MY BLOG - AN OLD MAN HAVING A MOAN ;-(

Before we continue, a personal statement

One of the pleasures having a personal web site is that I can print what I like and provided it is not libellous nobody can stop me. Now please don't expect to read lies here but there are personalities who consider themselves beyond criticism, they make statements and some people feel unable to say anything against them. This is not me - I say it as I see it, always have, always will!

Disabled? Then don't use your new washing machine - or electric fan without supervision!

 When we bought a new Hotpoint washing machine earlier this month I read the instructions (as you do) and noticed a rather odd paragraph. To summarise it said "This appliance may not be used by in the rain or by children (obvious) or by persons with "reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities...if they are not supervised." That means that the disabled are not allowed to wash their clothes without having someone to first check their smalls!

Today I bought a new £10 desk fan from Sainsbury's. Guess what? Yes, you guessed it the same sort of paragraph on the instructions which this time said that people over 8 years old and the disabled must first be given supervision and instruction.

So I wonder, is it legal to impose terms that deny lone washing and cooling facilities to the disabled in the U.K.?

Who thought these terms up and was it the result of a disabled person putting in too much Daz?

What do others think?
 

IS THIS FAIR TRADING?

Get my complaint? 10 Litres of diesel at £1.39.9 a litre should total £13.99 NOT £14.00

I bought some fuel in Haywards Heath today and just happened to stop filling at exactly 10 litres. Imagine my indignation when I was charged not £13.99 but £14.00! The garage would hear nothing of my complaints just saying that their pumps are regularly checked. In fact I rather think that did not understand my complaint. Maths is a dark art to many people these days and when I said "just move the decimal point" I got a blank stare.

Is this fair? After all I had not yet purchased £14.00 of fuel so surely they are overcharging?

What do you think?
