I just received a call from our hardware suppliers.

[Previously on Stargate]
One of the Site Bods wants a new laptop so I said I would organise it.
However...It turns out that the regular suppliers only have W8 machines will charge about £50 more for it than previously (even though W8 is cheaper!).
I complain and said that there is no way we are having an 8 in this company and that if they want a sale they better jolly well obtain a 7 and get it to us pronto or there will be a word or two said, and probably a damn good thrashing.

So, returning to the phone call.
"We have been searching around and managed to get a W7 machine for you, it will be there by about 4.00pm today.
Sorry for that but everyone is trying to sell the new stuff via the trade, the old stuff is just being levered out the back doors.
I have a friend who got hold of one so don't worry, but any future machines will be 8's"
No they elephanting won't be!
Whatever happened to "Customer is King?"

If they want our money they should damn well do as they are told.
</righteous indignation>
I will never again mention that I was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel. Dalek Dave
