The silence is not golden at the moment for me I must admit!
Somethings certainly not right with the way this seems and I would guess you would agree after reading about this…
I have posted before about the fact I made claims for disability help because of my deafness, now I have been turned down recently for jobs because of…you guess failing health and safety due to…my ears.
Now some of you know I DO hear things with hearing aids etc, but the problem is I can’t hear where the sound, noise (possible danger) is coming from.
Not a good situation obviously, so I mentioned this to the benefit office and asked them to take it into consideration when deciding my “disability claim”.
Ok they said…
Now I get another knock back…no sorry… your not “deaf enough” in a politer way.
As I said before…
And the biggest cheek is… they say “sorry about that, but we will make sure you have a disability adviser” ??!!
Look… I am either deaf or I am not!
No giving me bullshit like that, it’s “yes you are” or “no you are not”.
I can appeal…what again?
Another three month wait?
Nothing I can other than that, what a stupid system when others out there fake it with “bad backs” and crap.
Then I am on the bus coming home and I see a mate, get talking and I told him of this and you know what he told me?
Them smack heads (heroin addicts) (names not being revealed ;o)) are getting “incapacity benefit”…!!
What? WTF is going on with this country?
Smack heads who are NOT forced to take that crap are getting MORE than me to live on!!
They can’t work??…Most never have, never will.
Makes me feel like all the tax, Nat insurance I have put in when I was working, was for nothing!
So…it stinks, what can I do?
