That's ridiculous! Those questions are so inappropriate! Especially after you'd answered some already- it didn't make sense to ask the rest after that!
I hope things get easier @dtuxcomp
@tired16 Thank you. It looks like we may be getting somewhere but I don't want to jinx it, which is why I haven't kept constantly updating the kids just to have to then call them again to say, ah, change of plan
Sadly I've juggled so many of these form filling processes now I'm surprised when one actually makes sense and doesn't keep retrying the same questions from different angles. It would make the process so much simpler to have a system that reacted to answers and discarded upcoming questions that weren't relevant, but the overall systems are designed to be hard to work through so fewer people get through to the end. Call me cycnical
@jesi23 Thank you, yes I've had trouble again with PM's. Could you give me a mention in the thread you've started about it, saves me going hunting
My offer to everyone stands despite Mrs D dying, I am still here if anyone needs a chat or to offload please don't be put off by this thread, if you can't get a PM to me you can always find my email address on my website, or on FB. If you don't have either of those let me know and I'll try to post a readable version of my email address that won't trip the filter on GG.
@jesi23 Oooops missed your second post
I love the idea of them using the energy created by the crem, so much better than it just being wasted.
That sounds like a lovely design for the headstone, it's great if loved ones can do things like that isn't it.
My God ! You really do need to drink some type of alcohol after an interview like that. I'm gobsmacked to be honest, what a load of ******ks. Flaming hell!
@vickyjakesmum I think I showed great restraint not to crack open a beer during the phone call The lady from the HA was stunned at some of the questions and several times offered to take over. It was obvious they were trying to root out anyone with even a vague connection to Mrs D who could be landed with the bill. I understand they have to test claims to weed out abuse but that could have been done in the first 5 mins. People wonder why I don't do anything over the phone if I can direct it to post or email, this is why, you can avoid all this cr@p and have a handy record of exactly what has been communicated.
I am so glad I have the guitar to fall into after all this stuff, I really don't know how I'd cope if I didn't have some kind of non-destructive outlet. Well that and my other mad projects to keep me out of mischief, don't worry there's plenty of them ongoing and tonight I've been doing a QI XL binge, I found a load of them on the PVR
What a flipping insensitive heartless soul wrecking procedure @dtuxcomp. Just when you think you ve preserves some dignity and look like you might be getting up along the government and give you a swift quick in the nuts.
Well done on holding back on the sarcasm. The robots on the end of the phone have either lost all sense of humour or never had it start with. They are also seemingly immune to any attempt to indicate you are **bleep** off with the whole thing. Maybe I’m being thick but what flipping point were they trying to make with the questions about holidays? Surely you either have the cash or you don’t. Guilty of fiddling the system until proven otherwise and then you’re still under suspicion. They just assume they haven’t got you yet but you ll slip up one day.
