The most annoying aspect of the entire omnishambles that is Irish Water is that it is ongoing, fractal, and recursive. Take my efforts to get them to TAKE MY MONEY.. which they wont. Is there no end to the inefficiency of this organisation?
I registered, both my main dwelling, and my original family home in Kerry. Im a good citizen. I registered, and gave bank details. So, feeling virtuous, off I went. A few days later I got letters from Irish Water, which among other things, stated in effect “we have those details now, grand” . I blogged about the issues surrounding same here.
Since then I have gotten NO letter, bill, or other communication about my main home. It as though it doesn’t exist. I have gotten two bills from them about the house in Kerry, which barely uses a sup. And now they tell me that I haven’t paid.
It would be more accurate for IW to state “Hi, we haven’t taken the money from your account, because…errr. Oh, and we are chasing you for the smaller bill, while ignoring the larger, which, yes, we haven’t bothered to deal with either”.
It is ongoing, the shambles that keeps on rolling. It is fractal – no matter how close you look the shambles is there, deep and chaotic and infinite. And it is recursive, an ouroboros of inefficiency.
