Grist to the Mill

26 March, 2004


Offices are strange. The division of this bank is ‘Partnerships and Affiliations’. Somebody’s job title is ‘Relationship Manager’. I could be working for a counselling organisation rather than a financial conglomerate.

It tries to sound caring by emphasising its joint ventures but succeeds in sounding bogus.

I don’t know whether I’ll knuckle down again to a permanent job in a conventional office. Temping has things in its favour, and if I’m there for something between a day and a month, there’s no time to accidentally alienate the ‘straight’ people or become bored to the marrow.
