Of feat and things...

Feet are things and things are afoot. Loads of things. I can’t divulge too much yet, but I expect to be able to issue a big news release shortly. Ye’ll just have to wait!
Meanwhile my phone is out of action. I was cut off this morning, just as I was awaiting one of the most-anticipated phonecalls of my life. Blau suspended the account without warning because my last €15 top-up bounced. I’ve to pay an additional €9.50 “fine” to release the account. To cut a long story short, the soonest they'll release it again is “three to four working days” after I organise a €24.50 bank transfer by physically walking into a bank. Paying over the phone then and there was “leider nicht möglich”. So es ist in diese Land...
That’s just one of the things afoot. The rest of the feet are good I’m relieved to say, and the best feat of all I hope to be able to share with you next week.

  1. What the hell? I have Blau too, which makes me especially interested in finding out how to make sure that never happens to me. Bad enough that most of the time I don't have any guthaben on there to begin with...

  2. It only bounced because there wasn't enough in the account to cover the top up. Fair enough I guess, but they could have had the courtesy to let me know before cutting me off, or at least allowed me to rectify the situation by paying through another method. No - I couldn't pay over the phone with a credit card or though another bank account, nor would they even accept it if I went to shop and physically bought Blau credit with good hard cash. The only option was to walk into a bank with cash to organise a bank transfer. I guess that's why they're called Blau - they want their customers to feel the same...
