    Seriously Scamps, I struggle to believe they try that sort of thing! Wonder if they expect you to pay for postage too!

    Had a phone call today, from my "telephone service provider", apparently the last payment had not gone through and they wanted me to pay over the phone or they would cut me off. I asked him who my service provider was and he guessed wrong, I said "insert noise of wrong answer on that show" "wrong" and his reply was "how else did we get your number". I honestly don't know whether he is dumb or whether he thinks that I must be!!!

    At least the spam phone calls are evolving, give them that much.

    Evening all

    On my Sparks offers i've got 2.50 off nightwear - so thar could be the nightwear vests buy one get one half price???

    Also buy 3 tops get one free so that could be the 3.50 ones???
    So 3 t-shirts for 7 - not too bad.

    I was hoping to somehow combine the 2 offers but I dont think its possible

    Both offers on the main card and the emergency one.

    OH has 5 off swimwear for men

    I have a landlind but never use it (package) so only use my mobile. If I don't recognise the number they get a messege to leave a messege. If they don't they get blocked!

    I must have over 200 numbers in my blocked calls.

    Sometimes I will play games with them but mostly I'll just tell them to F off.

    We have the incoming number on the display, if I answer one I don't recognise it normally means I'm in the mood for having a bit of fun or I simply want to try to cost them some money.

    Our landline will probably last slightly longer than MiL, we simply need to be contactable at all hours just in case, and our mobiles get turned off overnight because OHs is a business one and mine seems to get strange calls in the middle of the night!
