Re: The Book thread

I rang up last Monday to ask (politely) where the hell my replacement card was and got told it should arrive by the "end of the week. " Just curious... that wouldn't happen to be with Abbey National would it? My girlfriend's having exactly the same problem with them at the moment. Her las...
