    TBH, am surprised you came back after she replied with 6 words to that massive paragraph you wrote for her :lol:

    Anyway, no matter what I, or you say, we will never experience the hardship that Holson and her hubby have to deal with on a daily basis. They have bills, food and other things to pay for. With this thing called money, and it needs to be earned. And that's hard.

    So when you have those things on your plate, then you can give advice. Got it? :unimpressed:

    I happen to also live with my fiancé in a flat which has to be paid for. And I'm a student as she hopes to soon be. :eek2:
    And between January 2014 and one whole week ago I had no income whatsoever - we had to survive on my fiancé's pay (which is minimum wage). How'd you like that?

    Na, you must be lying, only Holson experiences such life lessons Nobody has it that hard. Only her and the husband.

    Even then, you don't have to walk, and apply for jobs, and owe 22 quid to the devil.

    No... but I do have to put up with speaking a different language every day (and studying a degree taught in it :eek3:). Getting to that stage has been a pain in the arse, let me tell you.

    Please **** off I am sick and tired of people like you having a go at me for being so anxiety-ridden about stuff like this. I can't help being so scared about stuff it's just me. Everyone is entitled to worry, just because you don't think it's worth worrying about it doesn't give you an excuse to be so mean about it.

    My original question was is there a website I make the payment to, but everyone just told me how to make twenty quid...

    Mods, please closr the thread because I am THIS close to completely losing it

    You are the most over dramatic person I have ever met. No wonder you were picked on at University. You act like a victim for attention, and then tragically play it off like other people are being nasty too you, when in fact you act like a fool.

    Step away, try not to take this **** so personally. It's just the internet. People on the internet (especially on TSR, a lot of the time) are dicks. No-one here knows you. If something is making you feel bad, go do something else - just a tip from experience. I hope you feel better soon.

    If OP's husband is on minimum wage working, I don't understand how she can't easily pay back £20?

    40 hours/week at £6.50/hour is £260. Per week, let's say rent is £100, food is £40 between 2, bills are £25 between 2, travel is £20. That's £185. Throw on an extra £50 in case I under-estimated how much some of these things cost, you're looking at £235 weekly expenditure.

    By my calculations, you can pay back £20 quite easily after 1 week. :lol: Or am I missing something here?

    Oh and I forgot - if OP is unemployed, she's claiming job seekers allowance I assume? That's a further £60/week. So it should be extremely easy to pay back £20.

    He gets £300 a week. (Roughly £1200 a month). Rent is £195 a week. Bills are £42 a week (20 council tax, 7 water, 15 gas/leccy). Food is £25 a week. Petrol is £35 a week. I'm not on job seekers.

    You should be on job seekers. That's an extra £60 per week. You can't just keep sponging off him. You need to be looking for work if you're not in uni.

    And why does he have a car when he's barely earning above minimum wage and paying almost £200 in rent? :facepalm: Some people need to get their priorities in order.

    Because he works 90 min drive away. I am looking for work. Hence the 430 applications. We live in a city and the houses with parking aren't cheap

    Ner. JSA could go to somebody more in need of it than her. Apparently.

    Because obviously JSA is on a first come first serve basis, where it will eventually run out. She is being so considerate sacrificing £60 a week for others.

    How does your OH pay for car tax and car insurance? On street parking? A Phone contract? Possibly Broadband?

    He's only saving 3 quid a week to cover all that?

    What the hell, I've never heard such rubbish. :lol:

    Get on job seekers, OP. Why the **** aren't you on it already? It's £60 a week, which would make a big difference to your life. They also put you on the work programme after 9 months if you haven't found work.

    Parking is free lol. He's paid his tax and insurance already and it isn't due for a while. Our broadband is free for 18 months. He is on PAYG

    Exactly. It's a benefit any unemployed person is entitled to, proving they are looking for work :lol:

    I used to (I've never said it will 'run out' as the above user said, I just said the money could go somewhere more deserving than myself) but I was treated like **** and I've had enough of that so I gave up. They didn't help me get a job at all, just basically said 'are you applying, ok good here's your £60'. They looked down their nose at me like I was scum and more, which I won't go into.
