In fairness, whoever it was who riled the Dean enough only suggested that he (Dean) was "taking his bat and ball", which is hardly an insult by most standards (Renee Worringer needed it interpreted for her, which I found amusing). Then again, I've had enough arguments with my brothers to know that something as inoffensive as "what's for dinner tonight, mum?" can sometimes result in a punch to the guts.

Was the message on my phone? If it was, this is further proof of how appalling the service is. If it was an SMS, I'll probably get it tomorrow. Voicemail could be anywhere up to a week later...

Perhaps the guy's remark just happened to be the straw that broke the camel's back. Do you know if any complaints are being made? Even if they're not, I don't imagine this is going to bode well for the Dean and his reputation. His behaviour was really out of line.

I SMSed you at about midday. Yikes, that sounds like a horrid service provider you have there.

I'm none too sure about the complaints side of things. The feeling I got from the meeting was that one was going to be made, but I left before it was totally clear. I've Emailed the chair of the meeting, since she'd be the one to know if anyone does.

And yes, my service provider is generally hideous. It's not usually that bad with SMSs, but this proves it's having more issues than previously suspected. It's also none too great with numbers it doesn't have already, so could you Email/SMS your number - otherwise I'll never get it into the wretched thing.
