What’s that old saying? “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is”

I found out the hard way after using that price comparison website ‘Go Compare’ – ‘Go Fuck Off’, more like.

After agreeing a deal with some insurance company to cover the contents of my flat, I discovered today that the policy is invalid and cannot be offered due to the fact I live 250 meters away from a river.

Now I know people get floods and houses become badly damaged as a result, but for that water to reach me, it would have to climb a steep hill, destroying hundreds of houses and probably killing thousands. It would be the biggest natural disaster to happen in the history of the universe and would make that 2004 Indonesian tsunami look like a dripping tap.

However, this company refused to see my logic (and common sense) and therefore the deal is off. I won’t be using them again, even if I move to another property. Not because I hold grudges, but because I can’t be bothered to read all their other exclusions which could include alien abduction, cloned dinosaurs nicking your telly or the ghost of The Titanic falling through the sky into your living room.

Instead, I went crawling back to my old insurer, begging that they take me back and apologising profusely for my treachery in turning to the dark side. A nice Geordie lady reassured me everything would be OK, that they would have me back, Ant & Dec would get a No.1 single and Newcastle United win The Champions League.

Geordies are much more reassuring than Essex girls.

    “Geordies are much more reassuring than Essex girls” For who – the pie industry?!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
