I'm a bit late paying a lump of tax, so the conversation I had today with a member of the Inland Revenue came as some light comic relief.
“Hello, I'd like to make a payment.”
“I'm sorry, you can't do that.”
“Oh, er, I don't understand…”
“Only joking! You need a sense of humour to work here!”
Oh yes, very droll. They still want the full amount…
