Am I being a grumpy old man

I have just received a follow up e mail address as follows:

 

Dear ( First Name)

 

I have never met or spoken to the individual at HMRC . I would have been content with

Dear Mr (Surname)

But this is a step to far. Even worse than callling taxpayers 'customers'

 

Oh for the good old days with proper Inspectors
