    Automated phonecalls. Im trying to ring HMRC because im on the wrong tax code. Trying to call them and i just get an automated women asking me what my call is about so they can direct me. I say tax code they say tax credit. I say why am i on an emergency tax code she says do you have an emergency, just going round in circles now. Ive hung up twice now because im getting so frustrated. I dont know what any of this means apart from what i need to ask. I just want to speak to a real person.




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

    Ring the international number instead. That's what I used to do last year when I needed to ring them and got sick of being on hold all day. You get put through to someone straight away, if they give you any grief about ringing the wrong number, just play dumb and pretend you didn't know.

    Fun fact, with most automated things like that, just keep pressing 0, it'll default you back to a real person eventually. Doesn't work for all of them but i think in all them things i've had to 'speak' to rather than 'Press 1 for...' it's worked right away.

    Why do I feel invisible when trying to give advice about something I actually know about?

    Why do people question the words 'sorry we are fully booked'? No we can't squeeze you in we are fully booked. Where do you want us to put you? On the floor?
    'Have all these people confirmed?' Well they've all booked a table so yes I would assume they are coming. Gah people..
