Telemarketing bastards and a gashed mobile

Arghh… I hate all those telemarketers swamping my phone with automated computerised calls!!! Yesterday I received five bloody phone calls from these scums! In fact I accidentally dropped my fucking mobile because of them. Now my JAM contains a gash half an inch long. Fuckers...

According to other clumsy owners at xda-developers HTC will replace the case but it will cost me 50quid! Greedy bastards. Not only that, it has to go to their service center in Dubai! The damage is mainly cosmetic but the plastic part is dangerously cracked. I am going to have to get some strong glue tomorrow to hold it together. Hopefully it can last.

I can’t understand how the case can crack. It fell on a carpeted floor from a height of only two feet. I remember dropping my Sony Ericsson T610 onto hard concrete from five feet and it survived with only scratches. And my old Nokia survived a eight feet drop onto the carpet with zero injuries. Bah, all these Taiwanese products really lack quality.

Btw, congratulations to Liverpool on the win. The real battle however will be persuading the FA and UEFA to allows them to defend the title next season. Which looks pretty unlikely...

Question Time, BBC1, 10.35pm
As France moves to the 'non' vote on the European Constitution referendum, David Dimbleby chairs a studio debate in Paris. Shockingly the elderly are more inclined towards the 'oui' vote. Personally I am for a European reunification but I think a more socially liberal referendum is more suited for Europe.
