    With ‘personally’ booming from the speakers while I wait to be served with champions league football, the only thing I imagine now is Julius telling Etisalat ‘ I go deal with you. Personally’!
    It’s about time anyway. Big companies tends to treat customers with too much bull crap in this clime.
