    So tomorrow I have to ring, in no particular order, GPs surgery, Welsh Water, HM Revenue & Customs, Virgin, O2 & Sky and maybe Vodafone!

    So who do we think will be the most useless? I'm expecting HM Revenue & Customs to be terrible and Virgin as well.

    I think I'm going to be on the phone all day! :(

    Partially depends on the nature of each call, but I'll be plumping for Sky as the most useless.

    Vodafone by a country mile. Prepare to be told your perception of how to use a mobile phone is wrong and everything they say is the bible. :p

    Virgin had an awesome scottish guy last time I called. Noted my problem and set up an appointment for an engineer to come round. AND he said the appointment will automatically get cancelled if the problem gets fixed at their end. It did get fixed at their end after a few hours:).

    Sky are bloody awful, not only does it take an age to get answered, the phone monkeys are utterly powerless and anything significant normally requires you to write/e-mail in anyway.

    Virgin for the uni internet, O2 about new home internet, Sky about sorting out SkyHD, Vodafone about my mobile.
