Paid your rates online lately?

The person who designed the arcane method of making a simple payment to the ACT gov requires either to be hanged alongside Saddam (with photos) or congratulated for cutting down on the use of the Internet.

I am actually half way through this process for the second time.

I used the Internet before these cretins were born and I know that theyeither need to learn how to do things properly or get spanked for being obstructive. (grhhh!)

I had to go to the shopfront to pay for the fence between me and next door (govt property), which I didn’t want, and which wasn’t in that bad a condition anyway. And then when I got their with their letter of demand, the shopfront were rude to me, and asked me for all sorts of job numbers etc which I didn’t have.

This is a couple of years ago though. In hindsight I should have just left after they started finding it hard to accept my money.

Of course I am referring to paying them online as well 🙂

I paid 2 lots of rates and one land tax bill last week in 5 minutes (if that) flat. Don’t see what the problem is?

After I was no longer eligible for a concession on my car rego (as I was working longer hours), I STILL wasn’t allowed to pay by NPay or Aust Post, buthad to go into the shopfront in person to make the first ‘full’ payment. I thought that was stupid (and massively inconvenient).

I went to Canberra Connect Tried “Service Express” Nothing happened. I have just done it again “Service temporarily unavailable – try again later” I will try again tomorrow but I won’t have my wife’s credit card (sigh)

I seem to have been able to get away with paying my rates online recently quite easily. Plus my car registration.

So sorry, Hugo, you do appear to be a bit of an internet doofus.

OK! While we are talking about spanking , maybe you should make the way you make posts a little clearer! (sigh) (You must realise that I was trained in basic programming and only play games with a wumpus)
