If you don't like bad language, look away now.
I've had to deal with officialdom today, both on the phone and online....it's taken several hours, is nowhere near resolved and I'm fed up to the back teeth with the absolute shittyness of it all. I've been passed from pillar to post on the phone, given several different numbers to ring, kept on hold for ages until I gave up in sheer frustration. The recorded message kept saying every few minutes that one could try the website....well I did, and guess what, the thing I needed can't bloody well be done online, because our situation didn't conform to the set protocol in the online form. So was told that you have to do it by phone! Or in person....only face to face appointments aren't taking place right now because of covid restrictions....so use the website or phone!
I just wanted to smash both the damn computer and phone to bits and scream my head off.
I know it's not my husband's fault, he's severely dyslexic and can't deal with forms and paperwork, so I've always had to do it. But as I've got older I find it more difficult, my head feels more woolly and it just gives me a king size bloody headache, especially when it's not straightforward and everything seems designed to kick me in the shins.
And I've got to go through it all again tomorrow!
This is connected to the 'good news' I mentioned a few posts back, which is turning out to be nothing of the sort.
There are times when it feels like absolutely bloody nothing goes right for us, and I'm so sodding sick and tired of it.
