This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

Thanks Mr Catalogue
Me girlfriend a few years back (the future Mrs Jeccy) got a catalogue (not naming, for financial reasons, but it weren't Argos), and they had a local warehouse. She needed a telly as her one blew up, and she got her account ready and bought a half-decent 21 inch telly from this company. I huff this telly to her home, only to find out that the sound was next-to-fucked. So I reload the car, hoist the twatting thing back down to the store and point out the fault. They apologise, and give us a replacement similar-model-telly instead, which worked fine.

A few weeks later, and Mrs Jeccy received a statement asking her to pay for both of the tellys (including the replacement one). Cue one quick phonecall of complaint, and after explaining everything the helpful member of staff credited the mistake off the account.

And the other telly too. She didn't have to pay for neither.

No wonder they went bankrupt a few months later; giving away free returns :)
