I got my Xbox 360 back yesterday. Not bad really considering I only rung up to report it faulty last Wednesday, that’s a 6 day turnaround. A big thumbs up to Mr. Bill Gates for that one!

My only criticism about the service is that had I not been able to leave the unit somewhere to be collected I would have had to of taken many days off work as the couriers (UPS) were unable to specify a day for collection and delivery.

Secondly Microsoft could only accept my faulty console with the HDD, which we had already established over the telephone in not being faulty. Because of the new HDD, all my game saves are now lost.

I had got very far on GTA: San Andreas and I don’t know if I have the patience to play through the whole thing again to reach the stage where I was before, which is a shame as it’s a brilliant game.

I had a go at Fifa 06 this afternoon too, well it’s The World Cup next month and I haven’t played it since February. I played 3 games and lost all 3. Either everyone else on Xbox Live has been playing it constantly for the past 5 months and become Fifa Masters or I have become shit. It was embarrassing, like watching Leeds against Watford all over again.

Lastly, somebody at work was winding me up all day yesterday about the Play Off result. Most annoyingly they’re not even a football fan. That is the worst kind of wind-up merchant as you can’t even explain why Leeds lost (they won’t understand) or mock them when their team does shit.

“3 nil, 3 nil, 3 nil…” they sung throughout Tuesday afternoon. This morning however I discovered that karma does exist. The “work bully” went to some keep fit class on Tuesday night where they found out, to their horror that they had put on 3 pounds in weight. Cue the inevitable song from me “3 pounds, 3 pounds, 3 pounds…”

  • 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.
