Rates rebate Paradox

LAST month I received a postage-paid letter from the Shire of Toodyay checking that I was still entitled to the Senior’s rebate on my rates.

This has given me new life because obviously there is some way that the disease of old age that I have can be reversed; all I have to do is find out how that happens, but no-one at the shire can tell me.

Unless I have been singled out for attention, hundreds of others would have received the same letter and because none of us has got any younger, I guess the only course open to us is to fill out the form, pay our rates and think about the wonders of old-fashioned bureaucracies.
