    They will always be in the house even if you can't see them. I will kill these on sight as they can and do bite. I have been bitten on 3 occasions although I have never actually seen them each time...

    Re: Trademe purchases

    Surely if you were reimbursed by the courier company, you would have also claimed the fees paid to Trademe from the courier company as the total amount of loss? If you were given a credit, then you...

    Re: vodafone wireless broadband

    I've told Spark to stop pestering me to do this. I want fibre as my next upgrade, not an interim wireless. I also don't think 4G covers my area of town.
    I don't get any calls from them now.

    Re: Full mailbox?

    If you hover the mouse over the link, the actual URL can be seen and is usually nothing to do with your email provider. These emails were common years ago but I haven't had one for a long time.

    Re: Home phone - land line

    Only have one because we can't get fibre in our street so can't have a naked broadband deal costing less than the current deal which includes landline.
