28th
JAN

Signing on

Posted by Lester Madden under General

Wow is been over a month since I last blogged.

 

I’m still unemployed. January is not normally good for job hunting, so to get out the house (funny how after a month in doors you cant wait to get outside), I went to register for jobseekers allowance for the first time in my life.

 

I didn’t really know what to expect, but I had a notion that it would be like going to the bank and meeting the bank manger. Ie you walk in, someone shakes you hand and says “can I get you a cup of tea Mr Madden”, “Mr Jones will be right out”. Perhaps even a collection of magazines to read while you wait. If you have never been unemployed then its nothing like that. I had a 9am appointment, I waited outside with 50 other people in the rain and cold until 9:05 when the doors opened. Then everyone rushed in while someone pointed out where we go.
