    :hissy: :gun: :hissy:

    In no! mood at all right now. Just been sat at the stupid job center for 3 hours! which took me an hour getting there just to be told i could be waiting 12 weeks to start getting paid.

    Now how the fuck am i supposed to support Jayden with NO money! i have no income whats so ever! i am so sick of having to borrow money, that place needs a kick up the ass (i would be happy to do so :D)

    I've had to take a crisis loan out to buy my baby nappies :cry: i feel like such a failure to my baby! He is asleep in his pram without a care in the world, not knowing what his mummy has to do just to get by. I have to go back there in a minute, and if i wasn't desperate i wouldn't even bother after the way they spoke to me.

    'you was a bit stupid getting yourself into this wasn't you!' <<< who the fuck is he to say that to me!!!

    sorry rant over xx
     
  2. Dont get me started on the job centre!!!! Biggest punch of incompetant monkeys in the world ever! I lodged a formal complaint with them back in May, I got a letter acknowledging my complaint and never heard anything again. I sent more letters... no response. I have now had to complain to the independent case examiner I am not letting it go. I have even been spoken to like absolute crap on the phone to them numerous times.... one person even called me a benefit scrounger!!!! I was so outraged!!!!!!!! Its not my fault I lost my sodding job all I was trying to do was claim contribution based job seekers. Oh my god I hate the job centre so much I could go on and on and on. I took me 3 months to get what I was entitled to whilst being called a liar the whole time. Im cross now... deep breaths.... lol

    They are incompetant sometimes. I've been sent several jobs in Eastleigh when they KNOW I have no way of getting there, and a couple of days ago I received a job, went "OMG! They've got it in the right area this time!" Only to realise that it's a shift one which is too early for buses and too late for the bus home.. Also, they sent me the same job...with someone else's name and address at the top. Fortunately I know him and everything...but surely this is a breach of privacy??

    Oh well, if I get the job I'm after, I'm the one that'll interviewing for all the JSA etc, so come into my branch!!! :p

    my Oh went in today cos he got sacked on fri (he does agency work) he said to them about signing on, cos he was in the same situation before and didnt, and they said he had to phone up to do it!! an 0800 number, which he'd be on for about half an hour to. not much help, seeing as we dont have a landline and just use our mobiles all the time! so basically he'd have to spend a load of money in order to claim. grrrrrr

    Tell me about it, I went to them in desperate need for help. I am self employed and with this credit crisis it hit me and H hard. I dont have any children but was at risk of losing my house etc. I went to the job centre to see what they could do and they said nothing unless I had children. He then said my advice get pregnant.

    Can you believe this. The goverment spend millions trying to stop people from getting pregnant and encouraging young women not to and then an organisation that works with the government then tell me to get pregnant to get benefits. I want children when we are both ready not just to get money. I was so annoyed. I then rang the Inland revenue and they said I was entitled to working tax credits and could not believe the advice I got.

    It makes me so mad:hissy: They are happy to give out benifits to anyone but not those who need it.
