Feeling a bit crap today. It think it's money related...again. We had to go to CAB this morning about our Council Tax. Basically, the Council want all the info we've already given them but it has to come from CAB. It's not enough that we're telling them.

Anyway, Paul has to go back again because some numpty at teh CAB double booked everyone and cocked up the booking system. Fantastic. And we're counting on these people to help us out of the sh*t? I think not.

Anyway, all that's by the by for now. I have to dig out how much we owe to people and how far behind we are etc. etc. ready for Paul to go back again the week after next!

So, everywhere I go I see people posting about how skint they are, they don't have enough for this and that; people who need a holiday...yeah, me too, I haven't had one since my son was 3 and he's 16 now! "Get £2000 scrappage allowance for your old car when you buy a new XXXXXXX"...errrr, I can't afford a new car even with £2,000 which is why I'm driving round in this clapped out old banger!

Yet another bloody programme about Michael Jackson...not many people had a good word to say about him when he was alive and now he's a saint! I hate hypocrisy!

A recent conversation about not being able to get a job brought forth the following statement: "It's not what you know, it's who you know"! WTF? I've been working for the past 30 years and for each job I've had, it's been because I 'know' someone? I don't think so. It's been because I needed to work to survive. I've packed crisps, I've packed biscuits, I've done hairdressing, I've done shopwork, I've done clerical and now I'm an office manager...all on my own merits thank you very much. If you don't really want to work, that comes across in interviews. If you really do want to work, you're willing to give anything a go, I don't care what you say. I know we're in a recession but, let's face it, you're happy staying in full time education aren't you?

If you're really so skint, stop buying £300 shoes. You don't know how to cut down your shopping bill? Stop buying ready made meals! Bloody hell, you don't need a degree in home economics you know!

The human race...I give up!

FishGirl and I had this talk last night about fashion queens and how they are probably to broke to eat after buying the shoes and dress and all the booze and this is how they can be a size 0.

Its like a girl I know who spends all day at work on Twitter, FB and posting epic huge LJ posts bitching about how she never has time to get her work done. Dude.

That drives me insane! Office Numpty does things like that. She'll fanny about on the internet all day and when she has a job to cover she huffs and puffs and says, "I can't cover that". FFS, it's what you're paid to do so get on and do it!
