My husband is a chronic offender. He is a self confessed pain killer addict, has suffered migraines often and in my opinion is too reliant on powerful
Medications to combat this ailment. He (without thinking) told my cousin who shared how high her level of access to pain medication was. He told her how lucky she was. She is dying of cancer.

Aaah I probably have a million to share, but my brain is not working right now so can't think of any.

It absolutely does my tree in when people take the p!ss out of those with disabilities. Or call someone spastic or spaz. I normally ask 'do you know what the word spastic means?' uuuurm noo is usually the answer. My brother has problems with spasticity, and I work with disabled kids, especially cerebral palsy, so I get upset when I see people the mick out of people who struggle with speech - they automatically assume they're 'thick' just because a couple of muscles in their mouth don't work. AAAGGRRHHH!!!
Oh and I'm quite sensitive to all the othe main issues too LGBT, racism, basically ignorance of most sorts :-/. Don't talk up though - wish I had the confidence to!
Rant over :-)

People often complain to me about how everyone at Centrelink are incompetent, rude morons. My mother works at Centrelink and she is a lovely lady. It makes me sick to my stomach that every day she is being abused, sworn at and generally disrespected. She's just trying to do her job and remember every single nook and cranny of the entire welfare system. Not to mention being a 55 year old woman trying to deal with an entirely computerised Government system.
Everyone seems to just have this disrespectful attitude when it comes to talking about Centrelink that people don't realise I don't share.
