Paperwork

In blogging I have an unwritten rule that I should be always cheery and positive, but then why? life is not always cheery and positive and when sometimes I really do not feel that way I need to let off steam so here goes with another rant.

I do not like paperwork at the best of times, let’s face it who does?  However it has to be done.  Here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House it is like any other business, forms to fill in and returns to make and statistics to email.

I spent the day on the computer.  In amongst frustration of work, aimlessly wandering between Skype and Facebook, where one Italian friend commented on the chilly weather now coming into central Italy “Ma un muro tra la siberia e l’europa no eh?…” which made me chuckle, especially when a friend of his accused him jokingly of being a racist 😉

What did not make me chuckle is the waste of time in sending off statistics for yet another government department.  I fill in a form of my own design, (for there is no standard issue form) and send the form off to the relevant office where they manually transcribe the data onto another ‘master’ form, which is probably then transcribed again at head office. What a waste of time, and talk about jobs for the taking…..

I suppose my lack of sense of humour results from being let down very badly by someone who I trusted, inevitable I guess, I can be a bad judge of character, and I HURT  and that is not the best thing to happen when cold winter is fast approaching and yucky paperwork is mounting up.

Thank goodness tomorrow is another day…..
