Yeah, if a lightning rod likes to regale his team with stories about the women he almost scored.

Lightning Rod would be a top nickname for such a chap.

Yeah I'm surrounded by bellends in my work too. People who say things like "we can get together and make a POA" when talking about organising a night out. And who think cos they work for who they work for they're some kinds of billy bigballs.

wait, like, just a night out or like proper work organised functions?? Cos if it's the former...

couple of billy bigballs on my team here, one i actively dislike. he's lazy and stupid, and pretty disrespectful towards women and mostly everyone. he's stupid with his laziness. I'd rather he just didn't bother me at all and did some colouring in, but instead i'll spend a couple of hours a day holding his hand through basic tasks, and then he'll half ass it and i'll need to re-do, after a couple more hours of answering the same questions again.

The flexibility of working for myself is the best bit. I'm good at it and the money is decent. Just don't especially like the industry and I'm bored by the day to day job now.

handy. working hours change to 10 - 4 and it's pretty quiet in general. even though there are big campaigns because of ramadan sales, it's all set before hand and then it quietens down
they don't mind you eating or drinking in my place, but a good few on my team fast so i prefer not to, and most don't
then there's Eid at the end of ramadan, which is an extended holiday. pretty good month all in all

I like it. I've only been here about two months but there is enough variety to keep me interested. It's in an industry I'm interested in too.

I love the odd part time job on the TV and film sets but it's really unpredictable in terms of getting work / the timing of parts.

I work in the hospitality sector now! I'm all about the tourism now

A fair change from public sector to private sector but at least I'm not dead behind the eyes anymore
