And so it goes on

Comments Off on And so it goes on

The saga of the mobile phone drags on, causing chaos and destruction around it. So I’m not willing, as I may have mentioned to have a fourth credit check before the mortgage is through, and then today when I went to get the phone line reconnected (it’s got a ‘Stop’ on it), well… the saga went like this:

– Call Be, they say BT need to reactivate the line.
– Ring BT, be informed (somewhat rudely) that Be ‘should be able to’ reactivate the line and that ‘any Broadband supplier could do it’, and that I should ring them back
– Call Be, they say they can’t reactivate it from it’s current state and that I should ring BT, or Post Office Telephones who can.
– Call BT who *won’t* reactivate a line without a 12 month contract
– Stare faintly at Virgin before realising we’d be paying nearly a third as much again (which’d give us TV as well, but we don’t watch much TV – and we could get a freeview box).
– Call the post office who say yes, we can have it and no long contract, but…

…it needs a credit check.


Adding insult to injury I don’t know if I’ve paid off my loan, and I don’t know this because online it shows 200 odd quid – I’m not sure if this is credit or debit, and the bank are confused and say they think it’s paid off…


Kate's allegedly a human (although increasingly right-wing bigots would say otherwise). She's definitely not a vampire, despite what some other people claim. She's also mostly built out of spite and overcoming oppositional-sexism, racism, and other random bullshit. So she's either a human or a lizard in disguise sent to destroy all of humanity. Either way, she's here to reassure that it's all fine.
