    Have to agree with you Martin. Companies are staffed by humans, customers are humans and humans make mistakes.
    If I have a problem with a business then I ask them to put it right. If they do then I am happy. If I don't like the way they do business (but it is legal) then I vote with my feet, only if it is illegal will I take the matter further.
    Find out who you are and do that on purpose (thanks to Owain Wyn Jones quoting Dolly Parton)

    "Our job is to stop companies making money"

    Not sure I agree with that. Surely everyone is allowed to make a reasonable living.

    Why do you need money to have a reasonable living?

    If everyone worked for the good of society and supported each other then everyone would have everything they needed (albeit not what they wanted, however).

    I accept the socialist implications of that last paragraph but just think about it for a moment: it is only selfish, greedy and egotistical behaviour that drives our societies like this.
