I've just had a call from them - went like this:

"Hello, can I speak to Mr Tribeck" (I've spelt it as it needs to be done for the way they said it)

"Speaking"

"This is <name> from Southern Electric - we notice you don't have any cover for your gas boiler or central heating system."

"Oh my God! What will happen if the gas boiler I don't own blows up?"

"Eh?"

"I don't have gas nor central heating <giggle>."

"Ahh - you've got a cheeky laugh! Not to worry Mr Tribeck".

One of the more amusing calls to me smile

I'm mid-terrace, so I don't really need a lot of heating, and when I do, I've got a couple of log burners.

I knew someone who looked like him. We called him Harold.
