Pretty shitty innit.
It's day 1 and I'm already slightly freaking out.
Share tales of woe below.
Well, if I was rich.
Roll on retirement.
Does it catch your underarm hairs too?
had an interview on Thursday and haven't heard anything back yet. I haven't got any money & I am also starting to get a bit scared.
though I do.
I missed out on a short term role on Friday I was relying too heavily on getting (in my head - although it was very very close)... ARGH.
Great - let's have Anxiety Central on here then in the lead up to getting work.
youre freaking out cos youre not at work right now? this sentence is causing my mind to overload
it wouldn't be a problem. But it's actually quite expensive
because everything dies
My agent hasn't come through for you yet then? I HATE agents.
pimps are calling themselves these days? I can't keep up.
or did you already watch it at lunchtime?
it's when you start watching it twice a day that you need to worry
Sorry to be depressing and everything.
don't get so used to wearing pyjamas/trackie bottoms that you start thinking they're suitable job interview attire.
Doing fuck all is great. Not being able to buy anything is shit, but doing fuck all is great.
food, booze & keep a roof over my head is worse than doing nothing though
Glad to see you're not dead yet!
Oh and it's Ronnie Wood by the way.
but it seems to hurt less. Surely if it was a hernia the pain would remain constant.
Ronnie Wood was my second guess, after the drummer!
have no intention of doing so now.
signing on is for cunts.
actually, i say that, ive just this minute got back from the job centre, and i wont have any job seekers allowance for a couple weeks.
which means no money for a couple weeks.
and if i actually get one of their jobs, i rekon the first time i get paid after all the hassle would be...a couple weeks.
fun times ahead.
cant we just have a yard where we can go and turn up whenever and break rocks with a pickaxe for 20quid a day?
its the forms and the interviews and the fucking time time time that gets me.
i mean the time it takes from inquiring about job..to getting paid.
seems to take forever. i just want to walk in somewhere and start work the next day, and clean toilets if i have to. just give me something quick.
work doesnt drain/depress/tire me out, its the fucking search that puts me in a stupor
If only people knew you had cus-cus everynight.
YOU usually eat them with couscous.
I claimed for ten weeks once, nothing wrong with that at all.
It's not as if you get some sort of rebate if you don't claim, is it?
Besides, there are plenty of people who have NEVER paid NI at any point that are happy to claim.
to get your rent paid.
