Well I got the job, screws the agreed payout from an insurance policy (that was due to cover the mortgage 2 months too late) but at least I don't have to transform into a fat chav with 12 kids thats drinks WD40 for signing on day. Half what I've previosuly been earning and 21 miles each way currently by a bus then a train. Such hardship .... but anyway, I'm no longer 'one of those' so as you were
Dave, (not wishing to speak for Liverbird) it's off the bottom line, profit, something that you could draw from the business to reward your hard work as a businessman (and then pay tax on), it's essential expenditure. Unless Mr LB is bathing in oysters and stuffing credit cards in birds knickers.
I've just come back from an interview that looks hopeful and I'm sure we will get back on top, I always do.
I'm aware not everyone was generalising but for the few that made some comments you should consider that you might offend some one who has frequently worked 100 hour weeks, often worked 36hrs straight in one go and without any sleep all in order to provide for a familly.
I'ts far to easy to sit behind a desk in your 9 to 5, feeling secure and make stupid ar$e comments. Do you know how belittling it feels to have to accept benefits if your a decent hardworking person.
