Hello! Newbie contractor, GSOH seeks client with fat wallet for NSA fun.

New to the forum, have lurked a little and need some jargon busting. Have seen a few that I think I get:

bob = bob a job = low rate contractor?

bench = on the bench = between contracts?

tulip = eh? swear filter?

Any more little in-house memes I should be aware of? :happy

Hello :wave:

Now it would be simple if we told you, but as a contractor you should be adept at finding information out for yourself!

Thats not quite a bob in standard CUK jargon.

Off the top of my head you might also need:
winker & potnoodle
