    Default Why is the world full of Jobsworth's..

    I had to apply today for my Swiss Driving License...

    What a bucket of aggro that was!!

    And all because of the UK Council's staff

    All i needed was a stamp on a form that was written in German, and it signing and dating..Easy, not too hard is it...

    Well, it took the Council Offices on Dunstable an hour to sort out and in that time they had to find a german Translator to translate it to make sure they knew what they were signing, wanted to know why i was applying for a Foreign License, why was my UK one not sufficient. Not that it was any of their business either!!

    And after all the faffing about, she signed it and dated it!

    Why is the world full of such Jobsworths!!

    So if I turned up with a form in, say, Polish and asked you to sign it you would? Without understanding what you just signed for?

    Your right, and it was more the asking of questions about why i was applying for it and why wasnt my UK one sufficient that i found strange. Had i been in the DVLA or a Police Station the the questions would have been pretty relevant, but not in a Electoral Role Department of the County Council surely?

    Off topic - but how long can you drive a foreign car on British roads ? Some poles live near me, been here a year or 2, still on polish plates - I presume no road tax ??

    Switzerland is outside the EU, and for HGV's you have to have a Swiss Driving License. A close friend who works for the same company has been nicked twice in the last 10 days on the Swiss French Border for a non Swiss License.

    It doesnt really answer your question, but that is as much as i know.

    How do you think Labour can constantly spout on about unemployment getting lower, while letting every Tom, Dick or Abdul through the doors? Easy, they create job after penpushing job in areas like Health and safety and all the other government departments, with their sole aim being to justify their pointless existense, Meanwhile making average Joe's life a friggin misery......
