Professor Farnsworth says it best



I've kind of been approached by a company. A big one. They want to interview me. For a job.

They must be mental.

G'WAN MY SON!

Wear Speedos to the interview. You can't be shy about the goods.

Kieran blathered this crap:

Excellent. Will your life now unfold in a way similar to that of Mitch McDeere in The Firm?

Fat Sparrow blathered this crap:

Well, obviously they're mental, but just because they're nutters is no reason to not take advantage of them.

AM blathered this crap:

Good stuff.

Is it as close or closer to home?(commuting is the worst fecking tedium in the world - which is why I don't do it)

Is the money better?

Is the job interesting in any way?

If the answer to the 3 questions above is yes, then I'd say go for it. Especially before you have to start all conversations with "¿habla ingl├ęs?"

Is this one of those call-centre thingies Dr Maroon was on about?

Bock the Robber blathered this crap:

Is that a job job or a sorta job job?

Is it a grown-up job, and if so, fukken great, provided it pays grown-up money.

bleedin rappa'!!!

Sweary: Early days. I'll see. I might go for the novelty crocodile on my lad thong.

kieran: I'd be happy with that, as long as the mafia and death aren't involved.

FS: My sentiments exactly. They have a BONUS SCHEME.

am: Slightly closer, but nothing to get excited about. There would be travelling as part of the role, which I'm not keen on, but will need to see how that pans out. I could still get the train most of the time, which I don't mind too much.

The money would be roughly an extra £500 a month before tax, not to be sniffed at. I'm not on a bad salary at the moment, but the way things go, it's completely eaten up every month - you'll prob have noticed my excitement about having a whole £75 to myself this month. The extra would give me a bit of disposable income and I could rekindle my love for music and the arts. Well, music.

The job looks very interesting, but also very demanding. It's alos a management role, which could be challenging, but fuck it, it's worth a bash.

Of course, being approached is not the same thing as being offered something, so I'll just bide my time before I get too excited.

kim: I wish. Do you know ho whard it is to get a job in those places when you've got an Irish accent?

bock: Nar, tis a proper jobjob. A real corporate-fat-cat-grown-up-drain-the-life-out-of-you-and-spit-you-out type of job. I'll probably have nae time left to blog. The money's good. A year ago, I'd never have dreamed I could get that kind of salary. Yay.

ams: Word.

fatmammycat blathered this crap:

Well in, if they are nuts they might even offer you a commpany car an' all sorts!

Bock the Robber blathered this crap:

Say no to the big fukken pile of cocaine and the three Latvian hookers. They always offer you that to see what happens.

Foot Eater blathered this crap:

It's not Al-Qaeda, is it?

Taihae blathered this crap:

play hard to get, that always works.

Kav blathered this crap:

Cat: You never know. I'm being optimistically pessimistic, to avoid the crushing blow that usually comes on the back of getting my hopes up.

bock: Yeah, I had that test in my last job. Sneaky feckers.

foot eater: Nah, it's better money than those cunts were offering. A better medical package as well.

taihae: It does. Right, I'd better scratch my plan to go in and beg and accept the first offer they threw at me.

Pinkie blathered this crap:

Go with the crocodile novelty. If they havent got a sense of humour then they aint worth working for.

Conan Drumm blathered this crap:

Good man, fair dues and happy days...




... more money, and if they want to ride your arse as well.. sure wouldn't that be great that you'd be appreciated in more ways than one...

Kav blathered this crap:

pinkie: I might have to wear it under a suit, then whip it out at the end of the interview.

conan: Thanks sir, boss, sir. Ah yeah, I mean, that's all part of the job, isn't it?

Old Knudsen blathered this crap:

I would wish you luck but I did that to General Custard before the battle of the little big crumble.

The result of this complacency and the results achieved earlier could start "falling out" of our country with a cohort of leading space powers. in practical terms, this can lead to how many large-scale projects to simple colonization of space will be no Russian participation, or, at best, it is quite reduced to the level of logistical support. in order to avoid such developments, the state simply must know lko fully fund the space industry but also to encourage scientists in setting ambitious goals that seem at first glance, unenforceable.Similar records:
