My Broken Step Counter
Here, below is the copy of the email I have sent to virgin pulse. This is not some cult group that checks if virgins have a pulse ... well I hope not anyway.
It is I believe the provider of my beloved step counter, which i am attached to as much as Jac is attached to her iphone.
Dear Virgin Pulse
This is quite a sad email , my lovely step counter has died , it could be resuscitated if I could get the sodding battery out of the back , but alas no , your Chinese manufacturers have made the screw compartment super tight and probably, only Popeye with his can of spinach and the smallest screw driver ever invented could prize this bad boy open.
I love my little step counter , it was a gift from Hallmark just before they made me redundant, they were obviously aware that I would have a lot of time on my hands in which to monitor my activity.
To thank them for their kind gift I took my step counter all the way across the Alps on the GR5 where it dutifully informed me of the many many steps it takes to cross the Alps ( a lot ).
Since our return we have been on many many long walks, it has been a little pet in my pocket and afford me a small sense of achievement, that I can easily put away 24 k steps a day ....
The dog however is knackered..... In fact there could be some doggy sabotage at play here as the clip has also broken.
Any way the whole point of this sorry tale is to ask can I have another one ??????
I will pay for it (if Mr Branson deems it appropriate) obviously due to my limited financial situation at present it would be of course greatly appreciated to receive for free . 😃
I wait with baited breath and resting feet to your response
Lots of love
As yet no response from virgins with pulses or otherwise.
