Garlic Moments: Not a Cybercafe

Posted on May 11th, 2010 by admin

Garlic fan Toril Eide applies for self-employed sickness benefit. Toril writes:

“Ay, La Ley  de Falta Uno o Tres …. y Las Cosas de Palacio van Despacio:
Recently I went  to the Mutua (the obligatory ‘Mutua de Accidentes de Trabajo y Enfermedades Profesionales’): I wanted to do el trámite myself, as gestor was busy doing VAT. I was applying for the prestación por Incapacidad Temporal (sick pay).
Brought in a big bolsa:
ID card + photocopy
The 6 last ‘cuotas de autónomos’ pay slips +  photocopies
Baja médica from médico de cabecera  +  photocopy
Hospital report + photocopy.
Not enough for the funcionaria – though mutua employees  are not funcionarios, they act, behave and dress like them.
Funcionaria: Bring back tomorrow : ‘Request form to be paid’,  ‘Declaration of Activity’ and a sort of Hacienda ‘Communication of Personal  Information for El Pagador’.
Me: Can you please just download the formularios for me to get them filled in and signed by me right now….?
Funcionaria: ESTO NO ES UN CÍBER


We hope you’re better now and also got the money, Toril. Thanks for sharing.

The Spanish terms are explained in the book.
