Brendan:networkn: LOL this is amazing.
I find it fascinating.
But I suspect our foci are quite different.
What would you be doing right now if there was no WINZ ?
Interesting... But I have a better one:
What would YOU be doing right now if there was no WINZ Mr Networkn?
We always hear that question aimed at beneficiaries, but we never hear an intelligent answer from those who criticize.
Well you seem wound up already so I imagine you are preparing your soapbox, however, you have appeared to have missed the point, and perhaps once you get it, you can drop the tude..
I was simply saying, that when you are given assistance like the type that WINZ provides, they are completely within their rights to ask you to meet simple prerequisites. Being asked to attend a seminar (Boring or not) in exchange for many thousands of dollars a year, so you can feed yourself, clothe yourself and put a roof over your head, is entirely within reasonable limits.
For him to have such an attitude such as "up yours WINZ" at being told he would need to attend regardless of his plumbing issue, leads me to believe he doesn't appreciate the help, in which case, perhaps he should find an alternative source of free money!
As for what I'd do if I had no money and no WINZ? Simple. Anything I needed to do to cover the bills, including but not limited to... Door to Door job searching for Lawn Mowing, gardening, digging ditches, milking cows, sweeping floors, delivering pamplets.
