In all honesty I tend not to really notice non-PC comments that much. And there is a gulf of difference between something that is rooted in homophobia and something that's just a little ill-judged. I have a tendency to make those sorts of comments myself (in different contexts) even with people that I don't know well enough to venture such things and to blurt out things that I think are really funny, and even giggle to myself, when, later, my partner will point out that they were probably not appropriate.
Anyway, back to EE - I've logged in this morning to be presented with a sort of wall-mural style series of different plans which appear to be arranged in no particular fashion whatsoever. It's the same thing that you see on TV where the manager of the team is stood in front of a wall of corporate logos cunningly arranged in such a way that one or two really stand out, those are the ones you're supposed to notice.
Leaving aside the ones with "swappable benefits" like BT Sport which is of no interest whatsoever and Amazon Prime which won't actually work from here anyway since the licensing arrangments are different in this country - all the Montalbano I have on there - the Italian stuff - won't actually stream in Italy, ironically - there are a range of plans which start from those with 1Gb/mo which even I would easily get through, up to 100GB or more which I doubt I would use, but then if get stuck somewhere here with no Wi-Fi the tethering might be useful.
It is useful for me to keep the UK mobile number for a while at least so it's worth doing. I'd heard data was quite expensive in the UK and the prices for that sort of thing over here are about half of what they are in the UK (seems to be the case for most things actually) but they all seem quite expensive - starting from around £25 per month. I was expecting more like £10. Is this normal..
