I am 70+ years of age and had to visit my local centrelink office today in Taree. I explained my problem to the staff member at the door who told me I couldn't be helped as there was no staff available to do so. If I wanted to wait 3 or 4 hours I might get someone to help me. Needless to say I left very annoyed. For god sake with the amount of people looking for work why is there no staff? Friendly and compassionate staff would also help a great deal.
