And British Gas rang us all over the weekend looking for "Mr Conway". Every time they rang I told them it was a wrong number - and yet they rang the same number again! At least 3 times that I know of, and possibly they got the answerphone a few more times. How difficult is it for people to understand that they have a wrong number? Meanwhile, poor Mr Conway has no heating or hot water while they faff.
As a result of this, we have a new outgoing message on our answerphone which states "We are not Colonel Bob Stewart, we are not Mr Conway, and we can't supply a choir for your funeral" (yes, we've had that one a couple of times too). It would be funny if it wasn't so exasperating!
