I agree with your sentiment. Your TV rental? Radio Rental, Granada TV rental... However Your phone line and instrument. GPO and nothing else, god forbid! I speak as an ex GPO/ Post Office Telecommunications/ BT/ Openreach guy. And there's still shitty alluminum cable under the street of Manchester UK as I trundle my shopping trolley around. lol.
OK. I'm no lawyer but let's put this in a true perspective.
A) I buy an iphone. Not on contract. It's my property. I should surely be within my rights to seek repair from any source.
B) I buy a tin of paint. Not on a contract. I't my property. I can paint my living room walls bright pink with it.
It's MY phone and my paint.
Time that we had a big discussion about this.
In the UK there are certain scenarios that allow the breaking of a the sound barrier by military aircraft. This happened recently when a passenger jet lost comms. ATC scrambled the RAF, a number of claims have been made, including costs to replace glass panels in a greenhouse a patio window and a broken chandelier. I lived in the Lake District where RAF pilots carried out their training... Farmers where entitled to compensation for sheep who keeled over and died because of the shock, apparently sheep don't do well with surprises.
As a Lancastrian who left high school with no qualifications or any real direction I'm deeply indebted to Lancaster University for their outreach classes that made me who I am.
The university gave me the confidence to reply to you and suggest you are blindingly wrong.
For your record, the bars are open every day. Seek and you shall find.
Totally correct. In my youth I experimented with this over a distance of a mile or so. Wooden fence posts and wire (not barbed in this case) you just need to follow the fence wire and ensure continuity of the circuit, it was in a field, beware of farmer and bull if you want to try this out. We then ditched this plan and strung a single wire between a number of lamposts using an earth return method. A bit of a hum on the line bt as 14 year olds I could chat free of charge to my mate under the bedsheets.
I assume the only one upvote is your own. Though please could you explain who put reflective panels on the lunar surface that are still used today for accurate earth to moon distance calc? I'm terribly sorry but I have to tell you that the it wasn't the man in the moon...
At 16 I left school with few qualifications. My first job was as a "key boy" in a large amusement arcade in the seaside town of Morecambe. 80 hours and £20 a week.
An elderly. lonely, lady visited the arcade every day from 1100 till around 3.00 in the afternoon, whatever the weather.
Her name was Annie, we called her "banging" Annie, yes I was 16 and regret the terminology now.
Annie used to play the pushers, money in the top, cascades to the pusher, like a waterfall, and supposed to fall off the end into Annie's hands.
Annie was clever, well so she thought, she had a rather big handbag which she attempted to use as a battering ram on the side of the cascade, little known to her was the "tilt" switch, a pendulum surrounded by a ring. Pendulum touches ring caused by Annie's handbag and the money on the edge of Annie's grip is diverted into the.....cashbox...the alarm rang and we carried on as normal.
Annie we never told you off, even when you hated the new number one top 40 song we played over the "Tannoy! , Hotel California, Great days!
Dedicated to "Banging" Annie. RIP
Not going to happen in the UK, As already stated we don't get paid for lunch breaks. Though we must take them....some employers insist on this, other don't. We don't get financially penalised for lunch breaks. I worked for BT, for sins committed in a previous life, they were really hot on ensuring lunch break, mind you, as a field service guy we had brews at every job ("brews" for our USA friends = coffee breaks :)
As for lawyers fees, as its a class action, divided the costs between each individual claimant, would sit well with most people,
Finally, I use some of Tyco's gear. I'm really surprised and disappointed with their attitude on this.
