    Hahaha thats what my flatmate says! "Just have loads of kids then we can all live off you!"

    I hope it goes well for you and gets sorted out. I've been back to my mums and sorted through my files and managed to find my P60's!!!! So I'm gonna go in on monday and say GIVE ME MONEYS PLEASE.

    Although I have this horrible dreadful feeling that they'll still find something wrong with it....

    I have never been more p*ssed off in my LIFE.

    Apparently, I am entitled to NOTHING. They don't count the last year, they work on 06/07 and 07/08. 06/07 is when I was at college, then I had to leave because I was ill. Then I worked as a xmas temp at Musiczone, which went into administration before I left, and I didn't even get paid for the last week I was there. Then I was at some horrible job at a place called Mortgage Match for 2 weeks, which I quit because... well quite a few different reasons. So I won't have earned enough to qualify for anything. And because I stupidly told them I had a partner, because he works over 24 hours a week (even though he earns f*ck all) I can't even apply for the other type of Jobseekers.

    So I said to the chap on the phone "It doesn't even matter that I've worked full time for the past 2 and a half years?" to which he replied no, thats not how it works here. So I said, "I'm screwed then?" And he said "Well, they're your words, but yes you are." So I put the phone down on him.

    You might want to go to Citazens Advice - the Benefits deparemtment dont know their arse form their elbows. i still dont see why you wouldnt be entitled to some sort of benefit.

    That was what happened to me, I went to the job centre, said that Robin was my partner and immediately it's like "you can't claim". I cried :/. I'd really been relying on that and we've been having a bit of a hard time living on what he earns, it just doesn't cover two people beyond rent/bills/food and the occasional treat if we watch our spending. Luckily I had some savings but a lot of that went to my parents, and I'm seeing no sign of getting my deposit from my old house back.

    Thats the thing, I tried to explain that even though Andy works over 24 hours a week, he doesn't actually earn a full time wage, theres no way I can live off him. I've borrowed enough from my parents, I've used up every penny of my overdraft, I have nothing left to sell. I'm screwed!

    I remember when I applied for JSA and the bint on the phone actually suggested I get pregnant. "But you would be entitled to a lot more if you were pregnant". I was fargin mortified.
