Has anyone else seen the new 118 118 TV adverts? The commercials claim that the directory enquiries service will allow you to “Ask us anything” – presumably not just telephone number related queries.

Surely this new service is just opening the door to perverts, allowing them to harass some poor, young, call centre girl by asking “What are you wearing?”

Presumably they don’t have all the answers, and if asked impossible questions like the meaning of life, the weekend lottery numbers, or how to set up Mail Merge in Word; you won’t get a satisfactory response.

However, as long as we live in a country where parents hide their children under beds and claim they have been kidnapped, watch Coronation Street on TV, and drink pints of Stella; there are enough idiots out there to believe the commercials and call the stupid service.

  • 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.
