Ever felt like you’re about to be conned …


I bought a Kindle Fire just before Christmas. I was a good deal, as it was about half price and I’ve found it a lot better than the original Kindle that I’ve had for a couple of year.

Early in the week, I received an email from Amazon advising that there may be an issue with the charger coming apart when removed from the wall. It was a product recall for a particular charger. When I checked, mine was one of the suspected chargers. adapter creditThe email explained that I could either have a new charger sent or they would credit my Amazon account with £12.00. I thought that it was a good idea, as I have that many chargers, Adater buythat I did not need another. I don’t know what made me do it, but I clicked the wrong link in the email and was directed the the page to buy a replacement. It didn’t register with me at first, but can you see where I think I was being conned?

Granted, the replacement charger is a better quality charger (or so Amazon say) but maybe they should offer to credit my account with the amount it would cost to buy a replacement. It was only by chance that I selected the replacement. I have never had an issue with buying from Amazon, as the recent purchase of the shower-head proves, but I think they need to look at this again. I think I’m going to write to them and ask for their comments, but I thought I would share it with you first.

Fault …


   So it’s my fault. It always is my fault. Doesn’t matter what happens, it’s my fault. I stand here accused, and I admit my guilt !!! But the question is…… why is it always my fault ??? There is no answer to that. I’m the scapegoat …… I’m the one who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time … ergo mia culpa !!!

   On a more lighter note, returning to work was as much as I expected. It never fails to amaze me how many half-wits one Council can employ !!! When will you learn that you cannot take people on face value. You need to dig a little deeper.

   Oh, and why do Saga keep sending me letters ? So, okay I insured my car with them once. But that was three years ago now. Hello, I’ve not insured with you the past two years … do you not get the picture ?
