Let's check out the job situation in Edinburgh. I don't even know if people still use Gumtree for jobs. Maybe there's a better site nowadays.
Well, here's an ad I wasn't expecting. Still in Darlington.
Where to begin? First of all, you're invited to text that young lady for her measurements. That's not right. But £250 for a "dance costume"? How? And it has a retail value of £800? Maybe those are rhinestones or something but £800 for that? And finally...it looks pretty snug. Not sure if she's wearing underwear. Do you really want to buy it used? Well, I suppose it depends who the buyer is. Some guys might offer the full £800 if she doesn't wash it.
So yeah. Jobs in Edinburgh. Well, I don't know. There's definitely more jobs but nothing interesting. Tough to follow that dance costume. There's also a lot of chugger shit and the usual scam "work at home" jobs.
Some of these job ads are really bad. "General labourers wanted" and then there's a one sentence description. I need more information than it's for an "award winning property development company".
Registered nurses. £15.49/hour. That's surprisingly low. Well, I don't know. Not that surprising. It's about twice what I've ever made at any admin job.
I just realised. You know what I'm not seeing much of here: agency jobs. What a relief. Maybe those parasites have all gone out of business. Or maybe it's just a London thing. EVERYTHING was done through agencies in London.
Weird ad for a woman with a 13 year old daughter looking to work in a doctor's household. As...I don't know...a nanny? A maid? It's not specified. She looks Indian but I don't know. Maybe Filipina because she mentions God. Doesn't seem to live in the UK but has a UK phone number.
Experienced cheesemonger wanted....good luck.
£7.50/hour for a receptionist job in a casino. Tough to make money at these rates.
£25/hour for a delivery driver. Maybe drug deliveries. Yeah. It's not £25. They give you £25 for petrol. A real moron wrote that ad.
So many "charity fundraiser" ads. Really annoying. I had some clowns today in Airdrie. They're out there ALL DAY. They were in this little town centre when I arrived in the morning, they were there at lunch, and they were there when I finished work. And it really sucks because there's not many people around so you can't just blend into the crowd and sneak past.
So I made a special effort to cross the street when I saw one of these assholes. Then she yells, "Aw, don't cross the street". Why am I being hassled? What gives her the right? She has a clipboard and that makes her ruler of the main street in town?
Imagine anyone else yelling shit out to you in the street. You'd go over and start busting some heads. How dare you yell shit to me when I'm just going about my business. Are you crazy?
But a chugger thinks they're entitled. That's what they do. They make a nuisance of themselves and it's all to get bank account details from imbeciles and those with dementia. Airdrie has an enormous number of elderly people in it's city centre and some of them clearly are not running at 100% capacity. These chuggers are total assholes taking advantage of these vulnerable people.
I haven't been in the US for over 10 years but I guarantee that this is not an industry that exists there. The US is a much more violent country. They absolutely would not put up with this. The very first time somebody in a jester cap asked a toal stranger on the street for their bank details, there would be a murder. No jury would possibly convict either. It's totally justified. Why would I give this person my bank account details? Why am I being accosted like this? I just want to get to the train station. Going through the city centre means that I'm inviting incredibly intrusive and aggressive behaviour?
