"I'm still waiting for permission for a poo"

You may remember this previous blog, in which I had a letter telling me the blindingly obvious, my water supply is going to kill me and Mrs. Beetwaste if we drink it untreated. Basically, the council had deemed it necessary to test the water, and inform us it was rubbish and they'll be testing it again soon.

Well, they've been back. We got a letter from Harrogate council. The envelope was addressed to 'The occupier', so someone must've had a word that some people have moved house. Mind you, when I opened the letter it was addressed to the chap down the road. It also stated that they'd been back on 14th June, which is strange because it's actually July.

Anyway, our water is still more toxic than the Sellafield waste outlet, and due to some 1991 'Not drinking really bad, poisonous water act", we have to have a treatment system fitted. We have to inform them when it's done, and they will come and test the water from our own house tap. No doubt we'll have to pay for having the water tested, even though they've been twice and not tested my house supply yet, just the supply from further up the road. They've even provided a nice list of people who can fit the system.

Well, here's the deal. I've already got a system fitted, that is meant to kill off 99.99% of bugs. No-one has actually asked me if I already have this thing fitted yet, they've just assumed I'm stupid. So, there's absolutely no chance whatsoever that I'll be getting in touch with them, especially seeing as they've not even managed to get my name and address details right yet. I'm waiting for the letter telling me that if I don't fit this thing, I'll have to go to court and get fined squillions of pounds for not having done it.

Is there any aspect of daily life that these idiots aren't involved in? GO AWAY. FIND SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO DO. Perhaps I should send an e-mail, saying only that sentence. And, I'll sign it 'The Occupier' as that's what they think my name is!

I'll keep you posted.
