    I usually get 3 to 5 calls a day from agencies (this is my metric of a good day on the bench). The last 2 months were dead and I was lucky to get one call.

    I am on now 2 or 3 calls a day.

    Light at the end of the tunnel and all that.

    Q. how are you still on the bench if you're getting 3 - 5 calls a day off agencies (or 2-3 for that matter)?

    Have you learned nothing over the last four years about the perils of asking cretins what they think?

    Looking good people!
