I got a letter from HMRC this morning
It stated that I had paid too much tax and they were sending a cheque for the overpayment that would arrive in the next fortnight
What caused hilarity in the hovel was the Bull saying it was most likely a demand for money
I read the first sentence and collapsed in a heap of giggles
The princely sum of £14.60 is winging its way to me
See - sometimes the taxman does offer refunds!
I got one before I had really started work! I had been working in Sainsbury’s for a Christmas job for two weeks when I got a letter from HMRC telling me they owed me fifty quid or so. I queried it, and they got all sniffy with me and said it was not possible to adjust payments, so I fed it into my bank and said no more. My wage at the time was about twenty quid, well below the tax threshold, so I found it a bit surprising.
I never question the government giving me money
I only asked them about it because I was afraid they might demand it back after I had spent it.
On the subject of deliveries…
I mean, what is the sodding point??
So that you can avoid being in the bath just then?
Ooo how wondrous is modern delivery and its accurate time for completion
Alas, my bathroom lacks a time machine .
