    Joining the dole que

    Resigned from my job on friday after 3 1/2 years of working for them. Due to fuel costs ect they wanted me to stop using my company van to go home in and to stop using it outside of work agreed to stop the use outside of work but not not going home in it as it wouldnt be worth travling the distance from my work to home every day in my car as it would cost far too much and the wage they paid me wasnt no were near enough to cover it. So after a lot of ranting ect I desided to quit was my best option. would rather have no money than work for **** all.

    Feel releved but havnt really been out of work since i left school so not sure what I should be doing really.

    Seems a triffle, dare I say, extreme to jack in the job without securing another one.

    Thats what I thought too. Also if your sacked and its your fault you cant claim either.

    Was there no other way top get to work? Car share, public transport, cheaper car to run or moped etc?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Jack of all trades master of none.

    I was a fruit machine engineer did mainly fruit machines and pool tables and juke boxes.
    Dont want to go down that trade again to be fair as its going down the pan anyway. pretty open minded but seriously thinking of finding a decent job and trade with so prospecs rather than mincing with jobs to get me by.

    Will be doing my class 2 then my class 1 though soon

    You have to wait 6 weeks IIRC before you can claim any money (well it was that years ago, they might have changed it now)

    Shame Brett, but you havent been happy in that job for a while have you?

    Like Tangoid said, clean slate...look for something that will actually interest you.

    I wouldn't advise anything to do with Pacman though lol

    Fair play to you mate, good money in class 1, especially if you get the hazard transport license (petrol etc).

    Might be but when I used my old mans cmax oil burner to go to work and back it was costing a minimum of a tenner a day, 6 times a week there and back, my vectra was at least £15 a day now having that already took from a piss poor wage would have taken all my money left over after bills ect, I was left in a possition to decide there and then. the company has taken the piss with me were I work each week a average of 13hrs a week unpaid over time most nights not comming home till silly o clock leaving me with no time with dani or rhian causing tension between us, never being allowed time off when I wanted it, and when I did they used to leave me stranded to get home on my days off. never was a fair company to work for in my eyes so a relif more so in my eyes.
