I cancelled my gym membership a while ago
giving the required 1 month notice but I miscalculated the date of the direct debit so actually canceled that before I should have. I assume they wrote to me about it but because I'd moved flat never heard anything from them about it, so had no idea I actually owed them £40-odd.

About 2 years later I got a obscure text message with a number to call which I duly did. Turns out it was a leg-breakers debt-collection agency who had had the debt passed to them which had now increased to over £100 with "admin fees".

Unfortunately for them, I had never given permission for my gym to text me so I told them they had no right passing my number on to the debt agency. So having liberally quoted the Data Protection Act and the Electronic Communications Act, I got a fulsome apology from both parties and the debt written off.

Technically though, as I was a customer of the gym, they were fully entitled to try to contact me using this method to reclaim their money. Thankfully, everyone is so scared of the DPA now, you can use it to get away with almost anything.

Voice-dial is bad
Got a new phone recently & decided to activate the voice-dial feature for a few people I call most often.

Was tugging one off whilst thinking about a girl I'd been seeing on & off for a while and towards the end managed to call out her name a couple of times. Unfortunately my mobile was next to her bed & decided to take my strangled cries as a command to dial...

Luckily she was away from her phone & just got a missed call with an incoherent message.

Love Bomb Baby - the Tigertailz
A welsh glam rock band of truely tragic proportions. I bought their second album after seeing them on the ITV Chart Show in the Rock chart when I was about 15 - watermelon knows what I was thinking most of my other purchases at the time were more sensible, Stone Roses, JAMC etc but hey, at least they're not as bad as the Stereophonics...

See them in all their glory : www.fortunecity.com/tinpan/kurtwood/938/index.htm
