Being unemployed with no intention of working to play a video game is nothing to be proud of '-_- Im starting my university degree next month, but at least I have 2 weeks before I start to play gta V

I'm unemployed after recently being made redundant from an IT Engineer job.

 

Fortunately my parents were kind enough to let me live at home for free (well I have to pay for a few things) until I find a job. I am using my last paycheck to fund myself, I also get a tax refund (I overpaid tax in my previous job) in the next few weeks. I intend to use my tax refund and my last paycheck to live on.

 

So yes I am unemployed, but I am trying my hardest to avoid going on benefits and applying for JSA. For me that is a last resort. I understand if you are living by yourself you have to go on it straight away as you can't afford not to.

 

I look for work everyday and I seriously hope I find employment before having to go on JSA. I despise the idea of using the taxpayers money to pay for me and my problems until I absolutely have to.

I'm unemployed at the moment and it sucks but GTAV + GTAO will help with the boredom.

 

I went from having a 40k a year job to JSA (71 squid a week).

 

Yes I like the time off (for now) as I used to work 84 hours a week (anyone on 12 hour shifts 7 days a week will know it can make you a wee bit tired lol) but JSA is hard to live on and it gets so boring.

That being said it is not supposed to be a permanent thing and shouldn't be comfortable.

 

It's brilliant that our country will help us out when we need it but unfortunately this has created some of the most laziest ungrateful f*ckers ever. This is why we used to prefer to employ foreign workers as most English boys and girls (16-24) moan about working and don't care about their job... this is because they can have it 'easy' on JSA and half of them just don't realise that they're born. Our government is half to blame because they're too soft PERIOD.

 

If your happy being on JSA RATHER than working then tbh your a bit of a sad f*cker. Anyone that thinks its funny to sit around and live off other peoples hard work is just pathetic. FACT.

Enjoy queuing in the job centre for your £50 odd a week.

£71 a week bruv.

 

What the f*ck? That's £284 a month. That's £100 more than I earn a month. What the f*ck am I doing working when I could be getting paid to sit on my arse sponging off of the government? No wonder so many people come here to sit on benefits & no wonder so many of our own don't bother looking for work.

 

 

So what your earning £184 a month? Really? Doing about 26 hours work a month? How are old are you?

Not having ago but I'm guessing you're a student either in high school or at Uni doing a part time job on a Saturday, with support from your parents. £284 a month isn't a lot, job seekers or not. I've struggled on just under £300 a week whilst working. It's doable but near impossible when its not just yourself you're supporting. I do not believe you are self-sufficient on £184 a month.

 

Anyone saying it's an easy life living on JSA is delusional and ignorant. It's not. You've seen a few newspapers articles about benefit scroungers and putting everyone in the same group, its unfair, those people you see living well with a four bedroom house on benefits are claiming far more than JSA, they're con artists playing the system for every penny they can, whether it be JSA, fake disability, child benefits (having more kids). Most JSA claimants are actively searching for and would love a job, yet need some monetary support; else they starve.

If the welfare system wasn't here, there would have been a revolt already. Wars and welfare have patched up the money system but it's long overdue for a collapse.

Another good point.

 

People tend to forget that one of the reasons/benefits to JSA is that it keeps normal people off the streets committing crimes in order to support themselves. Cut the JSA and watch the crime figures rise.

Dude just get on JSA, it's easy to do and it'll help bring down the money system quicker and it's less stress for you. Drop the idea of "respectability" being associated with "work", there is nothing respectable about spending 10 hours of your day in a repetitive job making someone else rich, wasting the best years of your life. 50 years ago sure, people needed to work. Now? Technology can pretty much automate most labour intensive jobs such as warehousing, kitchens, housing could be manufactured en mass instead of requiring humans to build them using wood, brick, and nails.

 

"You work hard, you reap the benefits" - according to that logic those poor bastards working hard in Asia 18 hours a day for a dollar an hour should be rich any time now. Of course, most people lack understanding, more is required than hard work, such as background, circumstance etc.

I don't have a problem with unemployed people but I constantly see people coming to the E.R. on an ambulance, walking through the door saying they have chest pain with two pissed off medics behind them....almost always turns out that their chest pain is actually a tooth ache and a $2000 ambulance ride beats a $5 cab ride because the hospital is closer to Wal Mart and they know they've whipped the system and don't pay for sh*t. Meanwhile I'm going through college so I can help these people -_- A lot of my friends are unemployed but there's a difference between not having a job and being a leech.

Ha! It's Britain in a nutshell. No one seems to realise that it all goes back into the system via the VAT system. Yes, even OP has paid the government for daring to breath and having his GTA V game.

 

What's the anger about really? I'm not some programmed drone, I'm self employed for all my own interests. With greatest respect I couldn't give a toss what my neighbour does or what the government do. Life is to short to worry about any of that.

 

OP, if playing GTA V is going to make you that happy go for it. No bitterness here mate. :colgate:

Considering a huge majority of players will be high school students and college students, I'd say there will be a lot.

Technically I'm unemployed, if you want to call it that. I'm in college full time though, and I take care of my old lady's 3 kids while she works to support us. I don't consider that freeloading though, as we aren't taking anything from the government.

Rich people die with sh*t loads of money in the bank that the govt claws back once they are dead, I think the only thing people should aspire to be is comfortable. Whatever you like.. embrace it and enjoy it. Find ways to make life work out your way. Being "rich" or the "most attractive" or the most "clever" wont keep you content if you are not in control and not enjoying life the way you want.

I've worked for 8 years at the same place and got laid off because the business got bought out, I've paid over 10,000 dollars in taxes over that time period, f*ck you if you think I'm wrong to want some of that money back.

Life's too short to waste it working - unless you find a job that you like or at least think it's worth while doing.

 

Unfortunately I haven't. And as far as I'm concerned, being a wage slave is no more honourable than being dole scum.

 

Fortunately however, I don't have expensive tastes and £70 a week is more than enough to live comfortably on. That's not to say I don't try to get a job, I submit many a letter and application each fortnight, but thankfully no one wants to give me a job.

 

So I will have plenty of free time to play V and that sounds splendid.
