A Sign?

If you look closely at the picture those geese have got pink bottoms – they are flying east with the sunset to their behinds!  I would quite like to just flap my wings and be up there with them!

Today for the THIRD time I have been stopped from accessing my JSA in my bank account.  I have had to cancel my plan of meeting up with Pup’s brother on Sunday because the money I have in my purse needs to be for essentials.  How did I find out? well it wasn’t through communication form the bank!  I went to print off the last couple of documents I needed for my submission to the Ombudsman; it has already cost me £4 I didn’t have to print the stuff off and I needed another £2 worth so I went to the cash machine and couldn’t even get a balance.  I came home went to online banking to find I cannot access that either.

So yet again I have complained to the bank and copied it direct to the Ombudsman with a request that they will accept an electronic submission in the first instance and I can send the original signed document at a later stage.  I also needed to post a claim for interview expenses so the bank’s action is delaying me getting a little income and I need to post a document to my mortgage company relating to possible additional benefit that I may shortly be eligible for that would be paid to the mortgage company to cover interest payments.  So all in all I am not impressed AGAIN with my bank.

If it wasn’t happening to me I would think it was someone’s idea of a sitcom type humour aaaarrrrggghhh!

I was really looking forward to getting out for  a few hours on Sunday too since the neighbours workman will be back on site for the weekend and then peace will be shattered.

So look carefully again at the picture – do you see a sign I might like to send to my bank? a V sign perhaps?  it doesn’t stand for “Victory” nor for “Very Nice” it might stand for “Verily Incompetent”!

If you need to send  a sign to anyone this weekend feel free to borrow my pink bottomed geese to deliver your message!

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
