    Joe Citizens - new story, regarding Motability scooters. My favourite!

  • The Un-Civil Servant

  • BB

    BB is Bureaucratic Bullsh*t.
    It can also stand for Big Brother.
    In the civil service, they are one and the same.

  • What’s it all about?

    Bureaucracy is an umbrella term for official incompetence; that is, incompetence which has officially been sanctioned as being good practice. No-where in the world is that more apparent than in the British public sector. Misadministration of public services is the backbone of every government led department.
    Trust me, I’m a civil servant.

  • It’s a disease

    Bureaucracy runs rife through the corridors of power like a child riddled with ADHD, high on fizzy pop, crisps and jelly-beans.

Sunday already?!

I had every intention of checking in here on Friday.  Only I had an urgent appointment with a bottle of vodka.  It was an impromtu appointment admittedly, but not one that came as a surprise.  Stress?  You don’t know the half of it!  So, here I am on Sunday morning just letting you know I am still here and your country is safe.

I can hear murmers from some of you.  “What’s he on about – stress?  He works in an office and answers the phone all day.”  Well, I can’t expect Joe Citizen to understand entirely.  You have to be here to feel it.  But I have had a few jobs in my time.  I was in the forces for over ten years and security for a little while after that.  I have been through a few things I don’t ever want to experience again and had my personal safety compromised on a daily basis.  Even so, I have never felt the stress and dread and utter abject depression I feel in this job.

Last week was one of the worst.  We were being ‘listened in to’ again and every customer that I got was from a mental asylum.  My very soul was ravaged.  Honestly, at one point if I’d have had a gun, my head would still be being cleaned from the wall.

Tomorrow is Monday – it starts again.  I will endeavour to give you all a greater insight into out customers.  I won’t be short of examples.
