Re: Halfords 'Lifetime Warranty'

Question for you. When did you buy the set?

Under the 'sale of goods act' goods supplied must be as described and fit for purpose, therefore you are entitled to a replacement or refund as the goods are not fit for purpose.

Re: Silly Comments.

I work as a receptionist in an hotel and the silliest question I recieved was from an actress from London, when she was up here in the Lake District filming for an episode of Poirot. She asked me if she needed to dial the international code to phone London.
