They can't stop you talking to anyone - it's a free country. However they can modify the way they deal with you based on what you do. So they might, for example, decide to sack you rather than...

Savings don't automatically stop you getting JSA. There's a minimum amount you always get (as long as you meet the other conditions).

I've heard that some people get them while they're at the pub. How convenient. Seems to one bloke doing the whole country though - goes by the name of Bob :D

Why bother with the rigmarole of going to the Post Office? Just do it online. I think they said you can set up a direct debit with the new system so even less hassle.

That's where the TrueCall unit comes in. If the caller number is not known they are invited to say their name then the unit 'calls' your phone and plays it for you. You then have the choice of...

It's technically possible but requires that the originating carrier provide that information.

That's rude. I suspect that being atheist is not the real issue here - they seem to have a minor personality defect as well. They'd probably do other similarly rude things even if they were...

There's no point. A lot of them originate from outside the UK and nothing can be done about those. Much as I detest cold calls I don't hold with this relatively modern nonsense of demanding that...

You can do that as well. Turkey & Tinsel isn't normally a Christmas trip. It's a sort of 'pre-Christmas' get together that's just based on Christmas fare. A way of having Christmas twice ;)

And of course one day they discover that management were only pretending all along. It's amazing how quickly good will and family atmosphere evaporate when the accountants stop smiling.

You don't have to share the entertainment but that's a large part of it. The others might think you're a bit odd going on a trip like that then spending all your time away from the group.

Nah. They can go back to school/college and develop a more valuable skillset. That way they should get a bit more job security.

That depends how you define 'old' but at 25/28 you would probably be the youngest there. Whether that's a problem or not depends on the crowd and how well you can interact with people older than you...

Don't keep personal information anywhere. It's an office. Your place of work, not a second home. I suspect a lot of your problems come from you trying to make the place too personal.
