The more old guys who retire, the more vacanies for younger people.

But I'm only retiring from my present job. Once the writing's finished, I'm going to have to find something else to meet the bills. NOT in the railway industry, though. Never again.

Move to London, I hear there's a job going on the tube.

To give you a brief idea of how our useless Management operates:

About 2-3 years ago LU started shedding jobs (i.e. sacking staff) by closing ticket offices etc. in the name of cost-cutting & greater efficiency.

Then about a year ago they suddenly woke up to the fact that in 2012 London hosts not only the Olympic Games but also the Queen's Jubilee celebrations (to say nothing of the usual congested events such as the Marathon, concerts, football matches etc.).

In a blind panic about (legitimate) safety concerns, they embarked on a campaign of rapid recruitment of mostly young people to whom they gave a meagre 8 days training before introducing them to the lovely (not) travelling public.

Speaking personally, it took me about 6 months before I felt reasonably confident that I knew what I was doing in this job, that I could handle most eventualities- although there are incidents that still astonish me to this day.

I've met a few of the new recruits: perfectly nice kids, but they all look about 17 to me. And I find myself thinking, "You poor devils; you have absolutely no idea what you've let yourselves in for."

In about 6 months, those who survive the experience will look as haggard and exhausted as me.

The good thing about young people is they don't give a fuck

Eddie, yesterday's NYTimes had a rather long article about the anticipated traffic situation in London during the Olympics. Sounds quite alarming.

Hope you're enjoing your freedom. Keep writing!

Some of us were young people once, apparently.

Long ago, when even Bobby Dylan was young, it was almost impossible, it seemed, to be unable to get a job if you wanted one. That was then. Hope you find something, Mr Mercury, before too long.

Shreddie, keep trying for 3 more weeks, if you get nothing by then it's probably best to turn to a life of crime. Best of luck amigo.

I have a good basis to think she's fdsa (read backwards - someone might be watching)
although she's been behaving a bit dedehnip on some of her posts lately, despite of the content, but there's a cure geek
