Let me get this straight... They will not offer you any help until you have not even $5 in your pocket to give you a cheque that may or may not cover the bills and will take 3 months to get to you?????

BEG, you realize if you got knocked up you'd have your flat paid for O__O But because you are a kid who is going to school and leading a straight life, you're somehow not worth it. Oh no, we can't give help to the ones that deserve it. We need to help the little girls who are - really ARE - having kids to keep the cheques coming.

Keep on lugging it, girl. You'll make it!

Whilst filling out every form I've found my self ticking No... No ... No ... to things I know if only I could tick YES! to I would get things so much faster....

All i need to do.. is be a Non white, Pregnant with 6 kids.. (thats right SIX.. one EVERY form!!) living on my own, with no qualifications, not having gone to college, with no aspirations of a job I want to do...

*sigh*

Governments REALLY need to get there priorities right! people around here have a kid to get a flat because they can't be bothered to go to school... there is a woman who was in the paper... she was getting £75K a year on benefits... all I want to do is pay my rent, get a job, bide my time, take my course and be a counselor, its really depressing!

I don't know if it's getting to you fast enough, but I'm lending my will to the cause.

Blessings, mein Bruder.

Yup. Still O.K till Tuesday morning.

Like I say though, I do not know if we will get a decission there and then or have to wait another month for their snail mail to catch up with real life. :lol:

Even if he repeats what he said, as far as I know I get an official appeal.

Thats meinER Bruder, by the way. :roll: Sorry, could not resist that. ;)

eh, what can I say? My Spanish is only passable and I have the grammar of a 4 year old. My German is absolutely terrible.

For the cousins, quite right. :roll: :-D

Well. I have all my appeal paper work together for tomorow. Will be on their door step at 8 waiting for them to open at 9. Even then you are not garunteed to be first in the queue!

Lisa and I have found 15 points where the information he has is plain WRONG, or he has missunderstood.

For exam,ple, I registered with a few "job finder" web sites (Monster, and "Job 24"). They were sending me job offers for things like "assistant to the GEO of Shell international", and "General manager of Hamburg docks container security", all stuff that so OBVIOUSLY fitted my profile. :-?

So I put them down as an example of why I had given up on the job finder web sites.

HE, however, wrote that I"have been applying for jobs that I am not qualified for". IN SPITE of the fact I made a point of attaching the copies of the posts I sent to these firms, telling them to "get their act together". #-o #-o #-o

Along with the fact that he has the wrong information as to when my last "REAL" job was, despite my full C.V being part of the file. I suspect STRONGLY that the main problem here is that he has not read the bloody file before coming to his decission.

THIS time I will sit there and make him read it out loud. :lol:

Ah yes job sites I signed up to one a while back whilst look for a part time job, I could do as a student, Even sent them my Quals, Time tables the fact the central Birmingham's was the main place i could go and no where out of Birmingham was possible...

This is the kinda email I get from them...

Job Title: Transmission Project Manager, Service Delivery
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Type: Contract
Salary: Market rates


15 mistake... Wow, that is absolutely awful! Although I'll say I'm not shocked, every time they are putting one of my forms through they rush it, They type in the bare minimum and glance at the page for barely a second! and this was when they were sorting out a debt of £900 owed to them.. When its some one else being owed money or something they pay even less attention!

Well. I put the "appeal" in today. He admited that all the mistakes I had pointed out, were indeed mistakes.

Now he has to sit down and write his reccomendations,.

I don't know, neither does he, how long that will take. but I should get a full answer around mid to late August.

Well, that much at least is good news.

Let's keep the ball rolling in that direction then, eh?

Good Luck Ragnar

My thoughts and energies go to you.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.
