The first day of my two weeks off was rather uneventful. I got up late – something which is customary for anybody off on annual leave. The rest of the day was spent playing Xbox, drinking coffee and browsing the net. My relaxation was briefly interrupted by two telephone calls…

The first was to Littlewoods. I was given some discount codes to use on their website. These would supposedly give me a hefty saving on a purchase of a “mans bag” which I wanted to buy. For some reason however, my debit card was charged £23, instead of the £6 which I was expecting. I rang Littlewoods to find out what was going on.

According to the northern female phone operator, ‘Littlewoods Online’ and ‘Littlewoods Direct’ are two separate companies, and even though the website confirmed my discount, I would not receive it. I cancelled my order, and went onto MSN to bitch about the stupid northern girl. I am sure she too was bitching to her neighbouring colleague about the stupid southern boy who messed up his order.

Quite frankly, I do not care, or wish to learn if there is a difference between ‘Littlewoods Online’ and ‘Littlewoods Direct’. Up until today, I have never used a catalogue shop, and after today, will never use one again.

Later that day I received an international call from India. The phone operator, who kept referring to me as “My man”, was trying to sell me gas and electricity. I am rather happy with my current supplier and have no intentions to switch, but thought I would have some fun with the chap.

I was told by the operator that they were prepared to better by current energy deal. When asked how much I currently pay, I lied and replied “around £5 a month for the lot”. This ridiculously low quotation of mine caused much confusion, and I was passed onto a supervisor, who began to read me his company’s policy. I got bored at that point, and midway through this speech wished him farewell before hanging up.

I wonder what fun-fulfilled events await me tomorrow! At the moment, I am planning on going to Argos to buy a new toaster – rock and roll!

  • 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.
