    Default No wonder businesses don't bother

    Our company bought another company yesterday (100% outright)
    We've been planning it for some time, but yesterday was completion

    So today had to setup the transfer of bank accounts, as they were using a different bank (which is quite rare)
    I started this at 08:30 and that is me just finished it...
    I wasted a lot of time filling in items my (business) bank already know about us
    So I phoned the Relationship Manager and he confirmed the new form had already been complained about
    However he advised it only needed to be completed once, and any future changes would be just the specific pages...

    I then pointed out there was an entire page with just boxes and rows, very vague instructions, but no actual example
    This would then apply specific rules to any of the eight account signatories
    He advised me to ignore this page, as they could copy in the existing rules from the existing bank account
    So why couldn't they have done this to start with!
    ie Print out the forms with the information they already have (grey these boxes out) and I then fill in the remaining ones where information is required

    Just waiting for the flack from these former (new) employees now...
    No doubt when their first payslips arrive the complaints will flood in (as they were paid yesterday, but that was the responsibility of their former employer

    On the plus side, I now like doughnuts...

    I think if I asked some of our directors to fill envelopes with cash, I'd end up with...

    The last time I received an envelope with cash, it hadn't even been sealed
    Being a Scot, I reused the envelope...
