    Default Happy Contractor Day!

    The special day once every four years when contractors can bill an extra day while permies work for free like the chumps they are!

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Does one politely keep quiet and carry on invoicing?

    Or wave round wads of fifties? And then moan about the cost of buyers and super cars?

    I vocalise how the extra day throws my company accounts out of whack as year end is 28th Feb, but then I subtlety throw in the fact I can earn an extra day so it balances out

    I'm sure they value the 6.5p
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.
