It's the estimated value of the contract
You can't use speech marks on here??? This makes no sense now. Ignore
in a way that avoids the use of speech marks.
single doesn't work. It's another Evil Sean Adams plot.
Thanks for that. ""Cheers""
What's the big deal?
Things I fucking hate about being a temp:
Being referred to as 'The temp'. At quite a few places, including my last 'assignment' this happened right in front of me, IT'S FUCKING RUDE! MY NAME IS SOPHIA.
Being the whole offices dogsbody.
Let a pile of filing build up on your desk cos you haven't bothered to do any for the last 6 months? Give it to the temp! Who has already been given everyone elses mundane bits
I fucking hate this fucking recession.
so now have a ton of work to do which she will get absolutely no appreciation for.
People telling me 'It must be great being the temp, you don't have to worry about finishing your work because you won't be here for long' Err actually it means I work really hard so I can keep the job for as long as possible or in the vain hope they will be impressed with me and ask me to stay on.
Doing other peoples work for them, running around with feet that are KILLING ME, while the two people I'm supposed to be working with are on the internet all day.
There's loads more little things but I try not to hold onto my rage about things.
- When talking about the language 'Afrikaans' says: "Oh so people actually speak it?"
- When discussing WW2 makes the fatal error of mixing up Germany and Holland and when corrected says: "Same difference really"
- When talking about a project launching in Jamaica, he asked whether we would be charging the Jamaican client the same amount as what we charge the UK client. Upon querying why he thought we would charge less, his reasoning was that as Jamaica is a really poor country he thought we would be fair and charge them cheaper. This of course is a global client we're talking about.
"went of her own accord" line
We won't do business in many countries because of poor credit/corruption. I think Jamaica would be one of those
within its Jamaican division.
I wouldn't mind a site visit if we did business in the Caribbean
