full of shit
Today I...

...had a job interview which I thought went very well. It's back at the Grant Museum, as a Learning Assistant, 2 days a week for 6 months. Not the best timing for starting a new job, but after a lot of contemplation I decided the experience opportunity was too good not to apply. Consequences of this decision yet to come, but I did rock the interview (I think)

...bought a new phone to replace the one left at the cinema last Tuesday. I had been pay-as-you-go, as I hardly used it, but this time I've gone with Three, because the unlimited Skype offer was too good to me to pass up. (Hint: add me to Skype! Guess my username and win a me.) The phone is a Sony Ericsson C510, and I've told my desktop to call her Oracle.

But you and I know her real name.

...had a chat with a Natwest bank lady who, when I called into the bank to pick up my account details to sign the contract, insisted on telling me why I should have their insurance, not the Geek Squad package that Carhouse Warehouse provided. Not going with her has already turned out to be a good plan, because in the wasted rest of the afternoon spent trying to install Skype on my new phone, these guys proved themselves capable, educated, friendly and willing to help.

Three's helpline, on the other hand, is staffed by people reading from a checklist who haven't the slightest idea. And it never occurred to them to do what I finally did, and check Skype's list of compatible handsets for a Sony Ericsson C510.


Fortunately, Carhouse Warehouse promised me that I could have a handset with Skype preinstalled if I did have this problem, so I'll just have to go in tomorrow and call them on it.

But seriously, no one thought to check?

*smacks head* Duh! I was trying to be clever with my tweeted suggestion, and went and missed the perfect one. =)

Hope the news from the interview is A++.

Aw, that's okay. There will be other times. x
