Yeah.  I did it once.  Never checked the numbers, don't need that kind of downer in my life, thank you very much.

Still kept the ticket, mind.

It's my ticket outta here.

Chaturbate, but go against the grain by reaching out to the really niche fetishists. Balloons and shoes and stuff.

That's brilliant, thought I had it quite good, doing the bare minimum. What film did you watch?

It was Eastern Promises.  I left (the job) through utter boredom and now have too much work to do like there’s karma at work or something.

Coulrophilia?

Many years ago, I went to a Halloween party at a friend's house. It was standard fancy dress and I went dressed as Dr Rick Dagless (I was young and wreckless).

Anyways, there were a ridiculous number of balloons around the house. More than necessary.

The friend's housemate had provided the decorations. At the end of the evening, when the last few guests were still there (including me), the housemate started to enthusiastically clear up the balloons in several bin bags, unpopped.

I didn't think much of it at the time, only to be informed the next day that the housemate and his girlfriend could be heard fucking all night and every time you heard a balloon or two burst in their bedroom, you would then hear the sound of one of them making a big old cum noise.

So there's that.

does anyone have any experience with this. sick of it lads. working all the time doing something i couldn't give less than a shit about for barely enough money to exist long enough to do the same boring shite for another month. fuckin point. so the plan is to quit the job and do fuck all. how can this be achieved. was thinking i would quit the job and 'go travelling', this is a thing that is generally acceptable to family isn't it. get on my bike and cycle to greece or something. become a greece man maybe. any advice warmly welcomed thanks

I have done this. I saved up enough money to pay bills for 8 months and just quit job. I'm having to start looking now but will probably be 12 months off at the end. Home Bargains is my second home. I have lost 2 stone and generally feel good. Drinking too much though as you don't really have a reason to go to bed which is stopping today.

Alternatively, my sister loves Kerala or Goa or one of them. She reckons you could live for almost fuck all out there for ages.

If I have to justify my existence to anyone I am learning languages (I am) and it's something I have always wanted to do.

What do you put on your CV? Recruitment companies go mad for not having 'gaps in your cv' and all that bollocks.

don't worry about your cv.  can't live your life to make a nice cv.

i don't and never will have any savings, so i can't live off that. just cycle to paris and fight tramps for cash. once a tramp in paris tried to throw me in the river because i wouldn't give him a beer. i'd like to go and fight him. although my bike broke on the cycle home from work today and fuck walking to fucking paris man. lottery it is i guess

That would have drove me crazy if it happened to me. I would have ended up in Seine.

Couldn't give two fucks what they think. What recruitment companies want is people to go out to work for them so they get easy money doing next to fuck all. Most agencies are falling over themselves for qualified people so telling them you had a year off usually gets a positive "That sounds nice" in my experience.

Bar two jobs I have always had to go through cunty recruitment companies and they ALWAYS harped on to me about changing my CV to massage the gaps in them where I wasn't working.

But then, I'm not qualified so maybe that's the difference.

You can just lie, too. Make up a job, say the company went under, and get a friend to provide you with a reference.

I will tell them I have been learning Welsh (I have) and Japanese (a bit). If they ask just make it up - be pretty unlucky to have an interview panel with people who speak both.

Do what you must to get the job, but be aware that they can use this against you down the line. If they're looking to make redundancies and find out you liked they can easily dismiss you without pay.

Join the eggheads?

At the risk of taking this seriously maybe some kind of self employed career? I went with art photography a few years ago which was a hobby previously and something that can make some money without being massively successful.

Has had the disadvantage that I'm not sure I'm good for anything else now, really cannot imagine being ordered around by some cunt manager and counting the clock down each day anymore.

Didn't you hear him, cloth? He says he's got nothing. Nothing.

Well … nothing except his body, that is.

Tell us about your body, kittens. What could you we get for it?

He is his own unfortunately, so he'd be doing two jobs for the price of one then, hardly a step up.

I'm not sure that's correct is it?

Become a wandering minstrel. I think that would suit you. Rock up at an inn, strum a tune or two for the landlord in return for a heel of bread and some cheese, a mug of ale and a bed for the night. Maybe catch the eye of the occasional wench and sire a few sprogs on your travels, you filthy bastard.
