During a discussion on inheritance tax on today’s Liveline a lady caller diverted from the topic to relate the following story regarding her first water bill. Really hilarious stuff.
My water bill came in on the 30th April, I paid it that day. I had to make a phone call yesterday evening (to Irish Water) to make an inquiry for one of my sons and when I put in my details it said – you owe €64.10.
Hold on a minute, I said, how could I owe that? So I had to go through the whole thing again. Then (on advice) I checked my bank account and discovered that my money was taken out.
I’ve been on to four different people in Irish Water and they don’t know where my money is.
