      My wife microwaved the Sky Router (that was white.)

      I hid my router in the microwave to stop the kids
      from using it.
      My wife thought it was a Birds Eye low cal Chicken,
      Tomato & Mozzarella Bake.
      Now the router won’t work.
      Will Sky send me a new one?

      Just got off the phone to Sky.
      All they will offer me is a Birds Eye Voucher for £1.50.
      Can I extract the username and password from the router
      that was white, and is now black, and use a Belkin instead?

      ....no...but I'm sure it'll be more palatable if you add sweet chilli sauce


      PS...what grudge have you got against your routers ?

      Truth be told, he wanted to try and convert his crappy v1 netgear to one of the new sexy black sagems.

      After days of soul searching I have decided to issue this advice
      sent to me by Commander Herring.

      Microwaving your White V1 router can damage your connection and speed.
      Especially if there is nothing wrong with it.

      And your Microwave may explode, be unusable, and you may starve.

      I did not realise he was going into our joint

      He lost £4.7BILLION.
      He has said he is “willing to talk to the police”.

      Does your wife know about your boyfriend and your debts?

      I have a solution for both problems. Tell your wife that Sky have said it will cost 4.7billion to replace the damaged box then use her dosh to pay off the boyfriends debtors.

      Sorted.
