The guy who says the ‘hello, your call’s being held in a queue’ message sounds like he’s got the right hump, moody fucker


Cheers for the tip-off, friend!


seriously, listen to him, I can’t believe they’ve ok’d that


We’re getting a real insight into your life today.

So you’re shredding all traces of your past life in order to enrol as a part-time student and enter a brave new future?


I’d really like to do this course but it’s a grand! http://www.bbk.ac.uk/study/2017/short-courses/modules/SCPS/SCPS113S4

I wanted to check if they let you pay in installments


I met a guy last week who did a biology degree at Birkbeck, it sounded good.


Just listened. He is NOT happy.


it’s unbelievably huffy and puffy!


Hey @rainmaker this could be a good episode on the reply all podcast - we track this guy down and find out why he’s so moody, like a mix of the boy in the photo and long distance!


Relatively moody.

I think they have problems with their admin staff there, at least with the school that looked after Art History they did. The science dept were friendly but a little ineffectual, a bit like me.


Sick of people bloody going on about the miserable guy on the Birkbeck course helpline, tbh.


See if it qualifies for the advanced learner loan?


Great, thanks, called up and got through. I start an unfunded PhD in Planetary Science in January :slightly_frowning_face:


need to link him to this thread somehow. This thread could be better than Balonz on mumsnet!


Just had a listen. You’re right. For me the grumpiest bit is the P in “if you know the P erson you need to speak to”. He really spits it.
