Doomsday….

According to a very sad scientist, today is the most depressing day of the year. He’s taken into consideration the post Christmas blues, the credit card bills gently flopping on every doormat in the country right about now and the really, really grindingly crap weather…

Added to that, Tony Blair is still in power, my dentist is about to go private, Celebrity Big Brother is still on the telly…… II mean, how could it get any worse?

Easy. The Inland Revenue have sent me a letter, cunningly timed to arrive on my doorstep today, on the morning of the most depressing day of the year. It did. It’s from a Mr T. Watt – and he wants to do an in-depth review of last year’s tax return. They want to look in great detail at the things I’ve claimed for, sifting, sifting, sifting…… It’s so thorough, I think in accountancy circles, it’s called a ‘KY audit’ – they look everywhere, especially in places where the Sun never shines.

Let’s hope they don’t find ‘piles’ - (of cash, obviously).

Well, if they were searching here, they might find piles of dust bunnies, but no cash. None, nadda.

T. Watt?
You made that up!
Good luck with the audit. Eat plenty of garlic and baked beans for when they come round.

Yes, I made his name up - his name is actually Mr Wayne Carr and not Mr T. Watt. Unfortunately, the letter is all too true.

A colleague of Mr Richard Cranium I guess

Remember to look sad - most folks make the mistake of trying to be jolly.
Bad, bad idea. The IR don't do 'Jolly', oh no, no.

It may not be all gloom. I had one of those once and was told that I owed £600.I stalled and a few weeks later I received a cheque from the tax man for £700.
