£40 that i dont have. besides its over and done with now. locksmiths didnt cross my mind, and even if they did it would have been too late anyway because as i said my friend just phoned the fire brigade
outrageous, i find this attitude extraordinary. The fire brigade are there as a last resort WHEN THERE IS RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY OR SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, it was an ENTIRELY inappropriate use of the emergency services and I really do hope they levy a charge for inappropriate use.

personally i'd be more worried about other rediculous things your paying tax for that one night when my friend may have uncessarily rung the fire brigade
I'd assume from the fact you didn't answer my question that you aren't a taxpayer, so why is it that you came on here to tell us that we've paid for the fire brigade to come out and do a locksmiths job, yet you haven't! And you continue to try and argue your case! This is ridiculous!

i'm not arguing my case as such as i have said several times that i agree that it was a rediculous reason, and i have also said several times that i didnt phone them, and because my friend was on the other side of the bathroom door i was very limited to what i could do about her phoning them.

you keep shooting yourself in the foot though... stop giving them reason to keep telling you the same thing.

Your wrong, their right. deal with it and stop replying in such a haughty attitude

i accept that they are right and i am wrong, i didnt post this thread for this though. i mearly asked if there would be any follow up because i've never been in a situation to ring the fire brigade before.

Surely the simplist and cheapest solution would have been to get a couple of lads from the local drinking fountain to unload some aggression onto that door? All you'd have to do is stroke their pride a bit and pay them off with a couple of pints.

Or by kicking the door down?
Do you know how much a door, lock, handle and hinges cost? And they might have to replace the frame as well if it was kicked in. A locksmith is much MUCH cheaper.

Because people pay a large portion of their wages into tax, its the principle.

I am a taxpayer - and I care.
Me too.
Must be stats somewhere as to the huge amounts of tax revenue that are wasted on frivolous call-outs to the emergency services.

I confess myself ignorant of this. I would think the actual material (a bog standard wooden door) wouldn't cost much, but getting a transman to fit it might be expensive in the era of call out charges etc, feel free to enlighten me

(This is why I also suggested taking a hockey stick to the lock mechanism instead).

because apparently i have to accept that i am wrong and you are right (which i have done) and therefore would suggest we cannot discuss this further

quote OiaB: "leave it"
