This is a question Jobsworths

All over the world there are little people following the rules and being arsey because, let's face it, it's fun.

Tell us about your experiences with petty jobsworths, or, if you are a petty jobsworth, tell us how much you get off on it.

not funny, but what the hell
moved to London in 2001, and signed on ("job seeker`s allowance.. for people seeking jobs") whilst I looked for a job

1. the job centre was pissed off that being an I.T. Profeshinaul I wouldn`t take a £3.50 per hour job as a trainee chef

2. they said I could claim jobseeker`s allowance (for people seeking jobs) after filling in their huge wad of paperwork, only for them to tell me I needed another interview

3. turned up for interview.. asked same questions again and again ("no, I can get a job, I just want some money to pay the bills for a few weeks until I find one") and given more paperwork

4. turned up to sign on.. 20 minutes early - place was empty, and yet the stupid bitch at the desk saw fit to tell me off for being early "don`t do it again" - must have caught her off her guard or something

5. told by the employment cunts that I couldn`t claim jobseeker`s allowance, only to receive 4 letters over the next 3 weeks telling me that the jobseeker`s allowance would be stopped if I didn`t sign on - they managed to mis-spell "Richard" on each letter

anyway.. I wrote back to them calling them stupid cunts, asking them if "Richard" was a difficult name to spell and enquiring how they expected not to pay me something they weren`t paying me, and telling them that their future communications were going straight in the bin, signing off with letters after my name (proper ones, not F.U.C.K. C.O.C.K.)

I was very proud of that letter.. but not this post. Maybe I`ll just post the letter ;)
