so so far this week I have spent nearly 5 hours on the phone to a government department because of THEIR screw ups.....the end result is they say we owe them money but it's their own people who have screwed up and now someone else has to pay....this is beyond a joke...


ok rant over.

What happened, Wicked?
That's if, you're okay with sharing it.

If not, thats okay. I'm sorry your government is messing with you.. I think in some way we all can understand that feelings.

We have a government department here that helps those who can't earn money or work or who are studying....and my older daughter has been at uni for four years....her course finished last year in November and she was going on to do an extra degree this year to qualify her as a maths teacher....so she did all the right paper work and all on time but the system then booted her to a different payment for a couple of weeks and that screwed over some of the bonuses you get being on the study allowance....then today they sent another message saying she wasn't entitled to something that they had already granted her....the issue is, they had all the info and someone said yes and not they realised the mistake and want money back....

it's a constant thing with this department lately....they stuff up but others have to pay for the stuff ups....
