Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Ha, thanks Mr Harvey - have never been far away, although genuinely alarmed to learn the fact I last said something two and a half years ago... not sure where that time went.

Re: What to do when a shop forgets to charge you?

I've opted for a middle-of-the-road "What do you mean? I have a receipt! Did your cashier make a mistake? Of course I realise I must pay, but I hope you appreciate I didn't budget for this, and I'm rather taken aback by your mention of legal action. Could you confirm how much you want me to pay exac...

Re: London Oxford Airport?

As Metropol's resident Southender, I agree it seems odd for there to be a London Southend Airport, especially when the place consists of nothing but some people who took a wrong turning... but I think I'm right in saying that it was actually London's third airport for some time. Luton obviously took...

Re: What to do when a shop forgets to charge you?

Mr Scott - why didn't I think of that? I did indeed get a receipt but interestingly it doesn't have the auth details. After the exchange info it says:

Total: 152.29
Total From Customer Today: 152.29
Visa Debit Card - FE 152.29

Re: What to do when a shop forgets to charge you?

The main question, I'd think (given that there's no doubt that you haven't paid) is whether they can prove you (both "a person" and also "you, DAS, as opposed to some other bod who walked in" received the money. They probably can, so you should pay up. And you'll get a nice warm glow from knowing i...

Re: What to do when a shop forgets to charge you?

What credit rating though? They have my name and contact details, and I appreciate that address data forms part of a credit rating, but no credit account was used. Had I walked in off the street instead of reseve the cash online, they wouldn't have been able to contact me.

What to do when a shop forgets to charge you?

Say you go into a travel agent to buy £150 worth of Turkish Lira. Having reserved the cash online, you go into the branch, use your debit card, have a nice chat with the cashier then you exit the shop with your money. You enjoy a week in Turkey, come back home to continue with your life, then receiv...

Re: It's All In The Name

It's significantly more complex and labyrinthine if you choose to take it back to the beginnings of pay cable TV in the UK, for me that'd be 1995. So, for me we'd be looking at: Jones Cable Network (lasted no time, gone before the roads were dug up, wish I had the half hour promo tape still) => Bel...
