As Charles Arthur puts it: O2 opens brewery, forgets bottles.
For what it’s worth my local Carphone Warehouse didn’t open at 8.02; it opened at 9, and when the doors opened there were five people already at the counter. Maybe they were magicians, or maybe they were friends and family of staff. IT IS A MYSTERY!
It seems the shop’s total allocation was a mighty eight 8GB phones and 4 16-giggers. Credit checks – for existing customers, despite O2’s repeated comments that existing customers wouldn’t need a credit check – are taking an hour-plus.
What a shambles.
