Something truly unbelievable has happened, something which has made me realise quite how low my life has sunk. I'm not sure how I can carry on.

The council have sent me a letter:

Dear DullTrev,
You currently receive a single person's discount on your council tax. This is based on information you provided quite some time ago, and we have to check it, because you can't seriously be saying you're such a loooooooooooooooser that you're still living on your own. I mean, you're not are you? Loooooooooooooooser. Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooser. God, you must be pathetic.
Anyway, if you are still willing to admit to living on your own, fill in the form, ticking the "I am such a looooooooooooooser" box. Thanks! Looooooooooooooooser.

Your loving local council employee. Not as much of a looooooooooooooooooser as you.

Council employees mock me.


I have started a blog! I feel so Web 2.0. Anyway, because I want to be able to give this link out to different people, I am doing the intermittent series on office games on a blog, called (imaginatively enough) Office Games. Don't expect frequent updates, I want to keep my job.

And I'm working out how to use AdSense for another site I am working on. But so far I'm only 700 views away from making $0.01 on the blog!

I hope it works better on my other site...

And I've already bought an ad, don't say it.


I will, apparently, be going to watch the England match on Saturday. I reserve the right to hurl abuse at both teams.


For the first time I am working to produce a 'very' technical product. Now I finally understand quite how dangerous the non-technical managers are to getting anything done - "We've decided to go with this solution which doesn't do half of the things it needs to, but you can fix that quickly enough, can't you? Oh, and it'll be your neck on the block if it doesn't work, ok? Super!"

I take it all back. You were all correct to complain about it.

"Are you still the people you claim to be the last time you registered?  Residents may choose to go seperate ways, or other people may move in"

Mmmmm, that'd go down really nice if CAB and I had just split.

And couple that with the nice, nice letter from the Inrand Levenue last week:
"If you are making any more money than you already told us, then tell us again.  Admittedly, we should be able to check your earnings by the PAYE receipts on file, only we're so fucking shit we can't seem to find them. 

Instead, we'll send you this note so we can include a nice little threatener about how badly we can ream you if we even think you're not coughing up the readies.  Come on, Big Gordo's nearly in at No 10 and we know he'll be spending big next year. 

So give us even more money, you cheating bastard or we will really, really sick the hounds on you.  Like we did that kid in Leicester; ha they won't be underreporting their cash earnings again will they?

Oh, and that tax rebate that you ought to get from last year because you were out of work for a couple of years?  Well, we're still looking at that.  Despite it being a simple matter of checking your P45 and P60, we can't frankly be arsed.  Oh, and interest on that money, haha, no we're accountants, we can't possibly calculate that.

Love and Kisses,
The TaxAndTaxAndTaxMan.

The more I have to deal with arms of this government the more I feel like founding my own cult, if only to take advantage of a better tax status.  Obviously, impressionable 20 something ladies would also be a side benefit as would the fanatics I'd inspire to bring down this evil government of taxtaxtaxtaxtaxtax and incompetence.

You had better write them a really snarky reply, by komet (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Oct 04, 2006 at 06:48:12 AM EST
then have your "shocking plight" plastered all over BBC News. What cunts.
