The Office

Interview today. Half way through I realized I could be in a scene from The Office - had to try reeaaaalllyyy hard to stop myself from grinning like an idiot. Very formal, big company, lots of structured questions. The position is awful - data entry basically (*sigh), but the pay is ok. And it's a 5 month maternity leave contract, so a bit of security..and then its over. Think about the money...THINK ABOUT THE MONEY!! Blurgh...

Where's david Brent?
I'd be useless there, there's no way i could have my back exposed like that. I have to sleep with my back against the wall, or at least face facing the door. I hate snorkelling for that reason too, too exposed.
Insecure, moi?

It could be worse - my building has a meeting room that's called The Office. And it's got a socking great big picture of Ricky Gervais on it.


hope the interview went ok!

Haha Teflon...' a socking great picture'. Hehehehe.
Interview went OK - have decided that I'm going to turn it down if I get it. I'm not going to prostitute myself for an extra 90p an hour. F**K that! Will continue being UberTemp till something more enjoyable comes along...
Thanks tho!

I have a second interview at a similar job on Thursday. The company wants an internal auditor for the accounts department. They want someone long term, and I am lying my ass off saying I am totally open to being there for 5+ years, knowing full well that I am moving in a year. I know this is bad, but what the hell? I'm bored and I need money. It looks like I'll be working with alot of right-wing conservative bitches, so they had better give me the salary I want.
