This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

The Accident Group
Was a graduate without a career (aren't we all?) and was going around various call centre jobs for a month or two at a time.

Started working for the above company on the first of the month, realised I DESPISED it (pressure pressure pressure) so left after the first week without telling anyone, and went to work (i.e. doss) in my mates comic shop. three weeks later, company goes under (you probably heard about everyone getting sacked by text?).

A few weeks later, nearly a full months salary appears in my account. My highest paid job ever - £850 for a week. Result.
