Thanks for nothing

I swear intelligent  imbeciles are employed (somewhere – mainly India) to pile on premium number phone charges. It took the guy twenty minutes (wasting a lot of them on too many thank yous for my patience) to understand that him sending me an email with a link to resolve my problem won’t work because I can NOT open any emails.  Not being able to open any emails being the bloody problem I phoned ABOUT. There was something Kafkaesque about our conversation. One of those sublime moments when you begin to question your sanity. When you get an inkling of some of the chambers of Dante’s hell awaiting you. Still, by then I’ll be dead. So it won’t matter.

That I am not close to a nervous breakdown is because I had one earlier. And there are only so many breakdowns one can have in the space of an hour before the white van shows up.




  1. Ursula, I have a few ideas that can help you deal with the problem and your angst, but due to their nature, I will send them to you via e-mail…

    • Please do, Phil [send me an email]. Since I am very fond of you I shall overlook the cruelty in your comment. The technical glitch has now been fixed. Over to you. Roger. And out.

  2. I especially dislike the 0845 call centres that spend the first two minutes telling you your call is being recorded, advising you of online troubleshooting, suggesting other services they can offer you etc etc, all at the caller’s expense. For feck’s sake, just let me talk to someone….

  4. Glad to hear your email problem is fixed. As for the nervous breakdowns…as long as you are on the phone with these “helpful customer service representatives,” there is no one to dial the “white van” people. So I think you’re pretty safe…
