Aye, you could be right there! My Dad was once a caretaker at a library/information centre and every time I went up there, I came away with one of the many brollies he had stored after being found. Amazing that no-one appeared to reclaim them - except some maybe-not-so-daft-wee-wummin! yes.gif

Oh Catherine, I have a chance to be useful. Here is a tip to start the plastic wrap.

You put a short peice of scotch tape on the place where it looks like the wrap starts and lift it up.

I put my plastic wrap in the fridge. Easy to find the end works a treat, doesn't take up a lot of room either

Tesco Direct have a 'collect in store' option and our local Tesco is staffed by fairly stupid people at the best of times - but this day they were on overdrive. There were around twenty people in the queue getting very irritated and I waited around forty minutes and when I got to the front I realised why there was a delay as the morons running it had no clue what they were doing. I got moron #1 and showed him my ticket number. He looked at it as if he had just seen 666 tattooed on my forehead then asked what it was I had come to collect and I said 'a suitcase' so he immediately went to the shelf behind and started looking at a bunch of small parcels that could only have contained toothbrushes or slippers or books. He said 'it must be in the back' and I thought 'and while you're there, get your "I'm Stupid" sign.

Conversation with British Gas on Tuesday 6th Sept 2016

XXX Hello, my name is XXX how can I help?
Me: I want to enquire about British Gas Landlord Care Package.
XXX: How old is your boiler?
Me: Brand new, just purchased and it is being installed this coming Thursday the 8th September
XXX: So it’s an old boiler have you thought of replacement?
Me: I’ve purchased it from Scottish Gas today the boiler is being installed on Thursday coming.
XXX: So, you need a new boiler….
Me: No, I’ve already indicated that there is a new boiler going in on Thursday of this week and I’ve purchased it from British Gas, the salesman was out today….
XXX: Hold on please till I go and check with my colleagues.
8 minutes later
XXX: Hello, we can offer a package that suits your needs but if your boiler is older than 5 years, we possibly won’t be able to cover it. Have you thought about purchasing a new boiler?
Me: Thank you for your assistance and comprehensive understanding my request, have a good day.

Thomas your post does not surprise me. I think we are dealing with idiots these days, or those pretending to be such.

I've had similar conversations with that waste of space Scottish Power!
