Barclays Bank plc are incompetent fucks

(viewed 15563 times)
Four years ago, I thought I closed my Barclays student account (that's what they told me I'd done), but it turns out I hadn't. And for the past 18 months, the Student Loan Company have been removing money from it without my knowledge. Obviously, it didn't have any money in it, so Barclays arranged (without my knowledge or consent) £1400 worth of overdraft, at 15%.

'course, even though they made the mistake not me, I still have to pay and they won't make any effort to help me with that either.


This has got to be the best day of 2006.

trilogy

(viewed 1580 times)
Once I've got through these, and re-read Chapter House, I shall be perfectly placed to read my lovely hardback copy of Hunters of Dune (that's Dune 7!). Must finish Quicksilver first though (and put off Confusion/System of the World a bit more)

I wish reading didn't hurt me so much. I want a ePaper-screened reader (like this one) that I don't have to hold open, and some eBooks to put on it, but they're stupidly expensive at the moment...

being the best thing about American (French's) mustard. Mustard indeed. If it doesn't make my eyes bleed, it's just yellow salad cream*... :)


* a british food atrocity - like mayonaise, but with more evil in. I love it.
