I have spent my day so far waiting for BT – so what’s new the country’s most unreliable company does not show up for an appointment!. If BT spent less time on online dating and cared about their customer service things might improve a little.
At lunch time I took a walk up Steep Hill to the Cathedral and got this detail on a lamp post.
If you ever have to call a help or support line here is an article on the BBC you should read and a web site you will need in your favourites:
BBC News – Call centre menu options catalogued by frustrated man.
When at work I spend much of my time choosing options on the phone. I always choose silence when I call a certain accounting software company!
Here is a detail from yesterday’s “photo of the day”.
Not a post box this time!
The heavy rain yesterday finally took the last of the petals from the tulip I have been photographing in our garden. This was the final shot I got of it on Tuesday.
This mural is painted along the side of a warehouse here in Lincoln.
They were painting the lines today at the football club.
Michael needed a tent today – there was no way he was using my MSR Hubba but in my cupboard was this “Force Ten”.
I think I bought this tent in 1980 during a trip to Scotland – over the years I used it a lot for camping and I even backpacked with it! My pack weighed much more then than it does today. I stopped using it when I got a lighter dome tent and this “Force Ten” has not been out of its bag for nearly twenty years. When we unpacked it today I expected it to be no good, I especially thought the ground sheet would have perished and the proofing on the flysheet to have flaked off, but it wasn’t. Except for two perished rubber bands that connect the inner and outer tent the tent was in excellent condition and went up in the garden without any problems.
…and it has rained this afternoon and it is not leaking either.
