Noon today and I am beginning to think of what to make for lunch. On the way to the kitchen I hear a familiar clatter in the hall. Ah! The postman, now I wonder what delights he has brought me today.
This one I want to share with you.
I have not had a television for the past 8 years. The Licensing people KNOW that because they pestered me with letters a number of years ago. Eventually a representative called and since he recognised me as I did him, he agreed that I was telling the truth.
He actually declined my invitation to come into and inspect my home for a television.
About two years ago more letters arrived and at that point I filed them in the shredding machine.
So here we go again…
I find the letter very amusing for several reasons.
1) The first line is a lie – I have not been in touch with them recently.
2) “we find that 50% of people do need a licence” – which 50%, top or bottom half? 😉
3) They check in case I have moved – If I had moved I would not be reading this letter.
Have I moved? Am I still Grannymar?
Do they still make black & white televisions?
