I have been entertained by this thread, when I haven't been too busy being saddened if not outright terrified by it.
I was going to post about my older brother in the "Beggers/Moochers/Scammers" thread, but I thought I might share this little nugget about his PD. Actually, I think he didn't commit PD as much as basically murder his own employment with his S.S.-ness, but I'll let you guys read for yourselves:
Though he is currently an unemployed sponge, years ago my brother had just got a new job. He has a disability, so this job was found for him through the aid of a special employment service. He contacted his new bosses and informed them that he wanted to start his new job...by taking his allotted vacation.
Yes, he basically wanted to put off actually coming in to his new job, but using the time off that being employed in this new job made him eligible for! Is anyone else's brain broken yet? Oh wait, it gets better.
When (unsurprisingly) his new employer told him that "I'm afraid that won't be possible," Super Sponge got angry...and...QUIT.
In this last year (keeping in mind what kind of shape our U.S. economy/unemployment are in), his Royal Loaf has turned down jobs that the employment agency has found for him because they don't pay enough.
Again unsurprisingly, the employment agency has now told him that they can't really do anything else for him, and are closing his file. So he has proven to excel at the advanced form of Preemptive PD. If he won't even APPLY, I suppose that saves others the trouble of not hiring him, or firing him.
Not only has my brother killed his employment, his has systematically destroyed even the faintest employment possibilities and now seems determined to bury his future six feet under in the cold hard ground. Because the world owes him you see, and he shouldn't have to work if he doesn't want to, and surely his siblings will bail him out... yeah he's gonna get a rude awakening on that last one.
