Going round in circles

Several times these past two weeks I have tried calling my local registry office to book an appointment to give notice.

On all occasions I kept on getting diverted to a recorded message asking would I like to pay a council tax bill?

No I do not!!

How can making an appointment to give notice and paying a council tax bill get misled as being the same?

Just how is that possible?

Is this how married life starts? You say I do and the council chases you for money?

I just wanted to give notice.

On my way to the registry office, I got lost and ended up going round the roundabout twice.

Today has just been mentally tiring!
