On Arrival at my new duty station, I was told that there was no Married Quarters available at the station ( convieniently located right outside the main gate !!) and my only alternative was to take one 22 miles away and commute. Not an ideal situation but when removals are behind you, you have to make a fast decision !. So, i now have to commute 44 miles a day along shitty B Roads to get to work - all the time putting mileage on my car, wear and tear, increased insurance because I'm commuting, more servicing ( 6 tyres in 6 months ! ) and to cap it all my wife can't use the car to travel to work as I have it, so she ends up doing shitty local agency work. My Question to all you Fin Peeps out there is: Apart from the measly £5.00 a day Respod I get which barely covers the cost of the petrol at 79.9p a litre - Is it possible to get some sort of allowance or payment to cover the depreciation and wear on my car due to this unwanted commute to work ?? And they won't move me because I need to be in the house a full 6 months before I can apply for a move !! __________________________________________ Why do the bullets have to be hitting you to be effective ?
