I have been inundated with phone calls and text messages today, harassed and harangued from all directions.
I've had four phone calls from my old bank, they have suddenly realised that my salary is no longer going into my account. I did tell them I wanted to close the account but it seems I can only close the account on the 32nd day of a month with an X in it!
So I cancelled all the SO's and DD's and left £10 in the account for two weeks, just in case.
I've had two phone calls and three text messages from Sky, asking me to come back to them.
I've also had two text messages from the local surgery reminding me that my L&M has an appointment tomorrow.
This evening I had a PPI call and finally, last but not least a call from an Indian call centre to tell me that my phone and broadband service would be cut off within the next few days. When I enquired why I was informed that it was because my computer was infected with a virus that was contacting other computers and causing problems for my neighbours.
I love these calls, in a quavering voice, I asked the young lady to repeat herself three times and then told her that I didn't own a computer. She then carefully explained that it must be my laptop that was causing the problem, again, in a quavering voice, I asked her to repeat her explanation three times. I then told her that I didn't have a laptop either. I won't repeat what she called me, I assume it is an Indian endearment that means endearing old lady!
