Ta-dah.....

Hard drive? found.
Housework? done.
Ironing? done.
Drawer sorting? done.
Calls from people telling me about PPI compensation? 3.
First 4 all good, #5 is getting on my last nerve now............I mean really, are these calls just rubbish or one day should I ring them back and say 'whahay..yes... please send me my £3000 now'.
No...didn't think so.

Last time I got a call I told them how I'd heard a really disturbing report on the radio about PPI compensation cases which ended up costing the claimants more in fees than they got back in compensation.
And how the Office of Fair Trading was investigating them.

Never phoned back since.....

I like to make it a game when call centres phone me, the rules are simple: If I hang up on them, they win. If I can get them to hang up on me,I win.

It's a hoot, and easier to win that you may think. Call centre staff appear to be trained to deal with "irate", but not "weird"....

'Can you hang on, I'll just go and get my father'......

I get people ringing up asking for my married name. As I've changed it, I say there's no one of that name in the house. They should update their files!

I can't remember the last time I ironed anything... :)

Macy...worth trying methinks.
Andy....you tinker you...cut from the same cloth as the others I see.
Cro....but what about my £3000 to spend???
Sarah.....one day when I'm not working in an office I will live in clothes that don't need ironing..one day...
NB....do the Jehovahs have money for me too??

Congrats on the achievements. We seem to get a lot of those automated calls and I just hang up immediately :-(

I am rocking the carelessly dishevelled look, that's my story and I'm sticking to it, step away from the iron Libs, step away from the iron

They never ring me! I'm obviously blessed.
