About me

I don’t remember that…?


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 13 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 13 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Flicking through the Tesco Photobook I ordered of my elective in Canada, which arrived this morning, I note that many of the scenes are unfamiliar. All of them, in fact. The pictures are largely of Alie’s 90th birthday – or at least, I think they are. It’s hard to tell, because the text is in German… And the picutres, apparently, are set in Germany. The cover was right, the inside wasn’t mine. Tesco assure me they’ll sort it. We’ll see.

I thought that the fact that it was from Tesco would have immediately connoted the fact that it’ll be trash or the wrong one altogether.

That seems a little harsh… is there a story behind your dislike?

Actually, they’ve done a pretty good job of sorting it out, and were most apologetic – which is better than most companies of Tesco’s size.

Well, I have a Tesco mobile. It’s effectively a cobranded O2 thing, and Tesco have zilch online support, their phone support is patronising and costs 5p a minute, and normally leaves you with a robot. And their marketing texts just won’t stop, even though I’ve phoned, Emailed and written to them.

I'm not taking comments on my blog any more, so I'm afraid the opportunity to add to this discussion has passed.
