On the evening of the finals of the Maria programe, I was at my mums house. (Please bear in mind, my mum is 74 and does not possess a mobile phone (love her!)).
The following conversation took place: (M= Mum; CA= Charlies Aunt; E= MC squared)
M: Jill, I really like that Connie. Will you text a vote in for me please?
CA:(Joking!) Does my future welfare depend on it?
M: No, but will you anyway,please?
CA: Yes, I'd love to (not!)
There then follows a few minutes silence, where I have a completely senior moment and get all the numbers wrong to vote, and my dear mum decides to nod off. We are then startled by my phone bleeping, with a message from the BBC saying that my vote had been registered.
With me so far? Good
All goes well for about a week, and then I start to get messages from the wrong number I texted to vote for Big Con. This number turns out to be- shall we say- a "chat" line
My tactic at the moment is to ignore it, but I know on landline phones you can get a "call barring" thing for this type of nuisance. Is it worth me bothering the police in case the same people are pestering somebody else? My phone is on the Virgin network, but I don't know who to contact about this.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
PS Last night I fell out of bed! I rolled over, but there was no bed left for me to roll over on to. I haven't done this since I was a child Any other adults have a tendency to fall out of bed?
