This is a football (soccer) post, it's not my fault if you don't understand it.
 
I have been working where I currently do since 2007.
 
I am a Derby County fan. (not my fault, no need to apologise).
 
In 2007 Derby County played, and beat, West Bromwich Albion at Wembley Stadium in the Championship play-off final to gain promotion to the riches of the Premiership.
 
We went on to be the Worst Team in History™ breaking all sorts of records for fewest games won, fewest points earned and so on, but that is unimportant to our story.
 
A couple of days after the game a West Brom fan that I knew emailed me to say he had seen me after the game but was too depressed to talk to me then, and was now up to making contact. Our conversation continued until I said that I was utterly pissed off with my job and he said they were recruiting.
 
And so there (now here) I went to work.
 

A week on Saturday I shall again by making my way to Wembley for the Championship play-off final where we shall play Queens Park Rangers.
 
Where I work has become considerably less fun over the years, the processes have become ever more restrictive, and the annual pay rise has now fallen so far below the rate of inflation it barely even knows what it looks like.
 
So, any QPR fans going to the game, if we beat you, please give me a job. (is there some sort of begging smiley on this thing).
 

Please note I am also happy to get a job if we lose or from anyone not associated with QPR or any football club at all.
 
Thank you.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
