What a waste of money.
Yesterday British Gas delivered to me four economy light bulbs. I never asked for these, in fact if I live to be 100 (which is about as likely as Miss Piggy being the next Prime Minister) I’ll never use the mountain of these I have been given by various organisations over the last couple of years. Deliver is perhaps not strong enough of a word because the method used requires the post person to hand them direct to the customer. If they are not in, the parcel has to be returned. Not only are they wasting my time and money they are screwing up the postal service. Two 40w and two 60w bulb so they also want me to sit in the dark. I’d rather see a concerted effort to keep prices down and stop wasting money on silly promotions such as this. Can you see the scenario in Gas HQ Oooh they’re pensioners, send em a couple of light bulbs then we tell em the cost of energy is going up 30% but we’re helping you save money by sending you these bulbs.
