Greed and shortsightedness.

We aren't going to have a home to go to.

I planted 14 trees in my garden ... that should help a bit, no ?

When I was here in October the door handle on the passenger side of the Seat stopped working - I presumed it was a cable issue. So, I got back a couple of weeks ago - and the same thing happened on the driver's door - turns out it was a stupid cast "sh*t-metal" actuator that broke in both cases (and this was a VW part!). Guess what - no spares available in Portugal, so ordered a pair from Poland........ temporarily fixed up cables to open the doors until the parts arrive.
Then there was a problem with the hazard warning switch. Fixed that. But, then (not immediately) the indicators stopped working! Checked fuses, fiddled about and they started working again (magic?). Then the parts from Poland arrived early, so fitted them on Friday and the doors are back to normal working.
Yesterday, SWMBO was flying back to the UK for a visit. Got in the car and the driver's window refused to work!!!
Do you think someone's trying to tell me something?!!

Me too.

i have a procedure early in the morning and pre-op and finances were sorted out last Tuesday. I had a call today, Sunday, asking for another payment as it had been "miscalculated " last week. I gave up arguing because without the extra payment it would be cancelled and I had already started prepping for it. Ridiculous.

Stupid when they do things like that.

We dont have that sort of issue, they just wont cover certain medical needs and happens this time around I need something that isn't covered and its annoying.

Yep. Unbelievable. I wonder if I had missed the phone call and turned up at day surgery tomorrow if they would have actually turned me away? On one hand I am glad I answered even though it really pissed me off and I didn't feel they should have called but waited until after the procedure but on the other hand I would have been fuming to prep and be turned away in the morning.

That's really bad, it's like being held to ransom. When it's a health issue they know they have people by the short and curlies, most of us would just pay it in these circumstances. Good luck for the procedure xx
