Manchester City Council Council Tax Unit are a bunch of useless cretins

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

I knew it was too good to be true. I told Manchester City Council I was moving, they issued a final bill and closed my account, and then a little while later sent me a cheque for the amount I’d overpaid. Fair enough.

Except today they’ve sent a “final demand” for &ukp;85 for no clear reason and a demand that I pay it by the 16th September (the notice having been issued on the 9th, giving me “7 days” – ahahahahaha, right) to pay it or they get a court summons issued. And their phonelines close at 5pm because they’re lazy fuckers and letting people contact them at sensible times is just too much like a fucking good idea.

GAH. This is fucking ridiculous.

Just sayin’

Jeremy, former flatmate and world-traveller, came back from tending to monkeys in Africa to post some photos on facebook. He seems… kind of familiar:
