Thought you would've felt at home there Soton.

Also it's not nice to refer to Elfen as, "Some woman."

If you cannot find one then create one. These are the best times to set up your own business, if you can keep your own thing going during a financial downturn like this one then you'll do just fine when things are good again.

 

Think positive, act positive, do positive and be positive.

Yeah its a doss hole in them places. Luckily I haven't been laughed at yet. Good tip to not stand out is wear a chivvy jacket or something and keep your head down and hope you don't see anyone you know... I have, teice but i avoided eye contact and i don't think they remembered me.

also to cheer yourself back up again, go round town in shops and maybe buy yourself something. Works for me. Especially if theres a continental market on.

could be worse,you could have a 19 year stretch ahead of you with the csa on your back working trying to work for a living and being left with less money than jobseekers, ive almost completed my stretch and i completely hate the government for it, remember gents wear a condom theirs some slimey sl.ags out their that will destroy your world. if you leave a job you cant claim for six months if you get sacked its a lot less, if your made redundant you can claim straight away but it takes a while for them to process you. the work programme is the new employment system for britain replace proper jobs with slave labour ones.

How did you manage to keep up with Tax and National Insurance if you've signed off voluntarily? cos' the dole pay all that stuff for you, ready for when you start work, but if you're not claiming, working or in any form of education or apprentiships then how did you pay Tax and NI? lol

When I was younger I quit a job, had to sign on. Signed off of my own accord less than a month later as I would rather of had that extra burden spur me on - if I recall correctly that was the time I set up my own garden clearance company which actually went quite well... well I say company but anyway... that was a nice summer & a few months down the line I had proper work again.

 

Since then I have had over 16 jobs (or is it over 20... I forget) and have quit nearly every one and in between I have not signed on, I'm not against it as obviously we're entitled to it, it was simply a personal choice.

I didn't think you could sign on if you quit or were fired, only if you were made redundant...?

Maybe the rules have changed, this is going way back. Never had a problem though, been entitled to it a few times but just never took it up.
