How's this for funny this is a phone conversation I had with the council.!! M is me, C is council...
M: Hi my name is Handsome Bob I have just received a council tax demand from you, would you like the ref number.
C: Yes that would help.
M: Ok it's 999666.
C: Wait one second while I get your acc up on my computer, ah here we are Handsome Bob what can I do for you.
M: Just wanted to inform you that I live on my own 😔😔 which means I'm entitled to a discount.
C: Ok let me amend your details, you are the sole occupant yes.
M: Yes thats correct.
C: No one else lives with you.
C: So you dont have any lodgers or friend's or family staying with you.
M: Errr no like I said I live on my own.
C: You are sure about that 100% .
M: Are you being serious I've told you I live on my own.
C: No need to get upset Mr Bob just doing my job, ok you do realise that because you say you live alone you are entitled to a council tax discount.
M: Pfffff yes that's the reason I rang you.
C:Just trying to help Mr Bob.
M: Thanks very helpful of you.
C: No problem thats what I'm here for.................. there you go Mr Bob you will receive an amended demand in the post our records have been updated.
M: Thank you.
