You obviously did not get the Curry's engineer I got, he arrived on time, unpacked the kit, and set it up, fully tested and works a treat. And PDQ!!! Could have something to do with the postcode then... working on steam is a bit dodgy Bob.

Bob,(L), Bob is switched on, it is just that he is from a different planet....probably from some star system, now dead, 3000 billion years ago..... BUT we like him...so he can stay... Talking of star systems, universe and all, how far away from Earth is the physical end of the universe?? There must be a brick wall or something holding us all in place?? Or is it Jeremy Cor-bin that keeps the spacedoor shut??? And it MUST be extremely gynormous, to keep all those stars moving around.
