Is that The Right Thing To do?

squeaver Thu 02-Jul-09 15:04:17

Fess up. Tis the only thing to do.

<<resists asking why you had it in the first place>>

shinyshoes Thu 02-Jul-09 15:04:40

oh dear. grin

well at least you did the right thing and put money in an envelope.

MangoJuggler Thu 02-Jul-09 15:04:50

What happened Ginge?

It ought to go back incognito to Passport Agency and you'll have to suck up the £72

Slattern !!

GingerIgnoramus Thu 02-Jul-09 15:04:59

oh counersigning issue.
I have paid
Now if they say" oh i only had a month left" do I expect a refund?

Mamazon Thu 02-Jul-09 15:05:47

tell him, quick!
he may not have gotten round to replacing it just yet, thus saving you both money.
if not then im afraid you'll have to cough up

shinyshoes Thu 02-Jul-09 15:05:54

No ginger don't expect a refund shock

MangoJuggler Thu 02-Jul-09 15:06:17


What are you like eh

sherby Thu 02-Jul-09 15:06:24

Oh you have to give him the money

squeaver Thu 02-Jul-09 15:06:29

You've got the passport - have a look and see how long they had.

MangoJuggler Thu 02-Jul-09 15:06:38

oooh have you been to the tennis yet?

SpawnChorus Thu 02-Jul-09 15:07:19

where did you find it???

smacks of slatternliness to me.

squeaver Thu 02-Jul-09 15:11:07

I once lost my passport. Couldn't find it the night before I had to fly to Spain for a work thing. Me and dh were all over the house trying to find it until 3am.

About a month later I found it in the pocket of a jacket hanging in the hall.

I have never told dh.

I would have thought the £72 plus an apology, plus a bottle of wine for the inconvenience.

blush grin Sounds just like the sort of daffy thing I would do!

GingerIgnoramus Thu 02-Jul-09 15:12:45

I went to the tennis
WELl its more complicated
I sent it to the PO thinking it was dses
they clipped it before they realised it wasnt dsses old one.
He then rang up for a new one, they said " hey we hav had your old one in"
and he didnt tell me!!!
so he would have just absorbed the cost.

it was only when they wrote to me saying "Where is dsses old passport" i thought

Oh ffs

GingerIgnoramus Thu 02-Jul-09 15:13:18

oh god not wine as well?
oh noes

LadyOfWaffle Thu 02-Jul-09 15:15:39

Honesty is the best policy. & Booze.

MangoJuggler Thu 02-Jul-09 15:20:16

No need for wine

well for you praps

Gingerly Thu 02-Jul-09 15:32:04

the shame

pooka Thu 02-Jul-09 15:40:09

Oh how embarrassing!

So glad it wasn't me - I'd be mortified. grin

Still intrigued as to why you actually had the passport in the first place - have just had dd's renewed, and was a case of the counter-signatory just filling in their part of the form with passport number and signing rather than ever letting go of the actual passport.

I agree with the wine plus refund rather than just refund. For the hassle involved.

Gingerly Thu 02-Jul-09 15:40:49

he put it back in the wrong envelope.

pooka Thu 02-Jul-09 16:58:44

Ah well - is like an AIBU by stealth wink

If his mistake, then additional guilt offerings unnecessary.

MangoJuggler Thu 02-Jul-09 16:59:54

heh heh pooka
