    Argos Electrical Equipment Refund

    Under the Consumer rights act 2015 you have 30 days from purchase to reject the goods as not fit for purpose and you can demand a refund. This may be a pain in the arse, but if you are up for a scrap (I'm Scottish so it's genetic) take it back to the shop and tell them you wish to reject the laptop as not fit for puspose, listing the faults. Remind them they have a leagl obligation unedr the act I mentioned above to refund you as the goods are less than 30 days old. They will try and bullshit you with the excuse that she has activated windows so they are unable to accept it as a return. This is a common argument, and the law states that this is an acceptable action if it is required to establish the goods are in working order. If this does not work there are a number of other avenues but keep a note of the store, the time and the person you spoke to and I can let you know the next options. Do not go to Acer yet mate as this is this mobs modus operandi and they rely on people eventually giving up.

    You've been drinking the same beers as me. Is it great minds think alike or fools seldom differ?

    Lee, did she buy it online or in store? Don't go to Acer. Your contract is with Argos so don't allow theh to muddy the waters and pass the buck.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Man on internet says something. Other man on internet says something else. Another man on internet likes what man says but not what the other man says. Yet another man, who likes the man but not the other man, says that another man should not be saying such things about the man. Repeat the above ad infinitum. Stronts gets negged.

    Miami Building Collapse

    The most liklely cause is unauthorised or insufficiently engineered alterations. If they were in or around the core, it would not take a great deal of change of loading to dramatically alter the stresses on the structure. Once one component fails, it trasfers the load to adjacent components and if these have not been engineered for such a load it also fails until such times as it reaches the catastrophic failure point which is when the whole lot comes down. There is a phrase oft used in modern building structures "add lightness". This is what happens when you get it wrong. As with the majority of these disasters, the people making wrong decisions are never the victims of these poor chioces.

    She is very pretty. I would give her my shiny Charizard card if she let me touch her front bottom.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    How many potatoes can you grow in a window box?
  10. I am not from Liverpool so can only comment on what I see as an outsider. I remember the last time I visited the city with @Jennings. I bored him shitless wittering on about the architecture of the buildings in the city centre. There are some truly stunning buildings there and the whole of the city has an air of industry and purpose about it. Some cities have a feel of claustrophobia and an unwelcome aura (Manchester is one, Peterborough another) but I never feel anything other than relaxed and a little bit in awe of the scale of the docks when I am in Liverpool. There is a serious danger of the city going the way of Glasgow Clydeside in that it could be swallowed up by spreadsheet developers trading industrial heritage for Brise Soleil bedecked, glazed and powder coated aluminium clad monstrosities. I do hope it doesn't as I Love the city.

    House insurance problem

    Have they accepted liability in terms that are unambiguous Dave? Might sound a silly question but they can be very slippery. If so I would collate the series of events with timelines and send them in the form of a letter (include all your evidence including their offer). Inform them of any hardships or inconvenience the delay is causing you (be specific and factual) and send it to them stating that they have 7 days from the date of the letter to provide a satisfactory resolution or you will refer it to the FOS. (https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/businesses/complaints-deal/insurance/home-buildings-insurance/accidental-damage). I cannot guarantee this will work mate as I do not know the wording of your policy but it might prompt a response to move it forward. Good luck.

    House fixy-uppy shit

    That's disappointing if they have done work for you before. It is a sellers market at the moment and most tradesmen have very full order books ( working from home has led a lot of homeowners wanting alterations). Add that to the usual spring renewal frenzy and it's the perfect storm for anyone looking for building work to be done. Not helpful I know, but would perhaps explain why a previously reliable and cost effective tradesman is suddenly not as helpful.

    House fixy-uppy shit

    Ask them for a detailed breakdown of the costs and the sums involved in each element of the works. It it transpires that there is a contingency for items which may not be required then ask them to agree to them being deducted from the final bill. Get it in writing !!
