Evening chaps! Alas & egad! Today has been the most awful day in the life of Dash! The economic situation has finally taken effect & my supposed promotion backfired with great effectâ¦ I ended up losing my job. Now Iâve lost everything! Iâm going to lose my flat, (moving Iâm afraid is irresistible) my social life & I shall even have to face the dread of moving back in with dearest Mater, which means I also lose my liberty. Of course the only answer to this is to rush out & get another job asap! Unfortunately this proves easier said than done, I perceive it will be quite difficult in our current economic climate. I have 3 things to help me in my gallant cause: 1.) A train ticket to anywhere in London lasting until Sunday 2.) A paid work phone which I conveniently neglected to hand back in, but I suppose they shall realise itâs MIA at some point 3.) The rent for my flat lasts until the end of the month Unfortunately my balance is not as robust as I had hoped, partly because this entire episode has come completely out of the blue, so Iâm also going to have to ration myself. I also foolishly squandered my income on two fabulous Savile Row suits & a laptop, in the false & myopically naive belief that I would be due a payrise. Sirs, my situation is quite cruel & I know not what to do! I have never liked work & would much prefer a job where I get the maximum benefit for minimum input, although I donât think Iâm quite qualified for politics yet. Iâve spent the last 6 hours firing off my CV to recruitment agencies & tomorrow I plan to make good use of my ticket. Iâve tried searching Google for agencies in the city but Iâm afraid itâs not so helpful on their location, so if anyone knows of any good ones I would be most exceedingly obliged. I have the honour to remain your most troubled yet obedient servant, &tc. ~D.C.
