Turning up the heat?

Picture of the envelope

Yesterday I found another of these annoying "we tried to deliver a piece of mail but it requires a signature" notes when I came home. This morning I duly drove to the post office to sign for it and it pick it up. It takes about 15 minutes to get there, so I was hoping for something interesting. I was to be swiftly disappointed...

If you cheated and looked at the envelope you already know what is coming now. Yes, it was another letter from my good friends at TV Licensing. Considering they had sent it by registered mail I was expecting something exciting when I opened it, something like "We'll send the boys round if you don't pay up" or "We'll park our famous detector vans in front of your house for the next month". No, nothing like it. Just another boring letter.

If you're still watching TV without a licence, watch out. Eh? Still watching TV? There hasn't been a TV or any other device to receive or record TV programmes (for example, a VCR, set-top box, DVD recorder or PC with a broadcast card) at this address for more than a year. Watch out for what? The TV Licensing Officer you have been telling me would visit me for almost a year now? Yawn...
