We frequently get customers ringing us to ask if we have received their applications or registrations. After searching diligently on the computer system we invariably ask: ‘When was it posted?’
We get a variety of answers to this question.
‘I posted it yesterday.’
‘It definitely won’t have got to us yet. Ring us next week.’
‘I posted the form at the weekend.’
‘The post doesn’t work the weekend. Ring us at the end of the week.’
‘I posted it three months ago.’
‘Yes it’s here. You should have had confirmation before now. I’ll get that reprinted for you.’
My favourite was one that came through a few days ago.
‘When did you post it?’
‘I posted it at the same time as several other letters.’

Star, the little stray cat that ran into my kitchen, went to his new home yesterday. I helped my daughter get everything she needed for him and we then picked him up from my home and took him to hers. He seemed to be right at home there.
He’ll get a lot more attention there – he has already shown us that he likes as much attention as possible!
He’s taken to running up and down the stairs already, and he loves the banisters where he can poke his head through and watch everybody downstairs.
He’s not too keen on his pyramid bed – he’s taken to the living room mat though!
He hasn’t noticed the fish tank yet. That’s going to be interesting.
He’ll have to be kept in for a few days until he gets used to his new home, but I reckon he’ll settle in quickly there.

A work colleague had a particularly nasty individual on the phone a few days ago, who insisted in finishing every sentence with the word ‘woman’. We always give our name to the caller – it’s politeness as well as good service. However, this man wasn’t interested in using my colleagues name as he didn’t wish to speak to a woman!
The conversation went along these lines:
‘Good morning. You’re through to (name of colleague). How can I help you?’ She asked politely.
‘Put a man on the phone, woman. I’m not speaking to you.’ He demanded.
‘We are very busy at the moment and my colleagues are busy on other calls, so how can I help you?’ She asked again, politely.
‘Renew my policy, woman.’ He spat.
My colleague was polite throughout the call. But even when she reminded the customer of her name, he still didn’t use it.
Personally I would not have put up with his rudeness and, let’s face it, his prejudice. We are living in the 21st century and to think that there are people like this in the UK now is unbelievable. What a prat!

The Good Girl
Looks like we have a new addition to the family. A little black cat ran into my kitchen on Wednesday night. Friendly little thing but covered in fleas and starving. Wolfed down three full dishes of food and wanted more. I was bit weary of giving him any more as he might have been sick.
Luckily I’d got some flea stuff so I did him straight away, and de-wormed him the next day. The scratching has taken away most of the fur on his back legs, belly, and the fur is very thin on his back.
My cat is not too happy about this new addition using his litter tray or eating from his dishes! Still there’s not been any major scraps, just a bitt of hissing and growling.
I’ve advertised him on Cats Protection – just in case someone is looking for him. I reckon he’s been on the streets for a while, but has been fed by people. He doesn’t seem to know what toys are and just backs away from them so I don’t think he can hunt. I’m betting that people have fed him bits, feeling sorry for him, but wouldn’t have him in the house because of the fleas.
Took him up the vets on Saturday. Vet said he was in good health apart from being very thin. He is neutured, about 2 years old, but has an allergy to the flea bites.
I’ve kept him in for the last few days. He’s using the litter tray perfectly, and is a real little cutey. If no one claims him, which I don’t think they will, then my daughter will be having him.
