Currys Engineer Gets In A Slight Fix
More grief for Currys – they’re now having to waste valuable resources getting their engineers freed from the homes of customers who have taken them hostage.
Tracey Fox of Co. Durham (below right) barricaded the door and refused to let the repairman leave after becoming exasperated with her repeatedly-knackered washing machine.
She said, “The company had already cancelled on me four days earlier and I was already annoyed about that."
"When they eventually sent someone round, he said it was because of a two pence piece and started to pack up all his gear."
There’s a happy ending to this one, as Currys have replaced Tracey’s washing machine and given her with a new one. It's too early to say whether she’ll fill this one with coins as well.
The lesson here is that, if you buy an appliance from Currys and take out a warranty, it could be wise to invest in some bondage gear and a gimp mask too, so you can truss up any half-arsed engineers who they might send out in the event of a fault.
