Getting a letter from the DVLA with tax it or lose it stamped on the envelope and panicking thinking I'd forgotten to tax one of the vehicles only to find it was a customer satisfaction survey :roll: :evil:

Picking up a punter that wanted a car with a screen, and then see her waiting smoking a cigarette.

Clearly she must have had her lung cancer vaccine recently. :sad:

Inland revenue when filing your tax return for 2019/2020 they remind you to include Seiss payments paid during that year #-o

the first one was MAY 2020 FFS

Ungrateful b******s. :sad:

Took a fella up to the vaccine centre via a free offer the firm is currently offering.

Did not say one word of thanks. :sad:

I heard the 2020-21 year returns will have an extra box for SEISS grants

The ARG (£7500 here) is taxable too, but can be spent on business to reduce tax bill (as can they all i assume)

The SEISS grants have reduced/wiped out universal credit payments each time

companies that quote for jobs when they haven't got a suitable vehicle !!

So just been asked to do trip in the 8 seater down to London in fact the postcode is the woodside estate in Croyden 5 passengers and loads of luggage which the company can't do they haven't a vehicle big enough !

But they have still quoted for it at £140.00 which on round trip mileage is about 60p a mile and involves tolls for the Dartford crossing or spending 4 hours battling through the traffic on the south circular and A23

I have said £175 not a penny less but am pretty sure the customers won't take as they will now think £140.00 is the going rate and am also mindful that this is probably a family travelling when they aren't supposed to so a risk of being stopped by the police

Sky TV not working.

Yes it's a 21st century problem, but it's my 21st century problem.

Heathrow T2 just 4 people trying to process 10000 passengers no wonder it is taking 3 hours

My passenger was telling me in Dubai they have 50 people processing passengers and there are NO delays there

The busiest I have ever seen T2 and as for the only 1 person allowed to meet and greet well I saw one lady with 10 family members to greet her :roll:

No signs on seats to keep people apart no tannoy messages just a complete free for all and if you tried to social distance someone would fill the gap
