The joys of being unemployed - April 23rd 2012, 09:46 AM

I just went to the job centre to sign on Job Seekers Allowance. The woman said "I have a questionnaire", I said okay. This was the "questionnaire"

Do you have any children? No
Are you single? Yes

I don't think that qualifies as a questionnaire.

Those questions could be really important though O.o
And don't you have to answer those whilst your sign up for JSA as well?

the way she was speaking I thought there would be like, 20 questions.

I actually answered them already I don't know they needed to know again.

But in the time since you started signing on is it not possible that you could have found a partner?

Ah, well that is silly O.o To be honest though, half of the people at the job centre are stupid.

I know -____- How they have jobs themselves is a mystery.

I can't wait until September (I'm going back to college full time)

LOL What a questionnaire

Re: The joys of being unemployed - April 25th 2012, 07:55 PM

Is it bad that I can find legit answers for why those two questions would be asked?- Where I lived that could be a question on, can you come in early?, can you have short lunchs that don't have to be at a certain time?, do you have to get off after school/daycare hours? - And if you can work valentines day... But that's just me.


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

They're legit questions but I like I said I don't know how that qualifies as a "questionnaire" A questionnaire is like 5+ questions.

I'd also get more money if I had children. It would be more complicated if I lived with another person in case they were unemployed as well.
