    Oh, Jann that sounds crazy. I hope that nothing else goes wrong in terms of money!

    I'm trying to set up this Open University thing. But it turns out I need to photocopy my birth certificate and then have some professional certify it. People suggested my family GP, but he was recently arrested and thus, I don't have one at the moment. Something about a replacement being brought in... Madness. I'm at a loss. I don't know quite where to go.

        Gosh, those pics of you and Martin sure inspired the arties around here.





        and...


        because I can't stop doing it every time I see them. (see, there I go again).


        *waves at LJ* Oh, has she gone to bed now? Poxy time zones. Although, the way the Woohoo house is filling up it's probably a good thing we're not all trying to sleep at once.... "There were ten in the bed and the little one (that's Val) said roll over, roll over..."

        (well it's better than the worm song that's been stuck in my head ever since I set the wormery up. )




        Woohoo on AT5... (there it is again. )


        *huggles Jann for registration woes* It must be so much harder when you're not in your own country.

        Argos resolution centre keep trying to contact me (probably about the cheap'n'crappy bookcase they ballsed up delivering - twice). I cancelled the order, they said they'd refund me; not much more to say than that is there. *ignores phones*
        Mind you, perhaps I should; Sainsburys sent me £15 e-voucher for mangling my eggs and squishing my apple juice, with the instructions to "spend it on something nice"... thank you I think I will.

          How sad is it that I grinned at that?

          Anyway, I think if you're of that nature, you should call up Argos and tell them how pathetic they've been and clearly their idea of customer service is ridiculous. If you're off that nature...

            Your GP was arrested?

            OK, I won't ask....


            You can probably get someone like your HR manager to do it? I used to get my store manager to do my passport pictures. Unless they specifically state it has to be a doctor/lawyer etc. my understanding is so long as it's someone reliable and professional who has known you for a couple of years and can verify you are that person? Surely that ought be be ok?

              Yes, for ABH on his wife.

              There's a list of professionals to choose from. Like lawyers, medical doctors, minister of religion, police officer, prison officer, etc. I would have gone to HR if they were on there, but they don't seem to be.

              It may sound daft, but I don't know where to find these people!

                Crikey ! *hugs Wendy*

                And it's not daft! I have this problem all the time. The list of people you are allowed to get this information signed off by seems to be getting smaller and smaller. I'm sorry but I for one at the time of my last important bit of information (I think personal license last year) did not know any doctors or lawyers well enough for them to sign for me! And you can't get things signed by family members, most close friends, spouses, boyfriends/girlfriends...it's just crazy!

                  This is exactly my problem. I just don't know what to do, and the clock is ticking because I decided late and I only have a week to find somebody and send it all off. I can still do the course if I don't, but I won't get financial help. And that matters. Lots! They seem to think I know all these kinds of important people. I don't.

                    Exactly! Them seem to think we will (or our parents will) have garnered a selection of important and prestigious friends and colleagues in a relatively short space of time! I would offer to sign them for you but I'm pretty sure they won't accept my signature!

                      They certainly did

                      We do seem to have attracted a bit of attention lately don't we? Wonder why that is?

                      Try contacting them and explaining your problem, they may be able to suggest a few alternatives that are not actually on the list

                        Thanks *hugs* But you need to fit into one of the categories. Unless any of you are a permanent civil servant? no? I don't even know It's laugh or cry. I choose laugh.

                        Exactly, they do seem to think we've all managed to get ourselves some fabulous links in the community. Pfff. I just get on with life, crazy.

                        Edit: Jumble, calling them may be the only option.

                        And yay on AT5

                          Sadly not . Dave is a temporary civil servant but not sure that wood help .

                          Civil Servants apply to anyone who works in the government or for a quango I believe so do you know anyone who works for the environment agency, nhs, highways agency, council...there's loads!!

                            Jann sorry you're having all that hassle But I'm sure you'll get it all sorted and settle into your new life *sends extra squishy WooHoo hugs*

                            *looks at post count* I need to stop chatting, get my act together and make something special pretty soon!!!

                            Before all these new pics get used so much everyone gets sick of them.......

                              Hmmm, I have a friend who works with the Revenue and Customs....

                              EDIT: After texting her, it turns out she's a permanent civil servant, so I've asked if she can do it and am waiting for a reply. She lives in Lincoln but w/e, it's a step in the right direction!!!

                                That sounds promising *crosses fingers*
