What if I knew someone who had NEVER had a job at 48 years old[since leaving school] but brags about his 'social' work... and also has umpteen mini holidays all over Britain,and expects to inherit property from his mother, is it unreasable that I detest and despise him?

I understand what you prob mean, which i think is the fact he brags about it that you dont like. I dont hate anyone who has a bit of luck ie inheriting property from their mother. But i too dont like people who brag all the time.

It's not jealousey, who would want to live like that really. He only brags about it because he has nothing else going on in his life to talk about!

brags about his 'social' work...

Elaborate....What social work?.....is he receiving benefits?.....
does he live with his Mother?......without knowing all the facts
it's hard to pass an opinion.

sounds a little of jealousy, however i too am very annoyed by these people, and ok perhaps a little jealous... but i feel that our 'hatred' towards them is completely founded, in the fact that we get up, go to work, pay taxes, and then watch them taxes go to people like that to throw it back in our faces.

Phlegm, certainly can't blame you for your rather unfriendly feelings towards this crettin.
I wouldn't hate, despise or be jealous of him. The emotion that rises up in my opinion is that he has to be an arrogant wet nelly, a big girls blouse and a spoilt brat all rolled into one , for whom there would be no tolerance, interest or even the slightst morsel of respect. If he can't respect himself, how can he expect it in return?
No...., he's going nowhere on his inheritance, it takes more than money to make a person likeable and his social work is no doubt handing out leaflets at a supermarket (whoops! i.e.if he can stoop to such levels).

You've asked the forum to judge someone a 'cheat and scrounger' based on some slightly rabid scraps of opinion you've told us... Is it a family member? In-law maybe?

Whatever this person has or hasn't done with their life, hasn't stopped you doing whatever you have or haven't done with your life.

You sound jealous to me, asking people to join in with your resentment. Try and take responsibility for your own unfulfilled existence before you ask strangers to blame someone else for it. That's as diplomatic as I can put it. frown

Phlegm, there is obviously something you need to get of your chest.
