Some long while ago, I introduced someone to F9 and so get a my-referral bung of £2 per month.

The guy pays his bill annually and somehow the allocation of bungs got out of step with his billing anniversary. i.e. He pays in November but I got 12 months worth of bungs starting in June last year.

I noticed the other day that the bungs had stopped and raised ticket 13836883

The first response was....

Quote
Dear Customer,
your referrals last annual payment generated 12 referral credits of £2, these were applied to your account from June 2003 and hence why these have run out before the referrals next invoice is due.
Kind Regards, .....


So I asked (on the ticket)

Quote
Will I then get another 12 months worth of £2 credits when the bill is next paid?


Here's what came back....

Quote
Dear Customer,

Yes account which are billing annual will generated them over the year then be applied at the end once the account has been billed.

Regards,


Can someone please take a look at that sentence, parse it and translate it into something approximating English for me. It makes no sense at all.

The first one wasn't exactly clear, either. You did well to make something of it. Can't say I follow what the person's on about.

Although I'm not allowed to reveal the agents name, I can confirm that, surprisingly, it's not "Yoda".

My hope is that Ian or Josh will pick this up and get it translated for me.

Word that are wrongly using am likely to confusing the customs maybe so that it goes away and not again asking.

I'm pretty sure it's his nose.

Unless he's a real clever dick :lol:

I've had another reply on the ticket. Still not clear...

Dear Customer

The answer to your question is yes when the annual contract is paid up we will remove the credit.

Regards, ...


Now, what the heck does "Remove the credit" mean do you think?

Sounds to me like "take away any credit you had" on the other hand, at a bit of a stretch, it coud mean "remove the amount of the credit from the amount we bill you"

Where's the campaign for clear English when you need it?

well, if a laughings you can't haves a sad things it are for the world.

I almost feel sorry for the guy whose response kicked this all off. Almost but not quite. I really hope that his colleagues point and laugh on a regular basis. If that's what his writing is like all the time then he needs a different job or some education.

Your ears are burning because you are typing with your nose with a cup of hot coffee beside the keyboard.

Note to Ivan.... SEE! I told you it was his nose!
