Fun Stuff / Severe weather warning
« Last post by Alsatian on March 14, 2019, 04:38:47 PM »
Severe weather warning.

The AA have warned that anyone travelling in icy conditions should take a shovel, blankets/sleeping bag, extra clothing(including hat and scarf), a 24 hour supply of food and drink, de-icer, rock salt, torch, spare battery, petrol can, first aid kit, and jump leads.


I felt a right idiot on the bus.

When i refused his offer to take this item from me for free the response I received was most uncharitable, i complained in the strongest terms to cancer uk, as i considered his request was totally unsolicited and would have placed me in clear breech of ebay rules had i acseeded to his request i regard the response i received from cancer uk was totally dismissive.

over the last month or two i have been receiving a call from number 08438702858 around midday, the phone rings for two times and then rings off, has anyone else had problems with this number?.

It's not a number I recognise, but you could try this website

https://who-called.co.uk

If it's a common occurrence it could appear on there.

I'm with BT who have a system that is supposed to stop nuisance calls from reaching us, and also registered with TPS, but still occasionally get nuisance calls. Yesterday I had 2 calls (from different numbers) both automated telling me that my Internet connection had been compromised and telling me to press '9' if I'm with BT and another number if I'm with anyone else - both times I just put the phone down as its a scam.

What's almost as infuriating are the times it rings and, when you answer the call, there's no-one there!

I'm seriously considering disconnecting the phone and just using my mobile.
