    He who laughs last thinks slowest.

    I wished the buck stopped here as I could use a few.

    Why do Americans sing "Take me out to the ball game" when they
    are already there?

    Got a phone call at 8.20pm last night and a bloke said i had won a competition (i enter so many i cant remember) and i thought it was legit as i have a new number and dont often give it out.
    He said i had won a hair and make up treatment for me and a friend + a photo shoot and unlimited refreshments then i could take a photo home.
    i asked where they were and he said oxford street.
    i asked the name of the company but it was hard to here him, something... studios.
    All sounded great until.....
    i had to pay £30 per person refundable on the day to confirm i was going.
    1 i dont pay over the phone and 2 i shouldnt have to pay (even if refundable) for winning a competition!
    He said he was emailing me the details but didnt so when he rang me back today i told him to lump it
    :love: Life Is What You Make It:kisses3:
  • I have just recently had the call of 'you've won a holiday' and was given freephone number and reference number. I called the following day but the number was invalid. I have never won anything and i've had a tough year, so the thoughts of winning a hol, eventhough it wasn't the first prize of Caribbean, was brilliant.

    These phonecalls sucks!! How should they be able to call you and tell you such a lie....
  • I had a call a couple of days ago from space kitchens, saying they've picked my address to recieve a completly free £6000 kitchen, as long as they can photograph it for their new North West magazine. Unbeknown to them i happen to know someone who works for them, and they said you have to pay for fitting and design and only IF your lucky you get some money knocked off the value of the kitchen. Good job i was told otherwise i would never have got rid of there salesmen. Apparently hanging around is the understatement of the year!!! :eek:
    !!!!!!!!Bingo Mad!!!!!!!!:beer:
  • YES!!!

    they sold (i assume they sold it to make more money) my details to a company book company who called me 5 times in one day, and also to readers digest, who sent 3 invoices for £40 a year, i called them up and said id never subscribed and the guy said dont worry, its canceled, i didnt even need to convince him, took about 2 mins to sort it out!

    Hi do you know how I could cancel my membership with mutal points? Didn't know they revealed your details to others.
