What economic problems

Good news appears that they (whomever 'they' may be) got so confused trying to actually work out what it is that I do, have decided to not only keep me on, but to get me an assistant as well.

Seriously who put these people in charge??

By the way, you do not even want to know the hiring policy I will have in place for the assistants job.

The king is dead. Long live the king!

Unfortunately for me, I have a job involved heavily in the share market. We earn revenue from the percentage of shares held. Over the course of the last 6 months, my company has gone from a position of a small margin profit, to a revenue which is now significantly less than costs. Clearly this was never going to last long.

Surprisingly, I was retained by the company (they clearly do not know what I actually do, which is no surprise because I too have little idea of what I actually do either). But as of this afternoon, the company has passed over to another and I am effectively employed in what I would classify tenuous circumstances.

The bad news : I may at some point (soon) be completely unemployed.
The good news : Apparently I can still get drunk at lunch, as proved today.

The only question remaining is whether the corporate credit card still works.....I guess there is only one way to resolve that issue. See you all at the pub.

I keep meaning to come on here and post a long-winded rant about the economy and all these goings on. Then I realise that nobody would come in and read it, especially not that jackass Glen Stevens!! The bloke couldn't set a decent interest rate policy if it came up and bit him on the bum. And then that fool Krudd goes ahead and kicks his own moronic ideas in to the pot.

Goodbye international holidays and imported goods, the aussie dollar will officially be leaving the building in 3 months.
