    The Joys of Being A Permie

    Any rugby fans will know that yesterday Leicester tigers got stung big time by London Wasps. Personally, I prefer to watch footballers than a bunch of egg chasers, however, I digress.

    Including myself, there are three contractors, turning up bright and breezy at 8am this morning and ready to go. The other four permies in my office, went to Twickenham yesterday to watch the Tigers get stuffed and proceeded to drink their commiserations until the early hours of this morning. All four rolled in at 10am (hour and half late) all with eyes like piss-holes in snow (one is still half pissed I’m convinced) and they’re taking some delight in having a dig at us three because we’re working hard and enthusiastically whilst all they can do is each bacon cobs and moan about how sh1t they feel.

    What is it with some permies? Out on the piss, late for work and will still get paid a full day?

    Or do some contractors go out on the piss, late for work next day and still claim for a full day?

    Am I just getting old?

    Contractors are there to get the job done. Permies are there to take a salary and do as little as they can get away with. Its why contractors are needed, be grateful!

          Well I'll find out on Thursday morning!

          Luckily my permie boss is a football fan so he understands, I'll just say that I'll make the hours up on Friday afternoon when everyone else has gone home... and then go at the normal time.
