    Default Life on the Bench - An unemployed contractors story

    Day 63 in the unemployed house.

    Got called 5 times today, for 4 different jobs.

    All 550ish (apart from the one up here, which was 45 per hour).

    Spent the afternoon in the boozer, and had a nice pub lunch.

    Looking to get up around half 10ish tomorrow.

    Only got about 5k left in the bank

    By day 1000

    Got called for one job last month

    4.75 an hour

    Never go to the pub - never sober enough

    Get out of bed - what for?

    Minus 50k in the bank

    Do you ever get the urge to phone round high class escorts and tell them you earn more than they do.

    I've met her. The rate she is talking about is for a high class escort. Well in her case a Mark 2.

    Surely 550 is a weekly rate for North Eastern call girls

    Well Troll Sally has had to cut down. I've heard she's finding it difficult to find punters who want to shag her and then let her give them 550 for it.

    If you are getting offers of 550 why aren't you taking them?

    This made me laugh. Having met her myself too I am going to guess that she will find this funny too...
