    Fuck that place.

    Anyway, I was there for about a year. Is it best to lie on new job applications? Ie; say I went travelling or something..

    Or shall I be honest and tell them that I really hated my job and my performance and attendance really slacked off because of it?

    It's ok I've got a little bit of cash, some nice weed and nothing to do. Living with my mum at the moment she said she'll help me out with my bills and stuff for a bit until I get a job. As long as I make some effort to get a new job she'll be cool with that.

    Just say it was a fixed term contract.

    Basically working for one of the best up and coming young riders, shes double gold european champion etc...
    easy days work, bit of house cleaning thrown in there too... I get accomodation, which is stunning... top spec flat, flagstoneflooring, underfloor heating, fully furnished, brand spanking new basically! I get to take my horse and dont have to pay (which is prob £200 pw) and i get a pretty damn good wage ontop of that!
    6day week, but they go away alot in summer... so its all pretty relaxed!
    I cant wait!

    yeah just "bend the truth" a bit mate, say you needed a new challenge and wanted to better yourself and you couldnt see it happening there. Or something....
