    Swearing no, threats (i.e. I am going to kill you etc etc) possibly I've
    but never heard of it.

    If it's a one off incedent the DWp will probably forgive and forget.

    It is par for the course when dealing with people with MH problems, and that
    is only the staff, they are worse than children, give them a biro and a
    piece of paper and they think they are running the country, some customers
    can be just as bad.

    Sorry, can't resist this.
    Running the country? Try this quote from Yes Minister.

    Hacker: Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the
    papers:
    The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country;
    The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the
    country;
    The Times is read by the people who actually do run the country;
    The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country;
    The Financial Times is read by people who own the country;
    The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be
    run by another country;
    And The Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.
    Sir Humphrey: Prime Minister, what about the people who read The Sun?
    Bernard: Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's
    got big tits.
