    i'm not just looking for a blow job. found out yesterday that my company is going under. bailiffs been in today and siezed stock and assets and i've probably got to the end of the week, maybe middle of next week before i'm out of a job. i tell you, being unemployed in london is not a good look. good news is that i'm smoking again so i have something to feel even worse about. and you know what i blame for my amazing run of bad luck over the last year?

    not enough :cowbell:

    Aw shit man - when I saw that thing in the paper about that company going under I wondered if it was yours...

    Shit man, that fucking blows - the same thing just happened to my mate (y'know the one who was at Tartan Films)...

    You are entitled to redundancy though, but it's paid by the national insurance dss people, but they take off the amount of dole money that you would have received for the time until you get your next job, as they automatically assume you claim it. So sign on straight away so that you can get all the money that you are entitled to...

    In the short term though, I don't know of any jobs going anywhere, only thing I can think of is I have a mate who has a company that put up marquees who is occasionally looking for extra people to help out. Back breaking work, but well paid - around 70-80 a day, but 15 an hour on top of anything over 12 hours (which it always is) meaning you're usually taking at least a ton a day home...

    I did it for a while whilst I was between jobs, taxman doesn't need to know about it so lemme know if you're stuck yeah...

    I'm sorry, that's pretty shit...I'm not sure making a dating site is going to solve that problem! What do you do?

    As for the smoking, good for you! I've decided I'm never going to give up so I never have to feel bad about failing to give up ever again, it's the way forward, honestly!

    good offer but i've done my share of back breaking work, i think i'd be better off signing on.

    i work or worked for a company that do wedding gift lists and you're the first person to congratulate me on starting smoking again

    it's good to know there's always some one worse off than me

    i'm thinking of developing a limp, i hear employers are all about employing disabled people at the moment. maybe something like what he got in usual suspects, maybe get a new name from the bottom of a dinner plate, dishwahser safe, something like that,

    Savage news - at least you can get a bit of redundancy money though. If it doesn't look likely (as is often the case when directors fuck off with the cash) then why not help yourself to some company assets?

    If you got a small van or even an estate car then Id suggest couriering, aviation couriers at work earn a good wedge (must have clean crim record tho). Or perhaps offer your services to your company's rivals. Its a real disheartening feeling being made redundant but chin up geez youll bounce back
