You seem to be a little out of touch with choices actually available to many people.

In my game you have to go where the work is, they don't constantly build roads in Aberdeen. I get home once a month, for 2 nights, ok the money is good, but to hear the whinging is hilarious.

Add in emails etc out of work, people are effectively chained around the ankle to their jobs. Is this the best way to live for the human race?


Part of the reason this country has an alcohol problem is that people work too hard which leads to a living for the weekend mentality. The extra day off would be great if it was spend on developing yourself or spending time with your family. We already lost Sunday as a day of rest in this country (due to shops being open etc the shift from Sunday being a day off rest with the family has been reduced to another potential working day. Shops open for business etc)

We have to be realistic. Population is on the increase and jobs will be come more and more automated. Simply humans wont need to work asmuch and there will be a massive over saturation of workers. It make take a hundred years or longer but we are still living in an industrial age, maybe future generations will look at us almost like the middle ages in our approach to work and how we develop ourselves.

No, really not in the same way at all.


One is a choice of life style, and the other a choice on how to spend money. If you're going to argue a case, do try to to avoid spurious points.

I do do what I am paid for, and I do it very successfully. I am of course not surprised that you are unable to understand anything that isn't black and white.
You are a very simple minded man.

Oh and I am able to post in the day today as I am off work.
Congratulations on working non-stop all day with zero downtime or breaks or lunch.

Er, you said that you stay off here more, erg you are on here when you are being paid to to a job, like a lot of people on here, judging by the times the majority of posts are here. Unless you own the company, you are stealing.

As I said, you are simple minded and have no idea how managing your time to be most efficient, having down time to increase productivity etc works.


Er indeed

I doubt that you never have any meaningful, face to face exchanges with anyone on minimum wage or London Living wage

And I'm pretty confident that by the time you've read this sentence you will have convinced yourself that of course you do.

I see my missus once a month. I am currently sitting in the airport, I will get home about 4pm and I will be back at the airport to come back at approx 12.30 pm on Wednesday. Not much downtime. I dont whinge anywhere near some of the nancyboy office wankers.

Massivelly unproductive? I left for another job just two weeks ago, they begged me so much to come back, and beat the 60% payrise I was going to that I came back in 2 days. Put the effort in and get the rewards.

Fully paid up member of the silly party. You also show normal signs of small man syndrome.

I dont, I use my break to relax, thats why most of my posts are between 4 and 6 am and after 7pm. Where as the majority ob the posters of the bbs post all day weekdays and stop at weekends.

You'd be wrong. Of course.

In fact, I have had very many conversations with people who earn a lot less than minimum wage.

Not too sure of why this is at all relevant to the point you were trying to make.

Oh yes, have just noticed you have actually yet to make any cogent point ; just tiresomely sniping from the sidelines.
