we have our milk delivered,fortunate in that respect,
they leave a bill, we send em a cheque,
this week,we had a bill tuesday, cheque in the post yesterday

got a duplicate bill this morning...........

however,they've recently changed their phone number, previously we spoke directly to the office regarding milk, change of order etc.
NOW its a call centre..
sadly they couldnt pronounce our name correctly even after being told three times,

cant speak directly to the dairy any more,

so its likely to go back to "the note in the bottle" communication......

This morning I received a call from a gentleman with a heavy Indian accent. I had to ask him to repeat who he was!

He was from the Accident Investigation Bureau and someone at this address had had an accident. Some cold call.

I told him to go away or I would call the police.

Needless to say no one has had an accident here - must watch myself and not trip again. ;-)

No Brian you aren't racist....

'or Brain as our AnnC said...she'll kill me for that '

I'm feeling pretty left out now too , cos I used to 'handle' the telephone calls and had a few ways of dealing them.
(Love some peeps responses on here)

But hubby has finished work now and usually picks up the phone before I do. Drat !

I do let hubby answer the door to cold callers, just because I like to hear his response as opposed to what mine would be.

Flip side of the coin.....these peeps have to earn a living .!

But they won't sell me anything I don't want ,ask for , think I need or require or to be preached at ........Thank You ! ...( I am always polite )

Memory recall !!.... I did flip off on the phone at the Gas company when they were digging up the street and replacing Gas Meters..
We had just had our driveway paved , front garden paved and paid for the pavement in front of the house to be dropped and re tarmacaded .(sp)
They said they would replace anything 'dug up'' back to as near as possible.
They were true to their word in as much they didn't touch our property, ( or the bleeding pavement we'd had to pay for )
But our neighbours had to have their paving taken up and it is a mess now !
It's around the gas 'box area' a metre square, but has sunk.
Think that neighbour will probably do it himself time.

Rant over...cos I cant get to do it now hubby's home ;-)

........Unless I take the phone into the bedroom !!
