Before I reply I will answer this.
just me said:
OP, if everyone you work with is stupid, and you aren't, then surely you are running the company and it is making millions? So why don't you just buy a giant mansion and move?
Or perhaps you are not as smart as you think?
I do run my own company, with a partner. But I am not a millionaire, far from it, I never went self employed to make loads of money. However what I have got is time, infinite amounts of it if I so choose and I would not give that up for anything. Now its not the people I work with that are stupid, granted some are cowboys, its the people who I work for, never have I met so many that are totally clueless or would stab you in the back given any opportunity. Yes some are great but there are very few clients that I choose to work for a second time, I could certainly count them on two hands. And unfortunately its dealing with peeps like this that has made me the way I am, 20 years ago I would not have said boo to a goose, nowadays I wont think twice about telling someone to f
Which brings me onto the other points raised. My social life. At the moment I enjoy my own company, yes I go out with friends occasionally and even abroad with them a couple of times a year but on the whole I just want to relax by myself, and I don't see a problem with that.
I don't need anybodies help and I am more than capable of sorting any problems I have myself, so if I choose to get up in the morning, go to work, come home, put the key in the lock and then ignore everything until I go to work the next morning then surely thats up to me, who can preach to me any different.
As for not wanting to live next door to me or my kind? well thats just stupid. How many times on here do we read about antisocial neighbours who do anything from playing loud music to firebombing the community, hey perhaps you would prefer to live next door to s
t phillpot. I don't make a racket, I go to bed relatively early and despite buying this house as a repo needing s
t loads of work, eg walls altered, new plastering, plumbing, new bathroom and kitchen etc. etc. I have never made a noise after 6.30-7pm. As they have a young brat next door.
Its not like I go out at 3am and smear next doors car in dog s
t or worse brake fluid is it now, I keep my self to my self and they should be content with that.
As for the insults by keyboard warriors on here I'm hardly likely to be offended by them if I couldn't give a s
t what my neighbours think about me could I, may as well keep them to your self if you have nothing constructive to say.
I am saying these things as they come to me in case my ramblings seem a bit inane; but if you are bothered about the pecking order in society then this is how it appears to me in my small close, the lad across the road, probably early 20's got raided by the drugs squad a few months ago, allegedly the helicopter caught him but I suspect his neighbour shopped him, however I find him sound and regularly have a laugh with him, yet it was him that shouted over "is she drunk again" when he was trying to explain his alarm going off due to his dog, as me and nutty were in conversation. Everyone seems to be scum compared to everyone else, they all have their own agenda.
For clarity I must admit I was pissed when I wrote last night and I am pissed again now, today when I was sober I really couldn't give two f
ks about internet life but hey ho, happy posting.
