Once, I was so bad at jobseeking, let alone actually being employed, that they moved me from jobseekers allowance (JSA) to employment and support allowance (ESA). The rates were the same - I was under 25, so it was £127 or thereabouts, every fortnight. Then, one morning after a house party, with some solid friends and a bit of wishful thinking, I checked my bank balance. There was 1200 motherbloody pounds in there. Turns out on ESA, they actually give you more money for being crap at life, and the amount was £247 every fortnight, so they gave me a rebate without ever telling me anything about it.
Needless to say, I just lol'd at the free money and spent it all experience collecting, which is a trendy and vague way of admitting that I am a filthy drug addict.
