    Fair usually does not come into it with these people.

    Guff is annoying stuff. Probably a good move to step back before it gets guffier.

    Bit of mooching and smelling the roses sounds the perfect prescription.

    This past couple of weeks it has been the double standards, some will moan to high hell about what someone else is doing and then go and do the same thing themselves!

    Then there are those who are veramently against the flats being sold for renting, but want to be able to rent thir own out if they have to leave :roll:

    Sorry AMG, missed your post back there. Sounds like you’ve a right old week.

    Re. ATOS – I get so angry reading through cases every week where there has been unfair treatment or decisions. I want to weep sometimes :cry:

    I see Ranald is being made to sing songs and pretend to stack shelves
    For his money, and they will not believe who he is.

    Glad he is not being demeaned then!

    I think in some of those cases, peole have not completed the form with enough specific detailed information. As well as the form assessor who cannot comprehend what the claimant is saying and apply that to tick box rules and then there are the cases they just get wrong from the onset.

    I think those styles of ‘introduce yourself’ interview days and just pathetic.

    Yes, I think the form filling is a bit of an issue from the outset but the ones I deal with tend to involve the WCA and clients often feel embarrassed and belittled. There are areas of the process that could do with some big improvements. That’s enough soap box for a Friday!

    Anyone for a bit of Dire Straits?

    This is my lucky day.

    A nice man has just phoned all the way from India to tell me I am eligible for
    A Government grant for loft insulation and cavity wall insulation all free of charge.

    I will be breaking open the champagne tonight.

    Just what I told him. He then asked if my boiler was older than 12 years. He sounded upset when I told him
    that the physios took away my oven and boiler and made me all electric.

    Thought he was going to cry, so I made a joke and said I really hoped I was the worse problem
    he has today.
