Can’t Speak English. Really?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted due to lots of things going on. Lots of things happening – mostly good.

Work is very busy at the moment. If we’re lucky we get chance to breathe.

A young chap called me today on behalf of his mom. I told him I needed her permission to discuss the details, to which he replied: ‘You can’t speak to her. She doesn’t speak English.’

I said I still needed her permission. He asked me what I wanted to say to her so I explained I just needed her permission to discuss information with him. He repeated all this to his mother in their own language. She then came on the phone and answered my request. All well and good.

The discussion I had with the young chap centred around the boiler. I asked if it had been serviced every year.

‘I don’t know.’ He replied.

‘Can you ask your mom?’

‘Mom. Has the boiler been serviced every year?’ He asked her in English!

I wonder if he had forgotten that she doesn’t speak English!

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

The British people have spoken! We have shown the country that we have more power than the idiots in the big buildings. This is as important as the vote to leave.

We have said: ‘OUR MONEY IS FOR US’ And everybody needs to take note.

It’s interesting to see the way various areas have voted. Scotland, the coastal areas of Wales and border towns of Northern Ireland wanted to remain. Whereas the midlands and other built up towns wanted out. The built up areas are more industrialised and have many more immigrants.

Don’t get me wrong here. I have no problem with people coming to the UK to work or study. It’s those who wish to live off benefits that get my goat. Those of us who live in the industrial centres are all to used to this.

My neighbour has just been made redundant. He was born and brought up in the UK and has worked all his life. He can’t get full dole as he has redundancy pay. The dole office are making him keep receipts to show them what his redundancy pay has been used for. They want to make sure he hasn’t put it into a secret bank account or used it for a nice holiday.

Some people are on £200 per week while not working. And they’re not British. They haven’t put anything into this country.

How is this fair?

Regardless of colour of skin or religion followed, if you have worked in this country and contributed to society then you should come before others.

If our government had put it’s own people first then this vote may well have been different.

Car Insurance Tips

I recently had to buy car insurance and sat for a few hours scouring the web for the cheapest. After finding the cheapest I then began to get quotes including family members as named drivers. I found that there were a few factors that influenced the price, such as: a) when you want it to start; b) occupation; c)other cars. This is in addition to usual things like no claims discount.

a) Starting the cover at a later date lowered the cost for me. So try getting a quote a few weeks before you need it to see if it works out cheaper.

b) Find your occupation but try different words. My job is in customer service and sales and the words advisor, representative, officer, and administrator, all apply to the job I do, but each one affected the price of the car insurance. So it’s worth checking under your own job description if there are several different words you could use.

c)When adding family members to my insurance the question was asked as to whether they had their own cars and if they were named drivers on other insurance. The two people I wanted to add on both have their own cars and are also named drivers on each others. However, I was not able to tick yes for both options on the application, the answer required was one or the other. So I tried it with both. Using the named drivers option worked out cheaper.

This may not apply to all car insurance providers but it’s worth you spending some extra time trying different things. I managed to save £400 on the original quote. That’s not bad for a couple of hours work.
