So, I spend some of my time at my job fighting it out with fonctionnaires on the phone but i have to admit, the one I had on the phone yesterday takes the biscuit and wins the prize for being totally illogical!
Me: Hello, can I have the. X department please?
Her: ring back tomorrow, it's open between 2 and 4pm.
Me: What? Only between these times on a Thursday? That's crazy.
Her: no, it's open every day between these times. Goodbye.
She hangs up before I have time to say...
But madame, it's now only 3.35pm....
Big fat sigh. Some days, I give up.
