I was gonna post this as a reply...
The vast majority of people at my school were rich flasy gits, they always had the latest clothes/shoes/gadets whatver.

But there was this one guy who started the same time I did (about 10yrs at school together)

They live on an large old estate in Kent (his house has an elevator!?), theres a cricket pitch and everything!


The point is, he NEVER let on that he was minted, unlike the vast majority of idiots there, and his car of choice after he left uni, got a job and saved up? A beaten up Nova.

Think he has a new car now, but nothing fancy.

He is probably the only most down to earth, easy going, top-notch, genourous, humble, hard-working, complete legend of a bloke that comes from a wealthy background that I know of!

Ahem, so it might be the opposite of the QOTW...oh well, hes a great bloke!

Phone companies
About 6 years ago me and the Ex moved into our own place and promptly took up a phone and internet deal with UselessTwunts*. All was fine for a year or so, then out of the blue I get a bill for ~1200.

Something is not right here.

Get straight on the phone, and explain that the bill has jumped up from ~20 to something that is quite obviously not right. A few 'Oh, yes thats not right' from the call center guys, and I think its all sorted.

No such luck.

I get another bill saying that we are still in debt and need to pay imediatly. Call them back, and the explain that the bill is from ringing sex chat lines. WTF. Now, I know it wasnt me, and I was fairly sure my missus hadn't been chatting to some cunning linguist.

Rang the number that we had apparently been ringing - silent. Nothing. Not a sound. I explain this to UselessTwunts* and they dont budge.

Why would I ring a sex chat line with nobody there?!

So cancel, and tell them to shove the bill - Im not paying it.

Anywhooooo, cut to end of last year and I figure that it's still sitting on my credit report, im doing better now so lets just pay the damn thing off.

Now, last month I get a letter from UselessTwunts* informing me that I have overpaid by 364 and to ring to claim my refund. I do so, and the lady on the other end tells me "We will be sending your refund of 1456.80 within 30 days"

Me: "....sorry, what was that again?"
Her: "1456.80 within 30 days"
Me: "Excellent, have a nice day." (trying to hide the growing smile on my face)

Maybe they finally realised that I didn't make sex calls to silent lines.

* Im not naming names until I see that cheque!

Black man
I've just remembered another from when I was knee high to a grass hopper.

I used to get woken in the night by, well I don't actually know what it was, but anyway I used to wake up in the middle of the night.

Now, everytime I would wake up I would go to the landing outside my room (my parents room was on the same landing, next to mine) and lean over the banisters and say "Mr black man". Doing this would then lead to hearing running from downstairs, along the downstairs hall, then a "black man" - not racist, but black, as in a black shape of a man, a dark shadow running up the stairs towards me.

I would then run into my parents room and dive into their bed crying.

If I hadn't kept saying that, then it probably wouldn't have happened, but for some reason I couldn't help it.

I remember telling my mum about it, and she did the whole "black people are the same as white people". Yes, but not _this_ one. He's in our house, and only appears in the middle of the night after calling him and has no features, just darkness..right, perfecly normal.

Then it suddenly stopped.

Still creeps me out to this day.

Black Horse
A couple of years back some friends of mine bought the Black Horse in Pluckley. Now, if you've ever heard of this place, its bloody haunted!

I lived there for about 3 months with my mate doing it up after the previous landlord had ripped everything out. Not being a particular believer in these things wasnt too worried about the whole living there.


The first night we were there we slept on sofas upstairs. Just falling asleep when I hear footsteps, I know its not my mate as he fell asleep before me - and he sleeps like a log, anyway it gets closer and then stops by the sofa im on. By this point i have my head in the sleeping bag, heart racing, and generally bricking it.

Next day, find a 'secret' staircase upstairs, nothing at the top except 2 chairs facing each other.

I used to sit in the kitchen talking out loud, just mentioning that we were trying to sort the place out, and not meaning to ruin it. (which we didn't)

Oh, and there was a room which had a shower in, never went in there. Something very very very weird about that room.

Getting the shivers writing this.

Appologies about length, its natural.

I've found that it is never best to post on the main board by mistake, as you will get ripped to shreads for sharing a view! Dammit!!

(This may be entirely my fault for being drunk..)
