  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.

    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then

    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.

    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

At last ! .. ‘Human contact’.

Posted by Big John on February 2, 2018

I’ve just had a very strange experience and feel that I just stepped back in time because I telephoned a service company to arrange for an engineer to call to carry out a repair to my TV satellite system, and to my amazement I found myself speaking to a very helpful young lady. Yes, a real live person, and this within only a few seconds of picking up the ‘phone to make the call !

How did this happen ? … There was NO .. “Press one for this” .. “Press two for that” .. “Please hold, your call is important to us” .. “You are number Gawd knows how many in a queue” .. “Thank you for waiting”  .. “All our agents are busy, so please piss off to our website for help” .. “Good afternoon my name is Ranjit. Oops ! .. Sorry .. William .. How may I be helping you today?” .. and ..  “Oh, and by the way, if you do get through, we will record your conversation for training purposes”.. “In the meantime, here is some crap music for you to listen to until you fall into a trance or …

… decide to hang up !.
