You need to work for the government :D

Unfortunately after the election lots of us might not be :cry:

Positives: good holiday entitlement etc

Negatives: uncompetitive pay etc

Proffesional driver like yourself might be good in the NHS patient transport services, ferrying wee old ladies to out patient appointments etc

Either way I'm with you on the depressed bit.

Think I'm due a midlife crisis soon..................

Well, if it's any consolation, I am in the same boat as you. :cry:

I have to get another job this month, or I will not be able to afford the thousands and thousands of pounds I'll have to spend on my boat next year.

Or 39 like me. I remember when I was young, and 37, that was, um, all of 2 years ago.

If it makes you feel any better.....

At the age of 36 i've changed career, just finished a degree (my first), and am gainfully employed as long as i want to be :-)

There is light at the end of the tunnel.....................
