Water Companies 'n' That

``Anglia Water`` are a right bunch of narnas! Aparently we can't get anyone else to suply us water because *mocking voice* :

`oh, we're the only people who can supply to your house because we're the best and everyone loves us and we won't let anyone else bill you and you have no choice but to choose us because we're excellent and your duty in life is to pay too much on your water to us!`.

They're a bunch of sods is what they are!

They said they'd fit a meter for free, so I asked for them to do that and I'm going to carry on paying a fixed rate because they deserve me to waste their time, just like they waste my blog entry.

    Isn't life great Ben - there's whole great big world out there to react against .. and Monty's worship leading face!

    Hey Ben, are you there? Tell La that I am (and perhaps some others are) waiting to see wot you wrote on those paintings.

    Someone pointed the post previous to this out. I find the attitude somewhat rude personally.

    You said you lied - I said what I thought the reply would be. If I am wrong I am wrong and I am big enough to accept it. I don't think i was wrong about you lying which your post clearly said you did.

    I have actually decided to no longer post on your blog or read it.(for which I am sure your glad).

    I find your lack of mutual respect in the face of people disagreeing with you disconcerting and ultimatley disrespectful. I hope that your blog is not a reflection of the way you communicate on the outside. You would do well listening and learning from some of your blog peers who, in my opinion, conduct themselves to others in a far more appropriate and respectful manner.

    I wish you well in your Christian journey, your future marriage and hope everything goes well in general.

    BEnvolio, why did you again resort to an insult based around homosexuality?

    Monty - so you're not going to link me from your blog then?

    Paul - I'm still the schoolboy I never wish not to be

    Tim - we still don't know what to put on the art yet... we're thinking about perhaps using liturgy for inspiration

    How about: “BENVOLIO: Church without the pseudo bits….”

    A bit of caustic comment does a good job of cleaning out the cognitive viruses and pseudo speak. Trouble is bleach kills all known living things, and it’s unpleasant if you get it in the face. We don’t want people to lose face here, and I am sure no one wants Monty to lose his worship leading face.

    Pity Monty’s gone. But he hasn’t really gone - after all he’s got an eternity with you.

    On a serious note, I think the proof is in the pudding as they say.

    I've never alienated someone in real life from me (to my knowledge) and I find it suprising just how seriously people, like Monty, choose to take this little online world.

    Thing is, just as much as Monty perceives me as... *checks*... ``I find your lack of mutual respect in the face of people disagreeing with you disconcerting and ultimatley disrespectful``, I've found exactly the same with him through the six months or so we've e-known each other. I don't say that to exhonourate or vent myself, but to say that if there's one thign I've learned from the NYFC forum and that MSN software you read so much about these days, is that I'd neither like to be perceived or perceive based on a veneer shown over the world wide internet. Monty, to me comes across as a extreme liberalist and censorist, but I'm guessing that because he's a worship leader and a family man he's not. I have and will base my opinion of Monty by that fact that his children and wife love him and his church has offered him responsibility.

    I'll miss Monty. I wouldn't write my blog unless there was someone to disagree with becase it's through discussion and debate that we learn - both from each other and often from articulating our own thoughts. It's people like Monty, and Helen Boutel for whom a lot of my blogs are directed, just for that reason.

    My theory where Monty and I have become crossed is this... One virtue in our society is not necessarily to respect another person's point of view, but their right to possess and express it. I think Monty has not demonstrated respect for either of these facets in me, and I have not respected his own opinions, but, like i said before I respect his right to have and express an opinion in the media of a discussion.

    Again, I don't write this to vindicate myself in anyway - just to confirm that I recon I'm a nice chap really, and despite the discourse between Monty and me, I'm going out on a limb and assuming he's a nice chap to.

    I guess we'll never know until we meet face to face.

    p.s, on second thoughts, I'll change `homogayual` to a more grown up insult

  • At 7:01 PM, Blogger Timothy V Reeves said…

    Self analysis, openess to feedback and conciliatory advances are a sure sign of nice chap. Difficult to do for any of us!

    PS: That was me muffing it and accidently posting it twice.

  • At 9:21 AM, Blogger Ben F. Foster Esq. (c) said…

    I agree, but debate is important. if, at the end of a debate you find yourself challeneged and you don't change, that's just pride & hubris.

  • At 10:19 PM, Blogger Timothy V Reeves said…

    Well, keep at it Ben. Your postings cause lots of challenging debate. Who would have thought that a posting on the water supplier would lead us all into such 'deep water', so to speak!
