*ankers away

Unexpected advice from a senior relative (male) received last night by email:
"Have nothing to do with British Gas. They are all *ankers."
Except that the missing letter was left in. I omit it only out of consideration for any users of cybernanny software.

Even more amusing is that the email was transcribed by a senior relative (female) from an oral communication.

Anyway, having finally got a straight answer out of a very nice lady at British Gas, who took my details over the phone and gave a quote even higher than the too-high quote received a couple of days ago, the contract has been cancelled.

To save the effort of any smart alecs out there, the missing letter was not b, c, d, h, l, r or t.

    Try Scottish & Southern? Alex

  2. We will try the lot, and we will go to them direct (tedious though it is) rather than go through a switching site ...
