 Post subject: Would you charge for waiting around?
PostPosted: Fri Sep 21, 2018 5:36 pm 
Hypothetical question but say you're sent to two different jobs by the same employer to lets say Edinburgh which is about 60 miles round trip from my home. The first job is in the morning at 10am and takes 2 hours and the second is in the afternoon at 4pm and takes an hour.

During the hours between 12 and four you're hanging around as it's not worth driving home only to come back later. ...

 Post subject: Shooting on TV
PostPosted: Tue Sep 18, 2018 2:12 pm 
I think over the years there have been two shootings shown on TV that really stuck in my memory. I think the worst was from the Vietnam war when a Vietnamese Police Chief shot a Vietcong guerilla very casually. See ... cution.gif (not if you are a snowflake) The film I saw showed spurts of blood out the head wound as the heart kept pumping for ...

 Post subject: Decent Public Liability Insurers?
PostPosted: Mon Sep 03, 2018 12:52 pm 
As my (self-employed handyman) business slowly gets going, its time I got some PL insurance. I mainly want it for big stuff, like accidentally setting the house (or homeowner!) on fire whilst plumbing, but the fewer exclusions the better really.

 Post subject: Sizes rant
PostPosted: Sun Sep 02, 2018 10:12 am 
What is wrong with clothes suppliers? I have tried in the past to buy a Superdry coat as I like the style and embroidery symbols on them. I tried on a XXL in Chelmsford last year and it was very tight. The assistant was unhelpful and I contacted the manufacturers in, Cheltenham I think, to ask why they were so small. The assistant says that their sizing is taken from market research sizing statistic and ...
