Been unemployed for a few weeks, but I'm three-quarters of the way to becoming a 'personal driver' for a very successful businessman

The pay is good and I'd get to drive a Bentley smile

Good luck.

And I hope you get to wear a "men in black" type uniform grin

Good move. You never hear “the driver did it.” It’s always the butler.
Congrats and best wishes!

Thanks

They're contacting a referee sometime this week. The stage after that is an interview with the man himself

Of course, if the UK government decides that the nation needs to be locked down, then I might have a bit of a wait on my hands...

Unlike most of the people here, I've met you...you present yourself well, so hopefully it will all go well. At least, I sure hope it does, so we get the picture of you in a Bentley smile

It was a warm day in London, as I recall. I even brought along my good lady wife for moral support!

When we arrived I didn't have any documentation to get me through the door. So I said, 'I've been personally invited by Craig Anderton'. That did the trick

You seemed to think I'd travelled from Brighton. In fact I live in Bolton, which is much further away wink

Yes, it was like the first spring-like day you'd had in the last 15 years or something like that. And your good lady wife was certainly delightful.

Well, you had been.

English towns that start with a "B" - they'll all the same to us Yanks.

Well....thanks to good old COVID-19 the job no longer exists

And today is my wife's last day of gainful employment. The kids' nursery where she works is closing, again due to the virus

So we're a bit f*cked, if you'll pardon my French

Still, there's always this --->

Unemployment applications are soaring in the US.

Does the UK still have "the dole?"

It does

Funnily enough, I wrote this about 30 years ago. Looks like my wish will be coming true. Oh, the irony! grin
