Register Office Farce
Having just been presented with a beautiful baby daughter, we have a legal obligation to register her birth within 42 days.
Not being able to do so before the end of the year, due to work commitments, we tried to make an appointment with the local register office for January, only to be told “Sorry, we can’t make any appointments for next year, we haven’t got a diary yet”
What?! This is the 21st December and you haven’t got a diary for next year? Are you waiting to see if Father Christmas brings you one? In any case, if you haven’t got an actual bespoke diary, what’s wrong with writing it down on a piece of paper?
All the registration of birth is done electronically, so I’m surprised they don’t have an electronic diary anyway.
