        I’ve started a new business, delivering hot

        drinks straight to the customer.  However,

        I’ve been advised to change the name of

        the company. Apparently, people might be

        put off by the links to crappy service and

        reliability problems. It’s a shame, too. 

        I thought Tea-Mobile had a nice ring to it.
