A mere two months, multiple forms, one reminder to the bank manager, and a personal guarantee later, I yesterday received the credit card that I asked for when opening the bank account.
A mere day later, I received the credit card statement showing Iâ€™d been charged the annual fee for the card before Iâ€™d even received it.
A mere phone call, one warning that I was being recorded for â€œtraining porpoisesâ€, two times on hold, and two conversations later, I now have the charge cancelled since, as a â€™startupâ€™ customer, I shouldnâ€™t have been charged it in the first place.
I received the Terms and Conditions for business travel insurance today. Glancing through it, I saw a large paragraph listing the excluded sports.
However, in the paragraph that started â€œtaking part in abseiling, American football, big game huntingâ€¦â€ and ended â€œâ€¦white water rafting or white water canoeing or wrestlingâ€ was the text â€œsport of any kindâ€!!! Why not just put â€œsport of any kindâ€ instead of 16 lines of names and types of sports?
Okay, I am simplifiying things. Also tucked away in that 16-line paragraph of sports is â€œmanual workâ€.
Itâ€™s a good thing that reading T&Cs isnâ€™t classified as a sport (or is it?), otherwise if I did it while travelling and injured myself by falling about laughing, I would not be covered.
