No, it's not Monday, I just wanted to confuse you all by posting my Monday Media post on a Sunday.
Now that's what I call service with a
M&S CUSTOMER DEMANDS AN APOLOGY. A Marks & Spencer customer who demanded a "hand-drawn picture of a smiley dinosaur" after being overcharged for a sandwich was delighted to receive exactly that.
Bill Bennett fired off a letter demanding a refund after he was overcharged £1.10 for a salmon sandwich at an M&S store.
He was promised a £5 voucher as compensation – but when it failed to arrive, he asked for a hand-drawn picture of a smiley dinosaur instead, to cover the inconvenience.
To his surprise, M&S customer adviser Steve Jones sent the voucher and the child-like drawing through the post. - Steve Morris, The Guardian (13/09/2011)
DALEK SETS NEW RECORD. Doctor Who fan Rob Hull has set a Guinness world record after amassing a huge collection of 571 unique Dalek models. - Jimmy Nsubuga, The Metro (14/09/2011).
Slug slows traffic to a, erm, snail's pace.
SLUG CAUSES TRAFFIC CHAOS. Council engineers were called to a busy junction in Darlington, County Durham, when the lights failed.
They found the dead slug when they opened the control box in Whinfield Road near the town's Asda supermarket.
Councillor Chris McEwan who has received complaints from residents about the fault, said: "Somehow the slug managed to infiltrate the control mechanism, sit on the circuit board.
"We don't know how long the slug had been there.
"Unfortunately, it was dead by the time we found it, so we were unable to question it.
"Sadly, you just can't legislate for a rogue slug trying to take out Darlington's traffic system." - Yahoo News (14/09/2011)
PLEASE NOTE : Wherever possible I will endeavour to bring you the links to articles I have used in my Media Monday posts but this is not always possible.
