I'm sure I'm not the only person who'll be demanding pictures!
I was going to procrastinate but I think I'll leave it till tomorrow

The job I've accepted in order to get out of low-paid teaching and into a realistic prospect of a pension isn't that gret aktully. The perks are excellent but it feels like starting yet another apprenticeship. It's the eighth time I've been here.

The war is over but the fallout has just begun. At least I took the right step and walked away from one job. I'll miss the money but not the hassle and the early starts.

My entire approach to work has changed philosophically over the last couple of years. If I'd seriously wanted a career of some kind, I should have been fucking people over twenty years ago. It's too late now.

Work is -- when you boil it down -- the process of converting time into food and shelter by means of labour. I will not be judged on the status or merit of the work I do, nor will I allow an employer, ever again, to convince me that there is anything more to our relationship than my expending time in their service and them compensating me for it. Them expecting me to work for no pay is as insulting as me expecting them to pay me for no work.

Do I have food? Do I have shelter? Then I've done enough work to serve its purpose.

Cheers

After the work i have lost this year for various reasons i am never going to recommend anyone else again and i am never going to let anyone else know my business and i am never going to do anyone else any favors.

The biggest mistake i ever made this year or ever was recommending another company.

Never Ever Again.


I dont trust anyone anymore.

Wise words, mate. I feel the same way, especially the bit about fucking people over. I really think it's too late for me now too, hence accepting a graduate entry-level post 16 years after graduating. I have come to see work as just something I have to do to pay my way, and if it's well paid and comfortable then so much the better.

How I wish I'd understood this most basic of life lessons 20 years ago.  I've been shafted be employers I "trusted" so often that you could drive a rad-wagon up my metaphorical jacksee - entire years of my life have vanished into pits of unpaid overtime, of 7-day weeks and 14-hour days, as I worked to get projects finished because We're All In This Together, It Has To Be Done, And It'll Be Better Soon.  Now that I'm on the other side of the fence, I do my best not to be that bastard, but so often it's impossible:  no matter what extra lengths someone has gone to, no matter how much I like and respect the person, when there's no money in the bank I can't pay them. You can soften things by stretching contracts out beyond sense,  buying pints, souping up expenses, and insisting that people only work the hours they're paid for, but ultimately it's "thanks for everything, see ya".  That's work.
