I thought this was funny

Got an email from a friend who forwarded this to me.

"I'm not usually one for posting warnings about potential scams but I had a close miss today. I walked into B&Q and some old guy dressed in orange asked me if I wanted decking. Fortunately, I got the first punch in and that was the end of that. Those less alert might not be so lucky. ……….be careful out there.."

given all the hassles with the orange email service and server at present I for one find it even funnier::a lot of folks would I think quite happily ask orange if IT wanted decking ...I also think there might be more than one person in the forming queue too::))

they all have their speed limiters set at 0.17mph faster than mine, so they are forever flying past me on the motorway out of their preston brook rdc.
