I have been asked to give a talk for an organization which is fine, but it's in Luton and the only practical way i can get there would be by car or (their suggestion) taxi.
So they have suggested that I get that sorted and claim the travel expenses back which they say will take around a month - so I would have to loose £50 odd for a while. Which when you don't have it is a fair amount.
Why? - by definition most people in my situation don't have that spare. When the local council wanted me to do the same thing they organised a taxi for me and paid for it in advance.
Anyway I will no doubt pay it and go as it will be a very useful experience.
Pah I guess it's just me being a goit.
