I would like the thank Centrelink for making my life hell. For those of you who don’t know who these anti-Christs are, they’re Australia’s bitter welfare department, hell bent on making sure your time with them is the most unstable and stressful time of your whole life. They just suspended my payment after a mistake THEY made. They didn’t even ring to tell me what had happened, even after the woman I talked to, told me everything would be fine and she’d call me when it was worked out. No call, nothing. This was the same woman who hadn’t called me for two weeks because she was on holiday, when again, she said she would call. They do not care about you. You are a piece of sub-human filth to them; they couldn’t care less if you were out on the street, as long as they didn’t have to pay you.
So, still looking for work, planning to drop uni because of the shit it’s caused with Centrelink, and I have a whole $84 in my account to last me till I don’t know when. Oh yeah, I’m meant to pay board today, and that’s $90. Looks like I’m at -$6 now. Great. They’ve put me on job seeker again, but it takes weeks to go through a process I know by heart. And I have to repeat the same useless interviews over and over and over.
So, if you’ve got a little bit of cash to spare, click the little donate thing to keep me sane ;)
