So money rules for you then, why am I not surprised
unfortunately one of my clients has invited me to Epsom for the day - and clients mean money!!!
Rhodes - of course money is important - it pays for all those little things that us abnormal people enjoy like kids, their clothes, days out, holidays, bus fares, school books, insurances, mortgage, fuel, heating, food, telephone, mobile phones, the cars....in case you haven't got it .....it pays for all the necessities in life...........I never have been someone who relies on others to top up my wage.....I go to work and earn any extras that are needed.
Just to let you into a little secret, I too was a Civil Servant for ten years (Vat Office, HQ Southend), I left when I had our kids - I went to night school and added to my 12 GCE's that I already possessed, I got my A Level in Mathematics & Accountancy and got myself a job on my doorstep that paid twice as much, then I took my Transport Manager qualification (CPC)and got my own Client base so that my income was the four times as much as the previous HEO monies earned with the 'Service' - Money is not ruling me, I have ambition and want to help Mr Keeps give all of us a decent quality of life (will admit though that we wouldn't just be scraping by on Mr Keeps' money) My work is a big big bonus - Money and it gets me away from the kitchen sink!
............and of course my earnings mean that I am paying so much tax, my weekly tax bill probably equates to your weekly wage............so I am probably keeping you in work.........therefore give me value for money, get off the computer and work for the full 9 hours ?? mins a day that we pay for before I call up your line manager and insist on a time and motion study in your office
I suggest you take a leaf out of my book, go out, get yourself some further training then get yourself a challenging job, not all jobs are 'conveyor belt ones' You will then find out what real money means to real people and how it improves both their own life and those of their dependents.
