Default Would you give a BE regular a job?

Just reading that another BE member has yet another hangover and is diving out of work asap...(britexpat- shame on you). So just wondering as we know the ins and outs of peoples lives on here would you give them a job based on what you know from here?

So who would you employ and who would you most definitely not?

No names no packdrill but I certainly wouldn't employ the people who seem to hate the Middle East so much well certainly not in this region!

I'd employ you.

Someone resurrected that thread from last year! I am fine and dandy today and still sat at the desk at 1930!

Obviously I wouldn't employ you as you have no attention to detail.

I'd employ some people on here for sure.

I reckon Millhouse would just crack jokes all day, but funny ones.

Meow could supply me with good food and whisper financial advice in my ear before deposit money into willy hills.

KC - you'd be good to employ, you're the type that wants to do everyone elses work for them. I'd give you my workload.

I'd need someone to talk to about footie, so Spugsy or CDB or Bahtat.

I'd need someone to talk to about rugby, so The Dean. Also, he could be very useful for light bulb changing in the office.

Patsy, you'd be employed at reception to offer such lovely welcomes to everyone. Unless someone walked in called Darling. Then we'd be in the shit.

Britexpat, wouldn't employ you but I'd chuck you 10dhs every day to sit at the bottom of the building drunk.

Gossipers - Lalalayla, Busybee, Original Sunshine, you would all be at the water/moet fountain gossiping about my new hair cut.

Mikewot would be the office manager, dishing out written warnings for when millhouse is late.

I know I'm missing people but, you know.I think I've covered a lot of ground here.

There's a post open for being my tea boy? Shiva? You could deliver tea with a barrel of swear words, we'd laugh, shout some more, laugh and then you'd scuttle back to relax before we repeat.

Awkward.

You can take pictures of all my lunches, write the company blog (we're big on social media you see) and be the person that comments how nice the ugly girls look today.

I didn't let you down scamp. Just on way to work now with the mother or thick heads. Still, unless I went to a cashpoint on way home the poker night was successful.
