Do You Always Mean What You Say?

DO YOU ALWAYS MEAN WHAT YOU SAY?Waiting for a bus, I'm burning to death in this heat.  To make matters worse, I'm dying of thirst.  And I'm so hungry I could eat a horse.  It doesn't help that my feet are killing me and my briefcase weighs a ton.  An earlier bus took forever to arrive, so that was a non-starter.  At least it isn't raining cats and dogs.

Can I Claim It On Expenses?

The Collapse of the EU - Part 2

THE COLLAPSE OF THE EU - PART 2Many people are surprised by the hate between leaders and extremists, as in Brazil, Ukraine and Korea. In many countries, as in Sweden, Austria, the UK, governments do not have sufficient support in the parliament to make true what they promised in their election-campaigns. They and banks lie about the future.

Driving license exchange - round and round in circles!

DRIVING LICENSE EXCHANGE - ROUND AND ROUND IN CIRCLES!I applied to exchange my driving license in 2020. I emailed the required form and received an email receipt and waited.  Then COVID, so I waited. Then I heard there was a backlog, so I waited some more.
