For years I’ve been plagued with telephone calls intended for readers’s offers at the Olsen Line. When I answered the phone I patiently explained that although they’d rung an 0845 number it was coming through to my house. Some people don’t believe me, especially when they ring back within a few minutes and it’s me again. Most are apologetic. Sometimes they’ve left messages for me – some with people desperately ringing from airports.
I ask them to tell the shipping line about the problem when they do get through to them but nothing has changed so either they haven’t told them or the shipping line doesn’t care.
I used to ring people back and explain but no more. Just thought I’d let you know.
