One day left

Tomorrow is the final filing day for tax returns for the tax year 2005-2006. If, like me, you haven't started yours yet - you'd better spend the day today making sure that it's done!!! I wonder how long it's going to take me?

I dislike the tax man almost as much as I dislike traffic wardens. Other people/organisations that I dislike intently are....British Gas (think of a number and then double it, double it again and send her the bill - ha ha ha) Petrol stations (daylight robbery) staffed by ignorant folk who won't look you in the eye as they swipe £50 off your switch card...so rude!, NPower (3 days to get through - always held in a queue listening to crap music...."your call is important to us but we are currently experiencing delays. Please hold......") Whoever it is that runs the speed camera network, and snotty show secretarys at show jumping and dressage events (most of them are lovely but there's one or two who get power crazed when handed an entry list and a ball point pen). I also dislike pensioners, and mums with small children in supermarkets - especially during the lunch hour rush or after 6pm..they have all day to do their shopping so why are they meandering round when people who work nip in during their lunch hour or after work? and finally cheeky people on the roads who "nip" out in front of you from a side road when you are in a slow queue...if they wait patiently I will let them out but if they poke their nose out and inch forward I shout at them and don't let them out!!!!

That's all I can think of on my list of "people I dislike as much as the tax man" but I'm sure there's more. Anyway, can't stop, got a tax return to fill in and send off!!!

  1. You've never got on with the Tax-man have you? :-)

    Do you include Victoria and Alice when you say you don't like mum's and small children?

  3. I don't object to Mums and small children per se...just when they are in supermarkets after 5.30pm and between 12 noon and 2pm. Same with pensioners. The last thing I want when I have been at work all day is to be stuck behind some cauliflower head (oap) or some harrassed mum with a screaming toddler. I like to nip in, get my stuff and nip out again!!! You know that I'm not very good on patience!!! Anyway - Victoria is very good as when she used to come to Sainsbury's it was always mid-morning or mid-afternoon. That's excellent!!!!
