Is this a joke? Where the hell do you work, Buckingham Palace?

Of course it's a joke. You should get him some speed instead.
Contracting with a team of two I'd want to be making 4-500 a day minimum. 6 hours on site at 80 an hour is  £480.

Feck me!, I thought I was having it away at £45/hour + travel.

 

I should add, this isn't on a regular basis, I might do 2-3 days a month on that money, subbing. The company I do it for must be charging more.

Aye, my work is very much seasonal at the moment.

Lives 2 miles away and I have to pick him up and drop him off every day which adds just under an hour a day to my 60+ hour week. 

 

 

Isn't that a 4mph average?

No, it's there and back twice per day. So 2.5 miles x4 including switching out of vehicles and all that bullshit. It's about 8 mins per trip x4 basically and god knows how much fuel in my ridiculously thirsty 4x4.

Neither does not having the crew to get the job done, Dempsey nailed it. When you rely on grunt, you have to suck it up.

I don't suffer from it. Once niggles become something more I express it. As evidenced by this thread and my entire life experience with a few exceptions in my youth which turned to violence lol .
