I just turned down a full time Electrical Maintenance Engineers job (well interview anyway, but I work there one day a week doing exactly that at the moment to help out the guy doing it at the moment, so they know me well) at the worlds leading motorsport gearbox manufacturer.

:rolleyes:

Thinking about it now, I may go and throw myself off the roof....

Stuff like that tends to become boring quickly when you're stuck with it rather than choosing when to do it though, which is likely why, (I'm guessing), you turned the position down? You're too used to being independant, :D (which is no bad thing, especially in these times).

Yup, thats the big reason, to be honest the thought of going back to monday to friday or sat, 8 - 5 (or whatever it is) after nearly 7 years of freedom is completely depressing. Even though they are a spectaculaly employee friendly firm.

On the other hand not having a mad panic of collecting every bit of cash lying around to pay the bills each month is also quite appealing.

To have money or to have freedom.......

I take it we'd be hung, drawn and quartered for suggesting it? :devilish:

Like Andy, I'd definitely go for the freedom bit. :D Money juggling is one of the downsides, but I'd rather cope with that than being tied down. Last time I ever came close to something vaguely resembling employee status, (working onsite as a contractor for several months), it did my nut in. Couldn't wait to get away from the place and start bringing the work here to sort instead. The steady cashflow is nice though. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. :D

As much as working for myself can be a pain..I'm not sure I could go back to 9-5..
