I normally steer clear of naming and shaming companies via my cartoons and an associated grumpy post, but I’ve now done so twice in a week. But seeing as I’m still sitting in a freezing* cold house with no heat or electricity being sued is not the first thing on my mind. I think I will try to stick to naming and shaming only one company per week from now on.
Anyway, tomorrow I am expecting the fifth visit from a British Gas engineer in a week. Every time there is some new part or new machine that is required to do the job, and every time a different engineer comes so that he (and they are all male) does not know what the previous one has done. In the meantime we cannot get the electricity fixed until we are sure that the boiler is not going to do any more leaking. As a result my entire life and business is being powered by the electricity socket next to the cooker and lots of extension leads, and I am staying elsewhere overnight as I have no fridge and no hot water (as far as I know – one can never be sure).
*Exaggeration. But 75% of British Gas engineers work with the front door open, so it has been a bit cold.
