We're breaking the law here... didn't mean to but we're definitely bound for the big house, the pokey, the slammer, the clink. We're going to be sent up the river...well, you get the idea. All of this came to light when we received a STERNLY worded note informing us that they knew we were watching television without a license. God forgive us - we didn't know. Well, if that makes us pistol packin' outlaws so be it.
I've been astounded by the way we've been nickel and dimed to death (or is that pence and pennied? Same thing I know...) but this really takes the cake. A license to watch television. Why a license? Should it just be an annual fee - like everything else? And is there a test we'll have to take for this license - because if it includes knowing the cast of East Enders we're done for.
It was explained to us - what exactly this ridiculous license is for and seeing how we rarely watch the BBC - we shouldn't have to pay it. No offense to the programmers in charge of the BBC - but you stink! I wouldn't pay to watch it so it's a good bloody thing it's the law! We're paying it - don't get me wrong - we certainly do not want the Gestapo storming the door as threatened. I'm just saying... a LICENSE to watch television. This one really put me over the edge. Where does it end?
