Ritual humiliation at the job centre. January 15th 2015

Ritual humiliation at the job centre yesterday involved being told off for not having my paper booklet to write the next appointment in. I provided the response that I was perfectly capable of remembering a date two weeks in advance if by some miracle my smartphone forgot. In fact I have been turning up fortnightly for two months despite not actually receiving any money yet. Turns out I didn’t make sufficient national insurance contributions in 2013 to be eligible for job seekers allowance. This is incorrect to the sum of £4,904.69. One slow computer system and a failed call back yesterday and hanging up on me instead of being put on hold today – I now have £299.95. Do these people seriously run our country? They couldn’t run an egg and spoon race.
