Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

After my annoyance at having an early wake up call from a spammer (and the repeat calls for the rest of the morning) which I moaned about in the Hate thread this morning I have sorted out a Call Blocker and on phoning VM to get the required Caller Display the nice agent gave it to me for free. Not a lot of money saved but it made me happy.

And made potential spammers unhappy, a double whammy

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I don't need caller display, I know it's the Mother-in-law somehow, different harsher tone in the ring, caller ignored

: @ Mr K

The other thing that will make John happy is that the Call Blocker has a Big Red Button that I intend to let him push to get rid of any nuisance callers. His swearing at the caller this morning, although it did the trick and seemed to be a great de-stressor for him, unnerved me and made me spill my mid-morning cuppa.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Well after having to use a printer at the other end of my building (last Thursday I walked about 2.5 miles between my desk and it.)

I finally today have a dedicated network printer in my office, now to print of some 2,000+ pages this week.

I'll have to go a long way to beat my last job, some 1.2 million pages. Thus killing the photocopier

You can't beat gelling a cols caller to "Go and fuff yourself" then hang up.

Down in Cornwall at the moment in my mums house. Painting, decorating and fixing things. Finally the storm has blown itself out but the winds the last two days have been pretty strong. Now it's just wet.

Left the OH to hold the fort at Heero Towers.

Sorry Den, she passed away last summer. We're getting the house ready for sale. My sisters have been dealing with her personal effects.

I'm doing the things that I can do best. Mostly maintenance stuff.
