And yet again, buerocracy (sp?) and rules are against me...

See, it doesn't make any sense. I've just found out that I apparently don't meet the minimum requirements for a beginners course in Audiology and Acoustics because I didn't finish the Chemistry course when I was 16... How would doing maybe 20 more hours of chemistry 7 years ago possibly make me more equipt to understand something so totally unrelated now? I'm completely non-plussed about that. Anyhoo, I've sent an email to admissions at the Uni in question so keep your fingers crossed for me!

And on a (not at all!) related subject... Someone thought it was funny to sign me up to one of those porn-text services, so I've been getting loads of messages asking if I want this or that sent to my mobile... And they've charged me for the 'pleasure' as well! £1.50 per text received! Please let me make it very clear, for the record, that this is not something I'm interested in (especially not at that price...). I'm planning on writing to OfCOM - not that I will get my £6 or so reimbursed (here's hoping!) but it's not right that someone can sign you up to stuff like that... What if someone signed up a kids mobile to it?? Surely you should at least have to sign up via the mobile in question?

Just realised I've used the expression 'in question' twice in this short post. Lol.

Anyhoo, I've a lot more stuff I wanna moan about but I think the two will be enough for now.

Indignantly yours,
