    Re abuse..my response is...report and address. My response is re people complaining there are no jobs. btw, my mum is back doing some work this year at the age 0f 70 (despite the fact that she does not have to work to survive financially). After a short break (due to having to take care of her very elderly parents) - back to doing teaching and consulting at least part time.
    P.S i never supported abuse but iam opposed to people using the statements such as ''some jobs are not fair'' as an excuse. Not fair? report and take legal action and search for next one thats it!

    So you're making no effort to respond to the point I was making. Thanks, but I already knew that.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Your post is misinterpreting my point. All in all, I find it amazing that instead of celebrating smart work, hard work and excellence - so many people celebrate failure - i understand though, it is a politically correct thing to do

    Btw, if someone is identified as ''underprivileged'' and provided with multiple opportunities to change life for the better over the year but prefers to waste life rather than take those opportunities - where and when does the person's responsibility for own well being come into the picture?

    Back at Post #1763 you said:

    Several degrees but does not mind working as a carer.
    Btw, my parents also work in their 70's while they do not have to.

    So if someone can retrain to be carer at 74, why can it not be done at the age of 50?
    So are you urging people to reskill to get a better job or to unskill to get an unskilled job?
