I need a government form, so I rang the helpline.

"For such-and-such, press one" - no other options, so I push it.
It rings, it's answered: "Good morning, you are through to BLAH, my name is BLAH, how can I help you?"
"I need a BLAH, please"
"Postcode?"
"BLAH, house number BLAH"
"And your name?"
"BLAH."
"Thank you - it'll be with you in three to five days. Is there anything else I can help with?"
"No, that's all thank you."
"Then thank you for calling, and have a good day. Bye!"
"Bye!"

Total time, about a minute.
An efficient and helpful government? On a Monday?
That's got to be one the signs of the apocalypse, hasn't it?
