Whatever happened to shredding?

Postby TOPGUMM » Wed Sep 21, 2022 8:29 pm

Dumped the office shredder as it was collecting dust, like the corded hoover in the corner.

Been given some office filing cabinets as they are also redundant.

Fax went yonks ago.

offices are disappearing .

Tried to deal with a Welsh government backed service and it stated there was no phone line communication possible due to shortage of personel ... Took three emails and a month before I had a call back..

Falling apart at the seams it seems.

Nhs and prescriptions would be a killer if things were worse.

alas Nhs and Doctors / consultants continuing reluctance to carry out face to face appointments ,will probably mean thousands more missing early diagnose and / or treatment :headbang:
