There is very little that makes me angry. I'm a very un-angry person. I was going to say that there is only one thing that makes me angry, but I've just thought of another one.
So: I can only think of two things that make me angry. I am capable of ranting for some time on either topic. I have tried my hardest not to mention them here. I guess I'm just not strong enough.
Why am I charged money to park my car outside my own house. Yes, it's a 'Controlled Parking Zone'. That's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just that there's no reason for this street to be one. There are zones of uncontrolled parking closer to the station and closer to the shops. My road seems to be an anomaly. A salient street of special value to the council.
Now, the one I was going to rant about was the BBC licence fee. Unless you live in the UK you might not know that in this country, in order to own a TV you have to pay the BBC 12O pounds a year WHETHER YOU WATCH THE BBC OR NOT! It's that simple. That's all it comes down to.
Is that fair? What if I had to pay the Chinese restaurant up the road an annual fee despite the fact that I might be allergic to Chinese food? I don't want to rant any more. Once I get going it's hard to stop. But is that fair? Is it?
