It’s come to the Blogmeister’s attention that there has been some displacement activity followed by some digression on the Booyakasha Comments thread. As follows. Do join in if it might help. But first of all we need to ask you some questions for security purposes under the data protection act. How many letters are there in your dog’s first birthday…?

Today, rather than cleaning the windows, I wrote two letters in an OS Moment. One to Carphone Warehouse telling them they were bunch on con artists and utter
tossers, and the other to their insurance company telling them they are bigger swindlers that those who swindle them.
Katie lost her phone. I went to The Carphone Warehouse, gave them chapter and verse on how it happened and a police crime number, and expected them to replace the lost phone because it was insured. The matter was ‘referred’. I then received a letter from ‘Geek Insurance’ asking me for further details, including all the minutiae of what type of bag it was in; what sort of clasp it had; who was the last call made to, and why; a copy of the police report; etc. etc. etc. The bloody thing is an 18 month old LG Cookie, and I told them I was withdrawing the piffling claim because I have an impeccable insurance record and I have no intention of allowing a company that calls itself ‘Geek Insurance’ to ruin my reputation.
What I didn’t tell them is that I’ve stopped the last six direct debit payments, which will just about get me a phone like for like to the one that is lost. I expect another letter from them in due course asking me why I’ve stopped the payments, and I’ll enjoy not cleaning the windows again.

The mission statement of all insurance companies is ‘give us your money, then f*ck *ff’. I’ve had those questionnaires when I was burgled twice. The subtext behind every question is this: give us just one reason not to pay you.
