    Unsmart meters

    Well my main reason on agreeing to have smart meters fitted was not to save money to be honest it was simply a) so I didn't need to be in when someone came round to read the meter b) or so I didn't have to keep doing my own meter readings and sending it to EDF online c) so my bills would be accurate and I wouldn't keep paying to much and then 9 months later paying peanuts for six months and then find out I owed money and then paid loads more and also I don't want to be one of these old grumpy men that never have change and technology at the end of the day if I want to put a light on or plug in a heater etc I will and no meter would stop me but I am annoyed that EDF fit it and it doesn't work and then all they say is it will work sometime in the future complete waste of space

    Unsmart meters

    So there I was taking this week off from work and planing to do not a lot as I am normally non stop working I get a call from EDF as my tarrif is coming to an end I had a chat then did a price comparison and decided to stay with EDF for another year or so I enquired about smart meters and was told we can come and fit them as we have a cancellation and 2 guys are in the area this afternoon so I agreed all afternoon they were here driving me mad one guy on training and I guy supposedly monitoring what he does god was he boring a real 2018 health and safety moron that lectured me on everything in my house I said I wanted 2 nd generation meters they have fitted 1st generation so if iswap providers in a year's time I have to change meters again after 4 boring hours the meters were done but they didn't connect to there own WiFi and he said they would try to boost the signal from there end but in his experience it never works so I have 2 smart meters that are not very bright so much for progress eh what a waste of a day off

    Where to go on holiday

    I flew into Kuala Lumpur and stayed in town for two nights then to the Berjaya lankawi for 7 nights in a premier rainforest chalet then to tangjang aru in kote Kinabalu and had 14 nights in the Kinabalu wing sea facing with Kinabalu club The Kinabalu club costs a bit more but gives you private concierge /check in / seperate dining etc well worth it if you use all the freebies that come with it there are a few protected islands you can spend the day lazing around / snorkelling over the coral reef and the boat leaves hourly from the hotel go meet the local headhunters etc so much to do day trips to sepilok orangutan sanctuary ooooow you are making me want to go back and I have been twice already

    Work related stress.

    Sprackles what you have to do is step back and take stock of your options I like you am now 60 and have 5to 10 years left in me for work if you are being paid 8k more than the others get your head down and suffer it for another few years or try to find other employment elsewhere that pay the same or more at our age unfortunately pay rises do not come every year unemployment does if we are not careful as for the union best of luck with that in my opinion they are about as good as a hole in a condom in general they do not help the working man anymore

    Increase in violent crime.

    I am not racist in any shape or form but my belief is that the police should be able to stop and search anyone regardless of colour and even without reason nowdays yes we will have a lot of youngsters bleating they are getting picked on but that's the only way to stop it also heavy prison sentence for carrying large knives the innocent might get a bit upset for wasting there time but that's tough saving lives is more important

    pigs in the trough

    well the way i see it is most mps do it because they want to make a difference on all our lives in the country to make it better but after a while they just look after themselves so yes its just a job

    pigs in the trough

    nor would I that's why I don't care if they get cheap dinners they are welcome to whatever they can get just the same as anybody working when i have gone for a job i have always tried to get the best deal for me moneywise and benefit wise i cant see what the difference is between an ordinary person trying to do well for himself and a mp and before anyone speaks up and sais its because the taxpayer pays there wages remember we all elected them

    Honest opinion on the kids and the internet

    I do not think you are out of order but at the age of 8 most kids have mobile phones now or if they do not have them most of there mates have I would let him keep the mobile but get the internet taken off as for indoors you or the ex should be supervising the usage of it try to nip it in the bud now before its to late
