lady on the phone tried to get me to auto renew by saying you get loyalty reward of 9 callouts instead of 7. that is still not a good deal because even if you are unlucky enough to need them more than 7 times its still cheaper to take out another new policy after 7 times.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Found a buy it now! Only downside...£95 with postage. Still £5 less than what I would have paid if I won with my highest bid.

I want to find out how they moved it so sticking arround in the morning to see the site manager / foreman.

If they dragged it by rope or spec lift from the front I'll be after compensation for two new rear tyres new brake shoes and handbrake cable. If they used a spec lift from the rear I'll be demanding a full safety report on the front suspension and steering column and two new rear tyres! One of the front tyres is now looking rather flat (I checked them last weekend so I know they were at the right PSI) so I suspect they've used a spec lift from the front.

Am I over reacting or am I well within my rights to go nuts at them?????

It would appear they've dealt with assholes like me before they have photos of the car being checked for damage before hand, then it was sling lifted moved and put back on the road again with more photos to proove nothing was damaged. They also noted that the handbrake wasn't fully engaged and whilst lowering the car (the rear was in contact a few inches before the front) it did move under it's own weight in a downhill direction (hence the slight tyre scratches). So I went out for an arguement and got an apology and full explanation. Oooooooppppsssss



forgot todays grump - not been sleeping properly for ages and am comming down with something, have a high temp and swallon glands my neck is killing me and in work

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Person mucking me about on eBay, paid £90 for a steering wheel for my xbox, plus £5 postage, they emailed me asking me to pay a extra £5 as postage was more than they thought.

Just hope they don't **** about with it before they post it lol.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

No free parking spaces along a road at work where I usually park, so had to shove it in the paying car-park yet again. Another £5 gone for the privilledge.
Need a new job with free on-site parking...
