    Default New contract; 1st 1000 euros

    In my second day in new contract, have just had a celebratory cup of tea for the first 1000 euros of money earnt. Shall do the same at 2000, 5000, 10000, etc while smiling wryly at permie testers. Is this weird? Do others do this?

    I do that... I've cut down to one cup every two weeks.

    OK; test team have had no leadership for months and have really very little overview of what they have to do, but all say they have too much work to do. Am busy showing them who’s the boss.

    Are you officially the boss or do they simply need a bit of structure wot you can bring?

    Either way it doesn't sound too bad. Congrats!

    the only problem is you had to wait untill day 2 for your tea.

    change the rate so you can have a 1000 EUR celeb cup every day.
