my bitching involves a certian college kid whom i really like and who also likes me (apparently). He got his liscense revoked. For a flipping year. And now he can't drive back here and i won't get to see him in forever. very very suckish. :'( if all the guys my age weren't complete idiots, this would probably be a good thing considering the 4+ year age gap between us...sigh and sigh some more.

I have been looking for a job over a month now and only got one job interview and it was for a telemarketing position with Weedman and the hours were ****ed up anyways. Ended up not getting the job so I'm chill with that.

=( I need a job, ARG!

also I'm kinda pissed off that no one told me that yestarday's desert had peaches and walnuts in it... since I'm ALLERGIC! Had to get my stomach pumped. ****ers.

I must go to work, and I don't have the time to play video games and watch movies on my PC. This is what bothers me the most.

I've just got off the phone to Orange Braoadband.
I rang them to cancel my connection because I'm going over to another ISP.
On ringing I got the 1 for this...2 for that etc, etc. then had to wait a good 10 minutes of enforced listening to shite music before finally getting an Indian call centre.
Or so I thought.
I was then put on hold again for another 10 minutes of tortuous, coma inducing muzak before finally being connected to their "finance department", only for the idiot on the other end of the phone to tell me the contract had been cancelled "thank you and goodbye".
..and hung up.

Fine...if it wasn't for the fact that I didn't want the cancellation to be until the end of next month (when my other ISP has been set up).

Fearing I was about to lose my connection earlier than I wanted to...I rang again.
Another 15/20 minutes later of the same appalling musak (this time accompanied by much swearing) and what seemed like an endless string of transfers which appeared to take me on a tour of half the known world...I eventually got a moronic Geordie Newcastle!
Not only did she know less about what she was doing than her Indian counterparts (who were easier to understand btw), she didn't even seem to grasp the simple concept of me wanting to terminate my connection with Orange.
Every time I said I wanted to cancel, she rattled out another impressive deal in a vain attempt to keep me as a customer.
Undeterred, I finally managed to get it through her thick skull that I did in fact want to leave...really...and no, I wasn't interested in any of her enticing packages she had to offer.
I explained that I wanted the contract to end at the end of October and she finally relented... then the thick, cheeky bitch hit me with a £24.61 disconnection fee!!!

TWENTY FOUR POUNDS SIXTY ONE PENCE!!!...what the bloody fuck!!!

I've been with Orange for the best part of 4 years and they want to charge me £24.61 for the privilege of leaving.
Not only is it ridiculous to charge someone for cancelling, especially when I'm out of contract (by about 3 years)...but where the hell do they get such a random amount from? £24.61?

^ Ugh so annoying, I hate going through stuff like that. The same thing happened to me not long ago when I wanted to change to a different car insurance provider. They definitely wanted to make sure that I paid for leaving them. It's bullshit!

Anyway, today I would like to have a tiny little bitch about New Zealand. I love you, you are beautiful, but I would very much like it if you weren't so cold. Trying to open a car door that was iced shut this morning wasn't fun. Neither is defrosting my feet every night!

I'm so cold *shiver*

Orange are cheeky bastards, here's a phonecall i had with them a while back:

Orange: Hello sir, can i interest you in changing your pay as you go deal?
Me: Um no thanks, i'm pretty happy with what i've got.
Orange: It seems now you are paying 7p per text, how you would you like to improve this to 9p per text?
Me: No i'm sorry, i... wait, that's more money!
Orange: It's more VALUE for money sir!

Followed by a few minutes of me explaining basic maths.

The indian guy you spoke to RT will probably just be based in Newcastle. Theres an Orange contact centre in Newcastle, a lot of the folks I worked with at BT broadband went to Orange. There are of course other centres and it wouldnt surprise me if some of those are in India but if you ended up at the same department twice then you probably spoke to Newcastle twice rather than their queues being routed randomly between two different locations.

Actually we used to get a lot of complaints about that, about the indian guys at our place. Everyone was just assuming they were getting routed to India. We even had a desk set up for people who had complained when they actually WERE speaking to the Indian centres and demanded to speak to someone based in the UK. As most of these people were idiots (not all of them mind you) we actually had a perfectly spoken indian guy working with us on it, just to sort the genuine complainers from the racists :P

However getting charged to cancel? That really doesnt sound right. I'm relatively certain that even BT dont charge to do that, unless of course you are still under contract then they make you settle the rest of it.
