Job Centre Farce

So I am looking for work.

I went in to use the job centre info booths, as their website does not work with OS X, and found a few jobs I am interested in, and I went to reception to, as the info booths advise, ask for further details. The receptionist told me, "We do not deal with jobs here" adding, "You need to go over there", pointing to another desk, with a queue.

Whilst waiting in the queue I received a phone call in reply to a job query - a more appropriate call to take in a job centre I cannot think of. A security guard asked me to leave.

I finished my call, and returned to my place in the queue, when it came to be my turn, I was asked if I was receiving benefits, when I answered, "no" I was informed that the job centre only gave help to those job seekers receiving benefit! So I was directed to a bank of telephones and so gave them a call.

It was all just so funny, being told that the job centre does not deal with jobs, being asked to leave when taking a phone call about jobs, and finally being told that staff do no deal with unemployed people who are not seeking money from the government.

I laughed.
