Can't you get your dad to do it all for you and buy him lunch as a thank you?
You're right it is a pita - I just look up and take their top ten and then leave the money there for years - can't be arsed tarting.

I enjoy doing it, when im in the mood.
Use the same password with a digit different on the end.

at "he would be responsible if the bank of england rate dropped etc". I understand his feelings but perhaps you could ask him to come up with a shortlist with pros and cons for you and then you make the decision? I find all financial stuff dead boring, too btw. I used to do the ticking off of receipts on statements but that's about it. I'm back doing it again but have a huge backlog so I've got the kids (12 and 13 yrs) helping me.

Surely there's no risk for your dad - it's just building society accounts? or print off moneysavingexpert and just highlight the ones you want him to open for you.
Make sure if you have to go into branches for anything - do it early in the morning - otherwise you'll spend all day in a blooming q!

I've just cleared out 2 years worth of old paperwork - just have to shred it all now! Nice feeling though with nice shiny new lever arch folders with only a couple of years worth of stuff.

I hate it too

got a new ISA last year (special bonus rate etc etc)
always forget how much is in it
can never remember farking security details
get locked out of online access
have to ring and ask and they think I am an idiot
(they never want easy memorable info, they want a 7-digit farking PIN)

I always think we have everything sorted then the exhaust drops off the car / Grandma bankrolls the holiday / the boiler explodes / Great Aunt Mary dies and it all shifts round again.

DH handles most of it, I just keep a slush fund and clear it out once a year.
