This is a question Council Cunts

Stallion Explosion writes "I was in a record shop in Melbourne, flicking through the vinyl, when I found a record entitled 'Hackney Council Are A Bunch Of Cunts'"

We agree.

Have you been trapped in the relentless petty minded bureaucracy of your local council?
Why does it require 3 forms of ID to get a parking permit when the car in question is busy receiving a parking ticket right outside the parking office?

Or do you work for Hackney Council?

Local council librarian facist - repost for QOTW
Being a nerdy 17 year old I wanted to join the library in the town where I worked as I couldn't get to mine other than Saturday mornings. Actually they did do vinyl rentals as well, this was over 20 years ago.

I had asked about joining and was told I'd need ID someone from work to countersign the application and a company stamp to stamp the application. I didn't live in the county so I accepted their rules.

I turn up with a colleague with a suitably impressive job title and the stamp we used in the drawing office on plans we'd send out and all of my ID. Bearing in mind I'm seventeen and live with my parents.

Snotty woman:

Fill in this form... DONE
You need someone to countersign... MY FRIEND STEPS FORWARD
Ah, you also need a company stamp... OUT IT CAME
And we need some ID... Gave her my local library card, provisional licence and a letter I had from my employers. Everything I had.

Ah, that's no good a provisional licence is not valid ID.

Being a soft git then I'm sure my bottom lip started to tremble, she'd won.., lot's of people looking and smirking.

Up steps my much older friend in a loud voice.


There was no way she was going to let me join. Went back the next day with all the paperwork I had stamped the day before and spoke to someone else and explained the lack of "official" ID.

"No problem son, I'll make up your tickets. By the way your not the first, she is a pain in the arse"...

Just because they are in a position of power doesn't stop them being arseholes. I have since learnt that telling people what they are going to do in a calm firm voice works wonders, as in:

"These are not the droids you are looking for"
