Re: Not just business

I've been promoted to silver badge 4 times, then I just clear my account and start from square 1 because there's nowhere else to go and anyway I look back at my posts and think "what an idiot". So currently I have no standing.

But some time ago a salesman tried to tell me that our house voltage was too high and we needed a regulator to stop our solar panel inverter being damaged, and I had the pleasure of stopping him right there, going and getting the delegate list for an EU harmonisation meeting and saying, "look, that's me. We were discussing mains voltage upper and lower limits. My mains voltage is within tolerance. Are you telling me the inverter isn't fit for purpose?"
