    Following on from RyanAir possibly charging for use of toilets, I'm opening this one up for abuse!

    My daily rate - £5.

    Client: Great, can you start 8.30 tomorrow morning?

    Yes of course. You do realise that I charge £70 for a start pre-12? Don't worry, you're still getting me very cheaply..

    Client: Ok, that sounds reasonable. Now you are happy working with Solaris?

    Yes, of course, plenty of experience there, and I only charge £80 daily for the Unix annoyance factor....

    etc etc

    You want validation on that form?
    This is discretionary and will incur a charge of £50, plus a checking-in charge of £20.

    Rate: £1 an hour
    Surcharge for not being asleep: £59 an hour
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Wouldn't work.

    Client would simply start charging for access to CUK.

    I'll leave you to figure out what PPS stands for.
