It's only the dark side depending on how you look at things. I for example think the BBC is much darkerWink

One question..When placing bread in toaster to make said toast....how do you stop the eggs falling off and making a mess of the inside of toaster?  Undecided

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: Ive done somthing really bad........

It's hard to judge "satisfaction" results. I mean unless it's based solely on customers that had something go wrong and how it was handled it has to be mostly meaningless.

You only have to look on these forums to see how plusnet handles things. Or should that be mishandles.

Yes of course it's probably only a small fraction, and the rest of us are happy, but when you are just buying a service yes you should be.

What people really want to know is when things go wrong will every effort be made to put things right as soon as possible or will it be, what seems to often happen here, that it's only the customer that's putting in every effort.

Do NOT try this....   I think this idea was spread on YouTube and twit face,.... as a way to do "Welsh Rarebit" in a toaster....  a lady tried it.... and burnt her house down, cos it set fire to itself, and then the whole house was reduced to a burnt out shell...

Or if you absolutely must try it, do it outdoors away from the house, keeping a dry or CO2 fire extinguisher to hand... Grin

Not a serious response?...Oh flip, I'll stand the toaster back up then. Embarrassed
