Was somewhat alarmed to find a letter from the Japanese national tax agency with my name and address handwritten, which is a sure sign of Ominous Tax Issues very likely related to a SNAFU earlier in the year by my accountant, anyway after scanning the tax legalese turns out I paid too much and will get a refund (or more precisely not need to pay as much for the next bill due).  :claphappy:

Well that's a good result.  :thumbsup:

I had a similar panic attack a few days ago, when a letter arrived with a window envelope, NSW sheriff.

I thought, what  :poop: am I in now.

Turns out it is a call to juror duty in the next 12 months.

Of course, it could be one of those 'sting' operations where they round up a large group of low level law breakers in one big scoop, and chuck 'em in the slammer for a day or two.

A Sting operation you say? Are you saying he is an alien, a legal alien, an Englishman in New South Wales?

Oh, not that kind of Sting.

I'll get my coat.

Apparently Australian passport forms ask you if you have any convictions.  I didn't realise it was still compulsory  :D

I don't know why, but I feel that that comment was a personal attack on other members, (no names mentioned), who try to bring a bit of light-hearted humour into others lives.  Not that I am taking it personally of course.  The wet streaks on my cheeks are tears of laughter - I am not crying,   :no: :P

P.S. Another one added to the 'Groaners' thread.  :)

Can we assume the next question on the form is "Do you have the courage of your convictions?" :D

Today I printed out and posted a letter. The one giving HR my final date at work and early retirement. Dec 31st is my last day as a capitalist slave. Yay..... and I've got lots of holiday to use up before that date 8)

Now if it would just stop raining I might actually go out and celebrate, but it's a bit.. wet. In fact it's been so wet that the front fell off a house being repaired over the road in the last big storm, and the local hospital is best accessed by canoe today.

Good for you Sir! I retired at Christmas last year and because of holidays I had to take, I only worked an average of one shift a week for about 3 months - lovely. Enjoy your retirement.  :beers:
