Where are the radio reviews? Three Cheers for Pru Goward!

I think I’m just about insane!

Since about 12:40am my day has been quite interesting to say the least. A series of peculiar events had me in quite a glum and sour mood…however I would like to thank Telstra for tipping me right over the edge in to insanity.

For some reason Telstra just love to ring me on my mobile even though I have asked them not to, in an effort to sell me a new phone and a new deal…unfortunately I like to humour them and listen to their deal for a while before telling them that I’m happy with what I’ve got, something they usually follow with a repeat of their “better” offer, filled with things I don’t want. After this I reveal to them that I asked a few months ago to be removed from their marketing list, to which they assure me that it was a different department, and I assure them that it was their department, and they hang up.

Whilst Telstra’s phone calls on the matter are most annoying, it was just what I needed to lift me out of a peculiar mood, and put me in to either a deranged or insane frame of mind.

It will be interesting to see what else will happen today, and the first fourteen hours have been most entertaining.

    Why don’t you take your business elsewhere? I did that to the Commonwealth Bank when they kept trying to sell me things.

    That’s the trouble, my business is already elsewhere! They’re trying to convince me to give them my business.

    I nearly launched in to a tirade on the phone about how I’m happy with a phone with a monochrome display, and don’t want any extra features…it is called a telephone for a reason.

    But then I thought that he didn’t sound like he was enjoying his job and there was little point in me getting angry at him when he was just reading whatever script he was given…and it was hardly his fault that the Telstra saleswoman from three months or so ago didn’t take me off the list.
