I should have gone with my gut feeling.
From the moment of the request, I had a feeling accepting the offer would kick me in the balls, and it has.
MY RULE 101
NEVER work for Asians, yet again, I got crapped on by some slime ball Asian. This time hurt more than the last as I was asked twice to apply for the job.
I FOUND OUT today he'd given the work to several other people. He said he'd keep me in mind for further work - then went for a pork pie.
This is becoming a habit, people asking me, and then I check up to find the work has gone elsewhere. You wonder why I think about quitting?
