    So my contract isn't being renewed on september the 11th due to lack of budget and a bunch of bullshit.

    So I need to sign on for the stop gap between jobs.

    I finish on the 11th, but I get paid on the 15th.

    So if I went there and signed up, would they make me wait for longer untill I could get it?

    Even though I'm unempoyed. Do I even have to tell them?

    I'm alright for cash for a while.... It's more principal than anything like.

    I've earnt the right to claim it, so I'm going to, even if I don't need the money massively.

    Sign on as soon as possible man, I havent been on it but my mates have, it can take up to about 3 months to start comming through, plus you get back dated to when you first signed on.

    Leech?

    I've been paying shitloads of tax since I was 17.

    3 years of paying more tax than a whole council estate could claim.

    Respect for actually working in the first place + aiming to get another job before 3months. You have earnt it unlike most of the lazy tramps who sign on with no ambition.

    I bet they will be wankers and because you have had a job not let you sign on for a while, even though you deserve it more than them.

    I would just lie about it, good luck bro

    I knew you were joking.

    But for the benefit of others who will read the thread.

    it won't take three months brof. there's a number you have to ring, they will organise an interview then that's effectively the first day you sign on

    Prepare for the delights of a Job Centre

    Chavs only there for the money
    Staff who look down on you as if you're a piece of scum
    Staff who have no interest in helping you
    Staff who don't know what they're doing

    From what I've heard, if your a decent hard working person whos off work for the first time since you've left school, it'll be a mission.

    If your a lazy fuck whos done nothing but avoid work their whole life your laughing.

    Everything seems a bit backwards when it comes to this sort of thing, good honest workers get next to nothing, and the wasters who know how to play it seem to rake it in! It takes the piss for people like yourself who have paid theyre way and actualy deserve to be able to get it.

    In reality I know nothing about it, so probably not much use!

    That's fine.

    I don't want help off them.

    I could do their job a piece of piss.

    I just want money off them.

    I'll find a job off my own back. Not wait for some retard to find a job that they think is suitable job for me.

    Edit: @ Testicles.
