Pointless and irritating phone call from British Gas

    I have just been interrupted in the middle of an important task (shelling monkey nuts left over from Christmas) to answer the phone. When I picked it up, a recorded message from British Gas told me that they had tried to ring me, but when I answered the phone all of their representatives were busy and unable to speak to me. Why ring me then? Why ring me to tell me that they have no one free to ring me? I didn't ask them to ring. I was quite happy eating my way through a bowl of peanuts. I had to stop what I was doing to be told that the person who had phoned me was too busy to talk to me.
    And breathe . . .

    I won't get started because I might give myself a stroke!

    And it would take hours anyway and bore you to tears.

    Shelling monkey nuts? I often string them together by the shells and drape them over the tress for the squirrels. When I told my sister she was incensed and demanded to know why I was encouraging vermin!! :eek::eek::eek:

    I love watching the squirrels in the garden. Vermin indeed!! :rolleyes:

    Sorry, I'm not helping with the 'phone call am I? :oops:

    Aren't all phone calls from British Gas pointless?

    Same with calls from BT, I find. And why they both think they have some divine right to call you when you have registered with the Telephone Preference Service to stop unsolicited calls is beyond me.

    It was a typo v easily made but inadvertently so funny that I couldn't resist making a joke of it.:)
