Why don't you get things started It's time to get things started On the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational This is what we call the Muppet Show!
Yep, Orange again. Dawned on me it was way past the 30 days they'd mentioned for delivery of the 2Gb MicroSD card. Not that it's that critical given I got myself an 8Gb one but I object on principle to letting Orange backslide on something they'd promised me.
So, through to retentions and the chap I spoke to said they were out of stock and, when I observed that almost two months is a remarkably long time for a commodity item like that to be out of stock, he mentioned that there was a spreadsheet of people awaiting this item. Earliest date was 28 March. WTF?! How can they have been out of stock of such a commonplace item for 2.5 months? What a bunch of living brain donors!
General appeal to anyone reading this: come September 2010, if you have the slightest suspicion I might stay with Orange, thump me! I've probably got as good a retention deal as I'm ever going to screw out of them and that's what I'll use as my starting point with whichever operator strikes me as likely to piss me off least...
