Further to my communication problems of yesterday, I’ve just had this following internet exchange with a friend:
Friend: hullo.. did you get my txt yesterday/sunday?
Gary: erm, I’m not sure. I think so. Did you get my text [about that issue but not in direct reply to the issue in hand] today?
Friend: erm no
Really. I mean honestly! We invented the wheel so this could happen? I’m so nonplussed by the whole thing I might write a letter to a newspaper.
