Having a rant!

So I pay rent each week. I pay my local city council. They take it directly out of my bank account, a standing order, I only pay minimum rent, as I live in what is known as social housing, which means basically that I am considered to have a low income, which I do, so I pay a basic rate of rent.

So each week the rent is taken on Friday morning, my money goes in to the bank at midnight on Thursday going into Friday morning.

My gripe is not having to pay rent, I know we all have to pay for our accommodation and pay where for we’re living. My gripe is with the damn rent office. I got a letter yesterday in the mail stating my last 3 months rent, its like a sorta statement where it says what I’ve payed, how much etc, they send them out to you every 3 months.

I read it and decided I’d ring them to ask if my rent was increased. They have a habit of increasing it at the start of the year, but they didn’t tell me the last time they did it, and then I owed 150 euro before I knew there had been any increase, and I ended up having to pay extra on my rent for months to pay it back.

So the gripe with them is this. They don’t answer their bloody phones in the office! I rang the number on the letter, no answer, it went to voice mail, but the damn mailbox was full so I couldn’t even leave a damn message!

I rang the local city council offices, they put me through to another number, and nothing! No answer! They don’t answer their phones no matter how often you ring! So I’m like, what the hell are they doing in th e office? They cant be just sitting around in there surely?

It annoys me! So now I still am none the wiser! Its so irritating.

  1. Really annoying! But they probably have to drink their coffees before doing anything else. πŸ™ƒ My Mum calls officers like that “coffee drinkers”, a bit mockingly I know but that seems to be true so often, that they just enjoy sitting there in front of the computers chatting to each other and drinking coffee, rather than helping people who need them at the moment. That’s a generalisation but very many seem to be like this and it’s sometimes nearly impossible to get through to them if you’re calling. I hope you finally will though.


  2. How irritating this is and its becoming more and more common unfortunately. I was trying to make a reservation at a restaurant and needed to know if they could accomodate me. I repeatedly called about twenty times in a row trying to get a person to answer the phone. Instead, they sent me a text with curses in it telling me to leave a message! This, they had time for!
