i'm sick to death of having three people write & give me the same damn information, NOT to my advantage i might add, but telling me they will suspend my Housing Benefit [Jobseekers Allowance, read Social benefit, due to change - CHANGE mind you, not CEASE - 23th June and until they get paperwork officially telling them of the switch, they won't frickin' pay out??!!

So i ring up the latest one, some berk male who couldn't give a shit and kept saying how busy they all were. Way too busy to check that it might just changing and thus avoid being a total waste of time and money to do the suspension and then having to undo it... but not too busy to write to me. i said if three people could be co-ordinated into one, they wouldn't BE so damn busy wasting time... It just slid off his greasy ego... and changes nothing.

i would so love to get steel-toed boots on and go down and kick some ass...

Goddess help anyone who pisses me off to day!!

Incapacity Benefit is the only way to go. They give me £157 a week and pay my rent and council tax and I never hear anything from them thank goodness, apart from I have to go and chat to a fella in town once in a while...no hassle, no worries. If I felt up to working I could just then go for interviews when it suits me and not feel harrassed about it. You're too good and honest and upfront and a decent 'want to be working' citizen which is good, but then this sortov stuff happens...

Oh, i won't qualify for that yet.. you can bet on it... i don't qualify for Disabilty Living Allowance (unless i loose a foot or a hand or need a carer), i don't qualify for any kind of Disabled shit - yet. As far as i know, i don't have any serious illnesses (touch wood!), i'm not diabetic or have high blood pressure like Ma did, i don't have children or anything else life threatening - i'm just sorta half diabled, which makes me half witted by most, i think.
i had to pull one bloke up short when he started to talk to me like i was speaking a foreign language (who knows, to him i might have been!) and you have to speak slowly and kindly to the elderly, right?? [i'd been waiting there for two hours by then, mind you]. i couldn't resist putting a flea in his ear (all out of sweaty flies) and he didn't appreciate it, i can tell you!! i mean, he was being kind and thoughtful, wasn't he??? NO, you were being patronising in the extreme and up-yer-self, mate!
i think it was the 'bring your letter & proof of address' into the office so we can take copies that was the final straw - no, i couldn't email them copies, no, i couldn't post them.... they couldn't take my copies, they had to take their own - FOR HEAVENS SAKE!!! A Bloody Copy is a BLOODY COPY - MATE!

Lol. But you use a scooter? And a stick! In my book that makes you eligible! Lol at the patronising. It's all about how peeps percieve you I think. When I turn up looking my usual 'bag lady' official peeps are like that, receptionists and what have you, very patronising, and when they ask for I.D. I always show my card with my piccie on it from when I used to work at the town hall and it's amazing how their attitude changes. They don't know I was only in the typing pool...I could have been Director of Finance or something. ;)

i don't have my own scooter, i hired one for Collectormania weekend, from the shopping centre. i WISH i did have one permanently... It helps if they think you might be important or have access to people who might be, doesn't it? i should name drop... *snorts*
i will have a look at Incapacity Benefit tho' - if i go and cry all over Dr Roper and tell him i can't cope anymore, do you think he will do the medical certificate for me?? [wouldn't be too hard to drum up some tears either, i gotta tell you - frustration mainly and fury mostly!]
i probably won't qualify for that either!!!
*goes off to drink lots of alcohol with Ginger and play with cattle prod* Wanna come too?

love these avitars from Kazzy Cee
*takes a hefty swig and looks for something to test prod on* Goddess, i love you, Ginger!

who is that banging on the backdoor - it has to be the Demented Greek...he's the only one who tries that on... *goes to look*

Yes, it was - damn forgot to take the cattle prod with me, that would have been perfect... i told him Alex was out and he wasn't! well, i thought he was, until he walked passed my door just now... *snorts* too frickin' bad...
He shouldn't be encouraging that piece of shit to come around, now that he doesn't live here. They know well enough to keep the noise down though, that i'd come down like a ton of bricks if they didn't.... i love being mean to people who deserve it - i'll worry about my kharma later!

Have a great weekend!

The Demented Greek still comes around?!? I thought you were rid of him for good.

Just think of yourself as karma that has finally worked itself back around to bite the arse of someone who richly deserves it.

DG comes to visit the Spanish boy Alex and do the matey thing...nauseating... *throws up in hallway* He's so hidebound, he has the gall for anything - he wants to, so it must be, right??? *barfing again..*
i like the 'what-goes-around, comes-around' idea, me being the divine retribution boot... *hoots*
