I don't get paid as much, though. I think I'll get the minimum fee which is £80. At my previous job it was £130. But technically, the attendance fee was only £90. And I rarely left early at that job anyway. They'd try to find other shit to do.
And I was in Edinburgh yesterday. I think that will be...£140 plus another £40 for expenses plus another £60 for travel time. I could be wrong. But I think you get a set amount for expenses as well as travel time. It depends where you go. So £160 big ones for expenses to Inverness plus £140 for travel time.
Yeah, that has to be right. Because the expenses are to cover train ticket and the travel time is to compensate you for all of the additional time you have to spend getting there.
That will be a pain traveling seven hours for a job. But actually, I think it's better to do this by train. You'd put an enormous amount of miles on your car.
And the expenses seems to be significantly more than what a train ticket costs. I know Edinburgh was £20 for a peak time ticket but the expenses list gives £40. So make a bit of extra cash from that too.
So...at least in this respect the job might be worthwhile. Get to see the great country of Scotland. Meet the people. Explore exotic Subways. Try to decipher their tenuous grasp of the English language.
I have to say, I used to be pretty anti-"aye". Now, I don't say it myself because that's gay to ape the collogialisms and accent and whatnot of your host country. But I can appreciate the superiority of "aye" over "yes" now. It has a lot more uses depending on how it's pronounced. So...it's interesting.
