Dumb reasons people have had their benefits docked

This Tumblr collects some of the worst reasons. For example:

You get a job that starts in two weeks time. You don’t look for work while you are waiting for the job to start. You’re sanctioned.

You are forced to retire due to a heart condition, and you claim Employment and Support Allowance. During your assessment you have a heart attack. You are sanctioned for not completing your assessment.

I’m all for the idea that those claiming benefits but in our pursuit of a small number of ‘scroungers’ we do seem to lost all sense of proportion when it comes to welfare.
