So I had to fill in the honesty declaration for my relationship status for Centrelink and I couldn’t help but giggle about what my best friend wrote to confirm my single status.
Gotta love her 😂
Single mum, and member of the Australian Single Mum Support Facebook Group.
The complete Centrelink Form answer reads:
”Katie realised a long time ago that men are not loyal, not honest, talk too much, steal the remote and they smell.
She understood that being single, life could be run her way and devote all her time to her children and her profession.
She loves her children, herself and her job. That’s why she prefers to have dogs in her life who will sit on command, eat what she serves them, will sleep all day and be out of her way, don’t leave their clothes on the floor and don’t speak.
Katie hates that having a partner changes who you are and she isn’t looking for that change anytime soon, and if she needs a change it’s going to be the colour of her nail polish.”
We think Katie has a pretty great BFF there – it’s not often you get a laugh out of Centrelink forms, but she definitely nailed it!
