Oh and by the way, was that a genuine typo or did you mean to write that with an Edinburgh twang? Cheesy

trying to get through to a call centre, is it really necessary to keep stating every 15 seconds "i'm very sorry to keep you waiting, please carry on holding and I'll put you though to someone as soon as I can" Roll Eyes

Likely because nobody in the design process has listened to it - so good intentions become irritating.  Also, 15 seconds, or 30 (the latter is pretty common) sounds like a long time when you build these things, because you go in with a false sense of optimism.  You design it thinking you'll answer them quickly and forget to check what 10 minute loop feels like.

Most people who live near chard will say that they live near another settlement to avoid embarrassment.
