      For some reason the council have just sent me a new bill telling me my council tax will be increasing about £35 a month for some reason  :mad:

      I work such little hours I still have to claim Universal Credit to pay my rent... plus being furloughed at the minute... I was getting more money NOT working, since getting a job all I’ve  done is struggle and it’s starting to piss me off...

      Yeah I’m gonna call on Monday, trust me to get it on a Saturday haha!

      It’s just added stress on top of already a stressful time, since I started working part time in December, I am coming off WORSE then when I was just on benefits once you include travel costs, increase in stuff such as Council Tax etc and they wonder why people don’t work... unless you’re working a full time job it’s not worth it, might aswell stay on benefits. Never struggled once while I was solely on benefits, by the end of my second month working I was eating a banana a day until my next wage... it just confuses me...

      Had to call local council on behalf of my dad as as his health has got worse and the pandemic has took hold he was finding it hard to get out and pay at the post office so I said I would set up a direct debit for him and . Kept checking to see if dd was set up and checked when first payment was due so I could transfer money into his account as we go halves. Saw it hadn't been taken as requested so called them and found out that they had received the mandate but not processed due to the shortage of.staff. I managed to get it sorted out so thankfully no warning letters were sent.

      How much council tax were you paying monthly before the £35 increase..? Seems excessive, especially if your claiming benefits..

      I was paying around £17 a month, I only work a 8 hour contract at a really quiet cinema so I’m lucky to get anything near 15 hours, and usually come out with £600 or less a month, more than likely usually close to £500, if I was on UC alone I get £560, so they top it up, £318 of that goes to rent, then bills, food, travel etc on top... so to some £50ish a month council tax to some might not sound much but it’s a massive chunk of what I have left.

      Just done some sums;

      Working;
      £318 rent
      £60 travel
      £40 gas and electric (being tight on using gas)
      £38 water
      £100 food
      £14 phone
      £25 internet
      £50 council tax

      £645 a month, can only afford this if I defo do lots of hours, very rare. If low hours, I’m fecked.

      Not working, I can take off the travel and the council tax goes down to around £13 I think when I wasn’t working at all, so that comes to... £548... which even on my lowest income, is just under my lowest payment, which I can just about live on...

      Almost £100 worse off working.

      Trying to get back to work and just went to an interview about delivering for Amazon.

      £600 for 5 days - 45 hours, minus £200 per week for van hire off them, so £400 a week, have to pay 500 deposit for the van, taken at 100 over the first 5 weeks. So £300 a week for the first five weeks. After five weeks it's  still be minimum wage working 12pm till 9pm. Also have to front for weekly fuel.

      When I was 18 I was earning £220 a week, now I'm 52, my earning potential is so f**king huge.

      Literally be better off shelf stacking in Asda on a night shift Which I think is pretty decent money isn’t it? Rather than getting shafted by Amazon by the sounds of it.

      The missus sent me a link to Aldi, working the shop was 12.50 days, mad isn't it?

      Amazon are taking on people down here and the problem is they know people are desperate for work and are almost taking the kids.

      The more I've checked into it today the worse I've felt about it. It's literally to the bone that you can scrape a meagre living, never mind paying a mortgage and getting the kids through school.

      This country's just getting worse, the job I was doing ten years ago is paying less now, only pennies less but ten years down the line and the cost of living has risen but the wages have gone down and now they're going to use covid to make it worse.

      I am pissed that guys take advantage of girls. I thought I met a great guy online and after almost 2 months, he asked me to be his girlfriend and I said yes. We have been together for 9 months and he now ghosted me. He stopped talking to me a week ago. The last thing he said to me that he was in Chicago and he was excited to see me in 4 days. He had to take a COVID test since he was coming back from the trip. I trusted this guy and fell for him. I don't even know where to begin. My heart is broken and I am so angry.

      Mate that's not good. Give it a few more days mate, anything could of happened for him to not contact you. Don't lose heart just yet mate.

      Hope you hear from him soon.

      My cousin makes a very good living at that but over here the market is becoming a bit saturated and might be difficult to break into.

      Just reading what you've said and I don't want be the foreteller of doom but he may not be ghosting you, something may have happened so he can't contact you.

      Thanks for the suggestion mate but it's not really something you can just blow into really is it? If I hired someone to decorate for me I'd expect a top job. I'm quite handy DIY wise but doing it at a level to please a paying punter is another thing entirely.

      As the father of three daughters, let me confirm what you already know/suspect, most guys are just.....disappointing.

      But I know from only the briefest interactions (related to North American preseason tours) that you have an outstanding quality of kindness. That is extremely rare to find in this world - and there will be somebody worthwhile and exceptional who will know that and act accordingly. Hang in there young lady!

      I'm not pissed off per se, but I am looking for a bit of advice and there seems to be some of that given in here so here I go.

      I just started working overnights (11 p.m. to 7 a.m.) for the first time in my life. I was furloughed from my job in June due to CoVid cuts and after working retail as a makeweight, I'm working in Communications at a hospital. Anyway, I'm trying to adjust my internal clock re sleep schedule.

      I tried staying up as late as I could in the days prior to starting the shift (my training was during the day) and then sleeping later. But  now that I've started I am getting through the shift OK, but I can only sleep for 3-4 hours after work. That is definitely starting to catch up to this old man.

      I'm ordinarily a light sleeper so we bought some new curtains that really do the job of keeping the light out of the bedroom during daylight hours. My kids are mostly gone during the day so the noise is cut out, and I have a white noise maker next to the bed anyway. I don't think any "Thing" is waking me up. I just wake up.

      Anyone with any tips on making the change to a nocturnal schedule?

      I always think it’s interesting when people on night shifts go home and try to go to sleep straight away. If you worked a 9-5 day shift Would you go home at 5 and go straight to bed?
      Personally I’d go home at 7 stay up till around 1 then go to bed till 7/8 ready to go to work for 11
