Random Love (anti-rants)
« on: November 28, 2012, 06:14:35 pm »
Took a phone call out of the blue from Her Majesty's Customs and Excise (our tax people) today.

HRMC - "Hello this is HRMC, please don't be alarmed" (I was)
Me - "Erm Yes"
HRMC - "Did you just import some boots from Canada
Me - "Yes"
HRMC - They were valued extremely high, are you sure the declaration was correct?"
Me - "Well they are super expensive"
HRMC - "They certainly are. this is number I have (gives me number)"
Me - "That's about right, let me double check.........No in fact your number is a little high (he bullshits)"
HRMC - "OK, give me your number and we will use that"

HOLY FECK........

Great thread. And holy cow: are you lucky, G... They must realise by now you make up for at least of 3 % of the UK BNP with all your importing and travelling...

I tip my non-existing hat to Davito. (But if I was wearing one, I'd literally do it.)
Missing some other chocolates due to...well...you can figure it out. Thanks again!!

So I got a call today from my bootmaker; the pair I ordered are now ready- two months earlier than originally scheduled.

Mmmmm, new boots...
