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?

From Bad to Good Riddance
Was working for a local computer company for about 5 years; on minimum wage and just hitting 21. The management of this store knew this, and created some cock and bull story saying that I was not working well in the job, and reduced me to part time. The tight cunts.

2 days into this, and I'm accused of mass theft. After alot of arguing, I walk out feeling completely drained and upset that I've been fired for something I haven't done. I meet up with the missus (at the time) and drown me sorrows.

The missus lived in a pub at the time at the top floor; a public listed Inn called "The Bush", which is now currently a gay-house (oh how times change). At that time, her landlady was going through a "lets invite anyone back to party till dawn" phase, which was driving the residents insane due to the lack of sleep. In these parties, she was giving away freebies and running up a sizeable debt, which she was happily blaming the workers for.

A week's worth of me staying there and hunting for a new job was going nowhere. The landlady, all tired and partied out, decided to go on hols and this left her job open for a relief manager from the brewery named Rachel to clear up her mess. After two days of Rach realising how much of a mess the pub was in, cue me accidentally mentioning the midnight freebie parties. A day later the ol' landlady gets the push, and Rachel takes over full time.

The next week I was working for her, and earning £50 a week more than the previous job. Was the best job I ever 'ad too guv'nor, and no mistake.

Also found out last week that the original computer company have gone tit's up, and they've done a runner owing sizeable debts to alot of people....hope they get burnt :D
