    Angry gripe of the day

    Ok can anyone explain how car dealers get away with using 0844 numbers when you need to contact them ?

    Why should 'us' as the customer pay them 5p per min (or more depending if you use your land line or mobile) to call them and give 'them' 'our' custom ?

    Sorry I know its only 5p per min but the whole principle of it pisses me off to the highest

    ....oh and there's "a bit of jewish in him" rumours



    If it makes you feel better Craig, my IT department close problem calls without testing that the complaint has been fixed, and without asking if the complainer (me) is happy that its fixed.....you cant even reply to the email saying it's closed because they've not setup their helpdesk software properly !
    Then, as it's all outsourced, faces change that much that you dont even know who to complain to.

    try www.saynoto0870.com

    but also look on any letter headed paper to see if they give you a number to call from overseas, this will be the normal number as 08 numbers don't work from abroad
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.
