    I have been looking for a local part-time job recently and one has come up in the Tennis Centre of the local Agricultural College.

    I have been trying to think of any advantages or disadvantages of working as a Receptionist there.

    How long will I spend on the 'net?
    Will there be any bouncers?
    Will there always be a racket?
    What are the conditions of service?
    Will I be expected to love all the customers?

    Can you think of any other things I should consider?

    Yes, it is within cycling distance, :smile: or there is free p*rk*ng.:evil:

    Local agricultural collages are where the sons of the big land owners are sent to while away a few years 'studying' estate management, before returning home to inherit. The tennis centre will feature heavily as part of their 'core curriculum' activities.

    Depending on your circumstances and mercenary tendencies, I think in less than ten years, you could easily get half of Lincolnshire in a divorce settlement if you played your cards right.

    New balls may be required at some stage, once the old ones have taken a fair beating. :smile:

    Once you're involved with a tennis club, it's sure to be just a short time till you get embroiled in a wife-swapping and amphetamine controversy.

    On a serious note, the job advert said ring for an informal chat. I did that this morning, having got the paper on Friday evening, (the paper comes out on Thursday evenings, and usually one is delivered) only to be told that they had already decided who to offer the job to :ohmy::sad:xx(:wacko:.

    It was, almost literally, right up my street. Part-time, including Saturdays, but that does not bother me, as you would only work until 3pm that day.
    Yah, boo shucks.
