Well, at least that was one thing this week that went right eventually. I had an appointment on Tuesday at 10 am. for a job interview. The place I had to go was about half an hour's drive from home, so I set off in good time, and arrived outside the building at 9.45 am. I drove up and down that street, along all the side streets, looking in carparks of other businesses, but there was not a car spot to be found anywhere. By 10.15 I gave up, and parked about a mile down the road, to ring the office and let them know I wouldn't be there. When I told the lady on the phone why, she said "Oh our staff have this problem all the time", to which I responded "if your staff have this problem, what hope do job applicants have?" I told Centrelink not to send me over there again for interviews - it is a waste of time and petrol.
In today's mail I received an absolutely stunning embroidered apron, which I will be be photographing and putting on to my Aprons blog, later on. Also in the mail, I had a letter from Hesta Superannuation. I'd asked my financial advisor one month ago to organise the rollover of my super.funds from Hesta to MLC, which is my primary fund. Since I asked him to do that, I have had three letters from Hesta, all requesting different kinds of paperwork for them to proceed. When I got ANOTHER letter today, asking for something else, I saw red. The poor guy at Hesta really got an earful, and although he explained why it was happening, I still argued that it didn't justify a continual stream of mail asking for something else each time. I said "Why can't you get it right the first time? Why not just list everything you want in one letter, and I could have dealt with it all then. But not this letter after letter after letter".
He was able to take the details over the phone this time, and then informed me that they hadn't received certain paperwork yet from MLC. Oh boy....Mr W. at MLC, are you going to get a tongue-lashing from me very shortly...
