I GET a letter from the hospital telling me I have an appointment for June 17 and that I need a blood test beforehand.
So I go to the clinic to sort it and am told I can’t have a blood test until the 19th which, of course, is two days after my hospital appointment.
I try my hardest to explain that is no good but, of course, it doesn’t matter.
The receptionist tells me to go to the Costa del Sol hospital and try for an appointment there. I said, ‘I didn’t know you could do that. Why didn’t you tell me this before?’
Of course, I was told it was because I didn’t ask! I then asked if I could go to any hospital or local clinic and they said ‘of course’ so I went to Las Lagunas and got an appointment straight away.
So, the message is, ask if you want to know anything and don’t expect any information over and above the answer to the initial question.
On the subject of information I found out something this week which is very interesting.
I had to cancel a flight and on telling my pal he asked if I claimed the tax back. I didn’t know what he was talking about.
As you know, when you book a flight a proportion of it is tax so if you don’t use that flight you are entitled to a tax refund.
Now, of course, noone tells you this and believe me it’s not easy getting it back and, of course, there is a service charge but it’s worth doing.
I have been watching the UK election build up and, as usual, the interviews fascinate me.
These politicians are just incredible how they manage to sit there and not directly answer any question.
I saw May being interviewed by Andrew Marr and she was asked the same question three times and she just would not give an answer.
Corbyn is just as bad and on top of that if they do answer it’s usually a pack of lies. Just take May’s promise when she took over as PM.
She insisted there would be no snap election. This, to anyone with any sense, could not be true as she didn’t have her own mandate.
I’m glad I don’t live there anymore. I certainly do not profess to understand politics at all but I know bullshit when I hear it and listening to all of them I’ve heard it all before.
Student fees will be abolished by the Lib Dems and when they had a chance to try and get it done when they were in a coalition with the Tories they never ever mentioned it again.
Now Labour is promising to abolish these fees. But what good is that to the kids that are already £30k in debt?
