    I had a Sunday paper round back in the early nineties, which kept me in bongs. That was quite a high rate.

    Had a one day contract for £5 up in Wigan once. Spent £3 of it on a pie and lost the change while sat on the tulipter in wallgate so all in all I was down on the day. Some arsehole picked it up and wouldn't roll it back. Should have used North western but the blue lights mess with my head.

    Should have got a role as along tester, would have been a lot higher rate than a paper round

    Highest rate worked was over 2 hours in a day. It was a stressful time.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
