#440151 Driving Test!

Posted by Turvey on 29 December 2014 - 12:02 PM

Listen to your instructor, he/she has more experience getting folk through their test ;) 


But remember that your instructor teaches you to pass your test, but you only learn to drive AFTER you've passed. Well that's what my instructor told me    :)

Focus passed MOT today :)

Needed 2 front bushes, brake pads and a track rod end but overall not too bad for a 10 year old car :)

#433891 E-Bay Seller Doing My Head In!!!!!!

Posted by Turvey on 03 December 2014 - 08:17 PM

EBay have pretty much no way of getting the money other than courting them over it. Doubtful they'll do it to be honest, probably just sell the debt to a 3rd party to try and collect


Hopefully they'll get a debt collector who's favourite tool is a baseball bat!


Anyway, today is the 6th day and guess what?



































FULL REFUND IN PAYPAL ACCOUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)



Well I say full, we're about a tenner in return postage down but all in all not too bad a result. Lesson learnt. Move on.

Yeah, you say that! I can just imagine some young Vauxhall driving thug clinging on for dear life whilst being taken down the nick for 'questioning'! :)

#429135 E-Bay Seller Doing My Head In!!!!!!

Posted by Turvey on 17 November 2014 - 05:54 PM

Does that mean if the replacement one is faulty within 28 days the will refund?


Not sure  :unsure:  but we're not willing to find out. A refund was asked for the first time it went wrong, after a week, so a refund we want!  ;)


Our reply to the seller.



Your message to the seller:
"Hello. The item you have sold me is faulty. The last time it was repaired it worked for 24 hours and broke again. I cannot be expected to keep returning this item to you every week for repair, this is not acceptable. I would like a full refund of £151.25 plus return postage. Please could we get the refund organised before 21 November as requested by the ebay support team. As soon as you can confirm that you will refund for the item I can get the phone posted back to you. You cannot refuse to refund a broken item just because it is more than 28 days since I bought it. Ebay have told me they will contact me on the 21 November to see if the refund has been arranged, if it has not they will step in again to help me."

#427832 E-Bay Seller Doing My Head In!!!!!!

Posted by Turvey on 12 November 2014 - 05:50 PM

Arghhh! Where do I start? 


Oldest son(13) saved up his pocket-money etc  got us to purchase an iPhone 4 off evil-Bay for him from a seller with, seemingly, a good large feedback, on the 29th of August.


Phone worked for a couple of weeks but then the Wi-fi button 'greyed out' ie couldn't connect to wi-fi. We contacted them, asking to return it for a refund.Their response was, to me, a load of gobbledegook but they recomended watching a youtube video    and follow the steps it contained. We did this and it did work......for a week!


This time they said send it back for an inspection, it was returned to us, working. but by the 21st of October it went faulty again! 


We again messaged them asking for it to be returned for a full refund. Remember this would be the 2nd time we've returned it and are now £5.00s worth of postage down.


There then followed a few messages back and forth with us asking for confirmation that we would get a full refund including 2 lots of postage, which I could copy and paste if anyone is really bothered but don't really expect you to.


Anyway we sent it back with a request for a full refund at the begining of last week. In the post today was.........the 'fixed' phone!!!!!!!


So the question is, after this long rambling rant, what do we do now?


A) Keep and use the phone until it, undoubtably, breaks again and return it again?


B ) Contact the seller demanding a refund?


C) Open a case against them with e-Bay and/or Paypal?


or D) Any other course of action that I'm not aware of?


If anyone's interested the sellers are http://www.ebay.co.u..._bargain_corner


Would I buy again? I think you'll know my response! 


This incident has strengthened my views on 2 things. 


1) Don't buy anything over 20 quid on eBay from anyone you don't know or have heard of.


2) (CR)Apple products are OK until they don't work! If it were up to me I wouldn't allow another one in the house  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:



#426021 Zombies In Our House!!!

Posted by Turvey on 06 November 2014 - 07:31 PM

Yep, projector hooked up to a laptop throwing it onto greaseproof/baking paper stuck to the inside of the window  :)


Here's a couple of clips from a couple of years ago at our old house. We've just moved recently and most of my 'mucking about with' stuff is in storage just now so I could only do one window with no sound  :(



I had an iPod docking station sitting on the ground outside the window hooked up for the sound effects.


And keeping an eye on things...



If you Google 'Hallowindow' you'll find a lot of stuff about doing it  ;)
