I turn 21 at the end of the month, I've been registered homeless since 16.. I've got jack squat! aha. Never mind the Polish, here's something I always ask people... Have you seen a homeless Asian lately? probably not as relevant up in Scots Land, but in Brum, that's a key observation! lol
When you register as homeless, it literally means homeless! Of course since the age of 16, I've been between my moms, family and friends, I've always worked, but earn maybe 40% of what I actually need to get my own place.. YOU CANT TELL THE COUNCIL you've have a sofa to kip on, because you 6 YEAR WAIT will TURN INTO A LIFE LONG WAIT. So, In my case, I'm never to far from somewhere warm to kip, but that's only because I have BRILLIANT friends. BUT NO OF THOSE PLACES ARE PERMANENT. My mom kicks me out every 6 months because shes a depressive alchy, my family litterally can only offer the sofa for short periods of time as with friends. I need council help, that WON'T come, a PAY RISE, THAT WONT COME, or a room mate, but no one can afford it! lol.. Im LUCKY, there are many people with no sofas to kip on.
Well, IMO, the flaws in today's society are so OBVIOUS (me or you could run the country better) that the flaws are being implemented on purpose... This can be seen in many aspects, such as the great JOB SCANDAL.. I work at the chamber of commerce doing the "Back to work program" for the Job Center. The government are in cahoots with employers to NOT HIRE people, but to USE FREE LABOR. Honestly. Makes one wonder.. why? Humph.
My comments are not aimed at the OP. To all you lazy whinging hunts GO & GET A JOB! IF there isn't one where you live move! If you haven't got the skills RETRAIN! Always whinging on about what the council wont give you & blamming it on forieners that you haven't got anything; place to live, job etc etc etc! You lazy hunts wont clean a toilet but they will. You're too good to do a menial job right? What have any of you got to offer society or an employer? Educated? Trained? Pillar of the community? WHAT? Suk you lot I'm fed up of paying for your lazy begging arses. Stop blaming others, grow up & take responsibility for yourselves like the rest of us. You're owed nothing by anyone. Pay for yourselves & stop expecting when you haven't contributed. Whinging lazy begging hunts! Harsh I know but the truth hurts.
So you are: 21 couch surfing for 5 years now. posting on an internet forum the whole day over and then have the guts to make a picture where you look totally fresh with makeup and nice clothes, sipping at a glas of beer. I believe nothing you tell me. Either you are lying about being homeless and all that stuff or you´re doing pretty well being homeless and sucking money out of others purses. Guess what the difference between you and ALS is to me? He´s working his arse off to provide his family (two extra people, keep in mind!) a home and you lazy type of human have the guts to present yourself like this. In the time you are here on ATS, you could work the other 60% that you are talking about missing. Then you could finally afford your own life. Instead of that crap I wrote above. ALS, I´m holding my thumbs for you and your family to find a aceptable home for you three. Keep your head up
Did you even read Sinny's posts?She has to work for her job seekers allowance.Would you work full time for under seventy quid a week?Doesn't being homeless not mean you don't have a home?She goes to friends and family to sleep on their settees.(sofa surfing).I know your type-I'm all right jack.
Okay I´ve overread that. But what was she doing before? I´m not the type you try to push me in. BTW, whats a job seeker allowance? A allowance to seek a job??? So you are allowed to go to the job center and search for a job? Sounds like paperwork
Ok, thats really not much. But you have to think about two things. I mean, a 21 year old pretty girl should find some job in service at least if she can count money (no offend!) if she´s searching for 5 years now. Second, I don´t know what her qualifications are. apprenticeship? finished school? If not, own fault. Its just unbelievable to me that one says she cannot earn enough while sitting the whole day on ATS.
Glen thanks for trying to defend me, but it looks like we're lost in translation here.... He's referring to me NOT having a job, when its clearly stated I WORK for the Chamber Of Commerce, actually RUNNING the "Back to work program" for the government I'M NOT ON JOBSEEKERS, I've just had to make a number of replies, because I didn't realise how many times he actually mentioned me..
