About seven weeks ago I posted about my frustrations of dealing with a particular person in authority who evidently wanted a bribe before they would do their job. Well… today I finally got the letter I was after! I wouldn’t have got through it without my colleague Catherine, regular ‘office banter’, and persistently calling on them. Admittedly I wrote the letter for them and saved it on their computer at their request. I was told after I left the office that I completely missed the bribe request at the end: “You give this small person something and then we are done with everything” (referring to his colleague who was much shorter than him). Didn’t even hear it, hence my non-response (probably best). But, with letter in hand, out we walked.
