OK, something I wouldn't mind doing myself, times are pretty hard at the moment. How did you go about getting your seasonal work in retail?
To be honest ... we actually enjoy the interaction with people and it reminds us how lucky we are not HAVING to work
cut down a bit it's a bit like me.
I don't have the financial need to work but I enjoy using my skills and working with people, I could do more with volunteering work but I prefer the crack in a good working environment. I also get brownie points that gets me free rides/crewing trips on lots of different types of boats
It also keeps me physically and mentally active and maintaining a positive outlook on life.
Sometimes it also takes over such a lump of my life that I have trouble doing everything else I want to .... but hey !!!
trying for maximum virtue signalling Finally achieving recognition for my attempts
Good post. When I watched the election results it was amazing to see the dozens, or maybe hundreds of staff sat down putting bit of papers in boxes, or running around carrying boxes. Who are these people, where are the jobs advertised, how much do they get paid? It does very wasteful. Surely it wouldn't be beyond the realms to send a letter to each registered voter with a unique code and password on it, for voting on the internet?
My wife works for our local council and she has been asked to do it a few times, both for local and general elections. And once my son becme old enough he did a couple as well.
