Dealing with banks

Dear Sir,
Recently I checked on the internet to see if my bank had paid my life insurance. With no surprise to me, it hadn’t been paid. I rang the bank and was told my account had a block put on it, until I went to any branch and signed a declaration that I was still alive.

I have to do this from time to time, just in case my family help themselves to my monthly pension of 120 something euros. The thing that worries me is how come the pension office have access to my account, obviously know how much I have in there and what the blooming heck gives them the right to deny payment of my direct debit.

Also, it would have been good manners on the bank's part to ring me, rather than let it go on and on without paying a very important direct debit, which I obviously pay bank charges on.

Dear Sir,
After reading today’s letter, I’ve heard it all now. Alistair is wanting a ball. Imagine if others wanted one - at 40-50 euros each. The idea is you watch the ball not take it home with you. They sell them in the club shop.

Surely you could buy him one. What next? Perhaps you could take home the nets or even all the kit. Come on, get real.
