Gutted to miss the pre-beers/match/post-beers. I think I would still be in the Unity Tap now - sat in a corner covered in my own piss and spilt beer.
On to my Mum’s boiler - un update for @Fatso.
It is now fixed (after a fashion). Like Saints’ defence, it now occasionally does what it’s asked to do - in this case, heat water. But at least it has stopped spilling all the inlet water onto the kitchen below. That’s good.
Argued with the British Gas man and said something to the effect of “My mum shouldn’t be paying £40 a month for emergency cover for you to then come out and say you’ll do your best to fix it but it’s obsolete”. He agreed and said “Nobody pays £40 a month for a Homecare Plan. The most expensive is twenty-odd quid a month”,
A debate followed led by my mum and supported by me which ended with my mum triumphantly showing us her bank statement where £41 was going out…to Southern Fucking Electric and NOT British Gas.
Gasman looks smug until I reminded him that my point stands. It was a principle and if you can no longer maintain the boiler you should not take any fee to do so.
He then looks to extend the argument by agreeing with me in principle but stating that his only argument was that nobody pays £40 a month.
It was like arguing with Matt Hancock about nurse numbers.
Meanwhile mum is too scared to use the hot water from her ‘fixed’ boiler.
At least Saints won.
