start the pump
remember to always set the alarm on your mobile phone at this point, as a routine
(allow enough time for the pump use)
keep phone with you at all times (most of us do)
(wrap phone in plastic bag if raining, place in close pocket)
jump like f*ck when the alarm goes off
try to remember why you set the alarm
:lol:
Thanks Gary. Problem is....

I don't really do mobile phones. I have one, somewhere. It's a Nokia from about 2007. When I stopped work I basically never got another one and the whole smart phone revolution has totally passed me by. When I think 'phone' it looks like this:

Sorted it. The easy way.

I dug out a very old radio and I've plugged it into the multigang with the on/off switch.

I've tuned it to 'NRJ' - which is France's worst radio channel. It plays all the most appalling Europap ballads.

So when I pass by the well pump plug on my way into the house I am driven mad by the terrible racket coming out of the radio and it forces me to switch it off.

The problem is solved.

Set a timer on your phone when you switch it on... ;)
And put a notice up saying set timer before switching on.... :D
Yeah, but how will I remember to look at the notice...?
Put a reminder on the phone?
