Red Tape is the new Black!

Ok so, well two posts in one day........obviously there is a lot happening huh???

Well all i have to say is........why the hell do state government departments have to make just even the smallest of any request to well huge request so bloody hard???

Ok to explain in depth here, I currently live with my parents in the inner south west suburbs of Sydney in a NSW Department of Housing house. Now i have lived in this house and suburb for well, about close to nearly 12-13 years (not including the time i moved out and lived with the biggest mistake of my life) and due to my disability plus the age of the house, being it was built in the 1950's and made from double brick, modifications to make this house accessible for a wheelchair are pretty slim to no chance.

Yet you think that based on that alone and my deteriorating health (which i am trying to get back to normal, well at least to a certain degree) would allow for a simple transfer right????

To quote Kellis here "I DON'T THINK SO!"

No because apparently of my wage, being it is a little bit over the threshold, they have denied the transfer request twice. The first one came in Dec last year and it now seems the new request has been denied and we have to apply for a reconsideration on that request.

Now here comes the catch, both times i have been told it is because of my wage right and i am going to put it to you like this. If someone came up to you and asked, oh instead of getting lets say $26 an hour, can you go to about $15 per hour for work wage, what would you say???

Think about it, it doesn't take a genius to work out what the answer would be (HELL NO! In my case, but lets just say i used other...ah wording LOL)

Now the only good thing is the we are getting some sort of help from people who actually know what we should be doing and i won't go into further details there, but unlike before where everyone said one thing, but actually meant another (In other words back stabbing!!) we know what we should do to try and at least get a reconsideration made!

All i can say is that after running around trying to get all the documentation needed for this transfer request, then trying to find out what is happing, getting told "spin" in a way and also getting no where in the end - red tape seems to really be the new black in this case.

It's no wonder why NSW government is in a downhill spiral! just seems to "spin" its self right round, round round LOL

The only thing that makes me tissed off about all this, is that people who do the right things and try their best to look after such old places like ours that have mould growing on ceilings and wall (which we are trying to clean as much as possible), a roof that needs to be replaced after having new tiles put on it because the rafters are in need of replacement that it makes you wonder why they spent money on getting new tiles, only in the end to have to get the whole roof replaced, painting both inside and outside plus new carpets......the list is just endless.

And yet the NSW government says that tenants are happy and the housing is getting better. Where does Nathan come from again and is he really living in a Utopia Sydney, cause if so, where do i sign up to move in their!

Oh well, might have to go out and by a red tape special dress or something, that might just cheer me up.........
