Tuesday 9th May 2017 – I Slowly Rotted At Erdington Customer Service Centre (aka Erdington Advice Centre) For An Hour

I had to take a document to Erdington Customer Service Centre (aka Erdington Advice Centre) today, for Rent, Housing benefit & Council Tax purposes. I couldn’t go as early as I’d have liked. I took a ticket from the dispenser, then I sat and waited for half an hour until my number was called. Then I had to sit and wait for another half an hour for my document to be scanned off.

Ridiculously, this service is only provided on Tuesdays and Thursdays, despite the centre being open 5 days a week.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears, and have pretty much lost any faith I ever had in the British Justice/Tribunals system. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've had numerous interactions with the DWP, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. Over the last few years, I have endured a conveyor belt of shit decisions from HMCTS. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
