fylfot: I'm by no means a humourless individual in general, and perhaps I'm being dense and missing something on this occasion. But if so, I'd love to know what it is because, in all honesty, I can't see anything the remotest bit funny here. I admit it; maybe my sense of humour has crashed.
I do know that I've blown up a very minor incident and made it sound a lot more serious than it is, but it's a matter of principle. Besides, having suffered a similar (but worse) incident myself, I know how extremely annoying it can be.
