Omissions and Clarifications

Friday, February 3rd, 2006

I sat on yesterday’s blog for over 24 hours before deciding to post it. On the plus side they have transferred my old number to my new phone now. They combined the balance for both phones too which I didn’t ask them to do. Reading my post from 1st February I forgot to say that […]

Don't Call Us…
