Making a coffee in the morning at work, and finding the milk had gone off AFTER putting it in the coffee.

Thing is, I sniffed the milk and it was OK, but as soon as it hit the boiling water it turned to cottage cheese.

Cue mug washing.

2nd cup, new bottle of milk. Sniff. OK. All fine until I reached my desk and it had started to solidify again.

Cue mug washing and swearing. :mrgreen:

Br*t*sh G*s are an Abomination unto Nuggan

I asked for a quote from them to replace my (15 year old) boiler (which they installed 15 years ago) Everything went pear-shaped when they happened to discover that the boiler sits on an asbestos plate. (Said plate was there 25 years ago when we moved into the house and which the installers cut to size, by scoring it and snapping it! to fit under the replacement)

They said it would cost me GBP1600 just to have the plate removed and a certificate supplied, BEFORE they would even attempt to install a new boiler. Despite a legally-worded letter suggesting they at least pay for it to be removed because they haven't met their duty of care to me as a customer, they are adamant the plate is part of my house (!) and so my responsibility.

Needless to say I have terminated my long-standing service contract with them and got a independent installer to give me a better price on supply and installation. And a quote for removing the plate from a registered asbestos remover? (GBP160)

(I should also say that the actual engineers who come to do the servicing have always been professional, courteous and pleasant - I have no issues with them)

One of the charities I work for has been asked for assistance for a new boiler, from a very frail couple in their mid-80s.

Over £4,000 BG wants.

We've suggested they get a few quotes from other local fitters. Trustatrader.com has a goodly supply.

We had leftovers last night. Managed not to lose any of it. :shifty:

Hnorwood, glad you were able to get a much more reasonable quote from someone else! :shock:

My recent shift rota's are an Abomination unto Nuggan. :evil: (see minor niggles for details.)

I'm glad you got a better quote, Hnorwood, and I hope it gets sorted soon. :)
