Apparently nothing weird happened in September.

Anyway, to start off October:

CBC reports that two people entered a St. John's, NL, Pet Zone and made off with hundreds of dollars worth of bull penises.

Were the thieves taking the "Pizz(el)" or just being cocky?

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

A year ago the Canadian government legalized marijuana. Since then the Government of Ontario has lost $42 million selling pot.

So, after loosing my job back in September, I was forced to sign onto Universal Credit (the piece of sh*t system our useless govt. are forcing people to use in order to receive basically ANY benefit) in order to receive unemployment benefits. Now, after a couple of months I found a new job, which I started about a month ago, and which I declared (twice!) so as to avoid any problems and because I would no longer need the money from benefits in order to keep a roof over my head etc.

I checked my email just now and found an email from the system to tell me I need to do something in order to receive my payments, which I thought was weird since I'm now not claiming. But, since I've experience of how useless these people are, I just assumed there had been a mistake somewhere, and I'd just need to provide the details of my new job. However, when I logged into my account, I found that I have a payment scheduled next week for £0.00.  Huh Huh Huh Huh

I mean WTF? I don't need the money (even if there actually was any due), and I'm supposed to do what? In order to get nothing?

They have got it right.
You don´t need the money as you have a job, so the payment amount was correctly set to zero.

As a rule they cannot do anything without getting on yout T*** so they have to bother you with something.

Here goes.

It'd be awesome if you get a printed cheque for £0 in the mail!  Grin

Did they overspend on office snack foods...?
