How could I have not noticed that the Spanish were nasty rude and the fact they hate the British ?

At one time in the UK the people in the tax office were vile. They have changed now of course and we are all "clients". Not to mention how vile they were in the Social Security offices.

I think civil service people are vile because they have a job for live. But they have improved a lot in the Spanish tax office.

Moving here from Barcelona I've found any functionario that I've dealt with so far have been a breath of fresh air here in Andalucia in comparison

In comparison to Barcelona! That is interesting. But it does just go to show that people are vile at times all over the world and lets not forget what the doctors receptionist were like a while back in the UK. I not know if they are still the same not having been to a doctor for a while in the UK.

I wouldn't bother, Gus. I gave up after reading this:

I have to say that half the time I do not know what you are talking about.


If I don't understand someone's post I don't reply. Seems simple to me. :crazy:

"Simple" is most definitely the word that springs to mind.

Who knows Pamela? There is certainly a hint of split-personality around. ( which is probably why posts are being duplicated :-)
