…and I feel pretty warm and fuzzy about Vodafone too!
So, I went to the ‘do’ last night, and I surprised myself by actually speaking to people. I got there quite early (I’d been hanging around at work and had got bored) and so sat with a drink by myself – but when i got up to get my second drink, I actually spoke to a guy on my way back from the bar.
He’d been to one of the meets before, and recognised a couple of people, and he was really cool, and interesting, and so we had a couple more drinks and decided to attack the floor! I ended up speaking to quite a few people, and they were all really lovely and friendly, and I felt great. There was only one bloke I spoke to who was a bit of a nob, but he had just come along as a ‘plus one’ with his mate anyway, so he didn’t really count.
I’m with Vodafone, and there was a speaker from Vodafone, and a prize draw for an iPhone (which Vodafone are releasing on their network as of today) and I was hoping I’d win as my phone has REALLY started playing up – it keeps randomly switching itself off – mid phonecall to my mum on Monday, which she got all paranoid about. Anyway – the winning ticket was #51 and it was annoying as I had #15. Grrr!!
BUT – who cares!? It was a free bar ALL night. and it was a bit of a snazzy bar, so God knows how much the drinks cost (probably about £3.50 each I would reckon – central London (touristy bit) and snazzy bar combo…a far cry from my £2.55 at my local pub). So, I did drink rather a lot, which I have a tendency to do and have no problem doing, as I don’t really get hangovers. By my reckoning, I probably drank the cost of about 1 1/2 months of my mobile contract – so thanks Vodafone!
I still would’ve preferred to win the iPhone though.
The guy from Vodafone was really nice, and chatted to me, and I told him my current issues, and he said he’d get back to me on some of them…and then took out his snazzy new iPhone he’d had for about 2 hours, and followed me on Twitter. Bloody show-off. Salt and wounds come to mind.
I will definitely go along to the next event if I get the chance 🙂
