My job searching threw up a message from my welfare advisor telling me there is a call centre rep conducting interviews right at the welfare centre next Wednesday and to contact her to let her know I can attend – not attending could stop my welfare payments so I hardly had a choice. I had no e-mail address for her to contact her with but she had phoned me once and I got her number off the last caller number system at the time. She was startled that I rang her and demanded that I e-mail her. I told her that I had no e-mail address for her. She insisted that I did as she had sent me e-mails. I knew I hadn’t received any from her. She just insisted that I never phone her again on the number I have, and hung up. Shortly later she rang back apologetic as she had my e-mail address listed incorrectly and her messages to me had bounced. She corrected my address and sent a message but for a completely different job than the one I’d seen on her job monitoring page for me, so I now how two interviews on one day. I went for a walk through one of Preston’s lovely public parks and returned to the flat after a little shopping. Arthur Chappell

Some people have no idea sometimes. I'm glad she apologised.

Dang. Some people are so rude, but at least she became of her unacceptable behavior and apologized.

She's still vague on times of events and a few other details though @Corbin5
