Woop woop it’s da sound of da Police…

I just can’t believe the absolute unbelievable stupidity I experienced this morning trying to sort out my producer. The background is I keep showing up as having no insurance, so I got a producer last Thursday. “Simple” I thought, I’ll just pitch up early this week and get it sorted. Should be a simple in and out job. How wrong I was…

So it’s 7:30 am….

First Police Officer: Checks the MOT certificate and says “Ok, insurance looks fine” I thought it’s best I just shut up and let him do his job. Sadly he can’t find “The Book” so has to call someone else down.

Second Police Officer: Spots that the first guy had only checked the MOT and takes a look at the certificate and says “This is not a valid certificate as the paper isn’t thick enough”. What fucking difference does the thickness of the paper make?!? “Real certificates come on thick paper with like a stamp on it, this is just a print out”. I bit my tongue as I don’t want to get into an argument as it’s not worth the hassle. So using the little brain power available to them, the bright spark decides to call up the insurance company to check my policy, but with it now being 8am, they are of course shut. “Sorry sir, you will have to come back in an hour when they open so we can call and confirm your details.”. Fair enough, time to go to the gym and return later on.

Now it’s 9:30am…

Third (Stern Looking) Police Woman: “Sorry sir, we can’t accept your certificate as the issue date only shows the issue time and not the issue date”. “Shit” I thought as I hadn’t noticed this at all. “Well let’s just call them up and confirm the issue date and that I have valid insurance”. “Sorry sir, we have to see a certificate”. Well fuck me, I’ll just go home and print another one off then I thought. I just don’t understand, is the point of the producer to prove I have insurance or I just have a piece of paper. What absolute bollocks. So I mention the fact my 7 days is up tomorrow and that I’ll be lucky to get a replacement in time by then. “You will have to go to court then”. Ugh, I turn around and leave.

But what a complete waste of everyone’s time and money when a simple minute or two on the phone could sort it all out. Arse…
