Honest to Christ, theres no end to this Bin charges nonsense. They've stopped collecting our bins *again* over non payment, despite the way it was all ... well.. *paid* a month or two back and now they're claiming we owe them for 2004 even .... sod it.

Edit: The gist of the "conversation" was:

Me: Hello, you are not collecting my bins. Why is this?
Them: Okay, Mr Thomas Doyle.. you have not paid your charges since 2004.
Me: I have no idea who Thomas Doyle is, it should be under either "Myname" or "Landlord'sName".
Them: We have no record of either of those, that bin is not registered and you owe us charges dating back to 2004.
Me: Those charges were paid a couple of months back.
Them: That was for 2005, you owe us for 2004.
Me: I.... *gak*... But the bins were being collected up until last week, how do you explain that?
Them: You owe us for 2004.
Me: But... It was all paid in full, then you collected the bins again, then you stopped.
Them: you owe us for 2004.
Me: But we PAID that, two hundred quid or something?!
Them: That was for 2005, you owe us for 2004.
Me: Die in a fire.

Keep an eye out for me on the news tonight. "Man goes ballistic in corporation waste management offices" should be the headline.

So... further to my last post - I got home to find that the *other* bin, (we have two, only one is registered) the one that isn't registered, the one that contained our asshole hippy neighbour's garbage, the one that I couldn't open without wanting to be sick - was emptied. Then the sun came out from behind the clouds and bathed me in warm golden sunshine and the birds burst into song in a fit of unparalleled and unjustified melodrama. I mean *seriously* who else has birds burst into song and beams of golden sunshine all around him when he discovers a niggling irritation has been resolved?

Of course, to balance things out I walloped my right knee with my keychain and then walloped the left one on my desk when I sat down to type this so when I stand up I fully expect to find I've broken them both. Still, for now I'm back on top of the world, listening to Mr Andrew WK and setting myself up for an early night to get over this coldy... achey.. thing.

PS gothwalk, I should be getting the first two episodes of series two of Lost tomorrow, you'd have had them ages ago only ... well, you know I can't manage the simplest tasks without annoyances and drama.
