I realise I might get some flack for this, but I was wondering if anybody else out there is sitting at a desk at the front of an office block smiling at people as they walk past and dealing with inane queries? Of course the plus side is that with no actual work to do, I have the whole day to mess about on the net and research my MA, being a receptionist not being my main activity or career ambition in life, but a temporary money-earning venture. Last week I wrote a university essay while I was sat here - and got paid too. It's quite a jammy job really. Nail file, anyone?
