No this isn't a moan Maidstoned, I'm spitting feathers mad about this one.

My mobile phone company (AT&T) has put me into a different data usage plan without asking me, informing me or pre-warning me. All because I went over my allotted data usage for one month (with they automatically charged me $15 for an extra 1GB to cover the overage).

The plan they have upgrading me to allows 4GB rather than the 2GB I have had for 6 years and only exceeded one time because my wife did not realize that using her phone to watch CNN while not on the home Internet used up all the data... she has been educated!

I talked to AT&T (in India - don't get me started on that) and was advised that the change was system generated to provide me with a plan better suited to my usage! All because I went .3 of a Gig over one time in so many years. The kicker is the data usage fee went from $25 for 2GB (2 phones) to $75 for 4GB (2 phones).

I'm waiting to see a monthly bill before following up on this... right now they can have there phones back and stick them where the sun don't shine!

Previous owners laying copper gas pipes and radiator pipes directly into concrete with no sleeve, I now have my kitchen floor dug up trying to find a gas leak.

We've had the same issue with water lines going through the house's concrete slab. Had to dig up a bathroom floor.

Out of genuine curiosity how would running the gas pipes though a sleeve have helped?

Protection from punctures and structural movement, plus the corrosive effects of metal in direct contact with concrete?

That's pretty much what I suspected. I may have been thrown by the fact that if there is a leak when inside a sleeve you would still have to dig the area out I would have thought.

It's the acid in the concrete that eats through metal, if you cover it then it should never leak unless you have some dodgy connections.

Yesterday a bloke came to deep clean the oven.

Now if we switch it on it trips out the electricity to the whole house. He won't answer the phone or return his voice mails.

Twat.
