Brian is angry.  Enid is frustrated.  Obviously, both are at the end of their tether.  I have been saying the same to 2g for three months.  Towards the end of that period, a meeting took place.  The amount of stress involved in arranging it was so much that it was necessary for my daughter to clinch the deal.

Apart from the superficial use of the word sorry, the outcome of the meeting was that support would be arranged.  After ten working days, there has been nothing but 2g finding out if I want to send my view of the website. Most of all, I wanted an immediate connection to an existing support group.  What could be simpler than that?  The 2g website cannot respond so that is the priority.

The 2g response to emails is wrong.  I send them but receive no response until threats are made.  If I must resort to pasting sheets of paper in public places this is just the start. Stage 2 is the windscreens of your nearest car park.  Next stop, the windows of the Hereford Times plus large windows of shops in the centre of Hereford.  

Wake up, little 2g, wake up
Wake up, little 2g, wake up

We've both been sound asleep
Wake up little 2g and weep
The movie's over, it's four o'clock
And we're in trouble deep

Wake up, little 2g
Wake up, little 2g

Well, what are we gonna tell your Mama
What are we gonna tell your Pa?
What are we gonna tell our friends
When they say, "Ooh la la!"

Wake up, little 2g
Wake up, little 2g

Well, I told your Mama that you'd be in by ten
Well, 2g baby, looks like we goofed again
Wake up, little 2g
Wake up, little 2g
We gotta go home

Wake up, little 2g, wake up
Wake up, little 2g, wake up

The movie wasn't so hot
It didn't have much of a plot
We fell asleep, our goose is cooked
Our reputation is shot

Wake up, little 2g
Wake up, little 2g
