I was talking to a colleague. Since this company went out of business, it seems that a lot of the people are just working independently. That's cool. "So you're getting two or three times what you used to get?", I asked. "No, it's about the same."
That guy's getting taking advantage of and it's going to have repercussions for everyone. The companies charge the solicitors two or three times what they pay us. Easily. So if this guy is getting paid half or a third of what they're paying the companies, it's going to have a huge knock on effect.
I was thinking of working independently, though. People are always clamoring for me to do work for them, after all. And I'm the only person who does this job in Scotland. But I'd charge £200/day. Easy. Even that would be a bargain. If these people are saying £15/hour, it's shit. You can't do that.
But they don't know what the true value of their work is. It's not £15/hour, I'll tell you that. At least that's not what the value of my labour is. But it doesn't much matter to me. Do some jobs in Dubai. Only have to work two days a month. Can move out of shitty "Great" Britain. It would be awesome.
I mean, two days a month in Bahrain...yeah, it sucks. Sucks hard. But then you're free the rest of the month. Can pursue other interests. Really live. Play video games and whatever.
Also, Tinder. This Vietnamese woman added me to WhatsApp. That's a good sign. Said she's going to think of where we can go. Asked if I drive. I guess when you live in a little village, that's a fair question. Still...had a money-grubbing aspect to it.
Let's check out Vietnam's Wikipedia page. I don't want to look like a total fool in case there's some Vietnamese trivia that arises. Wow, no kidding. It's still so-called communist. That's very surprising.
Otherwise, the world's most boring Wikipedia page.
It may not even happen. And I don't care. I didn't message her today other than these few texts in response to her message. I just asked what she has planned and that was that.
I mean, not a looker. And a crap conversationalist. And 28. So...who cares? Not me.
Was working out today. Man. Was killing it. Some serious gains, dawg. I need to get more weights. I could have done 1000 reps easy. A weight bench would also be good to get.
