Today I was meant to receive a benefit, (ESA) I checked at midnight and then checked at 2am and it still hadn’t hit my bank account.
This would normally not be a major problem, but I did the smart arse thing of getting a Tesco shop being delivered, the money doesn’t come out till the day of the delivery.
The problem is, in the UK we are still in a lockdown. We are really not meant to go out, but if I can’t pay for this shop then we are going to have to.
The problem is the DWP (department of work and pensions) say that they have till 5.30pm for the money to go in and this will be far to late and the shit we are going through makes it near impossible to get through on the phone lines.
I don’t have a clue, but this has the ability to make my sense of humour vanish and my anxiety to come back, which is why at 4am I am still awake refreshing my bank account.
It is now 5am, and I have just come to the conclusion it is Wednesday and not Thursday when I am meant to get the money and the Tesco shop comes out, go figure turns out I can be a complete idiot
