THE BEST THING ABOUT MINE IS THAT WE USE CAPS LOCK ALL THE TIME AND SOMETIMES WE GET ICE CREAM.
Different beds though

Also there are some lovely girls here. Thats it.
me no grammar
a serious injury.
and that im leaving next sunday
-Exposing the Council for being morally bankrupt
-Exposing the Council for being actually bankrupt
-Going to summer fetes and reporting on the quality of their Hog Roasts
-Letters to the Editor
-Editorial Mettings at the pub
it's great - I just do an extra half hour of nothing a few days a week, and at the end of the month I get to take a whole day off!
Best thing: there's so little to actually do I spend all my time arsing around on the internet.
Worst thing: there's so little to actually do I spend all my time arsing around on the internet.
all in my head
and the free laptop :D
you win at life.
between the building, the people and the fact that things very quite significantly from day to day.
the presence of many lovely old ladies and men who tell me that i have a lovely voice and am very nice
the fact that it's a 16 minute walk from my new house
it pays well
i am really good at it
what kind of job is this?
would have been awesome
I wish I'd thought of that :)
the dogs are in real life, the old people are on the phone. sometimes people cry down the phone though which isn't nice.
i work in an office. the dogs belong to the other office workers. i don't work with the dogs directly.
So there's quite a lot of perks even though the job itself is soul-destryoing... like flexitime. Now that I've been on flexitime I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get a job without it.
The fact that I'm leaving in 5 weeks is the biggest perk of all.
it felt like being in a really unstrict school
by far and away the least valued part of the public sector, in every sense, but especially financially.
then when I left I got a nice redundancy package, I cant complain, but yeah I couldnt have done it forever.
I don't despise it, but it does bore the shit out of me. I feel pretty undervalued but then I don't do much anyway.
I can't say I'll miss it.
and the fact it is challenging. Not the organisation of trips offshore.
they let me work 3 days a week when i want
that they leave me here on my own on friday nights/saturdays and pay me time and a half to watch films on my laptop and play guitar hero
& the fact that i'm leaving in 4 weeks to be a teacher!
and i can listen to music all day :)
Flex time too!
My 'office library'.
though I went for an interview today for a supermarket. The supermarket are trying a new thing where they "twin" a smaller store with a larger one and shift stock from store to store to sell it when it's needed.
Basically i'd be walking up and down glasgow's busiest shopping street all day with carrier bags of shopping.
It sounds terrible but could be quite fun once I find a way to make it easy.
i asked for advance pay and he gave me it in cash from the till. another time he offered to lend me money from his personal account because i had some money trouble. and he lets me do pretty much anything i want.
which keeps me frosty.
one of my best friends works in the same office and my shift team are absolute winners.
