The convenience reduction in this case being that the Hydro Electric shop now doesn't take Pay Point payments on Saturdays, only Monday to Friday. Pay Point is designed for all kinds of payments, not just energy bills. I work during the week. If it wasn't for the small detail that I have each Friday afternoon off, it would now be impossible to pay my phone bill.
Not that this is earth-shattering/ insightful/ worthwhile, but it simply has to be recorded for all eternity in case any future alien species arrive and wonder why humans eventually ended up destroying themselves. Beaurocrageddon.
After trying to pay my phone bill, this now seems likely.
