a 30.00 plus severance fee if i moved to a non BT BB provider , out of contract be damned  !! I tried to explain we didnt have non BT providers in this area and tho i didnt know where I was going yet ..............PMT must be a horrible thing  :O  I hung up.....Couple of hours later I tried again and got a very reasonable lad who did me a deal , we were both happy...

Swinton Insurance keeps sending me out credit agreements ,almost one a day , but ive paid the policy in full  :rolleyes:

2 hours talking to SSE about BB yesterday and I lost the will to live ............

Today as he is home he gets to speak to the pension companys   (evil chuckle) last i saw he was listening to the silly music from NFU...........

Why is he home  ? The truck started leaking diesel........well whoever said ..hang on it was Nietzsche  , what does not kill you makes you stronger , would never have said that in 2015  :O Me Im gonna spend some time stareing into the abyss  , see if i can get any more sense out of it  than a corporate company that does not employ enough staff....

Good rant.

Yeah, it's infuriating having to wait on the phone. With the looping message telling you they're unusually busy, which given they're always this busy, is just a lie, they're just under staffed...

The ones which tell you your place in the queue aren't so bad. The best are the ones that offer to call you back...

Well  it seems that the providers of private pensions are still up to thier old tricks to get you to leave YOUR money in thier hands...Daft little tart tried to tell Garry she could only give him a  transfer  value which is bollocks as NFU gave him the full value  said no probs we call you just after 6th April finalize it and pay it....


Nope dippy tart has to grizzle about it, gets a bit taken aback when she learns hes not as daft as he sounds...no cant speak to u about it till middle of march...


Now as you know transfer amount is not total amount its the amount you get to transfer your money out to another pension fund and the original pension fund people take 2 arms and half yer liver for the priveledge of a bit of paperwork....we have already transfered a smaller pension some years back  to the NFU.


He has so many pensions because we were told that if you take out a pension working for firm A you can then take it to firm B ...........WRONG ................hence, Dynamic Logic.... Pertec..... etc etc ...all seperate pensions , lose an arm a leg and again part of yer liver so thank fck it can regenerate , if you want to transfer...you feel like that guy up a mountain who had an eagle pecking at his liver for eternity , Promethous  ? yeah right that aint how you spell it ...




Meanwhile Garry peers under the bonnet of the truck, in a studious manner rather like a Chow watching an ant cross a patio ..........I understand this take a lot of skill its a man thing ...peering , then you have to have a coffee tea beer  ..delete as aplicable ...think a bit more scratch yer nutts....pick up a spanner put it down think a bit more .....

I dont beat around the bush...which has most likely given Carl such a wide opening you could drive an artic thru it  :O

I am at it again, it must be the stress, you would think if you took a parcel in for some one  over 24 hours ago tho they were in and could not be arsed to answer the door , they might have collected it by now...


I cant get PMT so maybe the lack of patience is the  start of Altzheimers? Or even Mad Cow Disease.....Steady Carl.... :tongue:
