    I've been trying to pay tax I owe for the past couple of weeks and HMRC's website won't work and the nearby supermarket has moved a bunch of things so i don't know where they are anymore

      Everyone asking to borrow money cause they can't manage their finances and I'm the only one in my immediate family that has any savings, while the rest of them live in a perpetual cycle of "get the money, spend the money, get the money, spend the money".

      I accept that I have to pay it, i just wish they'd let me correct it with an easy phone call rather than use a website that doesn't work:P

      Having to call up for a doctor's appointment since my mum won't do it for me any more

      Plus it was a hassle having to call up companies telling them my new married name. I've still yet to change the name on my provisional

      Not matching up to other proper adults and your parents when they were your age. Feeling like a child.

      Have you had no luck when you tell them no?

      I've found it surprisingly easy so far, a few companies let me do it on twitter:P I've got my provisional to sort this week, then my passport once i get my certificate back but that's it. Does your doctors not have online patient access?

      It takes a while getting used to a work routine, you could go paperless so at least you can access all your statements easily?

      It's that balance of being able to buy stuff but not too much stuff:P

      ikr, I've seen routine developing though, over the past month, which is pretty good especially with college too.
      I considered going paperless when first opening my bank account, but I tend to keep them in a folder, and write on them in pencil to know what I spent that month (if you get me,)

      Bless I'm so glad my GP surgery is about 50m walk away. It's quicker to walk there than making a call.

      As someone else said - living alone.

      I moved to uni a month ago and still haven't registered with my local doctor. It's literally only a 7 minute walk away but because it's so close it seems like so much effort going out "only do to one little thing".

      It's not really an option, tbh. They always seem to get themselves into some sort of financial s***hole and I don't really want to see them turning to loans with extortionate APR and stuff like that. I have no trouble saying no if it's not for stuff they actually need, but it's just not in me to sit back and watch them get into debt or go without.

      Car insurance renewals. I get an extra years no claims bonus and expect to receive a lower premium but instead it goes up by £200. Then I call them saying I can get it £400 cheaper elsewhere so they drop it by £400.

      Same phone call every year

      My online banking can make you a graph of where your money went, it's pretty nifty if not slightly depressing
