Everyday tales of a most dynamic and inspired teacher, a once dedicated and valiant nurturer of England's er...finest young minds and talents, now a content economic migrant slumming it in the sun of the Gulf wondering why he ever bothered...but now back again!

Three Mobile's can't do culture
Now, it's not often I need to moan, mither, whine and foam... well, actually I do, but have tried to keep things limited to the sunny world of education. However, while everyone was loving up in a warm self-congratulatory way over the summer, I sloped away while no one was looking from smiley, happy, England. Yep, I am contentedly plying my trade overseas once again avoiding, among other things, the worst of slimebag Gove down to the idiot Northern Nazi fool of a HoD and the obligation to mark in green lest we hurt some over sensitive mummy's darling's feelings.
Anyway the last left-over moan from home is that about bloody mobiles. It was a world into which I was relatively late entering. My needs were always simple text, and being a bloke minimal speech so I was happy to be a humble 2G pay as you go drone. It worked perfectly well while on my previous stretches abroad not least as there was usually only one company and one easily digestible tariff. How lovely. On return a few years back the horrors of competitive capitalism and leaps of technology dragged me blinkingly and happily into 3G world. I discovered a whole new world of things I didn't know I needed or wanted but the clincher is that it ended up being cheaper than PAYG, so the brave new 3G world was for me. Which company? Well, in a haphazard unthought through way I ended up with useless fucking Three Mobile. Why? A nice bloke in the shop sold me a contract I wasn't really looking for while idling away some time waiting for a friend. I also naively thought it would be good to break away from the iron embrace of bloody Tesco.
Thinking I would never have to deal with the incompetent scammers again, I am now receiving mail saying I owe them for a contract that is long terminated - how fucking useless can you be Three Mobile ?
