Anyone had any annoying experience, making contact with the Post Office Call Centres? , local Councils, Social? I'm trying to come back up after a bad time, and can only manage to get a Post office account at the moment. To satisfy the local Council that I am indeed a war pensioner and not getting overpaid, I had to contact the Post Office. Post Office call centre?....Helpful...a bit, efficient... certainly. Polite, friendly, NO. Dismissive, arrogant and deserving a kick up the ass? definitely. It seems that service, hard times and status. resulting from HMF service make most people think you're a loser. While we're at it, anyone about to see the local Council for the first time, good luck....Civvies....d#ckheads half of them.
