        I've been contacted by 3 different agencies I've never used before about the same role - it's one I'm not interested in, although the amount of work and rate were pretty good. I'd already recommended a friend for it to another agency and he's had 2 interviews for it so far. This hints that the 3 agencies contacting me are a bit behind the ball on it.
        Got contacted today by another agency about a 6 month part time role, 1 day a week on site, 1 day WFH. Reasonable rate, but the agency are not one i'd choose to work through and frankly if I wanted a 2 day a week role, I'd take it in the summer, not winter. But I'm going to stick with what I've got.

          I received an email today inviting me to apply to be a social sciences lecturer at a college in Worthing.

          I would dearly love to know what key words on my CV suggests I'd be remotely suitable for that job.

            Because you are good in social situations, albeit with a gin and tonic in hand and gave me a right lecturing at one point

              The words "glutton" and "punishment" come to mind.

                I thought you paid me to do that?

                    If that's how you interpreted it.

                    I interpreted as him telling the poster who ask the dumb question to piss off.

                      I guess another mod butt hurt with the deserved inactivity here, do you normally tell your fellow contractors to piss off?

                      laughable
