Still out of work with a multitude of musculoskelatal issues, so I signed on with some agency that can help rejects like me find dumb dumb work that I may or may not be able to do. Just got a call asking about some questions they missed off the list when I visited.

Sexual orientation
Ethnic group
Religious beliefs

I kinda saw my arse after I was offered British but not English. I could be Irish if I so chose. I declined to answer any of the questions and have to ask if the box tickers in government really need to know. Why does an employer need to know such very personal information? Does being gay help me stack that fucking shelf better? No? does being straight help better then? no? So why ask it?

Northern Irish is British, Republic is not and they ask questions like that for bureaucratic reasons; ie: to not piss off anyone.

If they ask it so they don't piss people off, why is it that I'm pissed off? :)

So.... gays stack the low shelves and straights stack the high ones? LOL. :) I bet I'm even allowed to fucking sya that these days.
