# Well...
Apart from moaning about not having a job (spaz the board about 3 months back), I've handed in my notice today. No-one likes people trying to sell them extended warranties on their Sky Digital equipment. I know this for a fact. That is all I have done, all day, every day, for the last 3 months, I just couldn't take any more. Maaaaargh!

# Join myself, Fuzzbucket and Bovine2000
on the pissed off job list.

I'm sure there are many many more B3TAns suffering like your good self.

At least you have done the big thing and quit.

# You wait til you become Mr average B3TAn
at 26 and 4 months, you will be as sinical as the rest of us and pissed off.

Unless of course you manage to get a job that you really enjoy.
