stripes is on a distinguished road

There was a transparent (bulletproof?) wall between me and the MEP staff person, and there were no chairs in the interview room, perhaps to encourage people to get out quickly. The person I spoke to was quite confusing, I had to say several times "Let me repeat this back to you to be sure I understand". I suspect someone who wasn't as assertive would have left being no further enlightened than when they went in.

The person I spoke to was also from the Enforcement office rather than Recalculation, which I think is what I needed. But Recalculation doesn't do in-person meetings - everything has to be phone or email.

Yes it is indeed bulletproof. I've been in that room before. I had such a problem one year with MEP that I literally booked an appointment for every Monday morning at 10:00 AM (for 6 weeks in advance) until I was finally referred to a higher-level, and more informed, individual. It can be a very frustrating process.

Do persist until you are satisfied you have correct answers to your questions. I found the best way to communicate with them was by a combination of email and phone (I always recorded the name of the individual I spoke with). They have questionable mathematics skills IMO. I think even my ex would agree with that.
