A few months ago I had the .. in this instance 'good' fortune to receive a tax self assessment form from the nice people at the tax office. In my infinite wisdom I tootled off to my local office to enquire why I had had this such form as I was employed full time and had been so for many years. They had no idea why I had received it and I made an appointment to go and take all my P!! forms in, make myself at home, basically have a nice comfortable chat to try and sort this quandary out. It came to light that my tax code hadn't changed from when the kiddies were wee tots and I did a stint at self employment.. it was a brief encounter, but this had appeared to go unnoticed that I was still on that said tax code. To cut a long story short... and not bore you all with the sordid details of my private stuff.. today I went back to the tax office, got mistaken for being a man ( I had my work uniform on, woolly hat pulled down, jacket zipped right to the top) trousers.. it has been pissing it down all day here, I'd just come straight from work.. I'd been up since 5a.m to start work early so I could leave in time to get to the tax office) anyways.. she thought I was my husband who'd arrived to represent me!) I removed my hat and added ' no love... I am Mrs. Thompson.' At this point in the conversation she blushed! We all made a light joke of it.... but we had to go through it on the way out again!! She still blushing!! I said you should see me in all my m'bike gear, they all think it's a man underneath!! Are you smiling whilst readin this? Feel free to laugh... humour is what you crave so fuckin laugh!! ;) It will be 'ME' who will still be laughing when the cheque arrives .... you still wanna laugh?
After alot of form fillin in, signatures signed, dates dated. Duplicate forms signed, dated etc etc.. she added up just how much she thinks I should be getting back...... put it like this if I didn't have dental repair to pay for... I could pay for the tickets for the two of us to Canada next year!! I'm so happy now I've got the forms filled in. She just flew through them, a tick here, a tick there... I just gotta wait for the money to go into my account, then and only then will I be happy! So I'm guessing there is a 'tooth fairy' after all ;)
