Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea?
Alternatively titled .. Dead Man Walking .. or should that be Dead Man Wanking?
Why wanking? Read on ..
It’s been a while since I wrote any of my nonsense, I’ve been busy, working too hard over the past year and not even had a week off since the Easter furlough back in April 2018, when for one reason or another I didn’t get off on holiday anywhere.
Even at Christmas and New Year, I only had 2 days and 1 day off work respectively.
That’s pretty unhealthy really.
There’s been reasons, a big project consuming my time, it went live in April and if you use the global companies services in the UK, then you’’ll most likely be processed by it. I’m quite proud of it.
Add on top of the 10 hour day an extra 2 hours for commuting, It’s way too long, for far too long.
But that’s about to change,
I’m a contractor, self-employed, I love working myself, but the powers that be here want to reduce their budget and have employed a couple of staff replacements. They guy who is my direct replacement is a complete prick, loud-mouthed, thinks he’s clever, tries too hard to impress, talks when he should be listening and sticks his foot in it big time.
Now I’m a dead man walking, my contract is up in 2 weeks’ time and I’m not being fed any new work, just handing over to big-mouth.
Or is that dead man wanking, as all I’m doing now is fucking about and trying to keep myself looking busy.
The good thing about this job is I’ve banked a few quid, well I had until a few weeks ago when I paid the mortgage off.
A 6 figure mortgage is a £700pm payment vs 6 figures in the bank and £40pm interest.
A no brainer really, why pay the bank when they don’t pay you?
No mortgage .. Free at last, free at last, thank The Lord almighty, I’m free at last!.
Well I ‘m mortgage free, still got a few quid in the bank and it will be fantastic to have a break for a while.
I might even take off the full summer, I think I deserve it.
PS – Weren’t the Celtic shit at the weekend .. getting well beat by the new team in blue that plays out of Ibrox.
A clear out is required., drop the dead-wood, the has-beens and the never-beens.
On the plus side, we have the money in the bank to make the changes, but is there the will?
