I want to upgrade my handset. I am SO bored with my mobile phone at the moment, and want something new and fresh and fabulous. So, being impatient, I phoned my network provider a couple of weeks ago to check when I can upgrade, for how much, etc. And was told I could upgrade for £xx.xx on March 9th (today).
Excellent, thought I, I can afford that... so this morning, on the phone to the my network provider was I. (Sounding like Yoda there...)
"Good morning, yes, I was told I can upgrade my phone today for £xx.xx and would like to go ahead and do it."
"Oh, no, it's £yy.yy not £xx.xx... sorry." (Yes, £yy.yy is MORE expensive, of course).
"So why was I told the price of £xx.xx?"
"I don't know, but it's £yy.yy not £xx.xx."
B A S T A R D !
(I didn't shout that, but screamed it in my head). Why do I get told one thing one day, then something else another?! It happens so often with all sorts of companies...it's like they're making things up as they go along. One source of information should equal one actual piece of information - but no, one source can in fact equal loads of different information and no one knowing what the last person said. So now I have to think to myself, how badly do I want to upgrade? Do I wait for the actual date of the £xx.xx price (1st April) or do I bite the bullet and upgrade now?
Let's see how mature I can be and wait and be patient...
