Another day, another fuck up

I was due a benefit payment today and guess what, it didn’t appear, so we ring up to find out what is going on, to be told that apparently when a payment is due, it can go in at any time before midnight on that day. I have never heard that, its a new one on me.

Hopefully it will get sorted fairly soon and the money into my account today.

While I was dealing with that, the housing people came round to assess me. The problem with this, is monkey was in the same room listening to all, so I couldn’t be as blunt as I wanted to be and had to put a lot of my answers into child friendly ones.

And again the phrase but you appear to be dealing with it came up again. I think I am going to get sick of that phrase, yes I doing wonderfully, because I have a small child relying on me. I am great at dealing with the emergencies as and when they come up, lets see how I am doing in September shall we, or I could completely lose it now, and be useless in everything, of course, ultimately if my brain decides thats the way to go, then there is little I can do to stop it

  2. So you do get some kind of benefits while you are fighting for disability? That is good at least. Sounds like your system is quite different from ours.

    • All our types of benefits are different, there are 2 types of disability benefits, there is a benefit for helping you pay your rent, there are 2 if you have children and one if you work and earn under a certain amount. All are different and you have to deal with different people and departments for each one
