I enquire about a warranty on the unit but the Director says that's unlikey.

"How come?" I ask

"We bought that one second hand off ebay"

YOU WOULD THINK...that, having made it to Directorship, the bloke might have learned something along the way...like the old adages "you get what you pay for", or "nothing lasts forever" or, "there must be a reason they're selling this". You would be sadly mistaken.

Apparently, from the stories above, Directors are a special breed, having been placed (by God?) in positions of responsibility without having been supplied with the tools required to do the job.
