Thank you for informing us….

Noon today and I am beginning to think of what to make for lunch.On the way to the kitchen I hear a familiar clatter in the hall. Ah! The postman, now I wonder what delights he has brought me today.

This one I want to share with you.

I have not had a television for the past 8 years. The Licensing people KNOW that because they pestered me with letters a number of years ago. Eventually a representative called and since he recognised me as I did him, he agreed that I was telling the truth.

He actually declined my invitation to come into and inspect my home for a television.

About two years ago more letters arrived and at that point I filed them in the shredding machine.

So here we go again…

I find the letter very amusing for several reasons.

  1. The first line is a lie – I have not been in touch with them recently.
  2. we find that 50% of people do need a licence” – which 50%, top or bottom half? 😉
  3. They check in case I have moved – If I had moved I would not be reading this letter.

Have I moved?Am I still Grannymar?

Do they still make black & white televisions?

Service with a Smile…

My brother who lives in Dublin, phoned me a short while ago.He was back from his morning routine walk and purchasing a newspaper at the local petrol station shop.

A foreign visitor was ahead of him in the queue and on reaching the desk he asked for €5 worth of gas…..

The guy at the till smiled, farted and gave him a receipt.
