    Seriously, Do People Really Love Being Unemployed?

    It's boring beyond belief because there's nothing to do, no one to hang out with and no money to do those things you want to do like go to a cafe or have a drink. You can't join sports teams or clubs because you can't afford to get there, let alone take part. Even if you do go...
