Unsolicited ‘Revoo’ from Carphone Warehouse

I’m not clear on whether this is good marketing from the Carphone Warehouse. I just got the following email through from them. Or from Revoo. Or both. I never remember asking Carphone Warehouse to introduce me to Revoo. I never like confusing people. Carphone is a brand I nkow. Revoo, I’ve heard off. But I’ve […]

Mobile Shop staff… You amuse me!

No seriously! Despite how rubbish you can be (note, not all are that rubbish), you have this ability to make me laugh, even when it’s not funny! You see, on Wednesday I took a trip down to my local high street, a busy one at that; in all I would hazard a guess that there […]
