    Default Being made redundant

    Well i survived 3 waves of redundancy but unfortunatly I found out today its my turn for the chop

    I work as an Infrasturcture engineer for an automotive supplier , knew my days were numbered but thought i'd just about scraped my way through - I was wrong . Fortunately I hated the people I worked with (back stabbing gets)and being on call one week in three but unfortunately the money was fantastic so first thing to go will be the scooby as i'll be contracting for a good while I imagine.

    Good news is once i get sorted i'll be buying a veccy to munch the old miles in comfort


    Getting drunk now lol

    Cheers bud and congrats on the job m8 , i'd be happy with 3 months if i'm honest for a permanent job although i think i'm gonna have to go for short term contracting first until this flaming credit crunch has past...in approx 2029 lol
