My Latest Twitter Updates

  • And now the disaster of making yourself understood to overseas call centre operators begins. Shame on you, Telstra, a major efficiency fail. #
  • I've spoken to a very helpful woman who understood the implications of what I was telling her. She transferred me… (2) #
  • … To dept that handles interruptions and damage to services but this fellow can only read his script to me. Now on hold. #
  • Now being transferred to the "special team" dealing with what they probably call my "event"… #
  • The third person has now redirected my landline to my mobile – a free service to flood-affected subscribers. But the Internet? Who knows… #
  • Now I'm told only Sales and Billing can fix my problem (!) so I'm waiting to be transferred back to where I rang in the first place… #
  • I'm transferring you now,she tells me. Someone says hello, a dial tone interrupts her and the call terminates. I'm asked to rate them… #
  • If only Beazley had listened to Keating and got this right years ago… #
  • "At Telstra we really care about you think…" #
  • @BillfromBendigo this isn't an education, this is just a farce… #
  • Now talking to Home Phone operator. She says Bigpond will send me here anyway because an Internet change is linked to the landline number… #
  • You can't seem to book ahead for a new address without them disconnecting… #
  • So now my phone and Internet are to be transferred on the appointed day but I still need Bigpond to install a new socket for me… #
  • The last operator, stationed on the Gold Coast, was very helpful but I still need to call back to Bigpond and Foxtel… #
  • In other words, they want you to bundle your services and have single billing but they can only handle these services separately. #
  • I'm not a Telstra basher – have always found them efficient and reliable – but this waste of an hour is outrageous. #
  • @BillfromBendigo You must be joking. Everyone around here has had nothing but trouble with wireless during this situation. #
  • @eithniu Good. Should I say "shit happens" so @murpharoo can call me "scatological"? #
  • @murpharoo @eithniu I'm afraid I say it very frequently… but rarely on Twitter. I'm not uncouth, you know. #
  • Mr Pyne's cheek must be very sore from having that tongue of his planted so firmly in it. #
  • @Drag0nista @djackmanson @janetribune @gibbot5000 @juzzytribune The GG does what a good GG should always do: what he's bloody told. #
  • @Drag0nista @djackmanson @janetribune @gibbot5000 @juzzytribune That too… A good GG should also be totally anonymous. #
  • @seamus_polsci No. The GG acts on the advice of the PM and the Executive Council. Any self-respecting PM would sack a GG who did not. #
  • I wonder how long a home-recorded DVD-R can survive immersed in water? #
  • And this next retweet is why I don't miss the non-stop talk-under-water approach to political discussion… #
  • @LewStoddart Meaning? #
  • @r_marce Don't tempt me with a slow ball like that… #
  • This might be the right time to ask if anyone in Melbourne could assist me to catalogue the waterlogged books. Couple hours work. #
  • Method: I read name of book, author, price if recorded – you take dictation, preferably on laptop. Can provide dry laptop. #
  • @r_marce Actually, Bob Ellicott did just that in 1975. Kerr asked, "it's bullshit, isn't it?" #
  • @LewStoddart Excellent. I'm not in a position to test yet but hope you're right. thanks. #
  • I cannot believe it. My secondary school English notes survived. http://twitpic.com/3y8mfv #
  • That essay on The Public Corporation is a bit soggy though. http://twitpic.com/3y8njg #
  • @iBleeter @John_Hanna Thanks for that. Many are too old for barcodes but will get app and see how I go. #
  • @benmcginnes Flexible, anytime, but was thinking Sat or Sun afternoon. #
  • @decobroad That's not hoarding! That's preserving vital historical records… #
