Eveshambles Part 3

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

I phoned Evesham yesterday to find out the progress of the repair on my Evesham laptop. “It’s repaired but it’s not been shipped yet”. Brilliant, it’s round the corner, I’ll go and fetch it. “I don’t think you can do that sir” …

I’ll cut out the disagreement that ensued, you can fill in the blanks, but we left it with the young lady emailing Micro Nano (the repairers) to ask if I could pick it up. Still no phone call today from Eveshambles but Mrs Sane rang to say it had arrived and she’d tried it and the keyboard works.

Brilliant – I’ve got loads to do that I’ve been waiting on my laptop for and I’ve been asked to write an article for a newspaper sometime between now and … erm, now! Small problem – the wireless card on the new motherboard they’ve allegedly put in my laptop is shit and the signal strength is so low that I gave up trying to open the Microsoft Update website after about 30 minutes.

    I could never understand the affection some people have towards laptops. To my opinion laptop is the most crappy thing mankind has developed (after German beer of course).

    Can i ask you something Stuart, who gives toss about your laptop? Also, why do you refer to yourself as Mr Sane and Wonko all the time. It is jarring, you are starting to sound like that self obsesed pompous prick Guido Falkes, or should i say Paul de Laire Staines. Stop with the whole third person descriptions of things, wonko did this, Mr Sane did that. I mean for F**ks sake, just say i did this, i did that, instead of shoving your head up your arse and saying Wonko this Mr Sane that. And if you must talk in the third person, at least use your real name instead of some stupid retarded persona.

    Plenty of people give a toss about it, especially Eveshambles.

    I don’t talk in the third person.

    Ok, tell me how many people actually give a flying f**k.

    Also, you do talk in the third person fairly regurarly. Just look at your posts. On occasion you say Mr Sane did this, Wonko did that.

    Fine, if you are going to talk in the 3rd person, i don’t realy care if you sound like a pretentious slef absorbed fool, which you aren’t, but at least use your actual name, instead of copying that dick guido/Paul de Laire Staines.

    Calum, how I write my blog is my concern. I have been writing in character as wonkotsane for about 6 years now in various places. If you don’t like how I write, don’t read it.

    To be honest Stuart i was seriously considering not bothering to read this blog anymore. Recentley it seems to have got a bit rubbish. No offense. Just you seem to miss stories and stuff. You have yet to say anything on no CPS investigation into cash for peerages, nor on the explusion of Russian and British diplomats etc…

    So i have considered not bothering to read this blog, but then i thought that if i did that i ruin your and the raving nutters who often read your blogs fun. I mean, you’d miss me if i were to go wouldn’t you. If it weren’t for me disagreeing with you and other readers then this blog would just be one big communial wankfest, with you all just agreeing with eachother. It would just be a load of nodding heads, how boring.

    If I was you I would try and make sure you get your laptop back before the end of the month as latest rumour is that the company will be going into Liquidation at the end of the month, at the same time, all employers think that they will not have a job come 1st August.
